Kimbo Slice Next Fight

When does Kimbo Slice Fight again? Does anyone know yet?

I'm still holding hope that his professional MMA fighting career isn't over before it really had a chance to begin.

Sure, he lost his last one pretty quickly, but every MMA fighter loses sometimes.

All the best UFC fighters have lost at one time or another but it didn't end their careers.

As far as I know Kimbo Slice is still a free agent after EliteXC went bankrupt so I don't see why another MMA company hasn't picked him up yet. There are certainly worse fighters who have contracts and there aren't very many fighters that bring in viewers like he does, even the big names.

Hopefully Kimbo Slice Fights again soon! Even if it's a new street fight that ends up getting uploaded to youtube, at least it's something new to watch.

The San Jose-based mixed martial arts organization Strikeforce has purchased the contracts of more than 40 former Pro Elite fighters, including those of stars Kimbo Slice and Gina Carano, Strikeforce co-founder and Chief Executive Scott Coker just reported to The Times.

Jake Shields, a 170-pound fighter, and middleweight Robbie Lawler are also part of the deal, Coker said.

Several of the fighters, including Carano, will be invited to fight at Strikeforce's April 11 card at the HP Pavilion in San Jose. Slice will likely resume fighting soon after, Coker said.

"We're getting a good response," Coker said. "These people want to fight."

We'll have more details on this deal later today on the Fabulous Forum.
