Kimbo Slice Will Fight Again!

After his last fight everything sort of went downhill for Kimbo Slice. He was defeated very quickly and the company he fought for, EliteXC, went bankrupt. We haven't heard much since then and his future has been very uncertain.

However, there appears to be good news for Kimbo Slice fight fans...

Another MMA company, Strikeforce, has apparently bought all of the EliteXC assets from ProElite (their parent company). Strikeforce has a deal with both NBC and Showtime, and is looking to get the league's two most popular fighters, Kimbo Slice and Gina Carano.

Showtime senior VP Ken Hershman said he (Kimbo Slice) "Is one that we think we have a future with."

Sounds like it won't be long before we get to see another Kimbo Slice fight! This is good news for Mixed Martial Arts fans and fighting fans in general.

I can't wait!
