Kimbo to fight on UFC card in May

Kimbo Slice’s MMA career will resume with a May 8 bout in Montreal

against former NFL play Matt Mitrione.

The bout will be on the undercard of UFC 113, headlined by

the rematch of Lyoto Machida with Mauricio Rua.

Slice came to national prominence three years ago. A burly,

bearded former Miami strip club bouncer, he became the face of MMA

after CBS began showing his bouts for its short-lived EliteXC

promotion.

Slice was signed by UFC in its heavyweight division last

year. He appeared on its TV reality show before making his UFC

debut with a victory over Houston Alexander in December.

Mitrione played nine games with the New York Giants as a

defensive tackle in 2002.
