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.
