Oops? It appears that in a recent media call, Kimbo Slice revealed a little too much about his future plans. When Neil Davidson of The Canadian Press asked Kimbo if he would be fighting at UFC 107 on December 12, Kimbo said "Yes, I can't comment on that one now".

OK, if Kimbo fights on the PPV and not on TUF 10, it is 100% proof that it's all about the money. I don't think it would have ever happened before where a TUF contestant did not fight on the finale card, but did fight a few days later on a PPV.

To me this sounds like a Petruzellian slip. Trying not to give too much info away and probably got his dates mixed up.

I'm sure he just intends on knocking out his TUF 10 Finale opponent in under a minute and then fighting again at the PPV.

if he doesnt fight on the ppv dec card, what are the odds kimbo gets a decent opponent who has actually fought in the UFC? I'd say slim and none. And he goes straight to the main card if not co-main event.

I really dislike kimbo.

Also, if he does fight on the PPV, it means he doesn't win TUF or is even in the finals.

I agree with the notion that he got the dates mixed up and is talking about the TUF final.

i doubt a kimbo vs seth rematch would make a pay per view main card but a tuf it makes sense
but if he were on the main card in dec, it would push pay per view buys more
