Although it was announced back at UFC 110 as being part of UFC 113, it wasn't until just yesterday that UFC officially confirmed Kimbo Slice vs. Matt Mitrione for the upcoming PPV in Canada. UFC never added the fight to the official ufc.com card and the James Toney signing spurred rumors that Kimbo would fight the boxer next instead. Rumors shot down last night, Kimbo will officially get "Meathead" at 113.

Meathead via KO unless Kimbo fights smart

Knock that beard off his face, meathead. As long as someone goes down and we dont see a fight like the Houston vs Kimbo fight.

Kimboplex for sure!! I want Kimbo to win.

Isn't Mitrione the guy who tried to say his brain moved inside his skull or something like that!??

Mitriownage? You guys are crazy! You're thinking about the Kimbo of two years ago - this guy has been personally training with Master Ricardo Liborio and youre going to see a vastly improved Slice with each subsequent fight if he keeps up his current regimen which has already done wonders for his game...

I hope they give James Toney LIL nog,



because lil nog can box really well for mma, and has a ground game.
I dont think they should give this boxing champ an easy fight, because I saw him finish Holyfrild on vid yesterday, and the guy was for real.

Mitrione was strange on the show but seems to have a chin and heavy hands. My gut tells me Mitrione takes this but i'm just hoping for a good fight.

It kind of makes me think they believe Kimbo can win this cuz i assume they want to milk kimbo for everything they can but maybe it isn't really like that. Maybe they are putting him against guys they believe are at a similiar level and just hoping for entertaining fights.

It's hard to think kimbo can hang with heavy handed dudes after getting beat by a much smaller petruzelli although he looked great standing with Roy...so who knows.
