Kevin "Kimbo Slice" Ferguson – the star of the highest-rated season of "The Ultimate Fighter" in the show's history – is making a return to the reality series. Sort of.

Ferguson will host Spike TV's debut of "The Ultimate Fighter Fridays" on March 9 at 9 p.m. ET/PT.

The weekly three-hour specials counter-program new episodes of "The Ultimate Fighter 15," which also debuts March 9 – on FX, the series' new broadcast home.

Check it!

Yup. This has nothing to do with Dana and the UFC. Spike has access to the UFC's library of Unleashed and TUF episodes.

Tho I'm not gonna watch, its a smart move by spike to have Kimbo on the show. I'm not sure its gonna pull in "huge" ratings but its worth a try, right

probably not, but it might bring in better numbers than what is aired on Fuel. Spike will definitely get a viewership boost with this tactic

Another smart move by Spike. UFC should have bought the library when they had the chance and let Bellator come to Spike. Counter-programming works on the masses, the same people who love Slice.

Is it just me or does anyone else associate Kimbo Slice with Mr. T? Not Mr. T the actor but Mr. T the real person.

Mr. T is very spiritual and his biblical rhetoric is amazing. I don't know how I have come to associate these two characters as having resemblance but I do and it is not because of their skin color.

Am I the only one who is so completely uninterested in the Ultimate Fighter since the Season after Forrest and Rampage? It has gone so far down hill its almost maddening to watch, hence why I stopped long ago. Except the Heavyweight season. Anyways, I would honestly rather watch this Kimbo hosted rerun show than the new ones. At least Spike will find some way to make it kickass.
