Season 10 of â€˜The Ultimate Fighterâ€™ is about to wrap up with the season finale airing live (no prerecorded video here) Saturday, Dec 5 on Spike. And guess who is coming back to fight? Thatâ€™s right, none other than Kimbo Slice. Read more below.
The weigh-in will take place on Dec 4th, and the matches will go down the following day. For those of you who are lucky enough to live in Las Vegas, Nevada, the weigh-in is free for the public to attend.
Itâ€™s just been announced that fan favorite Kimbo Slice will be fighting at the event, although it is still unclear whether heâ€™ll be competing for the six-figure contract or as a recall from â€˜TUFâ€™. Either way it will be his first official UFC fight, for which Iâ€™m sure many people will be cheering on the backyard brawler.
