Following UFC 90 this past weekend in Chicago, Dana White was questioned about his thoughts on some of the talent that will be left without jobs following the collapse of EliteXC and when the topic of Kimbo Slice came up, White offered the following:
“What has the guy done to deserve to be in the UFC? Nothing. I don’t consider him a real athlete or anything. He won’t win The Ultimate Fighter (TUF). The offer is out there if he wants to take it and he won’t win it. I might [put a heavyweight show together just for him].”
Now although this is a nice gesture from the UFC President its most likely not going to happen. Slice has been spoiled with super high pay days from his time with EliteXC and may just be looking for his next big pay day instead of looking to step up his competition.
