    Plus, I do not think he has been training for MMA since he retired. So now he will still be a brawler with legit KO power. But if he fights against a decent MMA fighter (who will not be scared as hell to face Kimbo), he will be beaten even worse than in the Mitrione fight.
    Personally, I don't think they would be able to get away with it after Petrucelli bringing attention to the situation after he raped Kimbo.

    Bellator Reaches Out To Kimbo Slice, But No Deal In Place Just Yet

    Bellator MMA is interested in signing Kevin "Kimbo Slice" Ferguson.

    The promotion recently offered the former EliteXC and UFC fighter an opportunity to fight for them, however, Slice was not interested in what was presented, according to sources with knowledge of the situation. Middle Easy first reported the rumor on Monday.

    "They had reached out to us," Slice's manager "Icey" Mike Imber told MMAFighting.com, "however, it was very informal and nothing has been decided.

    "You know Kimbo is down to fight whenever. There's actually a few options out there, so whatever makes most sense I think he's gonna with."

    Imber would not disclose the other offers Slice is currently mulling over.

    According to sources, the potential new Bellator regime is interested in Slice, however, the idea to reach out to Slice came from the current regime.
    There was a bit more in the article. I condensed it to this because I seem to remember that there was a rule in place that said the whole article couldn't be posted. Maybe I'm wrong though.

    Only in a backyard would I watch lol
