Kimbo Impressive But Ratings Arn't Everything According To White

The UFC prezz talks to the La Times:

“Are you going to see Kimbo Slice fight again in the UFC? Yes,” Dana White said.

Asked if that was a decision based on the first episode's ratings, White said: “No, never. The ratings do not influence our decision. The guy can either fight or not.”

White said one of the strongest endorsements he received about Slice's skill in the octagon came from former light-heavyweight champion Rashad Evans, who's a coach in the show and told White he wants to continue working with Slice at his elite MMA training compound directed by respected trainer Greg Jackson in New Mexico.

“We've been very impressed with Kimbo's performance,” added UFC owner Lorenzo Fertitta.
