Kimbo Slice lands on cover of ESPN The Magazine

EliteXC heavyweight Kimbo Slice graces the cover of the current issue of ESPN The Magazine, which becomes available at newstands today, May 21.

Former UFC light-heavyweight champion Chuck Liddell is the only other mixed martial artist to receive the frontpage treatment on ESPN The Magazine.

Slice will headline EliteXC's debut on national television on May 31 when "Primetime" hits CBS from the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey. Slice's opponent is PRIDE veteran James Thompson.

Slice was photographed late last month at Bas Rutten's Elite MMA gym in Thousand Oaks, California. The cover story, written by Dan Le Batard, is titled "Not Quite What You Were Thinking" and is available here.
