Kimbo Announced for TUF 10 Finale

Kimbo Slice will make his official UFC debut on the televised card of The Ultimate Fighter 10 Finale on Dec. 5 at The Pearl at the Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas, Spike TV announced Monday.

An opponent has not been announced, as there are still two hours of programming left and Slice is still being teased as an injury replacement, but numerous reports have stated that the brawler will meet fellow heavy hitter Houston Alexander at the finale in a catch-weight bout of 215 pounds.

Slice was eliminated from the tournament, losing to show favorite Roy Nelson by second-round TKO on the third episode of the reality television series competition. After the taping of the show, Slice began training in October with the American Top Team in Coconut Creek, Fla. to begin his camp for his TUF 10 Finale fight.

The field of remaining contestants vying for the six-figure UFC contract, Nelson, Matt Mitrione, Marcus Jones, Darrill Schoonover, James McSweeney and Brendan Schaub, will be narrowed down to two finalists on this Wednesday's two-hour episode on Spike TV at 9 PM ET.
