Even though there’s a 50/50 (or 90/10?) chance Kimbo Slice might be a total bust, he’s still going to drive an ungodly amount of viewers to the Ultimate Fighter. Which I suppose is … good for the sport? The first season of TUF literally changed MMA forever. You can pretty much guarantee with Kimbo Slice and a few NFL veterans thrown in for good measure that this will be the biggest season yet. How fucked up would it be if Kimbo Slice ended up being the catalyst for a second even bigger MMA surge?
Still, I can’t help but think that the UFC landed the wrong EliteXC superstar.
