That’s right, dawg. Kimbo’s first fight in the UFC is official for December 5th at the finale of this season’s The Ultimate Fighter, live on Spike at 9pm ET/PT.
Spike and the UFC sent an announcement confirming rumors that Kimbo would fight at the finale. It is not yet certain whether he’ll be fighting for the six-figure contract, or if he’s going to be there as one of the recalls from the show.
The Ultimate Fighter takes a break from its regular schedule Thanksgiving week and will return the following week with a two-hour special on December 2 at 9pm. During this episode, Kimbo’s opponent will be announced – depending on what happens in competition. Matt Mitrione is still struggling with injuries and if he can’t “get the sand out of his vagina,” as Kimbo says, he seems to be first in line to step in and fill the empty spot.
