Kimbo Slice is coming off a win over Ken Shamrock at Bellator 138 and is looking for his next challenge. However, for those who may have wanted to see him fight in 2015, it is not happening. You’re going to have to wait to see him fight in 2016.
According to Jeremy Botter of the Houston Chronicle, Slice will return to the Bellator cage on February 19th, which takes place in the Toyota Center in Houston, TX.
Slice (5-2), is currently on a one-fight winning streak.
According to the article, Kimbo will be competing in the main event of the show.
During his appearance on the MMA Hour back on September 28th, 2015, Bellator MMA President Scott Coker teased that Slice might get the winner of a Nov. 6 fight between Bobby Lashley vs. James Thompson.
“We might take a look at maybe the winner of that fight and Kimbo,” Coker said.
“I’m not promising, I’m just saying.”
If you recall, Slice defeated Thompson via third-round TKO in 2008, which drew 6.51 million viewers on CBS. When Slice fought Shamrock at Bellator 138, that show did the highest viewership in Bellator’s history with 2.9 viewers.
As of this writing, his opponent for this event has yet to be announced.
