With the news recently that kimbo has signed with ATT and will begin training as soon as tomorrow, naturally i have been thinking over possible match ups. It has also been said that he will be fighting his debut in december which could either be at the TUF10 PPV or another PPV to end out the year with some very good ratings.
Everyone knows that Kimbo isn't well rounded in all areas of MMA, but it is a very good argument that his stand up would rank and possibly top the top 5 in the sport. I don't think that Dana White will throw him to the wolves and put him against someone like Big Nog or say Frank Mir, because if it is true and in fact Kimbo Slice is the newest member of the UFC, i would assume that Dana would put him against a fighter who will stand a chance going toe to toe.
I think that a good match up for Kimbo slice's first showing for the UFC would be against an up and comer who is "Hungry" and has proven he can throw a punch. I am talking about the current record holder of the fastest UFC knockout in history, Todd Duffee. He is currently set to fight at ufc 107 against Paul Buentello so obviously Kimbo vs. Duffee could not actually take place but imagine the fight that could turn out too be.
Maybe Kimbo will be fighting at the finaly, which would leave a great second match up for Kimbo. Win or lose on his debut he WILL fight again. And not to mention if Todd Duffee puts Buentello away like he did his past opponents then a shot against one of the biggest names in the fighting world would give him the fight that could shoot him into the bigger names. The bennifit of a fight between those too would be huge! And if that happens i would put money on it being fight of the night.
