Dana White Invites Kevin "Kimbo Slice" Ferguson to Join "The Ultimate Fighter"

It is no secret that Dana White doesn't think much of Kimbo Slice. He doesn't think that he is a real fighter or athlete for that matter. Most of the MMA world (or at least the purists), including myself, agrees with him. Dana has now gone as far as inviting Kimbo to a new season of "The Ultimate Fighter". He had the following to say to MMA.Fanhouse.com:

What has the guy done to deserve to be in the UFC? Nothing. I don’t consider him a real athlete or anything. He won’t win The Ultimate Fighter (TUF). The offer is out there if he wants to take it and he won’t win it. I might [put a heavyweight show together just for him].”

Kimbo won't be making nearly as much money as he was making in EliteXC if he decides to accept Dana's offer, but if it is legitimacy he is looking for, this is his big shot. The UFC could actually rake in some gigantic ratings every Wednesday night by having Kimbo on the show.

It is pretty unlikely that Kimbo would accept Dana's offer. He tasted the high life in EXC with his $500,000 pay days and hand picked tomato can opponents. Only time will tell though.
