FiveOuncesofPain.com has recently learned from sources extremely close to the situation that Kimbo Slice’s next fight is expected to take place at UFC 113 against fellow TUF 10 heavyweight, Matt Mitrione.
While sources close to Mitrione have said he has yet to be approached about the fight, the heavy handed duo are considered highly likely to face off on May 1 from the Bell Centre in Montreal, Canada.
Kimbo will be looking to improve upon his December decision victory over Houston Alexander, while Mitrione is hoping to make it two in a row in the Octagon himself with a TUF 10 Finale knockout over Marcus “Big Baby” Jones.
Other match-ups rumored for UFC 113 include a light heavyweight championship rematch between Lyoto Machida and Mauricio “Shogun” Rua, along with the highly anticipated grudge match between Quinton “Rampage” Jackson and Rashad Evans, although neither bout has been made official by the promotion as of this writing.
