Kimbo Slice: 'I don't predict fights but I'm not getting knocked out, I'll tell you that'


Props: MMA Fighting


"The preparation for every fight is the same, it's intense. I peak to the highest level of my performance a week before the fight. I'm ready for it. I hope [Mitrione's] biggest strength would be his ground game because if he wants to stand and bang, that's my world. If I see a submission and he slip -- I'll grip. I don't predict the fights but I'm not getting knocked out, I'll tell you that."

Former Elite XC headliner, YouTube brawler and now Ultimate Fighter contestant Kimbo Slice, looks to notch consecutive wins under the Zuffa banner when he tangles with fellow TUF 10 cast mate Matt Mitrione at UFC 113 on May 8 from the Bell Centre in Montreal. Kimbo was stopped by Roy Nelson on the Spike TV reality show but kept himself employed with a unanimous decision win over Houston Alexander at the Dec. 5 Finale. Can he survive the heavy hands of the former Minnesota Viking? Or will "Meathead" find out just how far Slice has improved his ground game? What's your take Maniacs?
