During a Monday conference call with media, UFC heavyweight Kimbo Slice, a contestant on The Ultimate Fighter 10 whose opening round fight against Roy Nelson, billed as “the biggest in Ultimate Fighter history”, airs on Wednesday, talked about the fight and commented on a potential rematch with Seth Petruzelli, who handed him his only career MMA loss last October.
“I was impressed with my performance,” Slice said of his fight with Nelson, adding that he’s now training with American Top Team in preparation for a December bout at The Ultimate Fighter 10 Finale, though whether he’ll be competing in the heavyweight tournament finals remains to be seen.
“No one ever approached me with no rematch with Seth, and I never turned that shit down. That right there is B.S. It didn’t happen,” Slice responded when asked about Petruzelli’s claims that he declined a rematch. “If Seth signed with the UFC, and if Dana and them want to match it up, damn right I’ll run it again with him. We don’t even need to do it in a ring. We can do it bare-knuckle style because I don’t like liars. I’ve never turned down a rematch with anybody. Anyone I fought, I’ll fight them again.”
