During the post-UFC 90 press conference UFC President Dana White offered Kimbo Slice a spot on an upcoming season of The Ultimate Fighter reality series, but cast doubt that Slice, who recently suffered the first loss of his career to TUF veteran Seth Petruzelli, would emerge victorious from the heavyweight tournament.
“He can be on The Ultimate Fighter. What’s he done other than get 10 million hits on YouTube? What’s he done to deserve to be in the UFC? Nothing,” said White. “I don’t consider him a real athlete. He won’t win The Ultimate Fighter. The offer’s out there if he wants to take it, (but) he won’t win it.”
Though White said the UFC could tailor an upcoming season of the series to feature heavyweights to allow for Slice’s participation, the mention was merely White’s latest jab at EliteXC and it’s former star fighter, whose main event loss earlier this month was the final blow that put the promotion out of business.
