Kimbo Slice has been diced out of the UFC.
Ultimate Fighting Championship President Dana White confirmed to the Los Angeles Times that the popular MMA fighter was cut by the organization. The news comes a day after Slice lost in a second-round TKO to former NFL lineman Matt Mitrione at UFC 113.
The move wasn’t a surprise after remarks from White following the bout on Saturday night.
“That’s probably Kimbo’s last fight in the UFC,” White said. “I got nothing but respect for him.”
Slice, whose real name is Kevin Ferguson, first gained attention when clips of him street fighting hit the Internet. He was signed by EliteXC in 2007 and fought for the organization until it declared bankrupcy in 2008.
He also made an appearance on UFC’s “The Ultimate Fighter: Heavyweight” reality show.
Slice won in his debut with the UFC at The Ultimate Fighter: Heavyweights Finale in a 215 lb. catchweight battle against Houston Alexander. His second UFC fight was Saturday’s loss to Mitrione. It was his first — and only — heavyweight fight in the UFC.
Following a post-fight cheap shot that tagged opponent Josh Koscheck, welterweight Paul Daley will never fight in the Ultimate Fighting Championship again.
That’s the word from UFC president Dana White, who condemned the veteran fighter’s actions following the pay-per-view fight.
In Saturday’s UFC 113 co-main event at Montreal’s Bell Centre, Daley threw a post-fight punch after losing a unanimous decision to Koscheck.
The loss cost Daley a coaching spot on “The Ultimate Fighter 12″ and a title shot with champion Georges St-Pierre.
The late blow, however, cost him any shot at a future in the UFC.
“He’s done,” White said after the event. “I don’t give a [expletive] if he’s the best 170-pounder in the world. He’ll never come back here again.
“There’s no excuse for that. These guys are professional athletes. You don’t ever hit a guy blatantly after the bell like that, whether you’re frustrated or not. It was probably one of the dumbest things I’ve ever seen because he is a talented guy, and he is one of the best 170-pounders in the world.”
Well, if any of you tried to visit my website within the last 24 hours or so, you may have noticed that it was temporarily down. This is because it was hacked. A virus was loaded into my server somehow and corrupted my admin area.
Without going into too much boring detail, I will explain to you that I run a WordPress Blog hosted on GoDaddy, which was one of the primary targets of these attackers. I will say that I was ultra disappointed in GoDaddy, for a complete lack of support, passing the buck to WordPress and allowing this attack to happen in the first place. If my site is hosted on their servers, and their servers are attacked, you would think they would take a certain amount of responsibility for it.
What made matters worse, is that I didn’t have a recent backup (Important Note: If you have a website or blog back it up to your local computer regularly), so basically the only way I could fix it was to sift through hundreds of lines of code in order to find the problem and remove it. Hence, that’s why the site was down for 24 hours or so.
I apologize for anyone who tried to visit and came up empty. Some recent posts you may have missed include the last couple UFC 113 videos and some information on the Tapout MMA Fantasy Camp. Check those posts out. I also have some information coming about a few recent events soon.
Oh yeah, I would like to thank the guys at http://sucuri.net/ for providing the malware removal tool. Thanks guys.
