LAS VEGAS (AP) - Kimbo Slice will make his official Ultimate Fighting Championship debut on Dec. 5 in Las Vegas.
Slice is the former strip-club bouncer who became an Internet sensation for his widely viewed street fights. He found wider stardom on CBS last year while fighting for the defunct EliteXC promotion.
Earlier this year, he signed with UFC and agreed to be a cast member on its popular television show, "The Ultimate Fighter." He lost a bout to Roy Nelson in the third episode of the current season, which concludes with the show's final fight card Dec. 5 from the Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas.
UFC hasn't announced Slice's opponent for his debut.
The 10th season of "The Ultimate Fighter" is the highest-rated in the show's history.
