Ultimate Fighter 10 cast member Kimbo Slice has a new promo out telling everyone to tune into the new Ultimate Fighter Live on FX tonight.

Why is this relevant you ask?

Well, the former YouTube sensation has been scheduled for several weeks to be the presenter for Spike TV’s Ultimate Fighter Fridays starting tonight, in a counter programming effort by the network against the new reality show’s debut on FX.

It appears Kimbo is telling everyone to tune into the new Ultimate Fighter on FX, but obviously isn’t mentioning his own appearance on Spike TV at the same time.

Could Kimbo Slice be counter programming his own show?

Check out the promo below:

  • Lol. This is just bizarre…

    Kimbo just totally flipped off Spike. He probably shot all of his episodes for them in one day and got paid! Why would he care about Spike ratings? It’s not like he’s going to be fighting in Bellator in a year. LOL! Priceless!

  • He called him “Dominique Cruz”!!!!

    That’s funny. I may have to steal that.

    Thanks Kimbo. Get that money.

    That sounds like some slick work by the UFC brass. Probably only took one phone call from Dana to get Kimbo to shoot that.

    any logic in this advert?

    Let’s bring in Kimbo, a TUF reject to promote the next show…. You got a blind man driving the wagon or something?

    This ‘sport’ has become more of an entertainment show, expecting scripts and pre-decided results next.

      The logic is this: spike hired Kimbo to do a segment called ultimate fighter Fridays to use his drawing power to counter the new season of the ultimate fighteron FX. Apparently zuffa hired him as well to film a promo for the new TUF. Kind of a middle finger to spike tv.

    Kimbo of the Jungle has gotten more out of being a non talented pug thumper than any other thing alive. This media creation is one of the biggest jokes and clowns going. Kimbo is more of a circus attraction than anything. Keep your fingers away from the cage Kimbo bites.
