EliteXC announced the signing of Kimbo Slice to a long-term, exclusive deal earlier today.
The announcement was made on the official website of their parent company, Pro Elite.
Slice is scheduled to make his EliteXC debut at the promotion’s next event on November 10th in Corpus Christi, Texas. An opponent for Slice has not yet been decided.
Sam Caplan interviewed EliteXC President Gary Shaw earlier today and asked him a few questions about the deal. When asked if Slice’s opponent could possibly be Tank Abott, Shaw didn’t rule out the possibility:
Sam Caplan: Is there a chance that Tank Abbott, who was scheduled to have faced Kimbo Slice this weekend for Cage Fury Fighting Championships this week before the event was canceled, could be the opponent?
Gary Shaw: (There’s) always a chance that anyone fight with EliteXC and on Showtime, yes.
