EliteXC heavyweight sensation and internet street fighting legend Kevin “Kimbo Slice” Ferguson is scheduled to appear as a guest tonight on “Jimmy Kimmel Live“

The show, which also has Dr. Phil slated to appear as well as musical guests Birdman and Lil’ Wayne, will air tonight starting at 12:05 PM ET on ABC.

Our friends at MMA Junkie first reported Slice’s appearance earlier today and EliteXC parent company Pro Elite confirmed the news later via their official website.

Slice will be on hand to promote his upcoming fight against David “Tank Abbott” at EliteXC’s “Street Certified” event on February 16th at the University of Miami’s United Bank Arena in Miami, Florida. Ironically enough, Abbott was a guest of the show just two weeks ago.

After submitting former boxing heavyweight champion Ray Mercer in an exhibition bout in June of last year, Slice fought and defeated fellow heavyweight Bo Cantrell at EliteXC’ s “Renegade” event this past November. Slice and Abbott were originally set to fight at a Cage Fury Fighting Championship event in October but the event was scrapped due to the lack of a pay-per-view agreement.
