Kimbo Slice Has a Bromance Brewing With UFC

The legend of Kimbo lives on.

So Kimbo Slice got his tail handed to him again in front of a national TV audience on Wednesday and once again, it appears that his legend has grown larger.

Slice got TKO'd by some fat guy on the UFC's The Ultimate Fighter reality TV show, but a funny thing happened after the fight was stopped.

We found out UFC president Dana White has a crush on the big fella from Miami-Dade County.

Amazing how attracting 7 or 8 million viewers to your product can change one's opinion. White has said publicly that Slice would get a UFC contract whether he won or loss the competition. And he lost.

Maybe the two love birds will be on next season's Dancing with the Stars as a tango team. Or maybe they could start their own YouTube-based show called, "A Slice of White." We like that idea.

White, who bad-mouthed the backyard brawler for much of his mixed-martial arts career as a fraud and affront to the sport, praised Slice for being a tough guy and putting up a good fight against a seasoned opponent. By putting up a good fight, White must have meant lying on the ground while a guy nicknamed "Big Country" peppered him with pillow punches.

But the legend of Kimbo lives on, kind of like Brett Favre, only the gunslinger actually has talent.

That doesn't mean you should take the chance of calling Slice out of his name or tease him by singing, "Kimbo and Dana sittin' in a tree..."

He'd still probably knock you out.
