Kimbo Slice will reportedly compete in the main event when Bellator MMA travels to Houston for its next tent-pole event on Feb. 19.
The Houston Chronicle revealed the booking on Thursday, citing sources close to the bout. Bellator officials were unable to confirm the news to Sherdog.com. Slice reportedly does not yet have an opponent for the event, which will take place at the Toyota Center.
Slice made his promotional debut in the headliner of Bellator 138 “Unfinished Business,” as he stopped Ken Shamrock via first-round technical knockout at the Scottrade Center in St. Louis on June 19. The 41-year-old Slice is 5-2 as a professional, including triumphs over Houston Alexander, James Thompson and David "Tank" Abbott.
The Miami native is expected to appear at the promotion’s Fan Fest next week at Dave & Buster’s in Maryland Heights, Mo., ahead of Bellator 145.
