The Ultimate Fighter 10: The Heavyweights contestant, Wes Sims, is auctioning off “authentic” items from his stint on the Spike TV reality series. Bidders on Ebay have the chance to own a piece, or pieces, of the highly popular MMA reality show. Auction winners will also recieve a Wes Sims autographed TUF 10 photo.
Sims, it seems, is not only selling off his own items. Among the six items up for up auction include autographed posters, a t-shirt, a jersey, and a skullcap worn by Kimbo Slice.
“This is an Official skull cap worn on The Ultimate Fighter 10 by Kimbo Slice now in possession of Wes “A-Hole Show” Sims! Was it theft or just a token of friendship? I don’t know but this is your opportunity to own a piece of gear worn by one of the hottest MMA sensations, Kimbo Slice!” is the description Sims lists in the skullcap auction.
Did Sims steal Kimbo’s skullcap or was it a gift? I doubt anyone will ever know the full story behind it. But, where else can you own a piece of Kimbo Slice for less than $4.00? (current bid is $3.25)
It seems the economic crisis has effected just about everyone, including Wes Sims. After all, The Ultimate Fighter is not a paying gig, unless you win. And, as many know, Sims was eliminated in his first fight by Justin Wren via submission (arm triangle choke).
