Hold on to your hats, the legendary street-fighting legend and Youtube sensation Kimbo Slice will be appearing as a contestant on THE ULTIMATE FIGHTER SEASON 10 according to a Yahoo Sports exclusive from Kevin Iole published late Monday night.

Combined with the fact Quinton “Rampage” Jackson and “Sugar” Rashad Evans will be the coaches on TUF 10, and the season has the potential to garner the highest ratings the show has ever seen.
