Spike Enlists Kimbo Slice To Counter Program TUF With “The Ultimate Fighter Fridays”


SpikeTV has called on “Street Certified” Kimbo Slice in new Friday night TUF highlight show,

Kimbo Slice, the wildly popular cast member from Season 10 of “The Ultimate Fighter” will serve as host for the premiere installment of Spike TV’s “The Ultimate Fighter Fridays” programming block debuting on Friday, March 9 (9:00 PM – Midnight ET/PT). Kimbo will discuss never-before-revealed details of his experiences on the show and provide insight into what went on when the cameras weren’t rolling during the filming of the “The Ultimate Fighter: Heavyweights.” Season 10 was the highest-rated of all the 14 seasons on Spike, delivering an average of 3.4 million viewers per week.

Counter programing at its finest, the Kimbo show debuts the same night of the Ultimate Fighter LIVE on FX.

The Kimbo show only shows SpikeTV’s desperation to hold onto UFC/TUF fans after the UFC’s exodus to FOX.
