Kimbo vs Tank Abbott Confirmed for Feb 16 Elite XC Show

A fight between Internet-brawler-turned-MMA-fighter Kevin “Kimbo Slice” Ferguson (1-0) and early UFC fighter David “Tank” Abbott (9-13) will take place after all.

The fight, which was originally booked for October but canceled when event organizers shut down the show, has been picked up by Pro Elite, Inc., which will feature the heavyweight bout as part of its Feb. 16 EliteXC show.

The news comes from blogger Sam Caplan.

The fight, which has been booked for the night’s main event, airs live as part of a Showtime broadcast that kicks off at 10 p.m. ET. The show is expected to take place in Miami, Fla. — possibly at the University of Miami Arena.

Only two fights on the card have been confirmed so far.

  • Tank Abbott vs. Kimbo Slive
  • Kyle Noke vs. Scott Smith
  • Gina Carano vs. TBA
  • Antonio Silva vs. TBA
  • James Thompson vs. TBA
