Kimbo Slice's first UFC fight will take place on Dec. 5

Popular MMA star Kimbo Slice will fight for the first time in UFC live on Spike TV on Dec. 5 at 9 p.m. Slice will appear in a bout on “The Ultimate Fighter: Heavyweights” finale fight card from Las Vegas.

Slice’s opponent will be announced later, depending on what transpires on the special two-hour “Ultimate Fighter” episode Dec. 2.  Despite suffering a loss to Roy Nelson in the third episode of this season's "Ultimate Fighter," Slice has the opportunity to return to fight on the show if a castmate is injured.
