Some choice quotes from recent interviews promoting The Ultimate Fighter 10: Heavyweights, which premieres September 16th…
Kimbo Slice on piss-soaked fruit trays: "(If someone pulls a prank on him similar to stunts from past shows) there’s gonna be gun play, but fortunately for them I couldn’t bring my pistol. That’s a whole another level. Silver bracelets (handcuffs) if you feel me."
Kimbo Slice on the possibility of being ejected from the house for fighting: "I’m a fighter, dude. I’m not gonna have a motherfucker disrespect me, in no case whatsoever…I’mma be me and I’m gonna stand my ground to the fullest…I wouldn’t want to get thrown out that way. [But] if that becomes my only fight then god damn we gonna fight."
Kimbo Slice on staying humble: “I shop at Winn-Dixie and K-Mart just like everyone else. I never considered myself or thought of myself as a star or some big name. I’m from the streets. I still consider myself the same guy. I’m just a little squirrel in this big world, trying to get a nut.”
Dana White on the possibility of bonus episodes of TUF 10 being released online: "This is some of the best television ever…(Show producer) Andrea (Richter) said, ‘Dana, I don’t know what to do. We could have a 10-set DVD pack on this show. There’s no way we could possibly tell all the storylines and all the things that happened during this season of ‘The Ultimate Fighter.’ It’s some good [expletive]. It’ll be interesting to see which way they go with it."
Dana White on future country-vs.-country showdowns: "Once we get Mexico rolling – it’s going to take some time – I’d like to do something like we did ‘The Ultimate Fighter: U.S. vs. U.K.’ (with) U.S. vs. Mexico, U.K. vs. Mexico, Canada vs. Mexico, whatever."
