Kimbo Slice’s return to the octagon at UFC 113 against fellow TUF 10 competitor Matt Mitrione has finally been made official.

Word of the bout has been around for some time, but when it was not officially confirmed rumors began to spread that the UFC may have had other plans for Kimbo.

Reports suggested that he may have been moving to an as yet unannounced Fight Night card to counter-program Strikeforce’s second outing on CBS on April 17th, but the UFC have now laid that rumor to rest by confirming he will fight Mitrione on May 8th.

With this bout scheduled the UFC has now finalized the main card for the UFC 113 event which will be headlined by the light-heavyweight title rematch between Lyoto Machida and Mauricio Rua.
