Kimbo Slice to Wrestle in IGF 8-man Tournament

Kimbo Slice: Man of the people (Dave Mandel for Sherdog)

Kevin Ferguson, better known as the internet sensation Kimbo Slice, will try his hand at professional wrestling. According to Zach Arnold at FightOpinion, Kimbo will be making a pit stop on his path into the world of boxing, having agreed to face Shinichi "Wakakirin" Suzukawa in the Inoki Genome Federation title tournament. Professional wrestling has always been connected to mixed martial arts, and vice versa, Strikeforce heavyweight grand prix participant Josh Barnett will also be a part of the IGF tournament, and is no stranger to wrestling in Japan.

Kimbo is likely just picking up a check and moving along, but I'm curious to see if he looks in to other one off opportunities in the wrestling world. Like, a Wrestlemania that could use some star power.
