According to Bob Carson on the MMA radio show Carson’s Corner, famed street fighter Kimbo Slice will take on PRIDE veteran James Thompson in the main event, at the debut EliteXC show “Saturday Night Fights” on CBS, May 31 from the Prudential Center in Newark, NJ.

James “The Colossus” Thompson (14-8-0) is coming off two strait losses, the latest at EliteXC: Street Certified by first round knockout from Brett Rogers.

Thompson has not submitted someone in over five years, which should make a good opponent for the inexperienced Kimbo Slice.
