September 27, 2011 9:30 am by George Matthews

A battle of famed internet street brawlers is being planned for early next year, as Kimbo Slice and Dada 5000 have reportedly agreed to square off under MMA rules. The news and details come via

“Florida-based street fighter DADA 5000 went on the Rodolfo Roman show yesterday to announce that he would be fighting for the WFO heavyweight championship of the world. Additionally, on January 12 he will be fighting Kimbo Slice in an MMA match on pay-per-view at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, or possibly at Universal Studios in Florida (venue is still to be locked down). DADA learned towards Universal Studios since he said “they would give a bigger purse.” Why is this match so big? For the Florida fighting community, both fighters are hometown heroes who rose up from obscurity to top-dollar fighting careers. Bragging rights will be on the line, but more importantly, so will a lot of money.

Kimbo Slice last competed in MMA during May of 2010, where he was stopped by Matt Mitrione via TKO in the second round. Since then, Slice has been inactive in MMA, although he recently made his boxing debut this past August, where he scored a 10 second knockout over James Wade.

Dhafir “Dada 5000” Harris has only two professional mixed martial arts fights on his resume, with both being first round stoppages. Neither fighter is very experienced in the world of MMA, with a combined total of eight fights between to two of them.  Assuming the fight happens, who will walk away with the victory in this battle of internet street fighting legends?
