Kimbo Slice wants Seth Petruzelli or Tito Ortiz for his first Bellator fight

Kimbo Slice hasn't competed in MMA in over five years, but he's ready to get back in there for Bellator.

Kimbo Slice is back. The street fighter turned MMA fighter turned boxer is making a return to the MMA in Bellator at the age of 40 (soon to be 41), and will compete in four-ounce gloves for the first time in almost five years at some point in 2015. Slice was a guest on The MMA Hour with Ariel Helwani today, and spoke with his typical candor about who he'd like to make his debut against (via MMA Fighting):

"I don't even know who's there right now (in Bellator) as heavyweights. But s**t, anybody. Just feed me. I'm ready to be fed."

Sure, okay. When asked specifically about a rematch with Seth Petruzelli, who famously flattened him in EliteXC and spent the last portion of his career with Bellator before recently retiring, Slice (4-2) said he'd be interested in that:

"I'm sure they would. I mean, they should. I mean, I would love to," Slice said of the idea. "I owe that dude one. The nature of it, I could complain all day long on this and that, but s**t, it just went down the way it went down, but goddamn I owe him one."

Oh, and there's another guy he wouldn't mind facing off with - one Huntington Beach Bad Boy:

"S**t, you know they could put Tito (Ortiz) on that plane, too," he said. "For sure. I got a bone to pick with that dude, man.

"Ain't no problem with him yet, but you know, from back in the Strikeforce days, I was handling s**t about him calling me out and talking s**t about me, so yeah, we could definitely put that in the making. He's gotta have a problem with my hand game."

I'm not gonna lie, folks - I'd be down for Tito Ortiz vs. Kimbo Slice any day of the week. For his part, Petruzelli has already responded via Twitter and is unsurprisingly interested in the fight:

I'm sure we'll hear from Tito relatively soon as well.
