Kelly Slater: UFC Fan

Consider 11-Time ASP World Champion Kelly Slater a fan of the UFC. Pictured here with bantamweight and current champion Dominick Cruz, Kelly recently attended a UFC fight in Anaheim where Cruz beat Urijah Faber in close decision. Slater was joined by celebrities like NFL players Jim Brown, Howie Long, Michael Strahan, actors David Arquette and Mickey Rourke, and musician Travis Barker.

Kelly isn’t the only professional surfer who digs MMA. Kauai’s Dustin Barca has fought a few bouts, Australian Richie Vaculik has fought professionally, and numerous pros practice MMA as part of their training.
