It's not Jimmy Durante's nose but Kimbo Slice's beard is getting pretty big for its britches. The legendary Durante actually took out an insurance policy on his legendary schnoz; Kimbo Slice needs to do the same for the beard. He loves that beard so much that his management actually tried to get a protection clause put in his Ultimate Fighter 10 contract according to UFC president Dana White:

"His manager kept saying if anybody messes with his beard while he's sleeping, there's gonna be some big problems," White told Mike Chiappetta from Spike TV. "That was like a big deal in the whole contract negotiation."

White was at a loss for words for Kimbo's manager Icey Mike (2:10 mark):

"I can't guarantee nobody's gonna try to shave his beard off.  How the hell can I guarantee that?"

Listen below as White talks about getting Kimbo on TUF 10:

Icey Mike should at least have the beard trademarked so he can sue copycats like Mike Wilbon and Seth Petruzelli.
