Re: Kimbo slice makes network debut

Re: Kimbo slice makes network debut

Nope, but he's about 12 minutes into his 15...EliteXC has spent too much money on him and marketing him to just throw him by the wayside.

Slice/Shamrock will happen down the road. From there, who knows, but as of right now, there is no way he can hang with the likes of Antonio Silva, Andrei Arlovski, Josh Barnett, Fedor Emelianenko, or even a Tim Sylvia. There's a reason Dana White would never bring Kimbo Slice to UFC and Elite is banking on being able to turn Kimbo into a legitimate threat.

Re: Kimbo slice makes network debut

Read that this morning. The talented fighters will find work, but Kimbo's 15 minutes may have expired. Dana White of the UFC has stated time and time again that he would never give Kimbo the time of day.

Supposedly CBS/Showtime and Affliction Clothing were supposed to collaborate in purchasing ProElite, but negotiations broke down after word of ProElite being under investigation by the Florida State Athletic Commission, from Seth Petruzelli's comments about his fight with Kimbo.

It wouldn't even be a contest, Lesnar would eat Kimbo alive.

Re: Kimbo slice makes network debut

Lesnar doesn't have much of a martial arts back ground, but is a legit wrestler. i agree with you guys, he would destroy kimbo

Re: Kimbo slice makes network debut

Destroy isn't the word. Lesnar actually has talent. If he can continue to stay motivated and not discouraged with tough losses he is going to be a force in the heavyweight division. The biggest question for him is whether he can take a punch. A Kimbo fight for him would be worthless at this point in his career. He needs to step up competition a little. Eventually I'd like to see him fight Tim Sylvia but not until he gets a little more polished and some experience udner his belt.

Re: Kimbo slice makes network debut

At this point, Lesnar would destroy Tim Silvia. Silvia for some reason isn't the fighter he used to be. He's gone soft. I'd like to see him come back and fight like he did when he was the UFC Heavyweight Champ, I just don't see it happening.

Lesnar fights Couture for the UFC Heavyweight belt in November at UFC 91. If Lesnar can't take care of Couture in the 1st round, I don't see him winning this fight. Lesnar had so many opportunities to put Heath Herring away, but didn't. A guy like Couture will take advantage of that.

As far as Kimbo goes, Dana White has offered him a spot on The Ultimate Fighter if he is interested...

Former NFL lineman TKOs Kimbo Slice

Matt Mitrione, a former member of the New York Giants and Minnesota Vikings, is now a mixed martial arts fighter. On Saturday night, Mitrione scored a technical knockout of Kimbo Slice, a YouTube sensation who is only 4-2 as a pro fighter.

Yea, I even have to admit, he is overrated, street fighting doesn't equate to MMA fighting!!!! He needs to host a bogus street fighting show.... but that's about all he will ever be

Put Bimbo back on the streets, where he belongs. He's a joke and out of his league.
