Re: Kimbo slice makes network debut

Dana White has cut Kimbo from the UFC following the loss.

Kimbo will find work. He's this generation's Tank Abbott. He is entertaining to watch, and really is a nice guy, despite his intimidating appearance. His fights will end with either him knocking somebody out or him getting knocked out. He is old at 36 but he has really just begun as a Mixed Martial Artist. He has shown more each fight. Last night I thought he showed patience, something he wouldn't have done before.

There are plenty of start up and smaller promotions who would love to sign Kimbo to short term (1 or more fights) deals to put butts in the seats. He won't be making UFC money, but money is money.

He has, but you have to wonder how he'll progress given his age. Also, there's a ton of quit in Kimbo, he pretty much just gives up when guys are outclassing him, you can see it whenever he's on his back.

Re: Kimbo slice makes network debut

I think Kimbo doesnt have belief in his ground game..he showed tons of heart against Roy Nelson, and almost got out from underneath, but ultimatley just fatigued.

I don't train in MMA, i just do strictly boxing, but i imagine it is hard work to get out when somebody has you on the ground...besides Mitrione out weighed him by almost 30 pounds...and he gave him just a down home country whoopin.

I think Kimbo needs to be brought along slowly, instead of fighting these seasoned guys. I really think he deserves at least a few more fights.

Think about it. he beat Alexander, and stuffed his take down attempts...i thought Kimbo had really came along...that work ethic is still there. Somebody will take a chance on him.

That should be a slobberknocker. No love loss between those 2. I'm more of a fan of Evans, but if Rampage is focused, he's a mean SOB. Wonder if taking time off to film The A-Team will hurt him. Figure the winner to get a shot at Rua down the line.

Re: Kimbo slice makes network debut

Yeah, I'm hosting a bunch of my friends for Rampage v. Evans on Saturday. I like both of them, but I lean more towards Rampage. I have a feeling he might announce his return with authority and knock Rashad out...at least that's what I'm hoping happens

Jackson by KO early. Too much hate in that man. Rampage all the way.
