michiganblkman said:After that performance, there isnt a top tier fighter that is even remotely concerned about Kimbo Slice.
One fighter, during the post fight conference, accused Kimbo of tapping during the fight. It sort of looked like Kimbo did tap when I relooked at the fight on youtube.
GiovaniMarcon said:Well, it's no surprise the Kimbo Slice will become a household name where as the literally dozens and dozens of superior white (and, it must be said, also non-white) MMA fighters who would eat him for breakfast will continue to be only marginally recognized by dedicated fans of the sport.
PhillyBirds said:Jim Rome (as unbearable as he is) called out Slice on his program this afternoon. He stated that Kimbo would be stomped by any half-decent MMA fighter and that the refereeing and scoring of the match was dubious, if not outright unfair.
I've always seen Rome as a Caste perpetuator, so it would appear that Slice really is just an average-to-bad fighter.
The interview smacked of wrestling and the promotion of a fighter. Fine Slice is raw and inexperienced then bury him somewhere on your card. If he is going to be the flagship for your promotion then you can't spoon feed him patsy's and expect to have any credibility with real fans of the sport.....White Shogun said:
