Tweet Pin It UFC Betting Odds: UFC 103 Franklin Vs. Belfort Dana White Says He Is Mad At Rampage Jackson 18 Comments big abzy September 16, 2009 never seen a guy so worried about what he asks in an inteview! hahahaha Log in to Reply bigmikedagr8 September 16, 2009 You know what, Am chearing for this guy to win, He never asked to be used as a marketing tool by those Jerk Offs. I remember when he was the body guard for the “In the VIP” guys. All this guy ever those is try to get the best life possible for his kids. He’s taking a BIG risk being on the show and that gets a shit load of respect from me. Good Luck Slice Log in to Reply bigmikedagr8 September 16, 2009 “all this guy ever does*” Log in to Reply Darkmetal September 16, 2009 I give Kimbo a hell of a lot of credit for coming on TUF. The reason so many people were against him, including myself, is that he was being sold as the greatest heavyweight fighter ever by EliteXC. We actually disliked the EliteXC management more than Kimbo Slice. However, I don’t expect that Kimbo will win. He has a punchers chance in any fight, sure. But in the UFC that doesn’t get you far. Even guys like Chuck Liddell are looking pretty shabby as guys like Rashad Evans and Lyoto Machida entered the scene. Kimbo wins his first fight to get into the house, that is obvious from interviews. But I think he loses his second. The first time it goes to the ground, Kimbo loses. Sorry Kimbo. Log in to Reply Hollywood Henderson September 16, 2009 Darkmetal, I don’t think the HWs had to fight to get in the house. I saw a short clip of the first few minutes of the premiere episode and Dana announced Kimbo as the 16th fighter. When Kimbo walked in, Rampage said that he wants Kimbo on his team and Rashad didn’t want him. Everyone knows that Kimbo’s ground game is suspect cuz he has very little experience in BJJ, wrestling, etc. but I don’t think Dana is bringing Kimbo into the UFC just to have him destroyed. I hope that they match him up with a striker for his first fight because I’d love to see another Kimbo slugfest. Log in to Reply jeremyemilio September 16, 2009 I completely understand how annoying Kimbo’s YouTube fans were when he burst onto the scene, and how anyone who knew anything about MMA would be annoyed by the way he was promoted. But I find it difficult to comprehend how anyone could actually dislike this guy. He seems like a genuine, respectful guy when he’s not fighting and, as one dimensional as he is, he’s pretty fun to watch when he is fighting. I dunno, I’ve never been a follower or a big booster (actually, I was sure that Mercer was going to clean his clock), but I really think I’ll be rooting for Kimbo this season. I’m betting there’s a very large part of Dana White that’s rooting for him, too. If he shows he can hold his own in the cage against true competition, this guy is a gold mine. Log in to Reply Lil J September 16, 2009 I only have to say this, I think Kimbo will do well in the UFC. The thing that he has is humility. Log in to Reply shocktime September 16, 2009 Dana wants Kimbo to do good on the show…..Shit Kimbo is more marketable than Lesnar that means big bucks!!!! Log in to Reply F3dor September 16, 2009 Seth has world class striking is why he got pwned Log in to Reply MOST7WANTED September 16, 2009 bigmikedagr8: All this guy ever those is try to get the best life possible for his kids thats wat u believe? posting up those streetfights in youtube is for he’s kids? thats for his fame. Hollywood Henderson: I hope that they match him up with a striker for his first fight because Iâ€™d love to see another Kimbo slugfest. huh! so want another elitexc scripted fight for kimbo. man thats not gonna happen this is UFC. this is for real. NOT LIKE ELITEXC’S FAKE FIGHTS FOR KIMBO Kimbo has a charm todeceive u guys what he really was. even though at first we know he’s fake and now he’s acting like an angel bcoz of d humialating lose to petruzelli. and now u guys are buying it. cmon!!! and i hate to say this………. guys whater, however u’ll pray for this guy to win its not gonna happen….. coz the REALITY IS HE DOESNT HAVE SKILLS, GROUND GAME AND CARDIO (period) Log in to Reply fedor September 16, 2009 Kimbo is taking good oportunities that everyone would take if they could. In addition, he is very respectful and polite, a thing a lot of fighters should learn Log in to Reply i no name September 16, 2009 by doing what he is doing, kimbo is already winning over lots of critics and as some here has posted, have had a change of point of view on kimbo. ive followed kimbo from the youtube days and have been pulling for him thru his mma career and would like to see him win this thing. he might not be the favorite,thats obvious, but thats why Kimbo has so many fans. he came from being almost homeless to be where he’s at. and all these haters, critics, mma fighters obviously wont give him absolutely no respect for just that itself? why? theyre all jealous and hating on him because he got famous and got money and endorsements? obviously these clowns will never understand what its like to ‘choose from the lesser of two evils’ to feed your family. and they never will. fools.. maybe the haters should wonder why these promoters and endorsements chose kimbo in the first place. you dont think its because they saw what his fans saw? his struggles, an underdog story in the making.kimbo is just one of many examples of people out there struggling and trying to make a better life for he and his family.in a way he represents these people and his fans appreciate him. mostwanted- not everyone gets famous and rich off of youtube. so to say he did it to get famous is ignorant. not like he was spamming everyone to watch his fights. and how would you know if it wasnt someone elses idea to put it on the ‘tube? the world got kimbo slice by chance Log in to Reply FIla FIl September 16, 2009 It doesn’t matter how he does on TUF, he has won over a lot of people with his courage and heart. Its on tonite baby!! Log in to Reply i no name September 16, 2009 kimbo slice the peoples champ Log in to Reply You A WeTodd September 17, 2009 Kimbo is a good stand up fighter but it is unfortunate for him that TUF is loaded with top notch wrestlers. And to make it worse he is a pretty small dude compared to the other competitors…so I think Kimbo has a fighters chance to do ok, but to be realistic he will only go 1 or 2 fights deep. Log in to Reply busyallen September 17, 2009 “…you’re a scary dude!” HAHAHA Log in to Reply elbetoflaco September 17, 2009 I would love to see Kimbo VS Lesnar in a non-title fight….It would be awesome..!!!
