Can Kimbo Slice Still Make The Cut?
Kimbo Slice is a street fighter who made it into the world of Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) via YouTube stardom in late 2007. During his time there, Slice accumulated three victories – victories that were questionable to most. Unfortunately he lost his fourth bout in one of the worst ways possible, by way of TKO 14 seconds into the first round to a last minute replacement for his original opponent. Needless to say it was a setback for him.
Slice has been shown in another light in the MMA courtesy of the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) show, The Ultimate Fighter (TUF). Unfortunately in last Wednesday’s fight, the light got eclipsed by Roy “Big Country” Nelson‘s belly. Watch the fight below and you’ll see what I mean. Oh, and Rampage Jackson is a fool.
My advice to you is scan through it, but stay for Rampage’s comments!
Slice is most often misjudged because of his gruff exterior and the fact his claim to fame was from unsanctioned street fights instead of a fighting camp. While schools, dojos and training camps are good for learning, refining, bragging rights and other reasons, real life and the streets still have their advantages.
Let’s be real – Slice doesn’t fit the typical MMA fighter image. Some say he’s all hype and no execution.
He has educated fists, along with schooling his opponents on how they work. In past fights Slice’s shown decent offensive and defensive fighting skills in the cage, not to mention he’s a very humble person, hard worker and picks things up quickly.
According to the promos for this Wednesday’s episode of TUF, one of the fighters on Team Rampage might be out so Slice might be in again. Do you think Kimbo will be able to win this match, let alone be a finalist for this season’s TUF?
