    Hell yeah! Hell no!
    Butterbean is a pro fighter already. He may not look like Randy Couture, but he had a legit chance to defeat Kimbo Slice in a MMA fight or a boxing match.

    From wikipedia:
    Eric Scott "Butterbean" Esch (born August 3, 1968 in Bay City, Michigan) is a professional Super-Heavyweight boxer, kickboxer and mixed martial artist, known for his bald head and incredible weight. Butterbean stands 5 ft 11 in (180cm) tall and weighs 398 pounds (181 kg).[1] He is the former IBA World Super-Heavyweight Champion and also held the WAA World Heavyweight title.[2] His combined professional fight record currently stands at 90 wins with 63 knockouts, 14 losses and 5 draws.

    Esch's professional boxing record is 77 wins with 58 knockouts, 7 losses and 4 draws. He won his last boxing match against Joe Siciliano, which occurred on March 9, 2007 at the Palladium.

    Known as the "King of 4 rounders", Butterbean developed a cult following after he burst onto the Toughman Contest scene in the United States before entering the world of professional boxing in 1994. He was a five time World Toughman Heavyweight Champion with a record of 56-5 with 36 knockouts (not counted towards pro career).

    While a majority of his opponents were technically limited, club level fighters early in his career, he did move up the ranks to win the IBA World Super-Heavyweight Championship on April 12, 1997 (which he never lost before relinquishing the title).

    Call his manager and tell them you think butterbean's a fatty that can't beat anyone, and none of his wins count, and you'd like to fight him.

    The shirts said ATT, the commentator said ATT... I think it could be correct. I'm going to make the prediction now, before anyone else if Butterbean and Kimbo fight: Butterbean, 2nd round, gogoplata.

    The **** you mean Butterbean is untrained? Who cares about his waist size, the guy actually has decent cardio and hits like a ton of bricks. He's been exciting to watch in Cage Rage, with the limited grappling time, but even on the ground he's a threat due to his massive weight...and the fact he has no neck. Yeah, he's no Fedor, but neither is Kimbo. At the same time, he's no Giant Silva either. He may be a freakshow fighter, but he's a good one.

    Don't be sorry. You simply don't know what the **** you are talking about.
    Read this for flexibility and injury prevention, this, this and this for supplementation, this on grip conditioning, and this on staph. New: On strenght standards, relationships and structural balance. Shoulder problems? Read this.

    My crapuous vlog and my blog of training, stuff and crap. NEW: Me, Mrs. Macho and our newborn baby.

    New To Weight Training? Get the StrongLifts 5x5 program and Rippetoe's "Starting Strength, 2nd Ed". Wanna build muscle/gain weight? Check this article. My review on Tactical Nutrition here.

    The street argument is retarded. BJJ is so much overkill for the street that its ridiculous. Unless you're the idiot that picks a fight with the high school wrestling team, barring knife or gun play, the opponent shouldn't make it past double leg + ground and pound - Osiris
