    To true but to bash a possible future rival or just someone who's trying to break it big seems kinda out of nature for someone of Mr. Liddels charactor.

    Chuck is a BJJ purple and has a strong wrestling background.
    Late to the party, we all know this little fact.

    I think he is reasonably qualified to discuss the ground game.
    Yet, that isn't the tone of the article is it?




    “He’s training and he’s learning but he’s been built up as such a big star, and that’s the thing that bothers me.
    Internet stardom. Nope nothing to do with a BJJ Purple belt or the ground.

    “People talk about him like he’s the next great thing when he really hasn’t done anything. He’s been built up because of the Internet and him beating a bunch of guys on the street.”
    Has nothing to do with a ground game.

    “I could make some impressive knockout videos too if you let me walk outside and just punch people and knock them out—“hey you, come fight!” Liddell told The Sun. “F*** we can make a highlight reel tomorrow and go round beating people up and talking about it. We could just go up to people and start dropping them. Wow!”
    Hmmm gorund game non-existent.

    “Kimbo’s one of those guys who doesn’t have any ground game,”
    Yes, he is qualified to make this statement. Sounds like someone is worried that these other organization may take away some money.

    Dude, I wasn't referring to you but people in general.
    My bad.

    Anyway, I still agree with Chuck's main point which seemed to me to be that Slice doesn't deserve all the hype when he hasn't really done anything other than won some bareknuckle boxing fights.

    You do know he himself has called out Butterbean, Mike Tyson, and Sean Gannon.

    Yup, that's 3 quality opponents right there. Hell, at least one of those guys is retired!

    Chuck having a rant about/against Kimbo really only creates more publicity for the guy.

    If anything Chuck's helping his career.

    Kimbo is no more of a spectacle entrant to professional MMA than Brock Lesnar. Get those two guys to fight each other until they're good enough to fight real UFC fighters.

    He didn't say anything untoward,
    sounds like really reserved smack-talk.
    He's been eating PR for breakfast.

    I want his shirt. Go Team Kimbo! -or something-
