    Good Article pointing out the Cons of Kimbo debuting CBS'S Elite XC

    I thought it was a good article. Brought up many points that actual MMA fans are concerned about.

    That article sucks balls because it doesn't acknowledge that Kimbo is training with Bas and has become a real MMA fighter. The dude works hard and is doing it the right way. He isn't drinking and hanging out with thugs. He is a disciplined fighter training with the best.

    I agree with you on that point. However, many still just see him as a "thug, street brawler." Many news stations and critics (O'Reily) will use this as a weapon in their attacks against MMA.

    That, and we have yet to see a Kimbo fight last more than 2 minutes and have any ground work. So, many will just label him as a basic brawler.

    I'm sure CBS and Elite XC will be crying all the way to the bank.

    Kimbo isn't the one that isn't lasting more than 2 minutes, it's his opponents that haven't lasted more than 2 minutes. Big difference. Didn't Kimbo beat Ray Mercer with a gillotine?

    Also, gives a **** what Bill O'Reilly thinks.

    and you?

    Seriously, no matter what MMA does, ****'O'Reilly will still have enough sand in his vagina for another flaming editorial.

    True, many still see Kimbo as thug and a brawler. Those many are stupid and ignorant. Stupid and ignorant are the characteristics of humanity, so why should one be surprised, care or be worried about.?

    If it isn't calling Kimbo a thug, it will be some other way for the dumb ruminant masses to display their dumbfuckery.

    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

    More to the point of human stupidity, Dan Wetzel is a goddam, retarded, neck-tie, behind-the-desk dork:

    Kimbo Slice, a one-time homeless man, one-time strip club bouncer, one-time backyard, back-alley brawler turned Internet sensation/big money mixed martial artist isn’t a problem. Only in America, right?

    Yes, only in America, and thank fucking God for it, that in this land any man with enough hard work can be what he wants to be.


    Kimbo Slice being a street fighter, rather than a Brazilian jiu-jitsu or Muay Thai master, isn’t a problem either

    First, uhm, wrong. Training under Bas? Gillotining Mercer? Strategically keeping distance against Tank and avoiding the brawl?

    Second, how many MMAers are actually BJJ or MT masters? Seriously. Most are competent all round fighters, but not necessarily BJJ/MT masters. Goddam dork.

    No, he isn’t the best and brightest in MMA.

    Not the brigest? Perhaps, but, at least to me, saying so sounds too fucking insulting.

    Anderson Silva, B.J. Penn and Georges St. Pierre display what MMA is all about. Not menacing scowls and WWE-like personas, but unreal athletic ability, disciplined training and tremendous intelligence from fighters as multi-skilled as they are fearless.

    Menacing scowls??? Does this guy watch MMA at all? Holy ****, somebody send Wandy a memo that he needs to mend his ways!!!

    Anyways, that's just enough out of that article to show the dorkiness of it.



    [EDIT]

    On a second, more careful reading, the article does have some truth:

    But neither the network nor EliteXC are treating the sport or Kimbo Slice as anything but disposable programming. And that’s the problem here.

    The author is still a dork, though.

    funny he mentions menacing scowls because from what i have seen and heard of kimbo hes a pretty cool guy., its the persona that others have built for him that gives him a bad rap.
