    Oh sweet! He seems to be a little old to be getting started, but I suppose after Herschel Walked debuted at 47, age doesn't have to be a factor any more.

    I guess it's gonna be a matter of how much striking he's willing to invest in his career...'cause the grappling arts are pretty well covered.

    From everything I've seen Dr. Ferguson has an amazing work ethic and pays a lot of attention to both the technical and strategic aspects of competition necessary to succeed. I'm sure he'll do just fine.

    He's a hell of an athlete too -- great genetic gifts plus great training.

    But even more important, he's Kimbo Slice's cousin.

    i guess the bloodline could help him, rather than hurt him.
    one is a rough and tough street brawler, and the other is an olympian with a doctorate! kimbo lovers AND haters would love to see rhadi fight.

    i really wish him the best.
    there are so many rhadi haters in the judo world and he doesn't deserves it.
