What a crazy time in MMA that was
I'm kind of pissed Kimbo vs Bob Sapp never happened. Not that I'd pay for that hot garbage, but I'll admit I like freakshows. Nothing beats the most elite level fighters, but street brawls are street brawls (although Sapp would need to be on PCP for any aggression and not tap out in 10 seconds).
From what I've been reading, it wouldn't be a shock if they legitimately book something akin to Kimbo/Thompson II for the head-to-head with UFC.
Bellator Reaches Out To Kimbo Slice, But No Deal In Place Just Yet
There was a bit more in the article. I condensed it to this because I seem to remember that there was a rule in place that said the whole article couldn't be posted. Maybe I'm wrong though.Bellator MMA is interested in signing Kevin "Kimbo Slice" Ferguson.
The promotion recently offered the former EliteXC and UFC fighter an opportunity to fight for them, however, Slice was not interested in what was presented, according to sources with knowledge of the situation. Middle Easy first reported the rumor on Monday.
"They had reached out to us," Slice's manager "Icey" Mike Imber told MMAFighting.com, "however, it was very informal and nothing has been decided.
"You know Kimbo is down to fight whenever. There's actually a few options out there, so whatever makes most sense I think he's gonna with."
Imber would not disclose the other offers Slice is currently mulling over.
According to sources, the potential new Bellator regime is interested in Slice, however, the idea to reach out to Slice came from the current regime.
I hope they do not go the EliteXC way and ask Thompson (or whoever Kimbo's opponent will be) to not kick him or take him down.
Don't forget that Kimbo's knee was a mess (And I don't think that now it is much better. He is older so probably his knee is even worse) and that he has nothing to offer in the ground game.
Plus, I do not think he has been training for MMA since he retired. So now he will still be a brawler with legit KO power. But if he fights against a decent MMA fighter (who will not be scared as hell to face Kimbo), he will be beaten even worse than in the Mitrione fight.
Not only brazilians can do this stuff
