Exclusive: Kimbo Slice Puts Getting KOd Rumours To Rest
Chris Howie Reporting
MMANews.com had the chance to speak with Kimbo Slice yesterday and when asked about the rumours surrounding being knocked out by Forrest Griffin during a sparring match he was quick to put them to rest.
"No, there is no truth to that at all. It's bullshit and Forrest Griffin will tell you that it's bullshit to." Slice stated
The rumours began when UFC President Dana White questioned Kimbo in a a recent interview. He was quotes as saying "Kimbo's not there yet. He would get destroyed. I heard he just got knocked out by Forrest Griffin last week in a sparring match after a kick to the head."
Kimbo elaborated a little more on what actually happened "The fact is it was a good sparring session and I was training with Forrest and he was talking to me about defending yourself at all times and then he threw a big kick and I was like "WOAH I never even seen that coming" but no I never got knocked out. Even if I did get knocked out, saying that and putting that rumour out there just makes you a pussy."
MMANews.com will have a complete interview up with Kimbo later today or early tomorrow morning so be on the look out for it. Kimbo goes a little more in depth about that training session as well as talks about his upcoming fight with James Thompson, his development as an MMA fighter and his online feud with Chuck Liddell. Stay Tuned!!
