With a  face only a mother can love and a fearsome reputation as a hard-hitting  street-slugger immortalized on Youtube, street-sensation turned MMA fighter Kimbo Slice is a man reviled, scorned, and underrated by almost EVERYONE – Sherdoggers, elitest MMA “experts”, the mainstream , my mother, and probably your mother.

Vilified by many UFC/TUF/white-trash semen-stains, Kimbo hasn’t let that faze him.

He hired Bas Rutten  to train him and has spent a year diligently doing so, spends countless hours in the gym “absorbing techniques like a sponge” as his trainers say …  joined EliteXC and pretty much is “the face” of EliteXC and the major attraction, as can be judged by Kimbo’s latest showing against Tank Abbot, where he earned a cool $ 175,000 of bread and chedda, and made EliteXC’s latest show, Street Certified, a run-away business success, when he made quick work of former UFC badboy Tank Abbott.

Abbott’s apparent fear of Kimbo was clear as day at the weigh-ins and in the cage, with Abbott refraining to look at Kimbo nervously. 

It is funny how many of those people who hate Kimbo respect Bas Rutten — and Bas Rutten is nothing but glowing in his appraisal of Kimbo and his willingness to learn and improve his game and his respect of others.

They call him a “freakshow”, “can” — then defend Brock Lesnar — Kimbo is only 6″1, 237 ibs, if he’s a freakshow, then every UFC HW is Godzilla. Kimbo has more experience and fights then Lesnar … yet Kimbo is a can and Lesnar is “impressive.” 

That makes the contradiction even more overwhelming — why is Kimbo so hated ?

It has to do with his past affiliation and image as the big bad black man and his connection to black hip-hop culture, making his bread,  and as Kimbo’s haters are largely UFC/TUfers who are almost exclusively white-trash racists and Dana ball-lickers, they hate on him for being NOT in the UFC, and for being a big scary black man in Youtube videos.

Kimbo is hated so much by the UFC lemmings because he is so visible and known, he’s probably the most known MMA fighter in America.. even for people who don’t know MMA … people who never watch UFC or even know MMA KNOW Kimbo, ‘oh he’s the big black dude KO people on Youtube, yeah, I know Ultimate Fighting ‘ is commonly heard ….

Kimbo is about to reach super-star fame and name recognition when EliteXC air their first show in April on CBS .. an event I predict will rock MMA and permanently alter the landscape of MMA in the U.S …

Time will tell …. I personally think Kimbo has a decent chance against many 10 ten HWs … ( not including names !,)

Kimbo is hungry, and Kimbo wants him some bread !
