(Mickey O’Neil would not stand for this shit.)
As with anything featuring Kimbo Slice nowadays, the video of his “suspicious” fourth round KO of Brian Green last weekend has blown up thanks to a mix of controversy and street certified swagger (but mainly controversy), receiving over one million hits in just a few days (that’s good, right?). As many of you noticed when we originally reported on the fight, Slice’s last second knockout seemed a little too convenient to stomach. The punch didn’t seem to have much behind it, and Green’s reaction seemed like it was a poor bit of acting. Like Nicolas Cage in The Wicker Man remake poor.
When it comes down to it, no one but those involved can truly know whether the fight was fixed or not, but we all know the Internet has never needed a shred of evidence to start lobbing accusations at a public figure. For nearly five days, Green has had to endure the relentless mockery of keyboard warriors nationwide, and anyone from Dana White to well, myself, can attest to the lengths that a pissed off troll with a computer in his hands will go.
Brian Green, however, has enough of this shit. According to him, everyone just needs to step the hell back, because he ain’t no flopper. Matter of fact, Green says, if everyone wants validation, a rematch will certainly satisfy the naysayers.
We could be wrong, but it appears that Green, fueled by his own mix of disdain and Jagermeister, typed the following message for the entire world (ie. Facebook) to see at some point Wednesday night:
Finally the cloudiness of a KO Saturday night is wearing off mostly…. Still got a BROKEN ORBITAL BONE (even though I was supposedly taking a dive the whole fight and Kimbo wasn’t REALLY fighting me apparently until the very last combination which he lands 3 consecutive punches ON THE BUTTON which turned out my lights)
Well, I took this biggest opportunity I ever have been given, and gave it my all. In the end, Kimbo Slice Placed 3 consecutive punches together and all three connected clean. AFTER I was winning on all 3 judges score cards..
I put everything on the line with this fight, to have thousands of people hating on me claiming I took a dive. smh. I can not believe this, and it really makes me sick.
700,000 Youtube views of people watching ONLY THE LAST ROUND (after I was gassed in the second round) where I got KO’d and 80% of them claiming I took a dive with ONLY THREE SECONDS LEFT!!!!
…. THREE SECONDS LEFT…. Who does that? seriously. . . Now I have a 60 day medical suspension and can not fight the last person who beat me in an MMA Fight 8 fights ago which leaves that promoter in a bad position Which I am sorry for. (A re match I have also been BEGGING for, for an entire year now) And I will be missing out on an opportunity to make the most money I EVER have in my hometown with all of my recent success of 7 consecutive Wins. (Sponsors backing me up, Selling more tickets than I EVER HAVE at home, my biggest purse yet to date with the organization, and lastly, the REVENGE of beating the guy who beat me at home..
I KNEW I HAD TO make it to a decision, so I only got a 7 day suspension, and i could fight my upcoming fight April 13, (20 days after Kimbo)
I took the fight against Kimbo, because I truly don’t feel he is a legit pro fighter…. He is a savage brawler, and also BACK IN HIS DAY, was very very dangerous…. Now he is old, and I knew I could last a decision… No way did I think I could actually WIN IT. Then at the end of the first round, I felt myself avoiding his bombs, and finding a home for my punches.
THEN I also thought that he would REALLY be out of shape, because his original opponent had backed out and they hadn’t found a replacement yet, so I figured he hadn’t been training THAT hard.
Avoid the BIG punches, and last a DECISION= Make a HUGE name for yourself, especially for me being a submission guy! You can see how hard he was throwing in the first round when he was fresh, and that he was trying to take my head off…. I think I got in his head at the weigh ins getting in his face, and telling him “I aint scared” and repeating that in the ring at fight TIME!
I ate a couple good punches early, and felt him getting tired. after landing good shots on him, I eventually started telling him “You wasn’t expecting THIS was you?!?!” Trying even more to get in his head, and make him doubt himself, and feel threatened.
I WISH i would have got paid extra for all this CRAP I am receiving…
And thanks to those of you who take the time to congratulate me. Those who KNOW I would NEVER take a dive in ANY fight.
I ALMOST beat that Monster. Think I BS’d? BOOK THE FIGHT AGAIN. with an actual CAMP to prepare for him…. Even on only 2 weeks notice. I will SMOKE that fool. PEACE
Seems legit, right? You ignorant sluts.
If you were a member of Little Orphan Annie’s Secret Society, therefore receiving the illustrious decoder pin, then you would know that by simply scanning over the CAPITALIZED WORDS, you would find Brian’s true message:
I KNEW I HAD TO TIME A HUGE KO ON THE BUTTON IN THE LAST ROUND. ONLY THREE SECONDS LEFT OR I WIN DECISION AND HIS CAMP SMOKE ME. NEVER BOOK THIS AGAIN. I CRAP HUGE BS. PEACE.
Nice try, Brian. Unfortunately for you, we’re smarter than we look.
