Father’s Day Tribute: Five MMA Father-Son Moments That Make Your Relationship With Dad Look Great

Kimbo Hits the Canvas

There’s a time in every son’s life when he believes that his dad is superman, the toughest guy on the block. For most of us, that illusion is shattered by the time we’re nine. Then again, most of our dads aren’t street fightin’, porn star guardin’, pseudonym sportin’ YouTube superstars.

Bearded brawler Kevin Ferguson rose to internet infamy fighting in Miami’s backyards, street corners, and wharves under the nome de punchKimbo Slice”. While he lacked pro experience, he had what many veteran MMA fighters so desperately desire: a name. Seeing an opportunity to draw curious, casual viewers, start-up MMA promotion EliteXC signed Slice to a series of bouts against equally one dimensional brawlers. Already 3-0 in the organization, Slice was slated to take on UFC pioneer Ken Shamrock—who was on a five fight skid—in the highly promoted main event of the CBS broadcast “EliteXC- Heat”. True to form, “The World’s Most Dangerous Man” pulled out of the event on the morning of the fight after sustaining a “freak cut” in a “training mishap”, sending the promoters scrambling to find a last minute substitute. Luckily they needed only to look slightly lower on the card where they spotted former UFC competitor Seth Petruzelli. Petruzelli was bumped up a weight class and into the spotlight against Slice. It only took fourteen seconds and one off-balance jab to crumble Kimbo. Following EliteXC’s marketing of Slice as an indestructible juggernaut, there were plenty of shocked fans in the audience, but none of them could match the disbelief and agony of Slice’s son following the humiliating loss.

Regarding the "baseball court", that's what GSP calls it in the linked video. Regarding my spelling, yes, I suck.

" 'Skala' was publicly busted sneaking a peak at Gina Carano" should be "sneaking a peek".

and yeah, "baseball court"? unless you meant "baseketball".

No mention of Jens Pulver?

"It was the scariest moment in Jens Pulver's terrifying young life. Pulver's father was in a drunken rage, which happened regularly. He pulled out a shotgun, aimed it at his son and told him to open his mouth. Pulver said that after a few terrifying moments, his father took the shotgun out of the 7-year-old's mouth and told him, "You aren't worth the bullets." Pulver, his three younger siblings and their mother lived in terror for years. Beatings and verbal abuse were a regular occurrence. "

What the fuck is a "baseball court"?

Really well done, Crush.

Can't believe you missppelled schadenfreude though. That's rookie shitt, yo.

1. Whoever made the Leben vid complete with sound effects and text is a keyboard warrior, nothing more. I'd pay to see that person refer to Quarry as a "fag" in person. Regardless what you think of Quarry as an MMA fighter, I'd bet the farm that he'd be able to handle business with the creator of that vid.

2. God bless Seth Petruzelli for derailing the Kimbo Slice bandwagon of bullshit.

3. Fuck everything about the Shaws.

In fairness to Coleman, the story I heard was that the kids were supposed to be in the back, but Coleman spotted them in the crowd post fight and he felt he had to console them with the daddy is fine, etc. So the fault on this would be (like so many other things) on the PRIDE honchos.

That Miller story is parenting gold! Who's to say that's not good parenting?

Is Kimbo's son "special"? Just wondering...

Oh shit, that Miller story was awesome.

Not sure it the sound on that last vid was messed up, or it was just my pc, but Coleman sounds like Lou Ferrigno. Which is kind of how I think Mark Coleman would sound these days...
