Jeff Monson Issues Futile Challenge To Kimbo Slice

I think we could accurately describe this video as a solid idea that needed a little more planning. As much as I like the concept of the MMA community shaming Gary Shaw into putting Kimbo Slice up against quality opponents, just pointing out the obvious about Kimbo and then tearing a copy of ESPN the Magazine in half isn’t really going to get it done. I also have my doubts about whether or not Gary Shaw can be shamed. It’s going to take a real team effort from the entire MMA world to do it.

So rather than simply criticize, I think we should offer Jeff Monson some notes to make his second effort a little stronger. Let’s try and keep it constructive. I’ll go first.

- Jeff, I like that you opted not to wear a shirt in order to show off your tattoos and that you used those UFC posters as a backdrop, but I just feel like there’s something missing right now.

Maybe you could hold the magazine up to your face and mock Kimbo’s voice a little before ripping the thing in half. Or you could come up with a stupid nickname for him and then you could keep referring to him that way throughout the video. I think that would really amp up the emotional resonance.

Other thoughts?

Until Gary Shaw man's up it's futile to challenge Kimbo. Unless you're a guy who Elite XC thinks Kimbo can beat, you're not going to get the chance to fight. Monson has a decided experience and Grappling advantage. He has heavy hands and can match Kimbo's power. They'll put Ken Shamrock in their before they'll put Jeff Monson in there. Maybe they should go with Mark Kerr or Paul Buentello...those guys can beat Kimbo...disregard

Yoko, apparently you are one of the fools that have been duped into thinking Kimbo actually has talent. Nobdy has been or is afraid of Kimbo as you say. Except maybe Bo Cantrell and that is why he took the money to take a dive. Everyone knew he was just a brawler and would have no ground game and it is PROVEN on CBS.

I would love to see the Snowman fight Kimbo. With Kimbo and his lil' video saying, " Tapping is for b*#%es!", it would be great seeing him break his arm or prove himself one.

Its pretty sad how many haters are still in this world. There are many fighters that i don't like and that i don't respect and i will never hate on them. I have seen kimbo fight in person back in the day and i for 1 respect his ability. Soon enough all you haters will jump on the band wagon and change how you feel. Same thing always happens. I suggest until he actually gets beat you should not talk so much.

by the way, the snowman rocks!!!! ATT all the way!!!!

I think it is funny how nobody wanted to fight Kimbo Slice until they found out he was weak on the ground. Everyone was a afraid of Kimbo, but now they crawl out of the woodwork to fight him. Give me a break. Monson does really have a ground game either from all of his losses by submission. He is just looking for an "easy" win. Won't be as easy as he thinks and not only that, but Kimbo could rip the mag in half the first time without the tear in it.

Must be nice to have the extra cash to ship out on ESPN the Magazine just to tear. Shit aint cheap.
Here's an idea- June 22, 2008 at 11:28 pm
Monson should have hulked up and took a big nasty shit on that magazine.
3 day old news- June 22, 2008 at 7:50 pm
I have to agree with this news being old already. Lindland challenged Kimbo too, if anyone else goes to other websites then they would know this is old news.

Not bad for a first attempt, but he should run the shit-talk express a bit longer. Monson's training partner Josh Barnett should know a ton about that, he should go to him for advice.

“I thought I’d try youtube because I know the fucker doesn’t read”

LOL. I love the subtleness here. He doesn't say Kimbo CAN'T read, just that he DOESN'T and he kinda lets the audience infer the illiteracy.

Classic shit talking in my humble opinion.

@ THANKS:

Nobody's got a gun to your head, get the fuck out if you don't like it.

You fucking report news like 3 days late every time. Get on the ball with the storys or hire me to make this site not suck as much. THANKS.

fuck yeah snowman!

If Monson really wants to get Kimbo to fight, he should break into his pathfinder while he is sleeping and tea bag him. Video tape that and put it on youtube. Then we would see that fight fo sho.

Jeff Monson would dominate Kimbo
Stephan' Boner- June 22, 2008 at 5:14 pm
haha maybes that like take 4 or something and they had to put the little tear in as previous takes ended with mr monson struggling to rip the mag in half
Douchebaggery- June 22, 2008 at 4:11 pm
it's sad how underachievers like Monson are challenging Kimbo AFTER his ground game got exposed on tv. I can't wait until someone busts his melon open in his next fight. all the tats and bs anarchy talk wasn't getting Jeff the attention he craves so he had to come up with this shit
PotatoHead- June 22, 2008 at 4:03 pm
Damn, you're right... good eye, 10fm@ny!!!
10fm@ny- June 22, 2008 at 3:37 pm
anyone else notice the slight rip in the magazine were he tears it at... I guess having all of those tat's still doesn't make you strong enough to tear a mag without a little help
Ouch! that hurts- June 22, 2008 at 3:20 pm
Aren't we just putting way to much effort into convice the knuckleheads of the world that Kimbo is a sham. Just ignore the hype and concentrate on real fighters and he will go back to fighting homeless people for rent money.
BIG CHRIS- June 22, 2008 at 3:09 pm
After Brett Rogers mops the floor with Kimbo none of this will matter....the world will soon see how sorry Kimbo really is.....
Myles Kilometers- June 22, 2008 at 2:57 pm
I'd probably suggest making Kimbo's ESPN magazine cover kiss some pictures of guys...maybe even cut a hole where his mouth is and stick your tongue through it all the while doing a badly voiced, high pitched dialogue between the pictures arguing over who gets to be "the bottom" first.
Alex- June 22, 2008 at 2:54 pm
Hahahahahaha, "I thought I'd try youtube because I know the fucker doesn't read"
