Steroids in MMA
Which MMA Fighter Will Test Positive For Steroids Next?

Kimbo Slice Latest False Death Rumor Victim

(We’re just glad that our t-shirt isn’t to blame for Kimbo’s death. We will take credit for this one cursing Gus Johnson’s Strikeforce commentating gig.)

If a mediocre backyard brawler-turned mixed martial artist dies, does anyone in the MMA media notice?

Apparently not.

It seemed that only the mainstream media outlets yesterday picked up on a story of the demise of Miami, Florida resident Kevin Ferguson — which is the legal name of Kimbo Slice. Maybe it was because it wasn’t Kevin "Kimbo Slice" Ferguson who had passed away, unless of course he had wifi access in the morgue.

The bearded bald-headed, Internet meme who is back in cahoots with Gary Shaw and is training for his boxing debut next year Tweeted the following at 1:00 am this morning:

Ferguson joins a growing list of fighters that includes Kimo Leopoldo and Badr Hari who have been reported dead by media sources in the past year-and-a-half. 

I blame Jared Shaw for the failed publicity stunt.

Who cares? Now, this website will get a billion hits and a national holiday will be declared to celebrate the demise of Tito-looka-the-size-a-my-fuckin'-head Ortiz.

If this shit keeps up, CP will probably start a monthly post entitled...

"Kimbo's Lies"

First he was fighting in Japan, than he was on "Survivour" and now he's dead (kinda).

Whats next month? Kimbo Slice goes to the moon!!

What exactly is a kimbo slice and does it taste good? Is it expensive? Where can I get myself a kimbo slice to sample?
