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

Kimbo Slice Planning to Re-Emerge as a Pro Boxer

As you’ve surely noticed, Kimbo Slice has been laying low since his embarassing loss to Seth Petruzelli at EliteXC: Heat. And though he would have been an excellent addition to DREAM’s Super Hulk Tournament, Kimbo’s days as an MMA fighter might be over for good. Last week, MMA Fanhouse reported that the YouTube-brawler-turned-MMA-sideshow is no longer contractually tied to Strikeforce, and now the Sun Sentinel is passing along this bit of news about Slice’s athletic future:

Streetfighter Kimbo Slice of Coral Springs is stepping out of the cage and into the ring, according to promoter Gary Shaw, who gave the YouTube streetfighting sensation his 15 minutes of fame on CBS in the now-defunct EliteXC league. Slice is training in a private Fort Lauderdale gym and could return to the same venue where Seth Petruzelli ended Slice’s rapid rise in mixed martial arts in 14 seconds. Shaw and Don King have a pro card scheduled for July 11 at the BankAtlantic Center. The date is tentative because it conflicts with the July 8-11 Women’s National Golden Gloves Tournament at the Fort Lauderdale Airport Hilton, and King said he doesn’t like to conflict with local boxing shows.

Be careful, Kimbo: Don King is a wretched, slimy, reptilian mothafucka. But at least the sport of boxing will allow Kimbo to rebuild his confidence against "opponents" who are all but paid to lose. Was Kimbo’s TKO loss to Petruzelli proof that he has no chin under that beard? Will Ferg flourish in a combat environment that prohibits takedowns and kicks? Or have you already decided that you’re not going to care about Kimbo Slice, no matter what happens to him?

if they put him in the ring against any homo fighters, his boxing will end up just like his mma carer.

finally he admits that he has no ground game and no intention of learning one. come on, we were never going to hear "ju jitsu black belt- Kimbo Slice!"

Answer to your rhetorical question that ended the article: The third one. Now that he's out of MMA, I really don't give a shit.

Saw him this weekend out in SoCal, said he had just gotten done training and was grabbing a bite to eat at the Common's in Calabasas, looks pretty cut, and is a very approachable guy

Apparently "Redmoose" cares. You took the time to post a comment if you really didn't give a shit you'd have skipped over this topic completely.

@ Cookie Monster
I'm pretty sure he's balding so, it will only be a "halfro".........get it?....... instead of Afro,........a "halfro".
Is that what everyone means by epic failure?????
Redmoose- May 18, 2009 at 11:12 am
who cares?

Kimbo Slice has heavy hands.

After watching him get knocked out like a bitch by Seth and then see him try to argue with the ref... I couldn't care less about him. Not to be confused with Dana White's "I could care less." He's a humongous douchebag, and he should go back to being a bodyguard for a porn guy. I'd like to watch fighters fight, not idiots who can't take a jab from someone who took the fight on 5? hours notice?

It only took 5 girls to pick Kimbo up after Seth Petruzelli knocked his ass out!
Cookie Monster- May 18, 2009 at 10:26 am
i have no idea what to think about kimbo anymore...all i know is that if he rocked a full on afro with that beard i would be a fan for life
the glza- May 18, 2009 at 9:23 am
i think they get prettier the further left you go, like a skank-spectrum rainbow.

i still don't get it. i watched ferg get full-on punched in the face many times, and it never phazed him -- i don't understand how seth did it.

kimbo might do well at boxing... i'll watch it.
Jay Smith- May 18, 2009 at 9:20 am
I never could figure out why everyone hated Kimbo so much. I would take the cash that the Shaws were throwin at him too. The dude does have a family to support. I wish him well.
As far as the bitches go, come on Kadumel, you know you'd still hit dog!!! A couple of em ain't bad, but all of em can get it, including the confused white bitch second from the left with the Peg Bundy weave.

I predict two "fluke" KOs by cans before he's completely exposed and signing 8x10s in middle school gyms after laying down for Greg "The Hammer" Valentine.
d0zer- May 18, 2009 at 8:42 am
@ TheRealKadumel, I would fuck the 1st three girls. The 4th girl looks like she may have just farted and the last looks like Cher's stunt double.
agentsmith- May 18, 2009 at 8:41 am
The one with the dark hair is a total butterface. And the chick on the far right is kinda ugly too.
d0zer- May 18, 2009 at 8:40 am
As long as none of his opponents lift their knee like they are going to kick before they throw a weak jab I think he will do alright.
TheRealKadumel- May 18, 2009 at 8:39 am
She may have a phat arse, but did you see her face dude?
Da Truth- May 18, 2009 at 8:35 am
That Goddess on the far right is 'Lucious Lopez' she has the most unbelievably delicious PHAT ASS in the world... never thought id ever be jealous of Kimbo over anything!
TheRealKadumel- May 18, 2009 at 8:30 am
Does anyone else think that only 1 of those bitches in that picture looks decent? I mean I am usually one to say stfu you would hit that to someone who says that, but jesus the closer I look the uglier those bitches look...
mayhem- May 18, 2009 at 8:28 am
This dude is STILL in with Shaw? Hahahahaha!!!
If he got KTFO by an off balance JAB from Seth then any fighter worth thier salt should be able to KO this bum... Then again fighters are paid to lose in Boxxing so maybe he will be a champ in one of the 100 diffrent weight classes or what ever they have in boxing now. Don King has his new cash cow.

Oh and if he will be boxing here in SoFla you should believe that my father and I will be going to watch this motherfucker "get his bread, 'cause a nigga gotta eat."

And he's just gonna be fed cans like he was supposed to in MMA. I still hope he gets knocked the fuck out and knows boxing and MMA aren't something that go down in backyards.

Kimbo Slice lives in my fucking hometown? Goddamnit.
