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

Kimbo Slice to Fight Rogers in October?

At least that’s what he said during an appearance on The Dan Le Batard Show yesterday. When asked about Brett Rogers‘s call-out at the EliteXC post-fight press conference last Saturday, Slice said:

“He’s probably looking at it like, okay yo, Kimbo Slice could be a meal ticket, but his corner needs to tell him there’s ways to do it, and that just was not one of the ways. Instead of making the fight up more on the business tip, this is gonna be personal.”

Le Batard asked if that meant he’d definitely be fighting Rogers next, to which Kimbo replied, “Yeah, hell yeah, I’m gonna fight him now, the man just called me out.” As for when the fight could take place? “Probably October.” Slice doesn’t expect to fight before then, partly because of injuries sustained to his thumbs.

In another interesting moment from the interview, Kimbo acknowledged all the pressure he was feeling from his bosses to win the fight:

“If I was gonna lose the fight, it would have been a major letdown to CBS — that’s like [*bleeeeeep*] CBS, you know how big-time that is — and then you got Showtime, and EliteXC, ProElite. You got all these huge, major companies…and everyone depending on this one guy to win this just one fight, and if he doesn’t win this one fight, it’ll just be a major letdown, it would have just been a disappointment to all these people.”

Of course, Gary Shaw could still throw a wrench in Kimbo’s plans, but for now it’s looking like the Grim’s pleas will be answered. Listen to the rest of interview to hear Kimbo’s full analysis of his fight with James Thompson, and an embarrassing parody tribute song by fake-Cameo that Kimbo gives a “[*bleep*]‘n strong 7.”

Have any of you watched the last fight? I haven't seen a fight that rigged since watching a WWE match. Clearly Kimbo Slice could kick my ass, but there are plenty of professional MMA fighters that could kick his ass. I hope they allow his next fight to be less scripted.

It's a shame you are from the same area as me. You sound like an ignorant thug. You must be black.

I think Kimbo is stepping up here on a personal level, not a professional one. I'm doubtful that fight will happen at all this year. I'm Shaw is going nuts trying to figure out how to market his promotion if their boy can't deliver.

Frankly I think he'll reach the conclusion that Robbie Lawler should get a promotional push, since he's you know, a legit competitor.
