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

[VIDEO] Kimbo Slice Done Crushed Another Can

(I swear to God, you guys, I’ve seen this image before.) 

Yesterday, I went a little off the beaten path and covered the world of professional wrestling, specifically Brock Lesnar’s re-signing with the WWE and subsequent F-5ing of company President Vince McMahon. Although the video was unquestionably hilarious, most of you guys (at least those who took the time to comment) were not able to set aside your MMA bias for even a second to enjoy it. And it’s a shame, because even if Air Force One is your all-time favorite film, does that mean you cannot occasionally enjoy the goofball satirical humor of Airplane? Please don’t delve any further into that terrible analogy, but of all the websites to cover the Lesnar story (and there were a few), I was kind of surprised that the audience of the “comedic” one had the least sense of humor about it.

So I’m not sure how you’ll take the news that TUF 10 veteran Kimbo Slice returned to the world of boxing last night, or the fact that we’ve decided to devote yet another article to it. On one hand, Kimbo is at least competing in a “real” sport after leaving the UFC. On the other, he is as tenuously connected to the world of MMA as Lesnar is these days, so perhaps we should just ignore him. On the third hand, Slice’s most recent fight against Australian-based journeyman Shane Tilyard was fucking awesome. As is usually the case in a Slice fight, things weren’t exactly pretty, but boy were they entertaining (for a round or so). For Christ’s sake, Kimbo attempted two takedowns in the fight. If you can’t appreciate that kind of irony, then we are just not the same kind of fight fans.

Video below.

So kids, what have we learned today?

1. Kimbo still hits pretty damn hard.

2. Kimbo’s cardio still sucks, but at 38 years old, we’re not going to knock the guy for it, and are actually going to commend Kimbo for the incredible display of heart he showed after getting rocked.

3. Despite Bas Rutten’s preaching for years now, it seems that fighters are just starting to warm up to the concept of the liver shot. First Anthony Pettis KO’s Cowboy with a liver kick and now Kimbo finishes Titties 2.0 with a nasty hook to the body.

Yeah, I think Kimbo gets way too much unfair criticism onlne as well. As GistoftheFist pointed out, he's 38 and has bad knees. He tried to compete with the most elite mma fighters in the world and did alright. Now he's giving professional boxing a run and I wish him the best. He may not make it to the top of the boxing world, but his fight are exciting as hell and he has a lot of heart!!

Like I said before, Kimbo will never get any respect no matter how hard he works. Youtube's comment section is filled with armchair boxing experts who never step into the ring and point out every flaw and compare him to top level competition.

Kimbo's aging and has bad knees, but he can still put on an exciting fight and drop opponents with heavy shots, yet every time he does people yell "FAKE". I hope he continues his boxing career, makes lots of money, and cements a good legacy for himself. Sure he didn't get off to an early start, but how many other 38 year olds have the guts to do what he does?

The reaction yesterday shouldn't surprise you. Some of the commentors on here are real douchebags.

I know, I know. I'm leaving.

That was an awesome fight!! Kimbo showed heart!! The other guy had a hard head, soft mid-section. Good fight.

@ktronics yea ur right I just watched it it was a forearm. Yea it was hard to see what exactly it was, but I noticed right away that it wasn't a punch.

Kimbo vs Rampage! They can have it at the fitty yard line of the Georgia Dome while the Dirty Birds kick for three..

Nope, dont give a fuck about Lesnar, and I dont give a fuck about this "couldnt cut it in MMA" jig, unless he's punching some other savage's eyeball out in a Miami backyard somewhere

Annnnnnd now, for the SEMI-MAIN EVENT.

@dipset - in the Jones/Calzaghe fight it was a forearm shot by RJJ. It was pretty tough to see in real time.

Roy jones once elbowed joe calzaghe, and dropped him in there fight, and it was blatantly, but the ref still didnt call it

Is it just the low quality or does Kimbo elbow him at the 3:40 mark?
