MMA Fighter Challenges People to Punch Him in the Face, Everyone Fails

Videos: Kimbo, Sandman, Penn, and Vera in the Gym


Whoever’s in charge of video editing at Triumph United has incredible taste in music (though we would have probably chosen this jam for the soundtrack instead). If you’re not interested in seeing Kimbo Slice and Bas Rutten do some synchronized striking drills during a recent meet-and-greet at Elite MMA, we’d suggest skipping to the 1:54 mark to get your first taste of Kimbo workin’ it on the ground. Props to BloodyElbow. Also…

If you're going to use a Rocky tune during a training montage it's pretty standard to go with Survivor, but whatever. It's all gay.

In the first minute, Bas and Kimbo looked like they are ready for Dancing with The Stars. I was very, very, very impressed.
Im sure Rutten will show him some of is famous slap and tickle techniques from Pancrase.

Kimbo seems way more comfortable signing autographs than he does on the floor.
Btw, that was not sparring. It looks like the judo chess game my son does in class where you alterntate moves without offering resistance.

With all that said, its hard to hate Kimbo: he seems like a genuinely nice guy, speaks a lot better than you would think by looking at him and you have to hope he can put some money on the side within the next 2-3 fights before he is exposed by a real fighter. It would be so much easier to wish him to fail if he was an asshole.

Holy S#@T Kimbo looked even more ridiculous on the ground than I thought he would! They are wise to protect him from anyone who will take him down, it would be ugly. He looked like the time my 13 year old nephew came to gym to roll...
