Videos: The UFC Won’t Be Protecting Kimbo, Rampage Makes the Jokes to Keep From Killing Y’all + More

In this CageWriter video from an Ultimate Fighter media day held yesterday in Las Vegas, UFC prez Dana White gives a few more details about the signing of Kimbo Slice and his future with the organization. Notably, Dana repeats his assertion that Kimbo’s TUF contract will be the same as everybody else’s, but adds that it will be "a lot fucking different" if he actually wins the show. He refutes the theory that Kimbo will be protected in any way in the matchups or saved for the later episodes, and says that theoretically he could be picked first to fight. Also, Icey Mike is one of the smartest guys he’s met in this business, apparently.

After the jump: Quinton Jackson says he doesn’t trust his temper around Rashad Evans and hopes he can get through TUF 10 without going to jail. Plus, day 2 of Dana White’s WEC 41 blog, in which DW tries to get predictions on the Faber/Brown match from some of his fighters — like many casual MMA fans, Wanderlei Silva and Rampage aren’t even aware that it’s happening — then Dana tries one of those soul handshakes with Rashad and calls him "homey."

Wanderlei is INSANE, holy shit.

He would easily be the best dude to have in a bar fight on your side.

Oops, that was @ Necro, not The Bizz.

@ The_Bizz... Griffin and Faber fought in September of 2005 and Griffin won by TKO in round 3. My guess is that there is still bad blood from that fight.

I caught that too when he said that. That would be awesome, but usually Dana's "huge" announcements always disappoint. So my guess is it's either a big deal with ESPN/HBO/etc, or it's the legalization of MMA in NY.

All I know is: "there's gonna be some more Black on Black crime!"




AND SOMEBODY TELL WANDERLEI TO SHAVE HIS FUCKING HEAD FOR THE FIGHT!!!!!!!!!!

I like how that picture on the wall looks like Wandy is gonna get his brains blown out.

Damn, how many times does Rampage say "know what I'm sayin?" If you had a drinking game for every time he says that in the video, you would be wasted after 6 minutes.

lmfao @ Hug/Clinch

Wanderlei is awesome.

did anyone hear dana in the first video kind of slip a "when Fedor gets here". Could have been a slip of the tongue with this "super deal" looming that DW refuses to talk about.

I'm with Griffin: Brown by ref stoppage.
The_Bizz- June 3, 2009 at 9:21 am
i have a feeling there will be a Griffen-Maynard fight soon

Why isn't Tyson G a big fan of Faber's? What's his reason? You guys know?
Armbreaker- June 3, 2009 at 8:33 am
It wouldn't be the first time Rampage went to jail.
PaulO- June 3, 2009 at 7:53 am
Vandy doesn't hug, he clenches. That's awesome.
Jay Smith- June 3, 2009 at 7:26 am
I agree Art. I also think that's pretty big of Dana to offer him the bigger contract if he wins. He deserves it. He will win it too. I hope to see a much improved ground game from Slice.
Art Gibs- June 3, 2009 at 6:59 am
Hah! Just like I said yesterday. DW will give Kimbo a much bigger contract if he wins; that's the logical way to do it.

I'm looking forward to next season's TUF. I won't be switching back and
forth between TUF and Reno 911. Good because 911 kind of sux now.
