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

“The clean version or the unclean version?”

Last night’s episode of ESPN: 360 included a profile on urrybody’s favorite street-brawler-turned-MMA-contender, Kevin “Kimbo Slice” Ferguson. If you’re already a fan of Kimbo, you won’t find too much new information in the segment’s broad strokes, but check out the video below to learn about Kimbo’s first street fight, his tough times in the wake of Hurricane Andrew, and the origins of his life as an Internet star. As the clip reveals, Ferguson’s long-term contract with EliteXC pays him “more than six-figures a fight” (which translates to over $5,000 per second in his last match against Bo Cantrell, King of the Tomato Cans). Also, Tito Ortiz thinks Kimbo would get “crushed within seconds” against the level of competition in the UFC. Big words from a man who knows he’ll never be in the same weight class as the guy he’s talking shit about…

Kimbo is alright, but generally I don't like those kind of people. Typical black guy rapper attitude. From poordom to stardom. Using silly language and acting like it's all about the cash flow. Obviously he's improved but still I do not have confidence for him.

This clip is awesome! I remember first hearing about kimbo, some of those old school videos are crazy, I can't imagine showing up to a backyard braw and seeing that guy pull up. Its cool to see that he is finally getting some real money, I can't wait to see more of his fights! Keep'um coming!
