In what has to be the biggest news to hit MMA since Ken Shamrock and James Toney almost fought, backyard brawler Dada 5000 says he’s going to take on youtube sensation Kimbo Slice in the cage:
Florida-based street fighter DADA 5000 went on the Rodolfo Roman show yesterday to announce that he would be fighting for the WFO heavyweight championship of the world. Additionally, on January 12 he will be fighting Kimbo Slice in an MMA match on pay-per-view at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, or possibly at Universal Studios in Florida (venue is still to be locked down). DADA learned towards Universal Studios since he said “they would give a bigger purse.” Why is this match so big? For the Florida fighting community, both fighters are hometown heroes who rose up from obscurity to top-dollar fighting careers. Bragging rights will be on the line, but more importantly, so will a lot of money.
As far as internet meme fights go, this is up there with Nyan Cat taking on Rick Astley.
