The dude who just TKO’d Kimbo Slice. He caught Kimbo with a short shot to the jaw that dropped him and then finished Kimbo off with a number of punches to the side of the noggin.
This is pretty bad fucking news for EliteXC and Kimbo … he just got taken out by a light heavyweight, and a mediocre one at that. He was dropped by a short pop to the face. It was right at the beginning of the fight. Kimbo didn’t even get one shot off. Fuck. I honestly can’t think of a single way that this fight could have gone more wrong. At least Ken Shamrock has a name and a legacy that can soften a loss. But Kimbo Slice just got Buzz Berry’d. The mystique is officially toast. That sound you’re hearing? That’s the sound of everyone getting off Kimbo’s bandwagon.
That may not be the worst thing in the world for Kimbo. Perhaps now he’ll be able to train hard and build himself up without the heavy mantle that EliteXC had dumped on him. Or maybe not: I expect EliteXC to continue pimping Slice like tonight didn’t happen. And I think we might end up having to sit through a few more months of Kimbo vs Ken hype-up.
