After Kimbo Slice defeated James Thompson in the first mixed martial arts show in prime time network television history, fellow heavyweight Brett Rogers took the podium at the post-fight press conference and called Slice's performance "garbage" and "unacceptable."

If that was Rogers' attempt to hype himself up as the next opponent for Kimbo, it worked. Slice appeared on Dan Le Batard's radio show today and said he'll fight Rogers next, "probably in October."

"They called me out, and now they got the fight," Slice said of Rogers and his camp.

Slice acknowledged that his aura took a bit of a hit with the way he struggled to defeat Thompson, but he insisted, "I was in shape. I was ready. I was ready for a battle."

Rogers is the overall better fighter of the 2, but I think Kimbo has the power to KO just about anyone if he lands...and he seems to have a good chin to.

so I dont know how to predict this one yet...it will be a war though.

I hope Rogers beats him. I don't think Kimbo will be the face of EliteXC for much longer. People will figure it out eventually.

Well TANK! And ok he is a fat washed up brawler but he could always take a punch and had never really been dropped like that before. Its clear Kimbo does have power in his punches but Brett packs just as much imo

October is a long wait for this isnt it?

Tank is way past his Prime. In his Prime he had a good chin. But not now. Buentell KOed him recently too an he was hurt by Yoshida. His speed is gne and he takes all punches flush and a bunch of them.

Roger is a better fighter than Kimbo but i question his chin. Murphy seemed to have hurt him with the first punch he landed. If Rgers stands he will be to slow to match punch for punch and wont have the chin to take a bunch of shots. He needs to take it to the ground.

Agreed.

I think Kimbo's striking power and fortitude are legit. His striking technique is suspect, and his grappling is simply non-existent. James Thompson is a brawler who had a hard time brawling with Kimbo. On the other hand, Thompson is a brawler who owned Kimbo on the mat. I was practically screaming at Thompson (from my couch) for his poor wrestling, and he still had Kimbo in quicksand.

Watch that Tank fight again and tell me that was a KO. Tank is on his feet in 10 seconds. Kimbo Power=myth

I just want someone to destroy kimbo.. not just beat him.. but destroy him... I am tired of the hype.. I have watched his youtube videos and such.. and I was bored.. nothing exciting.. he fought a bunch of guys with no skill... That would be like me going to a local jr high and beating up the kids there...

My question is how are they going to rig this fight so kimbo can win... first time Kimbo hits rogers is the ref going to stop it? Are the judges going to give Rogers points to kimbo? are they going to give Rogers direction to the wrong place so kimbo wins by forefit and they are going to take an old man from the stnds to fight kimbo and call it a legit fight? Persoanly give me 8 months to train and I can take kimbo... I already can see I am faster and a bilion times better on the ground.. ... I hope rogers stomps him into a mud hole... though if kimbo somehow wins this one what do they do with him next... put him in with Silva? thier golden boy will end up in the hospital most likely....

I hope Kimbo gets his ground game in check and Kimbo got thunder in his hands and not a good thing to tick him off

Rodgers is smart as hell. Totally insults Kimbo, now he gets a fight with him because he hurt Kimbo's pride. The only things Rodgers has to worry about are: (1) A quick stoppage if Kimbo starts any sort of momentum (very possible) and (2) The judges (there's about a 1% chance the fight goes the distance anyway, but just in case).
