It feels like I can't go more than two days without arguing with someone over Kimbo Slice's value in MMA. Whether it's with a diehard fan, a blogger or a casual sports fan, it always seems like someone wants to talk Kimbo and, more specifically, dismiss his importance to the sport.
Well, hopefully all that talk can officially end today because ESPN.com released it's most searched items for the month of June. "(NCAA) College baseball" and the "College World Series" topped the list followed by "TitleTown" (a new SportsCenter feature), "Euro 2008"...blah, blah, blah.
Oh, look there's our old friend Kimbo sitting pretty at #11. You've heard of him, right? He's the guy who's defecating on the purity of the sport.

Brittany Spears, Backstreet Boys and N-Sync are were like Kimbo, they didn't have longevity and Kimbo won't either, unless Shaw keeps feeding him easy fights. After this fight with Rogers giive him Sergi, so Kimbo can be retired

"Stop worrying about if he can apply a proper kimura or not; that's really not the point. Shaquille O'Neal can't shoot like Ray Allen and, in turn, Allen can't post up like O'Neal. In other words, there are different ways to win in sports. As long as Kimbo continues to win, he deserves all the accolades he is receiving."
This is a terrible argument/comparision. Shaquille O'neal may not be a distance shooter, but he still posts up and competes against REAL TALENT. You can start making arguments like this when Kimbo beats a real fighter (without having the ref. give him the fight on a silver platter).
