Today was Dana White's turn to fire another salvo at a rival promotion, this time EliteXC. The comments were made with regards to what he thought were KeviN "Kimbo Slice" Ferguson's chances in UFC.

Bring him to the UFC and have him and Lesnar go at it......I think that would be very entertaining.......I am suprised that Dana hasnt tried to get Kimbo just because he is populare and will fill the seats, but Dana is always bagging on any fighter that doesnt fight for him......

I got no love for Kimbo, his fight vs Tank Abbot.. well that will only be a surprise if Tank actually wins for once... as for his first fight.. well i don't know what the hell that was, Kimbo barely knicks that guy with one punch and he is on the ground taping out... im going to go with fixed.. or rigged what ever you prefer
As for his chances in the UFC i would say it would enjoyable to see him and Lesnar go at it, but i don't see Kimbo doing very well here. Maybe in the future when he is more of an mma fighter and less of a hobo

BAM! hit it banana!

I didn't read the full article but I agree. The guys that Kimbo beat have no credentials as fighers and the fights took place in some dude's backyard. Kimbo is just a tough brawler which can only go so far in MMA. If he continues to train with Bas and get's experience he could become a threat but right now he would get tossed worse than David Heath.

Since that's how you feel, then feel free to state your case for Kimbo. Tell us all about his skills.

so your saying that dana should promote other mma fighters that are in orgs competing against his?? i dont really like him bashing some of the good proven fighters (fedor,barnett, hell even tito) but why would he say that other orgs have better guys then he does? he is atop the mma world. that would be stupid businessman but not crybaby businessman. if they keep around guys like big c robinson then i think he would take that guy. hardonk would be an exciting fight for kimbo. but he is still raw for mma and looks behind lesnar imo

I dont really care too much about Kimbo, but I do love a good KO...so I say they keep him where he is so that he can continue to destroy the cans. I think he would get owned in the UFC as soon as he stepped up to the elite fighters in his div!!

Kimbo probably would get killed in the UFC,but Kimbo is a guy with a 1-0 record.Why is Dana even talking about him and adding fuel to the fire?
That gives Kimbo a lot of recognition if the president of the number one MMA promotion is even saying his name.It will look worse if Kimbo ever beats any former UFC fighters over in elite XC.

The link just provided the quote,so i'm betting someone just shot the question at him and he gave his honest opinon.Or at least I hope so.

Well, Dana was answering to a reporter man, and we know now that the president of Elite/xc is saying that his fighters and Kimbo can beat any fighters in the UFC !! lol

The reporter probably asked him to comment on that and he told what we all know that Kimbo will get kill in the UFC !!

I think Sanchez and Harnonk can beat him badly !! so just imagine the others who are top ten !!

true i bet you'll never hear dana bring him up. it's always in respone to a interviewer. i'd get pissed too if i was running the number one org in the game and i was constantly asked about a unproven internet fad. trust me. if kimbo puts some wins together against some quality fighters. he'll get dana's eye. untill then. he belongs in the lower tier orgs. imo

"Hurt Bad"

Geez i thought nobody got hurt bad in the UFC, what about the commissions and referees, wouldnt they stop the fight if he got beat but before he got hurt bad?

Im seriously getting bored of Dana making these comments, is he really that scared of Pro Elite taking business of him?

I agree.But then when I was reading an issue of Ultimate grappling Dana brought him up fighting Quinton Jackson.He said it as a joke,but still.
