Gary Goodridge appeared on Fight Network Radio and had some unpleasant things to say about Kimbo Slice and also indicated that he would be more than willing to fight Kimbo:

“‘Kimbo Slice’ is a 2008 version of ‘Mr. T,’” Goodridge told Fight Network Radio. “Was ‘Mr. T’ tough back then? No. Could he beat anybody back then? No, but he had the words, he had the lyrics, and he had the gold.”

“Don’t come out telling people that you’re ‘Street Certified,’ that you can walk on the streets and punch out anybody, any man … you’re not afraid of nobody,” Goodridge said. “Man, I know people that will put him down and spank his ass.”

Goodridge would could at least test his gas tank for more than 35 seconds. Also maybe test his from leg vs. kicks. Tons of experience in mma and k1. Then again, i picked sapp this weekend.

LOL as always, except that he would have to win to get that result, if not its the end of his career!

Im not surprised by these comments and expect more from other fighters, you kinda cant blame them for feeling a bit done over, instead of training to the extent they have they could have just done a bit then had some illegal fights then trained more whilst they rake in the cashish

I'd watch it. At least he'd put a real test to Kimbo's striking.

Why would you ever want Kimbo to lose. Of course there are guys that can kill him, but he is one of the most entertaining pre-fight hype fighters. Obey Kimbo

To be fair about it, the fight with Gannon was supposed to be a boxing match. He threw knees and tried for takedowns when the rules were punches...when a man goes down he has 60 sec. to answer the bell. Granted, Gannon may have "come out on top" but both looked tired and beat. And Kimbo stayed within the set parameters of the fight. If Lennox Lewis knees Holyfield in the face to ko him, he didn't really win a boxing match.

That being said, let's get those two together now in a match that has a ref to keep it within the rules. It may have the same results, but now that Kimbo is training the takedowns, knees and elbows, I doubt it.

Kimbo's striking what needs to be tested. Its his ground game.

I dont know why everyone wants kimbo to lose. I just want him to fight someone who isnt a can. If he beats some legitimate fighters, good for him. If he doesnt, well than he wasnt worth the hype. I just want to see him actually challenged.
