This is totally exactly what I've always thought of Kimbo, as far as the Gannon thing goes I heard he mased him or something like that so not sure if that's legitimate. Look, Slice has potential to be good because he has amazing physical talents and good boxing, but so far he's fought a walking knock-out and a washed up old man. Put him against Antonio Silva and he will lose in the first round.

He's 100% correct.

Put him in there against a decent fighter and Kimbo would become Kimbowned.

that's hilarious, but so true. if kimbo beats some formidable opponents i will gain some respect for him. as for right now, i look at him as a street fighter.

Yeah he can't be taken seriously until he faces someone legit. He has been way over hyped, but he has potential. He kinda reminds me of Houston Alexander, only with less experience. You have to admit, the man has sic power, and can take a punch.... but he needs a real test sometime soon, or I'm going to lose interest

but elitexc is just going to hype up kimbo for like 5 or 6 fights, that prolly all end in the first round by ko. then top contenders are going to call out kimbo and he can either accept or back out like a bitch.
And then he will be exposed, maybe even go to the the second or third round.

If/when Kimbo faces a real Mixed Martial Artist he has a real good chance to win. That chance is if said Artist has so much pride that they stand with Kimbo instead of using their ground game.
If Frank Shamrock can take Cung Le down in their rematch than we can coin a new phrase.

Cunrocked- When a fighter chooses to engage an opponent in one type of fighting (stand up) when said fighter has an advantage in another type (grappling).

Chael Sonnen got Cunrocked when he decided to stop boxing Filho and engage in a little ground and pound.

My problem with a lot of people's opinion of Kimbo is that i think he has potential. You really cant count a guy out who has just been thrown cans. It doesnt mean he cant fight real fighters. That being said he shouldnt be hyped as big as he is and no one should be making claims about how he is top 10.

It just bothers me when people say he would get killed by actual fighters because no one really knows how he is going to do against real competition.

There are rumors that EliteXC are going to throw him James Thompson which should be a good fight. He may be on a bit of a losing streak but hes a great fighter with all the skills he needs to win.

dude i say chuck should put his money where his mouth is...

"I could make some impressive knockout videos too if you let me walk outside and just punch people and knock them out – "hey you, come fight!" "F*** we can make a highlight reel tomorrow and go round beating people up and talking about it – we could just go up to people and start dropping them – wow!"

Anyone who is on the kimbo slice band wagon should read this and take note !! Kimbo is no test, kimbo is no mma fighter and never will be. He's a street fighter who like chuck said has a reputation for ko'ing guys like Afro puff !! I myself could take a camcorder into town and film someone ko 3 guys in one night, that dont mean that person has to potential to be a world champ in mma. Just like chuck said, gannon beat slice, bareknuckle too, gannon didnt even make a name in the ufc, so kimbo wont even get there !!!

I agree with half of the interview. I agree that he is being overhyped, but to me it's by no fault of his own.
He's a victim of publicity, and most likely he's never going to live up to it, despite how hard he's training and how much praise he gets from Bas Rutten.
