as a long time MMA fan i guess im suppose to hate kimbo slice but i really dont as all. Like most ppl i was expecting another Tank Abbot but i was pleasantly suprised by seeing kimbo not afraid to go to the ground and was able to show himself as being more well-rounded than most expected. Really Kimbo's problem was that EliteXC simply placed him to high of a pedalstal to early.

in short if u look at Kimbo's history, 3-1 against much more expienced fighters i might add, I believe TUF is right where Kimbo deserves to be. Is he an undiserving favorite? probably, but that doesnt mean he wont win. Yes it seems UFC is trying to pull in more ratings on this one, but im not going to hate of kimbo for taking advantage of the situation.

i agree, he realizes this is his chance to improve his skills and he had admitted in the past that hes not the best its just his nutthuggers i.e MMA noobs who made him into a god. im curious to see him against roy nelson

I'd have paid money to see him fight Brett Rogers.
