"A pack of wolves waited for Kevin “Kimbo Slice” Ferguson when he entered the flagship gym of American Top Team in Coconut Creek, Fla., on Thursday.

Position to position, hour to hour, Thiago Alves, Luis Cane, Mike Brown, Yves Edwards, Jorge Santiago, and Dan Cramer drilled Kimbo in jiu-jitsu. The hardened veterans didn't hold back. Boxing coach Howard Davis got a little time, but striking took a back seat to the mat."

Not to be a dick but, how is this news? It's just telling us that Kimbo worked bjj at att. It does not effect our picks or the mma world. It's normal for a guy to train jiu jitsu. The mma lounge is more of an appropriate place for this kind of article.

Why is Kimbo getting sooooo much media attention? Every time I come on here now there is something about Kimbo. Enough already. He's an average fighter with no ground game.

Thats pretty much all the articles coming up. I thought it just was an update on his training. He was previous said to be at Greg Jacksons so I thought it would be decent info.
Train BJJ may not be news for most fights but Kimbo, its a pretty huge deal.

I could gladly change it to
"Kimbo finds out he lost Nelson fight cause he lacks a skill called "Jui Jitzu." He has decided to learn more about this mysterious skill at ATT"

Damn the Kimbo stink is permeated into everything. I dont hate the guy but he's a c level fighter at best. Real up and comers deserve some of the limelite. Cane, Jones, Dos Santos. Sorry for the rant.

It is sad how they don't get as much attention.
Hell, a top prospect like Carwin gets a title fight and every news outlet is talking to Roy Nelson and Kimbo Slice. People like drama and usually the best fighters don't provide that since they are dedicated to their training only.

Cain Velasquez, Shawn Carwin, and Dos Santos will last far longer than Kimbo in the UFC not because of their age but because they are fully dedicated to training.
Especially Cain who still wants to hold off for any title shot as he thinks he needs more time to polish his game.

Why so much negativitiy? If anything im proud of Kimbo for now taking things seroulsy. I mean atleast now hes setting a good example that street fighters can do squat in MMA when push comes to shove, you must be skilled.

And I hope he stays at ATT and works hard their for the rest of his career because with Howard Davis's boxing, I think Kimbo would honestly no lied be one of the fierces strikers or atleast boxers in all of MMA. I'd be scared for anybody trying to go toe to toe with him. And you got great skilled BJJ blacks belts their all over the place that are going to put his body in the most awkwards positions haha their gonna [put every damn move on him so you atleast his submission defense can start improving and withsome high class wrestlers down their and guys with great sprawls, I think Kimbos gonna be a freakin beast next year if he sticks to it.

Randy is a legend and happens to be a real MMA fighter. Kimbo is a internet sensation, a backyard brawler who doesn't stand a chance against B level MMA fighters. It does get old
