Default Re: Kimbo Slice wins 1st MMA fight

Mercer has no experience in MMA style fighting so I wasn't surprised Kimbo won..I would of like to see what would of happened if it was a boxing match..

Kimbo next fight will be against an MMA fighter should be interesting..

Kimbo had no experience in MMA either.....

Kimbo doesn't want any part of a boxing match with Mercer.

So why the comparison of boxing to MMA? Shyt was dumb...but you still seem bitter over the treatment of MMA by boxing fans/fighters.

Let it go.

You obviously didn't read my post. Did you?

Go back and read it.

Better yet, I'll post it for you.

This is an interesting paradox.

Kimbo beat Ray Mercer, a former pro boxer. Ties into the MMA vs. boxing argument.

On the other hand, Kimbo is a former street fighter/brawler. Ties into boxing's argument against MMA.

I call push here.
Where is there bitterness?

All I'm pointing out is that there was an MMA match between two non-MMA fighters and the boxer lost. You expect people to not talk about an MMA match involving a former boxing champion with all the press about the matter?

You seem more better than I do, my friend.

Boxer? Ray Mercer hasnt fought in over 2yrs. He's 46yrs old. Jesus Christ if you cant see that then wipe the load of jizz from your eyes. To call Ray Mercer a boxer as if he represents the sport anymore is hilarious. There have been boxers who are more successful in MMA. You damn sure never called them out or are they all undefeated?

You call push? I call irrelevant mumbo jumbo. Stfu kid...seriously. Call me when a boxer that even when they were still active was so far past thier prime its funny actually enters MMA and fights. You naming some has been, washed up boxer who only fought years ago as a means of income as some sort of meaning is retarded. Media will talk about this because he is a former boxing champion? How far ago was that??? Hilarious. Kimbo slize is atleast 15yrs younger. But that matters none? Ray could be 85% of the boards FATHER!

Hello? I pretty said that this means nothing.....

Anyway I'm gonna give MMA a try. So how should I go about doing that?
Go to Sherdog.com or MMA.tv and check the forums. See what fighters are talked about the most. See if you can find some fights on Youtube or Dailymotion. Do some Googling. That's about all I can suggest.

what is wrong with these professional fighters? I saw a commercial one guy said "there's nothing more beautiful than knocking a guy out with a smash to the chin and seeing him wake up with blood all over his face and being in shock"

what a demented guy

Here comes fatboy with his MMA > boxing vendetta again.

In more important news: Hatton beat down Castillo last night. Calling out Mayweather now, saying his fight last night was more exciting than all of Mayweather's fights in his career combined. Good stuff.

Show me where I made this a boxing vs MMA thing.

Go ahead, show me.

Neither one is an MMA practitioner. I know that Kimbo has a huge underground following and thought that maybe some people here would want to know that he has gone pro. It's only natural to mention his opponent and his credentials. I've already made a post declaring that this isn't an MMA > boxing thread.

How many times do I have to explain that?

They put 33 up on that graphic, but they said he was 31. I've heard/read 31 as well.

I've also read that he never actually went to prison.

**** Kimbo Slice. The guy belongs in backyard brawls, not a sport in it's infancy that's fighting to gain mainstream acceptance.

Between Kimbo Slice and Brock Lesnar, it's getting harder to take some organizations seriously.
