Tank Abbott = Old and Busted
Kimbo Slice = New Hotness
OMG, I can't believe I just talked like that. But honestly, Kimbo's the new street fighter, Tank used to be. Tank is just too damn old, and he needs to give it up.
Is Bas still training Kimbo? Bas knows his chit and given Kimbos physical talents already I can totally see him doing some damage. I just wonder if he's a little old to be starting this kind of training though.
Watched that last night, too. Tank is 42 and out of shape. I'm not sure he's ever really been in shape. If this was Tank back when he started in UFC against Kimbo, it would've been a better fight. He looked like he couldn't defend himself. I'd like to see Kimbo get into the UFC and get a fight with Brock Lesnar.
No. He will only be fighting for the smaller shows. UFC is only in the business of hiring athletes at this time and point.
BTW, The UFC fired Mirko Cro Cop last week. He had 3 fights left on his contract at $250,000 + 250,000 win bonus for each of those fights. However due to his lack luster record in the octagon he was a liability and a fiscal loss to Zuffa.
That said, UFC firing the likes of Cro Cop should show anyone what kind of point they are trying to make. Cro Cop could kill Kimbo with both arms tied behind his back. Kimbo is simply a brawler that attracts the other brawler types to cards. I dont think he will ever be in the top 5 or even top 10 fighters in the world.
On another note, come to think of it I dont think Kimbo could really even beat the shittiest fighters in the UFC HW division. I am pretty sure Herring, Sylvia, Nog, Monson, Kongo, Gonzaga, Mir, Arlovski, could all take Kimbo.
I still think lesnar got the shit end of the stick on his fight. If the ref wouldnt have called a time out for one shot to the back of the head. mir would have been TKOd period.
as for kimbo, hes a bitch i cant stand that guy. I hope he gets all of his limbs broke with the first mma fighter he gets in the ring with. it is one thing to be a brawler and another to be a master of an art.
