Default I'm tired of idiots who know nothing about MMA talking about how great Kimbo Slice is

Honestly, he has no ground skills whatsoever. If he fought any REAL MMA fighters he'd just be adding losses to his record. It's great that he's bringing new fans to MMA, but people who have been watching it for years know he's nothing special. Even if he had fought Shamrock and won, that doesn't really mean a lot because even though Shamrock was a pioneer to the sport, he's old now and has lost 8 of his last 10 fights.

I watch a bit of MMA, and while I like him and his awesome beard, I realize he is terrible and just a street fighter.

Yeah, I don't actually have a problem with the guy himself, but the way his "fans" think he is the greatest fighter in the world.

I don't watch MMA as much as I'd like to.

I'd like to think I'm tougher than all these guys, but I'm probably not even close.

You cant be an amazing fighter if you get knocked out by a nobody in 14 seconds.

1) You're an MMA fan as well eh?
2) Even though I can't watch the video because I'm capped, I can already tell that he's a shitbrick because his main style of fighting is boxing.

In my opinion, the greatest MMA fighter there ever was is Rickson Gracie.

Well, I box, but I don't see that as a very good advantage compared to most MMA fighters. I only say this cause if you cover up as a boxer, you always have some part of your body open for attack. I'm suggesting that:

1). Yeah, he can probably street fight, but if he went up against any of the real fighters like Cro Crop he'd get raped just as easy.
2). Maybe if he used kick boxing as well, he'd be a better fighter all-around.

But Kimbo Slice is a big name. He may just be a street fighter, but he has his wins.

Kimbo is slow. Sparring is his thing, but the ufc isn't a street fighting league.

Yeah...I'm kind of tired how there's all these Kimbo fans out there who totally thinks he's the shit and he can go on to MMA to become the champion of everybody. Honestly, as far his fights have gone most of them are at most a 'joke'. Especially that one fight where he practically got knocked out in less than half a minute into the fight.
