Faber: BJ Has 90% Chance of Beating Kimbo

http://www.bloodyelbow.com/2008/8/28...-bj-penn-has-9



On the Big O & Dukes show on 106.7 WJFK today, WEC Featherweight Champion Urijah Faber was asked about BJ Penn's chances of defeating Kimbo Slice in a fight. Faber replied that Penn had a "90% chance" of defeating the EliteXC heavyweight, although one speculates Faber really feels the chances are much higher.



The Penn vs. Slice "fantasy match-up" is the product of UFC President Dana White's comment just prior to EliteXC's debut on CBS. White remarked that BJ Penn could defeat Slice in a MMA bout. The effort of White was to disparage Slice's talent level by suggesting a lightweight fighter in the UFC could defeat a heavyweight fighter in EliteXC (or at least Slice). Faber's corroboration merely adds fuel to the fire.



As for a potential bout with Norifumi Yamamoto, it's the same story: Faber wants it; there are no plans in the works to make it happen.

I'd give it more of a 99% chance of BJ beating down kimbo.Which is sad, considering BJ is 155 and would bulk to maybe 170 or 190 for this fight, while kimbo weighs like 250

It's not hard to make the connection. Like lets say an EliteXC LW like Eddie Alvarez could beat a UFC HW like Shane Carwin.

Wow this is a fun game.

Kimbo is like 235 or roughly the same size as Frank Mir I dont know where this myth of Kimbo being a large Hw comes from he is average size at best.

ya enough kimbo talk already,
even after he got totally bashed by liddell and Dana,
the guy still had nothing but good things to say about them both. He even said "i love those guys", he may be trying hard to be nice but at least he isnt being a total douche, I dont think he is worth any of his hype but the guy gets shitted on hard just for being heavily promoted.
There isnt a fighter out there that dosnt want to be promoted they way he is.

Actually Kimbo's comments were that he was gonna go to Lidells gym and "shut him up" which is absurd, Kimbo deserves all the shit that gets talked about him, you cant call out fighters like Lidell and then go fight an 86 year old Ken Shamrock, I mean f*** Ken hasnt been the Worlds most dangerous man in years his new nickname should be "The Worlds Most Fragile Man"

oh i didnt read that statment, that changes everything, he should have just turned down the shamrock fight if he really wants to fight top competition. Ken shamrock is probly the definition of a can right now.

Who the hell cares. So much kimbo hate, I dont like him but I cant beleive he gets so much attention. The UFC built up roger huerta in a similar way and you dont see people hating on roger huerta this much. Its freaking riddiculous. I still hope ken smashes him though.
