Joe Riggs on Kimbo Slice

Quote from mmaweekly.com

Quote:
Fight fans, take notice: In a small way, Joe Riggs helped create Kimbo Slice.

The year is 2003. Riggs is at least a year away from his UFC debut. He’s fighting for $1,000 a show, good money for him at the time. Slice’s manager, Icy Mike, puts out a challenge to tough guys around the country – come to Florida if you think you can beat up Kimbo Slice. Win, and you get $10,000.

Riggs’ manager at the time, Trevor Lally, jumps at the offer. He emails Mike and says he’s got someone for him. He offers to put up $50,000 of his own money as a show of faith.

Riggs begins training in earnest and mentally preparing for a fight with Slice. But when Mike finds out about Riggs’ credentials, the door is promptly closed.

“I’d of beat the (expletive) out of him,” Riggs told MMAWeekly.com. “It would have been done. No Kimbo. I would have rubbed him out and saved everyone the headaches.”
The legend of Kimbo Slice continues, more myth than man.

Yeah they only gave kimbo people that didn't have fight experience. I remember one fight i saw with kimbo against some fat guy in some gym and the guy was kneeing kimbo in the face and his posse came over and told him he could do that and started breaking the fight up.

Supposedly, that was what the underground community down here labled as his only like loss......they apparently agreed there would only be striking but as the fight went on the white guy started takin Kimbo down.....either way I dont think Joe Riggs could even take Kimbo.....

let me be clear i cannot stand kimbo and think he is a disgrace to this sport....but Joe riggs talkin shit........

It was supposed to be no ground work which is funny cus when gannon did take him to the ground hed stand back up willingly and when kimbo took him down he kept punching even though he was the one whod said no ground work.

Yeah they said no kicks and no fighting on the ground, Gannon kneed him and had him in a standing guillotine and Kimbos "posse" and some pimp looking fella jumped in.

Kimbo's hype will be his downfall...

...Kimbo's manager says Kimbo is the toughest guy in the world. He is offering anybody 10k to go to Miami and beat Kimbo. All this Kimbo hype is going to catch up with him. Slice has been doggin'Mixed Martial Arts fighters. All Kimbo has is 2 hands...that's it. 2 hands just aren't enough anymore. (i.e..just ask Chuck Liddell).
...Eventually Kimbo will have to face Antonio Silva for the Elite XC HW Title. Let's see just how tough Kimbo really is. He has no ground game. Antonio Silva has over 10years of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu on his resume. Kimbo would get owned by Silva and exposed like the rookie he is. Maybe once Kimbo gets choked to sleep, then maybe he'll have a little more respect for MMA fighters.

P.S. I would love to see Brock Lesner give Kimbo a Rampage style powerbomb KO slam...that would be hilarious!
