Would Brock Lesnar vs. Kimbo Slice be considered a superfight?

To us MMA fans whose been following the sport for years the answer would be No ******* Way! But I am beggining to understand the true power of marketing just from these two guys alone!

Brock Lesnar and Kimbo Slice are not elite level fighters. They are far from being considered that. But they Both have gained legions of fans outside of MMA threw various media. Kimbo did street fights on Youtube and Brock Lesnar was in the WWE. They brought these youtubers and WWE fanatics into the world of MMA just from there very names alone. Because of this Kimbo is the very face of Elite XC, overshadowing there newly crowned champion, even though he has not faced stiff comptition. Brock has become No.1 contender and he had only three fights. He superceded Nog, Mir (the man who recently beat him), and Werdum because he is much more marketable then those guys.

If these two were to meet inside the cage what would the pay-per-veiw sells be like? Would it outsell Fedor vs. Josh Barnett (which every MMA fan would consider to be a real superfight) if it were on the same night? Would it make lots of money for whatever organization (most likely the UFC) its in?

Brock by a mile.

Kimbo couldn't keep it standing and he's got no subs for Lesnar to worry about so Lesnar can really go to town with the GnP.

Murda215 has a little shameless behaviour in the pastMurda215 has a little shameless behaviour in the past
broc would humiliate kimbo so bad it would not even be funny. Kimbo has O ground game, broc"s ability to hold some one to the ground is prob the best the UFC has ever seen. Granted his JJ isnt good he can ride just about any one.People said his hands were trash till he crushed heath"s orbitial eye socket and sent him flying back about 7 feet. The Guy is a Pure Beast and he is gona thrash randy when they fight. A few more fights hes gona be the champ, he just needs to learn some BJJ and some submission defence.
