Dear Dana,

Please don't cut Kimbo yet. He just threw his first high kick! I mean c'mon, the man is trying and he's growing. Will he ever be a contender? No. Is he fun to watch? Yes! Every fun fight doesn't have to have title implications. His pure strength slams are as fun to watch as Rampage's ever were. Did you hear that crowd? People love him. He definitely brings more eyes to your show. He got his ass kicked last night but he had plenty of legitimate chances to tap and didn't. There are still fun fights in the ufc for him (TONEY TONEY TONEY).

And what a slap in the face to Matt Mitrione. That guy showed real skills and technique as well as a comfort level in the octagon that no sane man could possess with his experience level. Now you would tell the world if you can't even beat Matt you suck? Please reconsider. Tell Kimbo to change his name to Kevin Ferguson Kick Toney in the head if he wants to keep his job.

Thanks for another great show

Not sure why they're cutting him so fast. Sure he was a brawler, but he is entertaining. Possibily because of his rate, but I'm sure he draws. Anybody know the payouts of the fighters, live gates, and ppvs.

I never gave KIMBO a chance before going into the house, but the guy has earned my respect.
He aint run from no one, ok he isn't ever going to hold a title, but look how much he's improved since the internet days, if only everyone had his commitment, the guys a tryer give him one more fight at least, he improves every fight in terms of skill, even in his losses, and 90% of guys might have tapped in those triangles.

I agree that he is never going to be a contender, and Dana knows it. There's no way that they are cutting such a rating monster that is Kimbo Slice.

I dont understand why Kimbo got cut, There have been a lot of "average" fighters in the UFC who have stuck around for a longer period of time. Dana should in fact sit down with Kimbo and really tell him that he doesnt have a future in the HW division, that if he cuts down to LHW, he might have a better chance to stay a gatekeeper because of the size advantage he would have against some opponents.

...Getting dominated and finished by Mitrione is a clear sign that Kimbo's days are numbered. I was impressed with how well Matt mixed it up. He looked almost too relaxed. Crazy. Maybe Dana can send Kimbo to the WEC. He would have a better chance at winning. With the UFC HW division getting stacked like pancakes, Kimbo is still looking in from the outside from even a further distance now. His hopes of getting a title shot are slimmer than a runway model...
