    Star Kimbo Slice: The Pete Rose Of MMA?

    After much investigation, information relating to Kimbo Slice and his affiliation with EliteXC makes it clear that many of the fights were fixed.

    The levels of corruption involving EliteXC are many and deep.

    According to Seth Petruzelli, He was practically ordered to keep the fight standing. Even after the 14 second demolishment, he was quoted on Florida radio stations saying that some of the fighters received special instructions before their fights.

    Seth was told to keep it standing. Apparently they forgot to tell him not to punch either because it didn’t take long to expose the Internet curiosity.

    Kimbo’s fight with James Thompson was also a fix. James forgot about this and almost submitted Kimbo in the second round. In fact Kimbo CLEARLY taps out right in front of the referee who does nothing.

    The fight should have been over with Thompson as the victor but the management made sure a third round would happen. Thompson, ahead on points, winning the fight- is suddenly declared tko’d due to a busted ear. They knew if the fight went to the judges that Kimbo would lose. The whole affair has to make one question the integrity of the EliteXC Organization.

    Kimbo likes to gamble also- in fact Kimbo likes to bet on himself. Several Las Vegas Sport Books reported large wagers placed on Kimbo by members of his “entourage”. Betting on yourself when you know the fight is fixed?*

    Pete Rose has been dragged over hot coals by fans for decades now because of his gambling and other baseball violations.

    Are we now to accept Kimbo into TUF with open arms? Is there to be no recompense for the fighters that were used up and ruined by the EliteXC organization?

    Did not Dana White himself go on a tirade regarding the EliteXC organization and the corruption they brought to the sport of MMA.

    Now Dana is going to market Kimbo? What is wrong with this equation?

    If the fans of the MMA world were suddenly to discover that Brock Lesnar’s fight with Moo Su Kim was fixed how would UFC fans react?

    The UFC, The Fans of the UFC, The Fans of MMA, The Fans of a clean sport, and the UFC itself need to seriously consider the precedent that they are setting by allowing this man entry into the organization in any way, shape, or form.

    If MMA Fans reacted in similar fashion to baseball fans then Kimbo would be stripped of his professional record and placed on probation until a full investigation by the FSBC (Florida State Boxing Commission) can be completed.

    To this date there has been no conclusion to this investigation, and it seems strange that Kimbo would be allowed to compete while under investigation for fraud and fight fixing.

    Fans are welcome to contact the FSBC on their own to voice opinions, get information, and keep up to date on the progress of the investigation.

    Lies. Promises. Money. That’s what the promoters of EliteXC were about and nothing else. They make Dana White look like a humanitarian.

    There is not much else to do now except wait and see. Many fans might chose to email protests against this event.

    What do YOU think - Should Kimbo be allowed to fight in the UFC?

    the only miscontrued fact is that the Thompson fight was stopped due to a busted ear, otherwise it looks legit.

    They made it seem that petruzelli admitted the fight was worked. He actually hinted that they encouraged him to make it into a stand up fight. They also left out that petruxelli made several other statements that in no way was the fight a work.

    The author also states that the thompson fight was a work. That is his opinion and certainly not a fact.

    Pete rose is proven cheater and was suspended by mlb. Kimbo has had no penalties against him by any athletic commission or promotion. Its ridiculous to even compare the two.

    The florida department of business and professional regulation conducted an investigation and cleared all parties of any wrongdoing.

    Also its ridiculous when he says that kimbo clearly tapped. Not only wasn't it cleat but the refs and judges are assigned by the athletic commission not the promotion. If there was any wrongdoing by the ref the athletic commssion would have punished him as they do post fight evaluations.

    ok, I agree that they left out that Petruzelli stated it wasnt a work, but come on, with everything that occured, Petruzelli could have been working everyone as he did have that infamous radio interview, then he turns and changes and says its no work?

    The Thompson fight was such a joke that theres no way it wasnt a work. need I mention Bo Cantrell as well?

    clearance does not mean that hes clean, and if Petruzelli changed his story then no way do they find elite or kimbo guilty of any wrongdoing.

    Maybe the writer watched the fight from a different angle as I certainly didnt see a clear tap, but with everything else wrong in the Thompson fight, how could I argue? and come on, that ref was Dan Mirgilotta, that guy is a fool, if Thompson was that fucked up would he have pie faced him after the fight? also what about the thumbs up? since when does a thumbs up allow a fight to proceed especially when a fighter is not intelligently defending himself while caught in a crucifix, same situation occured in the Penn/Hughes fight, Penn not defending himself, taking blows(not heavy either) to the face so the fight was stopped, Penn was not messed up but per the rules the fight was stopped. maybe Florida has a different set of rules, but I doubt it.
