    Can you say INJURY... Kimbo is definitely coming back.

    All BS aside, Kimbo needs some ground coaches. I'm not sure what they were teaching him up to this point, (Bas, Tiki, Rampage, etc.) but he knows virtually nothing on the ground. He needs to get up to speed real quick like, or his career will be a thing of the past.
    Lets go Brent!

    Agreed.. Lock him up with the Team Quest wrestlers, and then lock him up with Maia for BJJ for about 18 months..

    Notice too that they didn't have fights to get into the house?

    That was something that was successful and needed more than ever with heavyweights (eliminated the gassers early)

    I'm sure that was just so Kimbo got to be in and stay in the house.

    I don't see any evidence that you do any critical thinking of any kind regarding JB's actions. They have completely hitched the wagon to Kimbo and it has paid off handsomely for them as it did for Elite before their demise. Criticism levied at Jazzy isn't about using Kimbo as a centerpiece of his flagship show--it's about his (even for him) over the top hypocrisy.

    I'm actually very happy for the UFC and Kimbo that they went this route.
    I heart Jazzy B. White.

    I gotta tell you, I was very, very disappointed in ESPN this past weekend. A 15-minute feature on SportsCenter about Kimbo Slice? That is embarrassing. It's so bad I can't even tell you. Then that show goes off.

    That guy he fought is a joke, and he went three rounds with Kimbo in a fight that shouldn't have been stopped. When the major media outlets would rather follow freak shows instead of real athletes, it's embarrassing.

    It just makes my life and job a whole lot harder. It's already been exposed. But getting that kind of coverage on ESPN, and BJ Penn doesn't? Everybody is so obsessed over who's going to take a chunk out of the UFC that those guys will get this kind of press coverage for no reason whatsoever.

    I think the show that happened on CBS the other day was a complete embarrassment for CBS and for the sport of mixed-martial arts. Urijah Faber is 145 pounds. He'll beat Kimbo Slice. Kimbo Slice sucks. He's terrible. If I had a heavyweight The Ultimate Fighter show, I don't think he'd win the show. And he's headlining a show on CBS?

    "I've never changed my tune about Kimbo —
    I always said the only way he would get into the UFC is if he wins a season of The Ultimate Fighter."

    "He has the same TUF deal but if he makes it into the UFC, his contract is different. A LOT f***ing different.
