Ric Flair said:ANyone on here think they can take on Kimbo SLice??? Regardless of what art you practice?
In particular, any average size/height or smaller statured individual feel they can take on Kimbo Slice one on one???
MJS said:He is a big man, who obviously loves to fight. I know that he offers a challenge in which a set amount of money is put up and you get to fight. Personally, I'll pass on that challenge. If however, I was in a situation with someone like that, getting the hell out of there would be my first choice. If that was not an option, I'm certainly not going to stand there and trade punches with him. Using something as a weapon and/or choosing targets such as the eyes, legs, etc. would be my next choice.
Ric Flair said:Exactly, there is no such thing as "cheating" with individuals like Kimbo Slice lol.
How can you fight "fair" with a guy like him? Not only can he fight, he knows how to fight well. Plus he has a size advantage. Me as an average size guy would never conform to such "rules" his team expects. Hell i would not be a standing duck for him.
hee hee, i would not volunteer to get into that situation for the sake of it though. If my life depends on it, i would not play fair with Kimbo lol.
Simon Curran said:Pretty much what I was thinking too, I'm a pretty big guy, and wouldn't be giving away so much in that respect, but I wouldn't want to play his game by his rules...
upnorthkyosa said:Here is an interesting question...would a small man or a woman be justified in using a weapon in order to defend oneself from an empty hand assault by a person like Kimbo Slice? Would any person be justified?
Odin said:With underground fights the rules are usally set up before the fight,they could range from anything from official boxing rules to anything goes (and i mean anything forget pride im talking headbutts kicks to groin the buiness),if you see in that link I posted Kimbo's promotor tries to stop the fight when kimbo is getting choked,proberly because it was supposed to only be a bareknuckle boxing match........forget kimbo though you need to check out the gypsy fighters of the 70-80's they were legends real bare knuckle fighters,they were brutal in the ring,field snooker hall where ever the fight was being held.
I remember one gypsy fighting technique was to headbutt an on coming punch with the top of the head thus either breaking the hand or causing alot of pain (no gloves you see) thats some hardcore stuff.......but yeah your right throw royce Gracie at them and they'd all be tapping first round....I doubt even mike tyson could knock them out though!here Ive posted this before but check this out,its lenny mclean my fav unlienced boxer vs mad gypsy bradshaw...
this fight in infamous...very short though,Lenny's the big guy the other guy is a gypsy fighter who has never lost a fight in over 3000 fights......he heard bradshaws rep so decided to throw a cheeky headbut in to soften him up before the fight started......it didnt really work!

I met Lenny Mclaine years ago before he died when he was a nightclub bouncer in London. Now he was a scary man...
Odin said:Yeah he used to run the door to the hippodrome night club in London,when you read his book he sounds like a real nice guy...thats cool you got to meet him.
