A few hours after Dana White saw pro wrestling sensation Brock Lesnar fall in a promising display against Frank Mir, White couldn’t resist taking a shot at rival EliteXC’s version of Lesnar, internet sensation Kimbo Slice. Like Lesnar, Slice made a name for himself outside of the octagon and has a palpalble amount of hype of potential that has yet to be completely realized.
White did not mince words in his assessment of Slice.
“Sean Gannon beat him in a street fight,” said White. “Everyone saw happened to Sean Gannon when he fought a guy that no one ever heard of. Gannon was in the hospital for three weeks. That’s what would happen to Kimbo Slice if he fought in the UFC. He would get hurt bad – real bad.”
Kimbo Slice is set to take on Tank Abbott for the main event of EliteXC’s next show which will take place at 10pm EST on Saturday, February 16 in Miami, Florida. You can catch the show live on Showtime.
