The Evolution Of A Fighter; Part One



Today we take a look at an underground legend in his own time; Kimbo Slice. I normally don't post about UFC-type fighters, because I consider it "fightsport" and not "Martial Arts". But many of us have witnessed Kimbo (real name Kevin Furguson) smack the crap out of countless challengers in outlaw money fights on YouTube. The guy is big, scarey and extremely powerful. His challengers left the fight scene with serious injuries, but there was always an air of competitive sportsmanship about the way these fights were conducted. Until recently, Kimbo has been an undiciplined brawler. Now however, he has been trained by Bass Rutten and has won his first UFC-type fight. Here is part one of a well-produced ESPN documentary on Kimbo, part two to follow...
