twitter google MMA Fight Weekly: Kimbo Down And Out

Mike Chiappetta makes the case that Kimbo Slice hasn’t lost his drawing power as the result of his first loss. Now that I’ve had a little time to get over the natural reaction that Kimbo is worthless and done, I think his drawing power has taken a hit, but not to the extent as most people are saying. I won’t go as far as to agree with Chiappetta, but I think if EliteXC puts him back in the main event on CBS he would draw ratings somewhere between “Unfinished Business” and “Heat.” However, hopefully, EliteXC and CBS will come up with a new strategy such as putting headlining worthy fighters in the main event. I don’t care if Kimbo makes it on another televised card, but the headliner charade needs to be over.
