Scott Coker talks to Steve Cofield of Cagewriter about Herschel Walker, Kim Couture and passing on Kimbo Slice.
Herschel Walker hasn’t made his debut yet, so it’s easy to say skill-wise he’s worthy of fighting on such a big stage, but how they can justify keeping Kim Couture on board is beyond me.
As far as Kimbo goes, I think Coker made the right call in not signing him. The UFC had the perfect vehicle and gameplan to reinvent Kimbo’s image. That’s just not something Strikeforce could have accomplished with 10 and 30-second promos, and eventually I think it would have backfired on them like it did with EliteXC.
