Gary Shaw: The UFC Made Huge Mistake Cutting Kimbo Slice

This brief interview with Gary Shaw makes me laugh. The UFC made a huge mistake cutting Kimbo Slice. They matched him up wrong, and should have built towards a pay-per-view with James Toney (Kimbo reportedly turned down a Toney fight btw). So says the man who ran a promotion into the ground with Kimbo Slice as his star attraction.

I don’t think cutting Kimbo was a mistake, nor do I think keeping him would have been either, but hearing it like this from Gary Shaw is pretty amusing.
