Kimbo Slice has been making the media rounds promoting TUF 10. Video interview with Fanhouse above and Fox Fight Game after the jump. Also, here’s a few highlights from interviews with Spike TV and Cage Potato including confirmation that Kimbo will fight on the TUF 10 Finale (this does not necessarily mean as a finalist).
SP: What do you make of all the attention the show has been getting?
Kimbo: It’s heavyweights, man. It’s bigger than boxing and that’s what it mainly is. I don’t want to say that I’m bringin all this attention; it’s the heavyweights. People love to watch big dudes just bangin, you know, sluggin it out. I don’t think people wanna see big guys rolling around and wrestling and punching each other on the floor. The ground game is great but that aint really my thing. If I get a guy down, I’m gonna signal him to get back up and finish the fight. I don’t want to get on the ground and have people rubbin up on me. Nah, I don’t want that.
But your training benefitted.
Oh yeah, I learned a hell of a lot more in that short period of time than I did with Bas (Rutten) in a whole year. [Ed. note: Burn, the war of words with Bas continues]
I assume you’ll be fighting in the finale.
Yes, in December.
How are you preparing for your fight?
How do you prepare for a fight? Training, man, training. Smoking a lot of weed and having a lot of sex.
Last thing, it’s been a while you’ve been doing this on a professional level. We’re all a little older and wiser. Kimbo, is tapping out still for bitches?
Tapping out is still for bitches.
