Dana White Talks About Kimbo Slice and TUF 10

Comments

  1. Dana Has some great Points..

    I dont think Kimbo fights to make it on the show, i think someone got hurt and they let Kimbo take his Sport..

  2. other derek says:

    the 16 heavyweights are already in the house. As for Dana saying i don't think i've talked more smack about anyone then kimbo…………….how about fedor!!!!!!!!!!!!!! and sign the fucking goon!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  3. Cobra Clutch says:

    Please don't turn yet another post into Fedor vs. the UFC. Let's keep at least this one to TUF 10. haha

  4. Nichole Lesniak says:

    tom – From what I've read, yeah, the guys are automatically in the house. I'm betting they had a hard time getting even 16 HW's so they had no choice.

  5. thedude says:

    is this really a good idea for the ufc. i read on yahoo.com that kimbo is under investigation for all the fight fixing in elitexc and for him betting on his own fixed fights. im sure he wouldnt make it through the show but still. i understand its more for ratings and im definitely watching so i guess it works, but i was more interested in seeing the coaches go at it before i heard this kimbo crap.

  6. dane drebin says:

    and what exactly did u base that off of tom? someone got hurt so they gave kimbo his spot? ya right man kimbos gunna double their ratings. they would toss off anyone to put kimbo on there. Kimbo is a huge draw and he has signed up to fight for the ufc on T.V. for free think it through brainiac.

  7. Nichole Lesniak says:

    dane – he's not fighting for free. They win their fight, they get 5K.

  8. dane drebin says:

    5 grand aint shit to dana and if kimbo loses yes he faught for free.

  9. dane drebin says:

    5 grand isnt anything to kimbo either he made 500 k in his last fight. the ufc would be downright stupid if they didnt let kimbo fight on TUF. they are gunna profit so much from this and they barely have to pay kimbo even if he wins a couple fights.

    but thanks for setting the record straight nichole ur always so helpfull

  10. Kimbo is not a good fighter and will not win or make it to the Semi Finals…But yeah it will help the Tuf show get a Lot more Views , but fuck Its just going to be like The Junie SEASON but Kimbo now..

  11. kimbo is in and he will be there for the whole season, no fighting to get on the show for this one.

  12. I thought if you lose your fight your gone…So basically we can consider Kimbo to be gone already…unless the UFC plans are to have them train pick their opponents but put Kimbo up against people he could very well beat and leave the ones that would demolish him to fight eachother and then that way if Kimbo keeps winning he has a chance to make it to the finals and fight someone with some talent and skill thus in the long run have made the UFC alot of money in sponsorships and ratings would go through the roof.

    You never know what to excpect and i just hope like tom says its not another Junie Show…..

    I hate Kimbo but have to respect the man for at least trying….Hey i heard Bobby Lashley was going to tryout for TUF10…any news on that?

  13. Yah but Tim, remember, they don't actually leave the house anymore. When they lose they stay to help train. And season 1 got really boring after so many people left the show.

  14. It will probably be another entertaining season if Kimbo is half as cocky as Junie.

  15. 69insidemytriangle says:

    "I thought if you lose your fight your gone…So basically we can consider Kimbo to be gone already"

    tim you fucktard everyone knows the fighters stay in the house even after they are eleminated. kimbo aint no ho like you. he's stayin in the house wedda you like it or not.

    and kimbo aint no junie. he's commin to fight and get a ufc contract. even if he loses dana will give him a contract because he will respect that he went on the show and made dem the paper.

  16. ron shaw says:

    maybe i missed the interviews where kimbo looked as cocky or for that matter, as much of a dick as junie. i know he was the most hated because he was making big money and headlining shows against chumps. but in the interviews i saw him in he was respectful.

    i don't know how good of a fighter he is but i guess we'll have to wait to find out. all i know is if he does halfway decent he'll be in the finale fighting someone.

    as far as eliminations go, they should bring that back to TUF. i liked it better when it was win or go home.

  17. i do agree kimbo never seemed to be a dick or as arrogaant as junie. and i do agree with 69(not the way he put it) kimbo will fight on the ufn card after the show wether he wins or loses the show or even his first fight.

  18. thedude says:

    im sorry but 69insidemytriangle, your a f***in idiot. kimbo is nothin but a bitch and everyone knows it. hes not gonna win one fight, danas not gonna give him any contract, especially after all the shit im sure kimbo will talk in the house. this is danas chance to make kimbo look like the chump he really is, and to get a assload of ratings on his reality show thats gotten pretty stale these last couple seasons.

  19. 69insidemytriangle says:

    you'll see big boy kimbo be fightin on the finale one way or de other ill bet you moooolah. i dun even think kimbos a good fighter but dana sees dolla bills when he see's kimbo and he will use him to make da paper belee dat

  20. 69insidemytriangle says:

    and dun say im sorry less you mean it play boy. neva apologize i like hearin dat emotion from you

  21. Cobra Clutch says:

    69…please go back to not posting anything.

  22. 69insidemytriangle says:

    how bout i go back to posting up in yo mouth cobra koochie

  23. Cobra Clutch says:

    Dane, please post something. I like you so much right about now. You seem so friendly and civilized and knowledgeable to me now. hahahaha.

  24. dane drebin says:

    HAHAHAHAHAHAH wtf happened here?

  25. dane drebin says:

    kimbo will for sure fight on the finale imo. dana has talked a lot of shit about kimbo but it was because he was threatened by elitexc and i think elitexc being on NBC left a bad taste in danas mouth. im sure dana wanted the UFC to be the first promotion on a big network. dana knows kimbo isnt the future heavyweight champ but i think this move has atleast made dana gain a lil respect for kimbo takin the hard road to proving himself.

  26. Cobra Clutch says:

    I think Kimbo will fight in the finale, but not as a finalist. I think he'll be done in either the first or second fight. I'm sure they'll put him towards the end, and up against the biggest puff they have there. Then Kimbo will lose, but be in the finale as a fighter on the main card. That's my opinion. As Kimbo said in the blog, there's a recession out there and he's hungry and needs to eat. Funny, didn't he just get $500k six months ago? How much is the guy eating? hahaha.

  27. Yeah, he may have some respect, but once he exposes Kimbo's horrible weaknesses, he won't be the big draw that he is now. For that reason, I don't think Dana will fight too hard to keep Kimbo in the UFC. There is the possibility, though, that Kimbo has been training like crazy, and yeah it is possible for him to win.

    Roy, I wasn't saying that he is cocky, I'm just saying IF he was, it'll be interesting.

    "and dun say im sorry less you mean it play boy. neva apologize i like hearin dat emotion from you"

    69insidemytriangle, what the hell does this even mean in english? You like to hear him apologize? Didn't you tell him that HE sounded like the guys from brokeback mountain?

  28. Ryan S…i forgot about that they stay in the house to train…well it seems the show changes every time.

    69-you have got to be the most uneducated person ever…you think Dana is going to just give Kimbo a contract and a fight in th Finale? Are you serious…Kimbo is only a name with no skills to back it up…Dana is taking the smart route and letting Kimbo do the work and earn his spots…If and If Kimbo makes it that far then he has earned it and if he wins the finale then he earned a contract as well…But honestly i do not see that happening. Dana isnt stupid and is not going to give someone who he and many other top UFC talent consider an insult to MMA a instant contract just to bring in ratings…No Dana is going to use the TUF to his advantage and see how it play out…either way Dana wins…if Kimbo loses well he is off the show and cant compete in the finale to earn a contract….if he wins then Dana uses his name and the fact that he earned his right to be there and make money off of him…Dana isnt concerned with making money off of Kimbo…he is going to let Kimbo make him money and that will have to be seen…Dana and the UFC do not need Kimbo….Kimbo needs the UFC…so lets see what he can do….

  29. Nichole Lesniak says:

    Tim – from my understanding, Dana changed the format for just this season because it was hard enough to find 8 HW's, let alone 16. Hopefully season 11 will be back to fighting to get in the house!

  30. Cool…thanks…i dont watch TUF much…but when i do something is always different….like when i was watching this past one and one the UK fighters lost, he was still in the house the next day training…

  31. Cobra Clutch says:

    Tim, Kimbo can fight in the finale without fighting for a title. If Kimbo doesn't become a finalist (which he will not), then Dana would probably still have him in the finale show, just like he did for a lot of TUF competitors that he liked. Kimbo is way too much of a temporary attraction to NOT have him in the finale event. But rest assured, there's no shot in my opinion of getting to the final match for Kimbo.

  32. Cobra Clutch says:

    ugh…i mean "contract" not "title"

  33. I know that but i dont like it…why would Dana put Kimbo on the card for the finale if he loses in the show, that makes no sense…understandable for ratings but for MMA its a disgrace and for all the other fighters who think Kimbo is joke and if he losses early in the show and looks bad then having him on the finale card would be a major blow to all other MMA fighters…

    Kimbo has to do good…in other words he has to earn his spot on the finale card…Dana isnt stupid.

  34. now you will see its about money, kimbo will bring in people so he will fight for the ufc at least 2 more times after the show even if he loses his first fight. also kimbo is getting a better contract than anyother tuf winner if he wins .just like lesnar getting paid better than most after 1 fight because he brings in people.

  35. Nichole Lesniak says:

    True – look at Junie, Soszynski, among others. They lost on the show but have continued to get fights.

    Tim – the losers are ALWAYS on the finale card.

  36. Cobra Clutch says:

    Roy, where did you hear that Kimbo would get a better contract than any other TUF winner? The contract is the contract. He might get fight win bonus (not that he's going to win any of them, hahaha), but everyone gets that.

  37. dana said it himself, kimbo is getting a much different contract if he wins. why would kimbo come on the show to make very little money when he could get paid good with strikeforce or in japan? thats the incentive dana used if kimbo wins he gets a big contract but for the show he just gets what the other guys are getting, dana probally made the deal knowing kimbo won't win.

  38. Cobra Clutch says:

    He's not going to win, so I guess it doesn't matter, right? But thanks for clarifying. :)

  39. dane drebin says:

    i wouldnt mind seeing kimbo fight houston alexander lol

  40. it wouldn't be a bad match up, there might be some guys kimbo could beat but maybe not, i wonder if he has improved at all or if he has been training mma?

  41. Cobra Clutch says:

    You mean you wouldn't mind seeing Alexander whoop Kimbo's ass! I don't think there's anyone in the UFC that Kimbo could beat. He tapped to the dude with the alien living on his ear, but the ref didn't see it.

  42. dane drebin says:

    alexanders jaw is as suspect as kimbos i think whoever got the first hard blwo would win that one

  43. How can you compare Kimbo to Lesnar…thats a major insult to MMA..at least Lesnar has a legit athletic background and has proven himself in this sport as a beginner…Kimbo is not on lesnars level…

    I didnt realize the losers fight on the show…do they really?

    Kimbo is only a draw factor for him being a freak…hence why Dana put him on TUF…he still needs to prove himself…if he comes in and get dominated he wont fight in the UFC very long…Dana will not risk jeopordizing a sport he help create to a respectable level and so far Kimbo isnt in that level or class…he must earn it…

  44. dane drebin says:

    tim half of the people in the ufc are people who didnt win on tuf. kos lost on tuf look at him now. you ever heard of jardine? marcus davis? kenny florian? come on now

    i do agree with you tho kimbo and brock has the same record thats where the similarities end. 285 brock would have his way with lil 230 pound kimbo.

  45. 69insidemytriangle says:

    Tim you might spell betta dan me but its pritty funny you call me uneducated when you da one whos wrong. kimbo wont fight in the finale hahaha everyone but you knows dana will give him a fight so the ufc can make some mo paper.

    im uneducated? you say kimbo needs to earn his spots hahahaha you stupid pooner da phrase is earn yo stripes. even i know dat foo. betta luck next time hillbilly. cock chestnar is flexin his titties waitin fo you.

  46. Cobra Clutch says:

    69, you're getting better at this "character" you created. unfortunately, you still need to work on it, but it's getting there. i used to think you were actually serious and that ignorant, but you gave it away in a few of your posts. You are actually around what? 28-30, have a day job, and are on the west coast. am i right? post just one thing as yourself for a second then go back to the character and we can all have fun with it. :)

  47. tim i was comparing brock to kimbo as a fighter, but as a draw and why kimbo will get more just like brock did its just the way it is, and your so wrong about what dana would do ,first off the ufc is not a sport its sports entertainment and he will do anything to make a buck that he can get away with, yes he will try to justify why he has kimbo there and there are a few things he wouldn't do but signing kimbo isn't one of them, he will get every penny out of this he can and than drop kimbo.

  48. should be wasn't not was ^^^^^

  49. Dana isnt one to go back on his comments on people..unless they prove him wrong..Dana is going to make huge bucks just on TUF10 along with Kimbo on it…remember he doesnt need Kimbo, Kimbo needs the UFC…I am sure Dana will milk it for all he can within reason..I truly do not think he would put Kimbo in the UFC if he does not prove himself…then all Dana would be is Elite XC but a bigger version…Dana will not let a fighter with such low class talent fight in the UFC as that would send a bad mesage to everyone else in the world and all the current UFC Fighters…

    If Kimbo proves himself and fights in the UFC, i am sure he will make okay money but no where near the likes of Lesnar, Couture, Rampage, Liddel, GSP etc…he would start at the bottom and work his way up..

    Your wrong Lesnar is a much bigger draw and has the background to back it up and he deserved his pay outs from the beginning due to his name and athletic background.

    Kimbo has a name but has absolutly no athletic ability and no background in anything other than back yard brawls…

    Lesnar is a legitimate contender and therefore you cant compare the two by any means.

    Dana will not risk losing what he has built the UFC upon for Kimbo money….Kimbo has to earn every bit of it..

    Stated again…the UFC and Dana do not NEED Kimbo…Kimbo nees the UFC…Dana is going to let this one play out on TUF10 and reeep any rewards that come along if any.

  50. i can compare the two and did, not in a disrespectfull way just that lesnar got more money because he is a big draw and so will kimbo i never said he would get as much as lesnar just that he would get more than any of the other tuff winners and thats from dana himself.dana will and has went back on many comments so what are you talking about?kimbo will fight in the ufc even if he loses his first fight on tuff. i say if he loses every fight he will fight at least 2 times in the ufc after the show and you will see for yourself when it happens.
