Street fighting sensation Kimbo Slice rose to fame a couple years ago when his backyard brawls became extremely popular on YouTube and other online sites. His popularity on the internet quickly turned into a professional Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) fighting career for Kimbo Slice, whose real name is Kevin Ferguson.
Kimbo Slice is mainly known for his backyard brawls posted on the internet but he is now training in MMA and is also a new member of the biggest organization in the sport, the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC).
If you randomly asked an average person walking by you on the sidewalk who the best fighter in the world is, there is a good chance they would say Kimbo Slice. The reason is simply that he is very well known among the majority of people who don’t really follow MMA or know much about it. As far as most people are concerned, Kimbo Slice is the toughest guy out there.
So, is Kimbo Slice the best fighter in the world?
The answer is undoubtedly NO!
Sure, he was a great street fighter, backyard brawler or whatever you want to call it. But the fact is he was fighting nobody’s in those fights. Any top level UFC fighter would destroy Kimbo Slice 9 times out of 10 right now. Actually most mid level UFC fighters would beat him if they fought right now.
However, Kimbo is training hard at MMA and he does have a big head start over most fighters just getting into the sport because of his natural fighting ability and raw toughness. He may soon become the best fighter in the world and silence all the critics. It’s certainly possible and definitely not out of the question.
Keep an eye on Kimbo Slice because he’s already tough as nails and the more MMA training he gets the tougher he’s going to be. This is a man on a mission and a force to be reckoned with!
