Apr 4 - Chuck Liddell irked by Kimbo’s popularity
 

 
Former UFC light heavyweight champion Chuck Liddell (21-5), arguably MMA’s biggest star just as the sport began its march toward the mainstream, is appalled by Kevin “Kimbo Slice” Ferguson (2-0) and says a checkered past of beating up a “bunch of guys on the street” is the only reason for his popularity.

Liddell talked about EliteXC’s prized heavyweight in a recent interview with our friend Mark Gilbert of The Sun.

According to Liddell, Ferguson is training and learning MMA, but he “hasn’t done anything” to earn the praise he receives.

“Kimbo’s one of those guys who doesn’t have any ground game,” Liddell told The Sun. “He’s training and he’s learning but he’s been built up as such a big star, and that’s the thing that bothers me.

“People talk about him like he’s the next great thing when he really hasn’t done anything. He’s been built up because of the Internet and him beating a bunch of guys on the street.”

Ferguson’s initial fame came from underground f!ght videos posted on YouTube and other video-sharing websites. Based in Miami, the 34-year-old almost always dominated his opponents in the bare-knuckle f!ghts. (Ferguson, though, was eventually stopped by Boston police officer Sean Gannon, who was later signed by the UFC with a mere 1-0 professional record.)

“I could make some impressive knockout videos too if you let me walk outside and just punch people and knock them out—“hey you, come f!ght!” Liddell told The Sun. “F*** we can make a highlight reel tomorrow and go round beating people up and talking about it. We could just go up to people and start dropping them. Wow!”

Liddell is currently slated to face Rashad Evans in the main event of UFC 85, an event that takes place June 7 in London. After winning seven consecutive f!ghts, Liddell suffered back-to-back defeats for the first time in his career, losing his belt to Quinton Jackson in the process. He rebounded for a victory over Wanderlei Silva in December.

Ferguson, meanwhile, is slated to headline the first EliteXC-CBS event on May 31. The organization hasn’t announced an opponent, but James Thompson appears to be the leading candidate.

he's got a point. he's not saying kimbo ain't a good f!ghter.. he's just sayin' you can't crown someone as a great after 2 official f!ghts where different rules apply. it's like basketball players who can score but can't play D. yeah, you might be nice and do impressive sh*t, but your game ain't full circle -- and that's all he's sayin bout Kimbo. Now once Kimbo gets the ground game down, it just might be a wrap.

Who cares what he did for MMA, Chuck's not afraid to f!ght him, He's proving a very valid point. Just like Brock Lesnar losing to Frank Mir... Frank got his a.ss beat, but still won because he actually has a ground game. Kimbo doesn't have a ground game but he doesn't really need one honestly, he's a beast. I think Chuck would stand up and f!ght him, he's quicker and hits just as hard and Chuck can take a beating, so if it does turn into a brawl, it will head to the ground and Chuck has him there. Kimbo will try his hardest not to get on the ground against anyone, he understands that he's a monster... He should f!ght Brock Lesnar, I would love to see that.

Kimbo with a ground game would be very dangerous... I wish he wasn't so big... I mean there are so many great f!ghters out there that would eat him alive on the ground if they were relatively close in size.

Seriously though, that be one hell of a f!ght... you act like Chuck can't strike, his fists are blocks of ice, knock you out cold. I don't care how big you are, or how tough you think you are, if one of those bad boys connect, you're not standing.

I think a lot of you guys are under estimating the training that Bas is giving Kimbo. Now Im not saying Kimbo has the ground game down packed but he might be decent with it. I think Kimbo vs Chuck would be a blockbuster f!ght but it would go against what chuck was saying. If he still hasnt proven himself, why should he get to f!ght anybody with a name like Chucks?

Very true but if he does prove himself, say 4 more wins then it's on like Donkey Kong and honestly Kimbo is too big to be on the ground... he's being trained to avoid take downs and beat the fu*k out of people. Have you watched him f!ght? His fists will always be his most powerful weapon, my god, if the man only knew how to kick.
