Quoteworthy:

"If he [Kimbo] fought anybody that mattered, I would book [Chuck Liddell] tomorrow.... The fact is, Kimbo's not there yet. He would get destroyed. I heard he just got knocked out by Forrest Griffin last week in a sparring match after a kick to the head."

UFC President Dana White admits that he's open to the possibility of setting up a fight between former UFC light heavyweight champion, Chuck Liddell, and EliteXC star -- and former Miami streetbrawler -- Kimbo Slice. Two things have to happen first, however: Kimbo has to become a better fighter and he has to sign with promotion -- White no longer cross promotes. That day might not be too far away. Sam Caplan reminds us that Slice inked a four-fight deal and his next bout against James Thompson in May will be the third under the existing contract. We know that Chuck will be down ... Kimbo bothers him.

UPDATE: Kimbo Slice signed a contract extension today, making this match up -- if were even remotely possible -- no longer possible ... at least for the immediate future.
