MMA Quick Quote: Kimbo Slice has a surprising ground game

"We're continuing to work on polishing his striking and we've changed his stance, which has made him an even better striker. He is more explosive now and fit. But for a guy who has had only two MMA fights, Kimbo continues to do everything right. He is going to surprise everybody with his ground game, especially those who believe he doesn't have one."

-- Bas Rutten -- former UFC heavyweight champion, MMA legend and trainer for Elite XC fighter Kimbo Slice -- talks in a recent press release about how his fighter has come a long way and is prepared to fight on the ground if need be, which goes against popular opinion that the YoutTube sensation is nothing more than a street brawler.

Kimbo added this statement and challenge:

"To all the MMA fighters who continue to disrespect me, to all those who say I don't have a ground game, I lack this, I lack that, I say, 'stop talking and bring it on. I'm ready.'"

It's now how an MMA fighta eat.
