Eric 'Butterbean' Esch: 'Kimbo Slice is going to be grasping at whatever he can get'


Props: MMA Nation


"I don't think Kimbo would demand a lot of money because he really hasn't proven himself. The UFC dumped him so he's gonna be grasping at whatever he can get. Kimbo is very marketable. He and [Mariusz] Pudzianowski would be a great fight. Especially if Pudzianowski learned to fight. But yeah, we definitely have the financial backing to put on the fight. Like I said there's five partners involved with Moosin, and it all works out really well. But it depends on what he does at American Top Team. I'm not even sure if he's still down there. Ricardo Liborio showed him a lot of great stuff, I'm sure. He did look better in his last fight. But it takes time. I've been fighting MMA for six years and I've still got so much more to learn. You have to be really good in one aspect to do well. We'd love to have Pudzianowski long term but he has to start listening to us. With Kimbo, it'd be the same thing." 

The man affectionately known as "Butterbean" attempts to put Kimbo Slice in his place. Or, at least in a place where Moosin could sign the YouTube brawler to a relatively inexpensive deal. Rumors leaked last week of a potential Kimbo Slice vs. Mariusz Pudzianowski main event fight at Moosin's next event in October. First question I have for you, how interested would you be in seeing that fight? Second, what kind of chances do you give the fight to actually materialize? And finally, if these two gentlemen do eventually meet up, who takes it? Have at it, Maniacs.
