Fucking Classic Dana White Quote on Kimbo vs. Shamrock

I don't know about you but I'm McLovin the back and forth trash talking between Dana White and EliteXC's Gary Shaw.

Here's a classic quote from Dana White about the announcement that Kimbo will be fighting "The World's Most Dangerous Man", Ken Shamrock for his next MMA bout.

"Another fucking joke from Gary Shaw. This fucker is so clueless that it's laughable. First he thought we protected our guys, which is bullshit. Then he gave us shit for matching up Brock against Frank Mir. Which would he rather us do? Obviously he's in favor of protecting guys since Kimbo doesn't seem to be fighting a good fighter anytime soon. Bo Cantrell? Who the fuck is Bo Cantrell? Tank Abbott? He was never that good, he just looked tough and always got his ass kicked. Now Ken Shamrock? When is Kimbo going to fight a guy who was relevant past 1998? Tito Ortiz, who sucks, destroyed Ken Shamrock three times. It's clear that Gary is going to milk his YouTube cash cow for all he's worth but true fans know that Kimbo is a joke and he would get destroyed against any UFC Heavyweight. Maybe that moron Ken Shamrock will expose Kimbo and he'll go back to fighting guys at the local Burger King. Gary Shaw and his 3rd rate promotion have no fucking credibility."

(Cock knock to 411Mania for the quote.)

Listen, Gary Shaw is smart to sign former UFC stars to serve up to Kimbo. EliteXC is leveraging the UFC brand to showcase their own marquee goliath in Kevin "Kimbo Slice" Ferguson to sell PPV's and are doing so very successfully.

Dana was absolutely stupid to match 1-0 Lesnar with a former UFC Heavyweight Champion and BJJ expert in Frank Mir. If Dana sends his own cash cow down the garden path again and the result is a second loss then Lesnar will lose his "star" power thus diminishing the PPV draw and also Lesnar's future within the UFC.

Gary Shaw would sign Lesnar in a heartbeat when Dana gets tired of Lesnar's losses which would be very smart for EliteXC to pick up famous, albeit irrelevant MMA fighters from the UFC to draw in more PPV buys from the casual MMA fan due to name and brand awareness (which is the reason why Dana signed Lesnar in the first place to bridge WWE fans over to the UFC in Lesnar's name).

The real truth is that Dana White is jealous now that he doesn't have Kimbo who is a huge PPV draw for EliteXC and a real MMA fighter under the watchful eye of his trainer and former UFC Heavyweight and Pancrase behemoth fighter, "El Guapo", Bas Rutten who ironically lost twice to Ken Shamrock in his career.

Stay tuned to your local Burger King parking lot for more developments to this Kimbo Slice/Brock Lesnar UFC/EliteXC saga.

P.S. Thanks to those folks who donated bail money for my release... it's appreciated!

  3. funny enough I met Ken Shamrock at a Burger King in Northern California post-Tito 2 Fight...
