Person on the Week: Kimbo Slice


I guess I'm not the only one entranced by Mixed Martial Arts (MMA)/cage fighter, Kevin" Kimbo Slice" Ferguson, 34. Of late, he has made the cover of ESPN The Magazine, and NY Mag's Approval Matrix. Dude's BADASS.

I've been enthralled since I caught his (almost) no holds barred--EliteXC Street Certified-- fight on TV in February.

Why? He personifies brute force by kicking ass and taking names. For Chrissake, his last name is Slice. He was paid $175,000 for knocking out, Ultimate Fighting Championship brawler, Tank Abbott...in 43 seconds. He rose to fame by partaking in brutal fights, posted on YouTube. And according to ESPN, Slice admits to being a "just a little" evil, and "dreams of tearing off a man's arm and beating him with it." After all, he has the keen ability to see "souls tremble."

I intend to stay on his good side (thank you very much).

Check out his famous--EliteXC Certified-- fight with Tank Abbott.
