Okay, first of all, check this out:
Did you see that? YouTube sensation and glass-jawed promotion-killer Kimbo Slice is stepping into the ring to fight the criminally underrated champion of the now-defunct International Fight League, Roy “Big Country” Nelson. He got knocked the fuck out by Seth Petruzelli, a TUF-reject and UFC washout, and is now stepping up to face one of the most dangerous men on the planet in a fight that will earn him scale as a bottom-of-the-barrel actor.
Meanwhile, the most highly rated, most highly touted, most amazing heavyweight fighter in the world, Fedor Emelianenko is taking on Brett Rogers, a guy who just quit his job changing tires at Sam’s Club in January. Seriously. Now Brett is currently ranked more highly than Roy, but that’s a) part of the “fighting Fedor bounce” and b) complete and utter bullshit.
The point isn’t that Kimbo is a better fighter or a better man than Fedor. It’s that Kimbo at least has the stones to go out there and test himself against the best fighters he can while Fedor is hiding behind his crooked management team so that he can fight scrubs.
Sack up, Fedor. Book a real fight.
