Kimbo Slice vs. Brett Rogers in October?

Apparently Kimbo Slice appeared on Dan Le Batard’s radio show today and claimed that he would be fighting Brett Rogers sometime in October:

Slice appeared on Dan Le Batard’s radio show today and said he’ll fight Rogers next, “probably in October.”

“They called me out, and now they got the fight,” Slice said of Rogers and his camp.

If Rogers’ plan was to get himself a high profile fight with Kimbo via his trashing of Slice’s performance at the post-fight press conference last Satrurday, then he got what he wanted. Brett Rogers is an extremely dangerous opponent for Slice at this point in his MMA career and a fight where Rogers will more than likely come in as the favorite. Personally I don’t think Kimbo is ready for a guy like Rogers just yet but if that’s the fight they want to make, then so be it. It may be that it’s the best fight they can sell based on the scuffle at the post-fight conference and based on what Rogers has said about Kimbo even afterward.

    Morgan, why do you think Brett Rogers will win? Is Rogers really that good or Kimbo that bad?

    Nick…Rogers is a solid young up and comer. Rogers will punch through Kimbo and put this KimboXC to bed so EliteXC can get back on track to MMA. Very pleased at this.

    IF you’re one of those people who’ve been clamoring to for Kimbo to fight someone “real,” then you must be happy.

    I think it’s a bad fight for him to take though. I think Rogers KO’s him in the 1st.

    I have to say I think this is going to be Kimbo’s biggest test to date. Rogers may not be flashy or top of his weight class but Thompson gave Kimbo a serious run for his money and Rogers made KOing Thompson look easy.

    Rogers via TKO in the 2nd.

    Should I care about this fight? No really… Should I care? Who is Brett Rogers? I watched a bit of the post fight presser and read some stuff on him but is this really a big match?

    #6 no it isnt,, kimbo needs atleast another year or more to be any type of mma fighter, but if you remember back in the day of Dan severn and royse gracie at the time that the ufc was new (not owned by the fertittas) it was mixed style fighting, not your hybrid fighters like GSP, thats what we had, brawlers against wrestlers etc…. so who am i to judge.. but i still dont like the hype behind him, he is not the person i want representing the sport that we all admire and respect

    @#6 Not a big fight, but Brett is an up and comer instead of the tide of washed up losers that Kimbo has fought so far. A “big” fight isn’t always good, I mean what did it prove when he beat Tank, despite it being a”big” fight? Who has Tank beaten recently? If you were willing to watch any of Kimbo’s previous fights you should be willing to watch this one since it will actually be a serious fight as opposed to the idiotic spectacle of Kimbo vs Tank or Bo Cantrell.

    Rogers certainly has the power to KO Slice. But should we watch the fight after what a sham the last show was? I will probably simply watch it online afterward…

    Rogers has to make sure to put Kimbo “down and out” to avoid the possibility of having “Geragliotta rules” to make sure that Kimbo is given the edge, and I am sure he knows this.

    Considering all the bad press the fans have imposed on the EliteXC/CBS partnership, we will all be watching…

    ok posted this elsewhere with no response. Dana’s big announcement Mayweather in the UFC. I just think it’s crazy timing for mayweather to say he can’t get up for the challange in “this sport.” I am just speculating but i think it may have heat being that he pulled out of his last major ppv. i’m just saying…

    #10 – that would be very interesting.

    This would be Kimbo’s biggest test to date, and I just hope it isn’t the main event of the card.

    Rogers has dangerous power and solid standup, so this should be a good fight. I say Kimbo wins this one on the ground.

    Until Gary Shaw says Kimbo and Brett Rogers will be fighting in October, I wouldn’t put any stock into it. We know Kimbo is willing to fight Rogers, as he was willing to do during the post-fight press conference. I just doubt Shaw will make that match anytime soon.

    you’ll sound like haters. He in this thrid fight and we are watching kimbo grow as a mma fighter. Everybody gets mad because he generate excitement in the ring. He dont get in there and try to roll around on the mat for 3 rounds. He get in the rind and fights.

    They need to make a new rule that if you are over 6 foot 3 inches and over 250 pounds, you cant fight like a bitch the whole fight. They should have it where if the two fighter go to the ground, you have 30 seconds to make something happen if not, regardless of the situation they have to go to there feet and fight like MEN. This rule should only be for the heavyweights.

    To end this off because if you’ll hating on kimbo, i know u will hate this comment. Stop hating. He is new and upcoming and he is more exciting to watch fight then alot of the professionals, not better (YET AT LEASE).

    last but not lease, this is the dumbest comment i hear a lot from u Kimbo haters. He is not fighting nobody, he need to fight one of MMA champions or verterns. In what fighting sports does a person with 3 fights gets match up this some with 30 professional fights. They dont, u dumb fucks. So stop hating. lets watch Floyd Mayweather fight JOE BLOW (record 3-0), that dont even sound right and it will never happen.

    Im so happy about this fight. Brett Rogers is going to KO Kimbo in the first round. Bottom Line the first real opponent for Kimbo {besides Tank} and Kimbo is going to Lose to Brett Rogers Big Time. I dont think Kimbo wanted this fight as he knows Brett will KO him -but after the post fight press conference Vs Thompson where Brett confronted him. Kimbo was forced to take this fight or look like Gary Shaw’s poster boy and a Coward.

    The thing is Thompson went in running towards Brett. I think if Thompson fought Kimbo first he would have tried to get himself knocked out pretty fast like he always does. Thompson went in with extreme caution because of his experience with Brett Rogers.

    Rogers therefore thinks since he KOed Thompson he can KO Kimbo. Won’t happen.

    Here’s why Brett will lose:

    Kimbo is actually GOOD on the ground, and even BETTER on his feet. Rogers will want to stand up and fight. And if that’s the case then Kimbo’s chin and neck as well as natural boxer body will win the fight. Brett Rogers is an out of shape sack of shapeless muscle. Kimbo Rd 2 KO

    Rogers been fighting stiffs like Kimbo, but imagine Rogers vs. Tank, it would have lasted more than 1 round… so I am guessing Kimbo will TKO rogers.

    Rogers-Slice will be entertaining, people will watch it by the hordes and pay alot of money to see it. Rogers will move up in the ranks and Kimbo will get the pay day he really wants.

    That being said, a few things written on this board that I have to discuss. 1) How is Kimbo bad for MMA? It is not as if MMA will now attract the “wrong” type of fan…does anyone remember when this sport first started and all of smaller, outlaw venues aside from UFC? Only the “wrong” kind of fan watched MMA! MMA survivied because the “wrong” kinds of people wouldn’t let it die. Moreove, the outlaw venues had more fights in the audience than in the ring. So, how is Kimbo “bad” for MMA in this respect. If someone is arguing Kimbo is bad for MMA because he is not a true MMA fighter…isn’t that how MMA started?…take someone from one discipline and have them fight someone from another discipline. Isn’t that still what it is? The better discipline wins. So, WTF would you be talking about? The world already sees the legitimacy of the sport.

    Second, Kimbo was alot better on the ground than anyone thought he would be. But, he wasn’t “good” by any stretch of the imagination. Anyone who saw his unsuccesful guillotines on Thompson would know this. Anyone who noticed how easily Thompson manipulated Kimbo’s arms on the ground would know this.

    Kimbo may very well lose the Rogers fight. But, I like both fighters because they fight to very literally “eat”. I think if you don’t like either fighter, it is more of a personal decision but your dislike would have no grounds based on their effects on MMA. Could the timing of this fight be potentially better in a couple of years? Yes. But, the millions of people will still watch this fight and it will still help the sport grow.

  • kimbo jr says:

    I agree with the guy above. Half of u dont know what yall are talkin about. Kimbo is the most dangerous guy when he is mad.

    Dont judge him instead read his Bio and see where he cam from and how rough his life was, he’s just trying to make a living.

    He never brags anyway so don’t criticize a fighter that never claims to be the best.

    this reply is for “dastruggle” what the hell dose being black have anything to do with being a good fighter? it sounds like your hatred for kimbo and black people is deep; almost as if you’re a racist, and you probably are.

    here’s what i think. i think kimbo represent everything you fear in this world, and that’s the power of a black man. i know he feels your fear, and i damn sure do.

    i wish i could meet you on the street. i’d kick your ass.
