Jeff Monson calls out Kimbo Slice (video)

Is it just me or does Monson sound like he’s reading from a cue card? All joking aside, there’s no chance in hell that Gary Shaw and EliteXC would put Kimbo in the cage with someone like Monson at this point in his career. Either way, it’s entertaining to hear Monson talk trash.

    Wow, it’s hard to know who to root for in a fight between Monson and Kimbo…

    In one corner you have the Communist loving Jeff Monson (perhaps they should pay him in rubles) shouting at the audience that they are all a bunch of Capitalist Dogs!

    In the other corner, overrated and untested (except by many unknown fighters in various Taco Bell parking lots) EliteXC “Star” Kimbo Slice, former bodyguard to the pimping porn industry.

    Is there any hope here for a double KO?

    The way I see it, Elite is at a cross roads. Shaw will need to decide where he wants his org to go. If he about the fights and the sport itself, or about strictly making money. If its all about money, and he continues to protect Kimbo, Gina Carano, and a few others on his very thin roster of fighters, then he will not make it in this biz. Eventually fans will tire of his product. If he starts to make the fights we all want to see, and let the fighters do the job of promoting themselves with hard work and wins, then he may have a future. Just me climbing off my soapbox now…..

    On a side note, I would love to see Monson and Kimbo. Monson’s takedowns suck and he is not very mobile in the standup, but Kimbo has zero takedown defense and if he goes to the ground, he is dead meat. Even with Monson’s 1ft long arms swinging at his head.

    #3 Nick have you seen Monson resume as a ground fighter..I know Monson has had trouble with some of the top strikers but Kimbo takedown defense would be exploited against a grappler of Monson caliber..Monson ground game is near the top of all HW in the world..he’s a ADCC Champion..

    Would love to see this fight happen but it never will. Shaw wants to protect his golden boy. And its not just Kimbo. It’s K.J. Noons, Nick Diaz, Gina Carano, and Jake Shields. I’m sick of it already and it’s only just begun.

    Monson is lame, besides he said it himself “Kimbo’s only had a few fights”. So what does he expect him to fight the best in his first few?

    #1 Monson’s a commi? I knew he has that stupid Hammer and Sycle tattoo but I just figured he was an idiot and thought it looked cool.

    @#4- I said the same things you did. Try reading the post next time.
    “Monson’s takedowns suck and he is not very mobile in the standup, but Kimbo has zero takedown defense and if he goes to the ground, he is dead meat. ”
    What part of that do you not understand.

    Does anybody actually give a rat’s ass about Jeff Monson?

    Didn’t think so.

    Thanks for signing your name. It’s important just in case we wanted to know who wrote that comment and didn’t know to look at the header where it reads “TFK.”

    Everyone knows the Kimbo hype balloon will eventually end, but let me show you the kind of information that is out there from casual fans. Here’s a quote from a Kimbo fan talking about his possibly getting a role in A-team. Nothing was changed.

    [i]For those of you who have not heard, Kimbo Slice is the ultimate *beep* He was a street fighter who worked his way into the UFC, and is the baddest MF around. He would surpass Mr.T in a second. I implore you to type in Kimbo Slice on google image and tell me otherwise.

    I have to think this represents a huge chunk of Kimbo’s actual fanbase. One loss for Kimbo and these types of comments will cease instantly.

    Joey,

    I know, that was a quote from a forum on the intarwebs from a Kimbo fan. Note the italics tags that failed me on an epic level. Please make sure to read my posts in their complete entirety. If for nothing else than to not cheat yourself of pulitzer worthy pithy comment material.

    Hex – as cool as anarcho-cynicalism sounds, I think you mean anarcho-syndicalism. Although you may have just spawned a new school of French New Wave film.

    Simply put Jeff is an Anarchist, not a communist. Politics aside Monson would destroy Kimbo, but Gary Shaw would never let that fight happen, at least not now :).

    too late. I googled it and some wry fellow has already coined the term “anarcho-cynicalist”, meaning someone sceptical of anarchism. Damn.

    Haha!

    No, Anarcho-Cynicalism is real (google it, seriously) but now that you mention it, i guess it’s possible that im mixed up about which one he claimed now.

    coin flip on Monson actually fighting on the card, the only person who has been announced on a card more than Monson is “TBA”

    That said…I would really like Kimbo to go away…

    Nick,
    you ought to see some of the ways Monson tried to get Syvlia to the ground.. his takedowns don’t suck.. he’s a tricky little S.O.B.

    and ummmm… i didn’t know Monson was such a beastly trash talker.. you know, most of the videos that say “calls out Kimbo” are ones where the fighters are in an interview and at some point say something along the lines of “well, i’m not impressed with his game”.. but.. Monson was by himself.. and he cut straight to the point..

    hahaha when he said “i figured the best way to get a hold of him is on youtube since i know that f**ker dosn’t read” i was like.. WHOA.. HOLY CRAP..

    and.. by the way.. Kimbo’s 3-0.. but.. it’s cool..

  • bjjdenver says:

    Is Monson really this hard up for work? Where is his “will fight Kimbo for food” sign?

    I like Monson, but damn dude, when was the last time you beat somebody relevant? How about calling out Fedor?

    And get realistic. Does ANYONE think Shaw id going to put Kimbo against a ADCC champ anytime soon, if ever??

  • Newport says:

    It’s getting to the point now where it’s almost embarrassing to call out Kimbo. It’s like acknowledging that he’s a high profile fighter. Just ignore him, and let him fight cans. No one serious should take this guy serious

    Monson has a personality? shit. Seriously, put Ol’ Slappy Collossus Thompson back in there with Kimbo and fire away. Kimbo has alot of negative pub on him now and he needs to destroy Thompson to get it back. Monson would ground and pound Kimbo out in one round right now.

    Monson isn’t satan or a communist….he just likes tattoos that look really cool. Just like Kimbo! that beard is so bitchin’. I’ve never seen pubic hair that long!

    I want to call out Kimbo, maybe I can round up enough media attention to sell a few shirts and pay for my platinum fronts to get made.
