Sean McCorkle thinks Kimbo Slice’s last fight was fixed

Though short-lived MMA sensation Kimbo Slice hasn’t stepped into a cage since losing to Matt Mitrione in May 2010, the 38-year old is still actively fighting as a boxer with his latest in-ring performance coming over the weekend against Brian Green. In the bout, Slice ran his record to 4-0 with a knockout in the competition’s final seconds and likely avoided a decision loss in the process.

While the ending was certainly exciting to those with a less discerning eye, former UFC heavyweight Sean McCorkle felt the result was a little too good to be true, especially given the curious behavior of both men throughout the match.

“I mean I’m assuming it was supposed to be, but watching it I can’t believe that anyone is expected to believe that, that was a real fight. And not just the knockout at the end, which by the way was the worst acting I’ve seen outside of a Shaquille O’Neal movie. I mean the whole fight,” wrote McCorkle on The Underground. “Kimbo has either regressed considerably in his hand speed and technique since his UFC days, or he was only throwing at about 25% – 50% that entire fight. Not that he was ever any good to begin with, but that looked like extremely, and I mean EXTREMELY, light sparring.”

“That fight was faker than anything filmed during the 6-12 (can’t remember how many there are) Rocky movies,” McCorkle adding, putting a bottom line on the situation.

In the end, McCorkle stated he understood the need to market Slice in a certain way but bouts such as the one he witnessed over the weekend were an embarrassment to all combat sports. Also, if necessary to prove his point, he volunteered to face Slice at a future show where he would “knock his head off inside of the first two rounds.”

    What a fucking joke. I’ve pissed stronger things than the punch Kimbo supposed “KO’ed” that guy with.

    I’ve seen weaker shots than that knock a person down, but I’ve never seen a shot that weak leave someone completely limp like that. I suppose it’s possible that the fight was legit, but I’m 99.999% sure that was a flop of the most obvious kind.

    Sorry, was overwhelmed with incredulity. You’re right, a KO punch doesn’t need to be that impressive looking, but that was some WWE-style overselling.

    LOL- If you look close it almost looks like Green is starting to smile while he’s laying on the ground. Then the ref is definitely smiling and talking to him like he is joking around with him. I don’t recall ever seeing a ref happy about someone being knocked out. This has “fixed” written all over it.

    This is definitely Kimbo’s biggest win since punching some fat guy at backyard grill party. Easily.

    Kimbo should have never stopped beating up drunks behind the local quik-stop. At least he might have had some self respect left.

    That is not the first fight that was fixed and Kimbo came away as victor. I believe or at least I suspect his fight against Bo was fixed…actually Im positive that was fixed and his fight against Petrizelli was fixed in a way. Thompson vs Kimbo was also very strange. At one point kimbo gets 50 unanswered strikes to the head. Then the fight is stopped with a rocked Thompson complaining to the ref on his feet. Unusual at the very least.
    Kimbo is a joke but it isnt new.

    that Bo Cantrell fight was also very funny to watch, guy started tapping before Kimbo landed anything solid, was like watching UFC 1 again. Was never sure if it was a fix or if Bo was just scared shitless

    The Bo fight was definitely fishy and the Thompson fight will forever go down as one of the most surreal moments in MMA.
