Kimbo Slice leaves MMA

Biggest star of the extinct EliteXC, the heavyweight Kimbo slice will temporarily leave MMA. The fighter informed the Nassau Guardian that he intends to dedicate himself exclusively to boxing at this time.

“Training for MMA is very hard,” stated Kimbo, very succinctly.

Kimbo Slice appeared in the fighting world with videos of his street fights on YouTube, having more than a billion views. This success led him to sign a million-dollar contract with EliteXC, becoming the show's poster boy. But after three consecutive victories, he ended up being knocked out by the “unknown” Seth Petruzelli just 14 seconds into the fight, in October 2008, in the event that declared the organization's bankruptcy.
