Sports Illustrated: Kimbo Slice Both Hot and Not

The new issue of Sports Illustrated is out, and while the mag didn't spill much ink over last week's major EliteXC/CBS show, they did give a little attention to the card's already overexposed headliner. Kimbo Slice made it onto the weekly "Who's Hot" list, with the following blurb beside a menacing picture of a shirtless Slice:

The former street fighter's much anticipated mixed martial arts fight on CBS - the first MMA event broadcast on network TV - ended when he TKO'd a stumbling James Thompson in Round 3. Said Slice, the kindred soul to Clubber Lang, "I was waiting for the right time to explode."

Unfortunately for Kimbo, SI also named him to the week's "Who's Not" list:

He won his network debut, but the judges were less than impressed: underdog James Thompson took the first two rounds. Fellow ultimate fighters ripped Slice's lackluster showing, and some said the fight shouldn't have been stopped. Sigh. Guess this is the new boxing.
