"Who would have thought the WWE champion would be the UFC champion? You never know what can happen in the fight game. I’d love to see it happen, it’s a long shot but I’d love to see it."
The above quote is from UFC Lightweight Champion BJ Penn when the champion was speaking with the The Sun (based out of the UK). Essentially, it’ll happen. Why would it not? It’s pretty well understood that Dana White likes to create fights that will make him, his organization, and his parenting company a lot of money.
While, I’m not a Brock Lesnar fan, I do respect and understand Dana White’s reasons for creating Lesnar into a household name. Lesnar brings in the money and, as much as I hate to say it, he is actually gaining some skill — besides his size — to defend his title.
Lesnar inspires hope. As does Kimbo. Kimbo inspires us because he would be another "rags-to-riches" type of story. I could root for Kimbo as the UFC Heavyweight Champion. In fact, I endorse Kimbo Slice for a shot at the belt. Not that anything I say has any effect on what is going to happen as I am not even considered a piss-ant in the MMA world, but you get my idea.
If Kimbo garners the skill developed on his appearance with The Ultimate Fighter: Heavywieghts and his training with Florida’s American Top Team, Kimbo could be deadly. We have already seen his deadly striking through YouTube videos and even during his stint with EliteXC.
And besides, I can root for Kimbo just because I don’t like Lesnar as champ.
