The Kimbo Reality Check

The only disappointing moment on a fantastic show for Elite XC was the lukewarm reaction to Kimbo Slice.  After the insane reaction to him in Miami, I'm sure Pro Elite was hoping for the same kind of thing in San Jose.  This was a big wake up call in terms of Kimbo's star power.  It is still fairly limited to internet hype and local legend.  The chummy conversation with Goldberg was a downer as well.

This isn't to say he won't become a mega star.  There's a big chance that will indeed happen.  It's just a reminder that Kimbo alone cannot carry the first Elite show on CBS.
