Quote of the Day: Bas Rutten

“We don’t want him to be treated like a circus act, because he’s not...He’s a legitimate fighter who is working extremely hard – I mean as hard as anyone I’ve ever seen – and who is getting better so quickly. Kimbo is a nice, respectful person to everyone he meets and he’s taking the sport super seriously. He deserves that same kind of respect in return.”

-- Bas "El Guapo" Rutten , making the case for Kimbo Slice to be taken seriously as an up-and-coming professional MMA heavyweight.
