Gary Shaw: Kimbo Slice should have fought James Toney; Says Dana White is unloyalPosted on June 7, 2010, 04:13 AM by Anton Gurevich
Former Elite XC key man Gary Shaw discussed the latest events in the Ultimate Fighting Championship, especially the cut of Kimbo Slice from the promotion. Shaw introduced Kimbo to the world of Mixed Martial Arts, matching-up the Bahamas native against Bo Cantrell at EliteXC: Renegade.
Shaw stated that UFC did a wrong choice by releasing Kimbo, who he considers a huge draw in the sport. Shaw also revealed that he would match-up Kimbo Slice against James Toney, and not against the relatively well-rounded Matt Mitrione. Speaking about Toney, Shaw thinks that "Lights Out" will lose to Randy Couture at UFC 118, due to his "advanced" age and the lack of time to fully learn all the different aspects of MMA.
