Kimbo: the Face of MMA?

This weekend there are two nights of MMA action available to fans. On Saturday night CBS teams with EliteXC and jumps into the mix with Kimbo Slice headlining a card that also features a female MMA fighter. Sunday Jens Pulver challenges Urijah Faber for his World Extreme Cagefighting featherweight title belt on the VS channel.

There's no doubt that I plan to tune in both nights. I'm a fan of MMA fighting and will enjoy the bouts. Saturday night my guess is a lot of folks who aren't already MMA fans will tune in to see what all the fuss is about. Thinking along those lines I planned a post about why Kimbo shouldn't become the face of MMA, but why he might be [at least for a while]. Then I read Dan Wetzel's column today and realized that he said everything I planned to and more.

This is the same Kimbo Slice who has backyard/underground fights plastered all over YouTube??
Should be interesting!

Yeah, it was interesting. In a circus kind of way.
