Kimbo: ‘I should have left street fighting for MMA sooner’

“I wish I would have took it serious then and started rolling back then. I would have. I really would have. If I had to write a letter to my younger self, I would have told my younger self if Masvidal comes to you and says, ‘Hey you want to start training, leave this sh*t alone … do it now and get into it.’ But I didn’t. I stuck with streetfighting for another couple of years.”

That’s what Bellator’s Kimbo Slice had to say about his MMA career, during a recent media day event for Friday’s Bellator 138. Kimbo will fight in the main event against MMA legend Ken Shamrock.

Do you think if Kimbo dedicated time to MMA earlier on in his life he would have been an elite fighter?
