Last night in the co-main event of Bellator 149 Kimbo Slice and Dada 5000 had their highly anticipated grudge match. The fight ultimately ended in controversy, with Dada 5000 appearing to hit the ground from exhaustion rather than a punch.
With that being said Slice looked noticeably exhausted himself, forcing referee John McCarthy to even stand both fighters up when Slice was in mount.
Following the fight Slice reflected on the win at the post-fight press conference, saying:
“Losing is not an option for me,” Slice said at Bellator 149’s post-fight press conference. “You’ve got to really just beat the hell out of me in there. I never just give up. I don’t care if you’ve got a submission, you’re going to have to break it. If you got a neck, you’re going to have to choke me out, put me to sleep. And if you got better hands, you’re going to have to knock me out silly for the ref to stop it.
“I’m that type of fighter. I’m not going to never, never just give up in a fight. As long as I can breathe, and I get back to my feet, we’re going to go.”
