The last time the subject of Kimbo Slice and the dubious decision to promote him as the future of mixed martial arts came up, Hobbyfan (one of my faithful correspondents) predicted that EliteXC, Slice's patron, would go out of business before long. The news has proven Hobby a prophet, and it looks as if it was Slice's defeat on national TV, combined with the victor's comments about how he was encouraged to fight a certain way, that doomed the business. Kimbo is a bubble that has burst, but no one's bailing out EliteXC.
This leaves poor Slice out of a job. As it happens, a position has just opened up. It may be insensitive of me to make this suggestion so soon after Rudy Ray Moore's demise, but it seems to me that Kimbo Slice has exactly the fighting prowess necessary to play the New Dolemite. He'll just need to work on his mic skills -- a lot.
