KIMBO SLICE HAS A LONG WAY TO GO

No one I know disputes the argument that Kimbo Slice has lead fists and doesn't feel pain.  But on CBS's presentation of EliteXC on Saturday night, the title "Kimbo Slice, Serious MMA Professional" seemed like a stretch, as the usual knocks on Slice — subpar aerobic fitness, no ground game — haunted him during his headline match against James Thompson.

The video above (from FanIQ) is of Round 3, when Slice scores his TKO by opening up the rotted fruit of Thompson's cauliflower ear, then scoring four straight blows to Thompson's face that left the Colossus dazed.  Don't listen to Gus Johnson's accusation that the fight was waved off prematurely — Thompson's glazed eyes show that his brain was all, "That's it, I'm outta here.  I'll let you know when we have Alzheimer's." 

In perhaps an unfair twist, Slice and his titanium skull were able to withstand two minutes of elbows and punches to the head while pinned against the cage during Round 2without suffering a cut.  He's still not ready for UFC, but military scientists would like to clone his DNA.
