Before Kimbo Slice was an amazing MMA fighter, he made his name on YouTube as a serious street fighter — and not someone who you’d ever want to mess with. Check out these amazing knockouts!
Kimbo Slice signed with EliteXC in 2007 after spending years as an underground street fighter, and from there his career just skyrocketed. He defeated Houston Alexander in his UFC debut, and was signed to Bellator MMA from January 2015 until his death on June 6. You can relive some of his best fights right here.
There are so many great moments in Kimbo’s career it is hard to pick his best knockouts. Looking back he may be best known for his fight with the bad boy from Huntington Beach, Tank Abbott. Below you can see Kimbo knockout Tank in the first round of their bout in less than one minute. Wow, what a beast. Kimbo’s passing is truly shocking for MMA fans across the world.
More than his cage fights, Kimbo was well known for his backyard brawling skills. Give Kimbo a parking lot, a garage or a street and an opponent dumb enough to stand up to him and Kimbo would do what he does best, knock guys on their butts. Check out these brawls.
