My name is Kru Phil Nurse. I run a Muay Thai-style fighting gym in New York City called The Wat. We have some of the world champion fighters that trained at The Wat. If you want to find out more about The Wat, you can contact us at thewat.com. Today we're gonna be talking about the UFC. Kimbo Slice, umm..made his debut into the MMA world on elite XC. Elite XC was one of the organizations out there. Umm, I don't think they run anymore but they were out there, they had an MMA league and Kimbo Slice came into the scene there, fighting the streets in Miami and someone was videoing his fights as a street fighter and that's how he got into it. And, definitely great standard of fighter. Worked alongside with him, thought he was a great person, he definitely was trying his best to get his ground game up to par because he didn't have no ground game but he was definitely trying to get his ground game up to par. He tried his best. He wasn't scared of taking a shot and with the stand there, wanted to battle it out who is gonna win, those were his strengths, you know, to stand there and battle it out. But, unfortunately in MMA, you do need to have your ground game and live it more up to par.
