Bas Rutten: Kimbo Slice Wants A Rematch With Sean Gannon

According to an interview on CbsSportsLine, Bas Rutten has stated that Kimbo Slice really wants to fight Sean Gannon. Gannon defeated Kimbo by Guillotine during one of Kimbos infamous street fighting videos.

As a result of the fight, the UFC invited Gannon to fight at UFC 55, where he was quickly defeated by Branden Lee Hinkle.

Q: Have you discussed an opponent at all?

BR: No, absolutely not. We would really like to have Sean Gannon, the guy he lost to on the Internet, because they changed a lot of rules with that fight. That fight was purely boxing and suddenly knees started getting involved and the choke holds and he started clinching, and that was not just the match. I think it’s really been bothering Kimbo and I think he wants revenge.

That match is high on the priority list and hopefully Tank Abbott is one, too. Apparently he made some videos and said some things about Kimbo. When you put those videos out I think you should not only just bark but you should fight and take the fight.

    Kimbo might as well fight both of these guys in the same night because he will steam roll both of them anyway.

    I agree Gannon and kimbo fought when kimbo had no mma training at all now he is being trained to fight big difference from him now and then. He ko's gannon now. 1st rd.

    If Gannon is smart he wont take another fight with Kimbo

    Kimbo with his mma training will be way to much for Gannon

    I would take the fight if I was Gannon or Tank. Its a good payday that they can't really get from fighting anyone else.

    We go through the same thing every Kimbo thread. He has to fight people like Tank and Gannon. It's pretty basic logic.

    I think Kimbo should fight someone in the UFC. If Slice loss to Gannon with no expert training and still destroyed Gannon's face, it with no doubt that with his expert training now he would easily be in the top of the heavy weight devision in the UFC. Picture Slice verses Couture ppv. Do you really think it would be easy for Courture to walk through Slice . Tito Ortiz said Slice would be beat within seconds. Let his ass try and beat Slice in seconds , he would get his ass beat if he was in a match with Slice himself. Set if up Danny White. Money talks and Kimbo is who people want to see. Number don't lie.

    You are comparing Gannon to real UFC fighters? He got his shot in the UFC and was terrible so thats not a good measure of how Kimbo is going to do in the UFC. I think he will be good but he's still new to the scene so he's going to fight some more warm-ups before he fights upper level fighters. His next fights will be against Gannon and Tank watch.

    Yeah and after his contract with Elite xc he will probally go to the UFC. Thats if he wins all of his fights in the Small organization he s i. I mean the UFC is the big dance. He isnt ready for it yet. He def. needs these lower level fights to get use to the atmosphere.

    well this is coming from a fan of gannon, he did defeat slice, which is pretty fucking good, but i wud not recommend a rematch. for the sake of gannon, he wud get crushed i no for a fact, slice is taking this way more serious and training way fucking harder, now if it was tank against slice, im rooting for tank for sure and i no he could do alot more damage then gannon could, so slice if u wanna get revenge and take on ur only defeat that is completley understandable, i lost a fight in tae kwon do, when i rematched the guy i fuckin destroyed him and that was my only defeat thats gonna happen to gannon, but i would definatley rather c tank vs slice because i already no the outcome of the rematch.

    "flex" youare a fucking dumbass… yes couture would walk through slice. as would tito.tito would take down kimbo and smash his brains in. tito walks around at 230. 20 pounds isnt gunna outweigh talent in the ufc heavyweight division.

    This is only fair that he gets the rematch with Gannon since Gannon cheated because he was gonna get his but beat.

    LOL, Kimbo Slice is a HACK. How many times do I have to try and explain it to guys like you. This guy is nothing and made a reputation by beating up on out of shape thugs that look at life as a 40 ounce bottle of RED BULL. This guy is the joke of MMA.

    Sean Gannon is nothing more than a real life Baby Huey who beat a guy that does nothing more than give excuses as to why he lost. Slice is a whiner and has become the face of mma. Sad thing is , he doesnt realise his face will soon resemble a punching bag for all real MMA fighters. If Slice is such a great Street Fighter then he should be able to handle Knees and elbows. LOL

    kimbo slice would beat the brakes off Sean Gannon and Tito Ortiz. The losses Kimbo has will only make him a better fighter. I think Sean Gannon should give Kimbo Slice a rematch becuase Gannon used submissions in what was supposed to be a strickley stand up hand to hand fight. Gannon said that Kimbos people told him no ground and pound or no submissions but they didnt say anything about stand up submissions, well im not a genius or a rocket scientists but the last time I checked a standing choke hold is considerd a type of submissions. Gannon needs to stop bieng a pussy and give Kimbo his well deserved rematch. Kimbo Slice is the truth.
