In a recent interview with MMAWeekly Radio, UFC veteran Paul Buentelllo called out Kimbo Slice challanging him to a fight. Buentello holds wins over both of Kimbo’s opponents, Bo Cantrel and Tank Abbott.
People want to see it. I think everybody wants to see it. Me and Kimbo should lace up the gloves….Everybody wants to see it and I think it’s time. He’s fighting all the guys I’ve already knocked out and I’ve already exposed. He needs to get off that buffet line I put out there and come over to my Paul Buentello taco shop and see if we can get to work.
Everybody asks me ‘when are you going to fight Kimbo? You should fight that Kimbo guy….Just give him much respect, he’s been training and accomplished a lot in a year or so. He’s really putting his hands together, he’s really putting his game plan together….I give him much respect. He stepped up. He went from street fighting to MMA and everybody thought he couldn’t produce, but he’s doing it.
