Kimbo's Manager Speaks

MMA Journalist tracked down longtime Kimbo Slice manager Icey Mike yesterday to get his perspective on the sudden downfall of EliteXC. Here are some quotes.
  • "I'm doing good, man. Who is this?"
  • "I don't know, man, I just found out about it yesterday (Monday). I thought they had a good show coming up in November, and now this."
  • "All this happened yesterday and I don't know what's going on until I meet with [ProElite] and figure out where we're at."
  • "Our plan was to fight again in January or February but it doesn't look like that's happening now."
  • "We gotta talk with these guys and see where we're at with the contracts and stuff. We've never been in this situation before."
  • "When everything is said and done, we'll take offers from everyone."
  • "It's going to be hard for anybody to start and organization from the ground up, now. These guys had a lot going for them and they couldn't make it work."
  • "So this is for the New York Times, right?"
