Jimmy Kimmel has no fear.

Minutes ago, I was flipping through the channels and I came across Jimmy Kimmel, who was interviewing American badass Kimbo Slice. If you don't know who Kimbo is, wow. Kimbo is a former street-fighter who rose to fame on the internet for repeatedly knocking people out. In fact, in one of the fights, he hit a guy so hard his eye fell out. Look at the picture. Does that look like a cat you would mess with? No, it does not.

Kimbo was on Jimmy Kimmel promoting his upcoming fight with Tank Abbott, and Jimmy had some interesting questions for him. My favorite, which I will qoute verbatim, was this:

Jimmy: Do you like punching people?
Kimbo: Yeah.

Awesome. Actually, Kimbo turned out to be a fairly eloquent guy. One of the more interesting things I learned was that Kimbo has six kids, all of them named Kevin or some variation thereof to include a child named "Kevlar". Jimmy also risked his life by asking, jokingly, if Kimbo had ever been in a relationship with a man. Kimbo looked at him as if he was going to kick him in the soul, and said "No, man.". Frankly, I think Jimmy Kimmel should be awarded a prize, because you have to have some serious stones to ask Kimbo Slice if he is gay while your within striking distance.

Here is a video of Kimbo punching not one, but two people into next week. Swede and I both agree that the second guy has a lot of heart, but he still gets beat like a drum. Be advised, this is a street fight, so there is plenty of cussing and frequent use of the "N" word.
