Kimbo Slice talks about his new commercial, his dream fight and his former coach, Bas Rutton

Kimbo Slice has responded to comments made about him recently by his former MMA coach Bas Rutten.

Rutten told Fighters Only in June that Kimbo “turned into a whole different person… I told him that he was an asshole. He just turned into a different guy, he didn’t need to do the things that I told him to do”.

TUF 10 contestant Slice expressed surprise when Fighters Only put Rutten’s comments to him today, saying he had “no idea he felt that way”.

He explained, “I guess with him, he pretended to be a friend but he really wasn’t I guess. It was just business with him. You pay a guy good money to teach you things and be a good teacher and they take your money.

“But then they turn round and say ‘I tried to teach you stuff but its not working’?… Come on man, you’re not a good teacher – so really he owes me some money right?” Slice laughed. “But its all good, we all do what we gotta do.”

Slice and Rutten parted ways shortly after EliteXC folded and both sides have expressed satisfaction at the split. Slice is now a contestant on season ten of The Ultimate Fighter, which features an all-heavyweight cast.

Conflicting rumours abound of how Slice has fared on the show, but the man himself remains tight-lipped. All he would say when asked how he did on the show was “wait and see”.
