On the eve of him attacking your television in Spike's The Ultimate Fighter Heavyweights, we conversated with Cutler Ridge-raised master of Miami backyard beat-downs Kimbo Slice, to get his take on fighting implements, alcohol, and the importance of Fraggles.
Knockout or submission?
Knockout, KO, all day. It's what the people want to see. They want to see dudes get knocked the f**k out.
Backyard or Octagon?
Oh man...octagon. You make more money.
Brass knuckles or nunchucks?
(chuckles) Oh, brass knuckles. With brass knuckles you're throwing the fists.
"Blood And Bone" or "Merry Christmas, Drake & Josh"? (his two starring film roles)
Ahh, I think I'm gonna go with "Merry Christmas, Jake and Josh". It's a kids movie, man. My kids loved it.
The next big Hollywood action star, or the next Reality King?
I'm always gonna be a reality king, so Hollywood all day.
Playing you in a movie, Mr. T, or T-Pain?
Ha. Oh man, Mr. T's kinda old, and he doesn't have any gold in his mouth. T-Pain, he's a singer. So I'm gonna have to say my son, Kevin, Jr.
Hugs or Drugs?
Hugs all day. Hugs are safer.
Rocky or Rambo?
Rambo. He kill anything, man. He's a killer.
Muppets or Fraggles?
Fraggles, Definitely. That's my time man. I grew up in that era. I can't remember any of the names, though.
"Way of the Dragon" or "Drunken Master"?
Drunken Master. He was drinkin' and kicking peoples' ass. Can't beat that.
Oprah or Spock?
Oprah. She's my sistah. I like that episode where she busts that guy (James Frey) lying about his book. And then there's the one where Tom Cruise goes all crazy and dances on the couch.
Hobbits or Richard Simmons?
HOBBITS ALL F**KIN' DAY! They're short, they're quiet, and they stay out the way. Richard Simmons is all flashy and his shorts are too short.
Beer or liquor?
Liquor. Beer gives you a beer belly. Liquor gives you cirrhosis of the liver. So I guess it's either one.
Monkeys or kangaroos?
Kangaroos. Hell, they've got a pocket you can pack a pistol in.
Chewbacca or Van Damme?
Chewbacca all day. He's a monster. You can't mess with Chewbacca. He knows how to shoot a gun. And the motherf**ker could fly a spaceship. And he was a body guard.
