Jim Ross Blog: Kimbo Slice, Seth Rollins as Babyface, Brock Lesnar to UFC 200

Jim Ross had a new blog, here are some highlights.

on Kimbo Slice
Sorry to hear of the passing of Kimbo Slice who was once a guest on The Ross Report to promote his fight again Dada 5000. Kimbo was a legit character from the street and was very believable when he spoke as he was not working from a script but instead from his heart and with his natural instincts standing out. RIPKevinFerguson

on Seth Rollins as Babyface
Seth Rollins is starting to evolve as a fan favorite which may not be the WWE plan at this time. My gut says to go with it.

on Brock Lesnar to UFC 200
The Brock Lesnar to UFC 200 continues to get significant coverage in various forms of media and is proving to be what we reported here a few days ago as a win/win for all involved. Great media presence, a huge payday for one of WWE’s most coveted talents, a PPV selling attraction for U/FC and a fight that is intriguing because it all but guaranteed that someone is going to go to sleep.

And the MMA world knows that well could be WWE Superstar and ‘former’ UFC star Brock Lesnar taking the nap. Will Lesnar be a heel or not when he enters the Octagon. For the record, Lesnar could care less about that matter I’m thinking. He’d likely allow the boos to motivate him.

I do know that Brock Lesnar sells PPV’s and that’s why he’s on this huge card that commemorates the UFC’s biggest ever weekend.

Lesnar opening as the betting underdog which is no surprise to me considering his MMA dormancy the past few years. Plus, the one thing that Mark Hunt does SO well is that he’s a knockout puncher of note and the fact that Brock’s apparent biggest weakness is his striking defense.

On paper, this is not a good stylistic booking for Brock Lesnar but one that I’m positive that the athletic competitor in Lesnar will relish.
