Thank you: MMA trash talkers

How fun would the fight game be without quality smack? We love Georges St. Pierre, Urijah Faber and the public persona of Anderson Silva but we also need fighters who will say straight out, "I will kick his ass." It's especially funny when it comes from someone with no credentials. Because eventually a guy like Brett Rogers will have to step in there with a top level fighter. Be careful that you don't bite off more than you can chew.

Rogers brought out the big guns on Kimbo Slice back in August. He pimp slapped Kimbo and Ken Shamrock from pillar to pillar in a press release:

"As for Oct 4th; that was our spot. Shamrock with his name and giant ego butted in line to get a slice of Kevin. At 103 years of age Ken usurped our rightful place against the YouTube champ. Our sincerest hope is that Ken whips Kimbo and then we can finally euthanize the "World's Most Dangerous Man" and relegate him to some MMA dinosaur exhibit. Maybe taxidermy him and (Dan) Severn and place them on a rotating pedestal where they can endless circle each other."

He followed that up with the best line of the year comparing Kimbo to the Abominable Snowman:

"If Ken proves to be more sham [than] rock and Fergi beats him, then the Slice hype grows even greater. Dude is already more myth [than] Sasquatch, Chupacabra and a [expletive] unicorn combined. Kevin is the black Yeti."

Rogers wanted the big fight, now he may get what he was hoping for if the Josh Barnett rumors are true. Let's see if 'The Grim' verbally attacks Barnett with the same ferocity. And I can't wait to hear Barnett's response. 'The Baby Faced Assassin' is one of the best pre-fight talkers in the business.
