Gary Shaw on UFC cutting Kimbo Slice: “I think the UFC made a huge mistake.”

Former EliteXC boss Gary Shaw, doesn’t agree with the UFC’s decision to cut Kimbo Slice after his UFC 113 loss to Matt Mitrione last month.

Shaw, speaking via the Fight Hub, said:

“I think the UFC made a huge mistake. Once again Dana’s ego has gotten in the way. I think Kimbo Slice could be a draw wherever he goes around the world. I think they matched him up wrong. I would have put him in against just stand-up fighters. I would have built to a pay-per-view with James Toney. My way of doing business is obviously different than Dana’s and the UFC. I don’t knock them — they got a great product and make a ton of money so God bless them, but I sure wouldn’t have promoted Kimbo Slice like they did and I hope Kimbo comes around and gets in a boxing ring with me.”
