What Kimbo Slice and Dick Fuld Now Have in Common

California Correspondent October 7, 2008 5

If you thought Kimbo Slice got paid nicely to get knocked out 14 seconds, think again. News broke this afternoon that Lehman Brothers CEO Dick Fuld got knocked out cold by a former employee at the company gym after he announced that Lehman was going under. From Gawker:

While former Lehman CEO Richard Fuld was testifying before the House Oversight Committee Oct. 6, CNBC reported he had been punched in the face at the Lehman Brothers gym after it was announced the firm was going bankrupt. CNBC and Vanity Fair contributor Vicki Ward said Fuld was attacked at the gym on a Sunday following the bankruptcy..

“From two very senior sources – one incredibly senior source – that he went to the gym after … Lehman was announced as going under. He was on a treadmill with a heart monitor on. Someone was in the corner, pumping iron and he walked over and he knocked him out cold. And frankly after having watched this, I’d have done the same too.”

So aparently Kimbo Slice and Dick Fuld have both gotten knocked out in under 14 seconds. The only unfortunate part of this whole mess is that Kimbo only took home a fraction of the $489 Million that Fuld made at Lehman Brothers.

    Kimbo only made $500,000 for his loss, Fuld made a cool $480 million!

    Now the most logical follow-up would be to put Kimbo Slice and Dick Fuld in the ring together as the main event at the next UFC in Vegas. this could be the biggest MMA money draw in history. get Don King to promote to complete the spectacle. Kimbo would represent the screwed American taxpayer, Fuld would represent everything that is wrong with banking and Wall Street today. and add a WWE element to it by making the winner the one that crawls out of the cage still conscious. No tap outs! imagine the box office receipts from this one!
