No. 10 - The Strange Journey of Kimbo Slice
For those who don't remember, Kimbo Slice was an Internet sensation who became famous for winning street fights. This led to him receiving a contract in 2007 from geniuses at the MMA organization EliteXC, who figured he could be their meal ticket to success. You know, because if you can win street fights in videos posted to YouTube you can undoubtedly win fights against MMA pros in the ring, right? Wrong, but this still didn't stop more geniuses at CBS from reaching an agreement with EliteXC to air their Kimbo Slice fights in prime-time. Naturally, Kimbo underperformed in his first fight (but still won in controversial fashion), and there was much concern from everyone involved that he was not good enough to be showcased against real MMA guys. Sure enough, in his next fight he was matched up against an unknown replacement fighter named Seth Petruzelli...and was knocked out in 14 seconds. This brought an end to the Kimbo Slice sham and EliteXC as a whole.
