"The stuff that Kimbo Slice does, this mixed martial arts, I'm sorry, it looks like savagery to me," Kornheiser said.
To which Wilbon replied, "It is. It is savagery. ... It's so brutal, Tony, it is so savage, that when there's a knockout and somebody's on somebody pounding him and the refs have to come in, I can't watch it."
It's too bad that the PTI guys feel that way. I can live with it if prominent members of the sports media want to call Kimbo Slice's little corner of the MMA world "savagery." This is, after all, a guy who got famous beating people up in back alleys. But conflating Slice with the rest of MMA is silly, and MMA is no more savage a sport than boxing, which Kornheiser and Wilbon endorse.
