Jeff Monson calls out Kimbo Slice

Add Jeff Monson to the list of mixed martial arts veterans who think Kimbo Slice is overrated.

In a video circulating YouTube, the former number one contender for the UFC heavyweight title demands that a bout between him and the polarizing figure be promoted by EliteXC President Gary Shaw.

"Make this guy fight a real fighter," Monson said. "The guy is 2-0 (Editor's note: Slice is 3-0), hasn't fought anybody. I figured the best way to reach him is on YouTube, since the [expletive] doesn't read."

Former UFC light-heavyweight champion Chuck Liddell has also criticized Slice, who did not shy from responding to the "Ice Man" with a video on YouTube.
