Toronto Mike Verified as the defacto Toronto Mike

@James Edgar

Not my scene, either. I knew the name, but didn't know why.

Take one part Clint Eastwood from Every Which Way But Loose, add a splash of Mr T/Clubber Lang from Rocky 3, mix in a dash of Mike Tyson and you've got Kimbo Slice.

He was noticed by UFC et al by his series of bananas street fights he did for dough back in Miami around 2003 or so. Search some of this stuff on YouTube and you'll get the drift.
