Kimo Leopoldo Interview (he's not dead)

Not long after reports contradicting news of Kimo Leopoldo's death surfaced, he took the time to tell the listeners of Ringside Report Radio that he was indeed still alive. Download this podcast where he along with his manager sets the record straight with Dave Simon and Kevin McKough on the Team990.

 

Reported death

Various media outlets reported that Leopoldo had died from complications from a heart attack at age 41.[7] Kevin Iole of Yahoo Sports reported on his Twitter that Leopoldo's publicist refuted reports that Leopoldo was in Costa Rica and instead was seen alive in Orange County the night before.[8] From his Twitter he later also claimed "Also, from Kimo's publicist, apparently he was sleeping and woke up to learn of reports of his death." and "From what I've been told, and this is not finalized, Kimo will hold a conference call tomorrow."

At a July 21, 2009 press conference Leopoldo denied anyone close to him created the rumor, he also expressed his desire to return to fight one last time.[9]

 

Kimo Leopoldo (January 4, 1968) is a retired German mixed martial artist, often billed as simply Kimo. He made his MMA debut at UFC 3 in 1994 losing to Royce Gracie by submission. Kimo's fighting style has been described as freestyle, with a mixture of striking and grappling techniques.[citation needed] He was erroneously credited with a black belt in Taekwondo in his Ultimate Fighting Championship debut at UFC 3 (it is unclear whether Kimo or fight promoters originated this claim).[1] Kimo is well known for his Christian beliefs: he sports many religious tattoos, and entered the arena at UFC 3 carrying a large cross on his back.[2]

Interview with TJ Grant

DONG HYUN KIM TO FACE TJ GRANT ON JULY 11TH

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Las Vegas NV (USA) -- A dislocated shoulder, suffered in training, has forced welterweight standout Jonathan Goulet to withdraw from his bout against Dong Hyun Kim on the preliminary card of UFC® 100 on July 11th. But Canada will still be represented in the bout, as Nova Scotia’s TJ Grant will step in to face Kim at the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas, Nevada.

 

A purple belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, Grant made quite an impression in his UFC debut in April, as he pounded out an impressive three round split decision win over seasoned competitor Ryo Chonan. Now 14-2 as a pro, the 25-year old Grant is eager to move further up the welterweight ranks by scoring a victory over the talented Kim.

 

Dong Hyun Kim is a hero back home in his native South Korea, and the unbeaten (11-0-1, 1 NC) “Stun Gun” is rapidly building a United States fanbase as well after wins over Jason Tan and Matt Brown. A fourth degree black belt in judo, Kim hopes to keep the “0” at the end of his record on July 11th.

St-Pierre talks candidly about the possibility of fighting Anderson Silva in Toronto or Olympic Stadium in Montreal. Download the podcast to hear from the champ before he continues building his legacy at UFC 100.

Georges, Dave and Kevin

"Being part of UFC 100 – it’s a great honor for me because I know it’s going to be a historical show. Even though the focus is not strictly on my fight like it was last time when I fought BJ Penn, it makes this fight even more dangerous. Thiago Alves is the greatest challenge that I had in my career – he’s gonna be the toughest guy that I fought so far, and that’s what makes him very dangerous is he’s a very confident guy, he’s a gentleman, and he doesn’t have to talk trash. So even though he doesn’t talk trash, I know he’s going to come out very strong and try to hurt me really bad early in the fight. However, I will be very well prepared. I try to focus on what I’m going to do to him instead of focusing too much on what he’s going to do to me."
