The UFC veteran and now TUF 10 contestant speaks with 411mania for an exclusive interview. DISCLAIMER: This interview features vulgar and raunchy language. Please read with discretion.
Wes Sims is a man with a plan, to make it back to the big show that is the UFC and begin a career in adult entertainment. Just one of the many revelations when Sims granted 411mania with an exclusive interview last Thursday, a week before the highly anticipated debut of the 10 season of The Ultimate Fighter. Wes Sims has fought all over the world in every organization including the UFC, Pride, and the IFL. Sims is a member of the legendary Team Hammerhouse and currently trains under UFC fighter and Hall of Famer, Mark Coleman.
Jeffrey "The Vile One" Harris: So what is your background and what were you doing before you started doing the show?
Wes Sims: Hey this is Wes "The Whole Show" Sims, formerly known as "The Project." Professional fighter. Fought around the world. UFC veteran. I think the only UFC veteran to be main card coming back on the TV of The Ultimate Fighter. So, I'm looking to make it very interesting this season. Before I went on the show, I was living it up in the streets of Chicago, homeless. You shocked? You surprised? You still there with me, Jeffrey?
TVO: Were you hanging out with Mark Coleman and Phil Baroni at all?
WS: I was before I was homeless.
TVO: I hope now you've maybe upgraded to something better than a cardboard box.
WS: I've got an apartment now. The cardboard box? Uh-uh. Sleeping bag under the highway.
TVO: That sucks man. Obviously, you're done shooting the show, and the first episode hasn't aired yet so we can't talk too much about that. But what have you been doing since you finished shooting the show?
WS: Lots and lots of interviews . . . I really want to start working on my porn career. Yeah. Let's not elaborate that, let's not go into that. Just quote me, "I want to start working on my porn career."
TVO: Maybe the right person will read this interview.
WS: I just want to make sure because everybody knows I've got the largest crotch in the sport.
TVO: Is that such a good idea if you want to pursue a career in UFC or MMA to work in porn?
WS: Ah well, hell yeah, there's a lot of guys that do it. A lot of guys.
TVO: Who has done porn and fought in the UFC?
WS: Aaron Brink was a porn star. You got Dick Delaware. Kimbo Slice was a porn star before he was Kimbo Slice.
TVO: Yeah, he was the bodyguard of the MILF . . .
WS: Of the MILF Hunter, that's right. Frank Trigg did some gay shit.
TVO: Isn't he married?
WS: Whatever, I just know he did some gay pictures. 'Nuff said . . . do you want me to keep going? Give me enough time, I can think of some more.
TVO: Even though you yourself have been in this game a long time, you are not as big of a name as Kimbo Slice, who just has a few fights to his name, and this whole season has been marketed around Kimbo Slice. And a lot more people are probably going to be watching the show because of Kimbo Slice.'
WS: I won't argue that. You're right.
TVO: Does that bother you at all?
WS: I'm a show stealer. You'll have to wait and see. I don't care how they advertise it. I don't care what they do to get people to turn it on, end of the day, I want to know what people think.
TVO: I mean, clearly you are going to be on TV every week. But the more people tuning in for Kimbo Slice means the more people that will be that will be putting their eyeballs on you.
WS: At the 11 o'clock mark, when that episode is over, every episode people are going to be saying, "Wow. Wes Sims."
TVO: Are you training with Team HammerHouse right now?
WS: Team HammerHouse is all over the place. Baroni's in California. Randleman lives in Vegas, and Mark just flew out to Vegas last week to start his training camp. So I will be leaving to go to Vegas real soon right after this.
TVO: So who are you training with right now?
WS: Just my thing here in town, but I'm getting ready to leave and go out to Vegas.
TVO: How did you feel about your last three fights which you won?
WS: Just small little fights. Small shows. Just getting back in there, you know. I've got a lot more to prove in the UFC. A lot more to prove and a lot of things I want to do, and this season was awesome. Things went good there. I'm very excited to be back and I'm definitely going to throw some shit up.
TVO: I talked to Scott Junk who said no one was putting semen in anyone's food this season. Can you confirm that?
WS: I didn't put no semen in no one's food, and no one better have put no semen in my food. If anybody puts semen in my food, I'm pushing their shit in next time, quote me on that. I watch it, and I see somebody did something to something I ate, next time I see 'em, they're on blast. I'm pushing their shit in.
TVO: With like a baseball bat or something?
WS: Oh, uh-uh, uh-uh. The real thing. Yeah. I ain't going gay again, but I'll tell ya, I'm pushing their shit in.
TVO: Brendon Schaub was on the radio talking about Kimbo Slice being a great cook. Can you vouch for that?
WS: That man can cook a mean steak.
TVO: Would you invest in a steakhouse owned by Kimbo Slice.
WS: Yes, yes I would. I'm going to tell you one thing I wouldn't do.
WS: I wouldn't give one fucking penny to Roy Nelson if it had anything to do with food because that fat fuck ate everything he got his hands on. That pig-eating mother-fucker wolfed down, I mean he uprooted a shrub out back and ate it. I ain't ever seen anything like it. I grew up on a farm, and we didn't have pigs that hungry.
TVO: I guess he's called "Big Country" for a reason.
WS: Fat Ass! We call him Fat Ass. That man has a growth over his belt line that at any point could erupt! Have you ever seen Total Recall?
TVO: Yeah man, I love that movie.
WS: You remember, "AHH! QUAID!" That's a man! That's a man under his shirt! There's another human being in there. Ridiculous fat. Roy, go on a diet.
TVO: He's with a lovely lady.
WS: Newsflash, she ain't in it for your appearance. That ridiculous haircut and that gut? Either he makes a lot of money and she takes it, or she's cheating on him. Quote me . . . I'm just telling ya, quote me, he either makes a lot of money and she takes it or she's cheating on him.
TVO: Being alone in the house, and its uncomfortable except all the alcohol and food you want. But what do you do to keep yourself mentally in the house so you don't lose it?
WS: I didn't. I fucking lost it many times.
TVO: Sorry to hear that.
WS: You'll just have to wait and see.
TVO: Did you guys have to wank it a lot?
WS: There was no wanking. I tell ya, there was cameras everywhere. There was just no opportunity. I wasn't doing it unless I was getting paid for it.
TVO: So basically you guys knew if you were caught doing it, SpikeTV would be filming it?
WS: Oh yeah. If you're gonna wank it, you better got paid for it.
TVO: How do you handle that?
WS: It sucks! It sucks, how could it not? Another fact, there ain't nobody I could look at in that house and wanna go yank it.
TVO: So do you leave and go back home and find a piece of ass to unleash all that pent up torment?
WS: Are you kidding me? I flew a chick out there and I started beating the fuck out of her immediately. I had my girl fly out and I fucked the shit out of her in the hotel. I locked us in the hotel; we didn't get out for an entire day.
TVO: Did you paralyze her or what?
WS: Oh my God. At first go was horrible for myself because it was just ridiculous. But after that, I about ripped her guts out. I tell ya one thing . . . if I was someone waiting to get her kidney or something, I'd be dead because her shit's all bruised up.
TVO: So it's kind of like you were pushing in and taking things out back on the way out?
WS: Oh the shit was fucking -- yeah, it was a mess.
TVO: I'm sure she'll forgive you if she really cares.
WS: It makes me sick talking about it.
TVO: But being a veteran and going into the show, was there anything, and knowing you'd be training with Rampage or Rashad Evans, was there anything you specifically wanted to work on and improve?
WS: Oh for sure, you wait and see, however much training they show on tape, I have no idea, but the training sessions were so intense. They were awesome. It was really a really, really good experience and I wouldn't take anything back. I mean it was great. I loved it.
TVO: So what's the dirtiest thing you've ever seen Phil Baroni do?
WS: Man, I just think some of those internet pictures where his pants are hiked down well below his belt line just above his incredibly small penis. And it just makes me sick. I can't imagine some of the shit he's done. I can only assume, I can only assume he's had unprotected gay sex for money. And quote me for that, please.
TVO: What if Phil reads that?
WS: There's nothing better than an inter-camp struggle, there's nothing better than that.
TVO: Thoughts on the fight with Tito Ortiz fighting your trainer, Mark Coleman at UFC 106?
WS: I will say one thing. Mark's going to beat him up worse than Jenna [Jameson] took it in Jungle of Love 8.
TVO: Anyone you would like to thank or give a shout out to?
WS: My buddy Mike Davis, over in Chicago. Chris Thomas. Randy Harris. My trainer, Mark Coleman. Everybody that was making the calls to me when I was out on the streets.
TVO: thanks for your time, and good luck with your other interviews.
