TUF 17 Contestant Collin Heart Says He was the Kimbo Slice of His Hometown
Posted by Jeffrey Harris on 01.26.2013



MMAjunkie recently spoke with TUF 17 contestant Collin Hart. Here are some highlights:

Hart on how he was local version of "Kimbo Slice" in Sebastopol, California:"I was pretty well known for it in my high school. I was always taking on two or three people at a time. To find challengers, I would have to make up something crazy like put one arm behind my back or take on multiple opponents. At the time, I guess I was pretty much the local Kimbo Slice."

Hart on his quick move to professional MMA after two amateur fights: "There was really no question or any second thought about it. That's what I've been wanting to do for a little while. I was excited to get the offer so fast. Some people had to train for years before a coach would let them fight. I was happy to jump on the opportunity."

Hart on why he loves MMA: "It's a lot of fun. I love the sporting aspect of the chess match. It's like working out, playing chess and skydiving at the same time. I've always been into it. I have the determination. I've put in the time. I have the heart. All I needed was the opportunity, and I have that now."
