Kimbo Slice got famous for a street fight that he engaged in prior to becoming a professional Bellator fighting sensation. Some of that street-ness and smack talk ability transferred over to his character and style as a fighter who will forever go down as one of the best MMA figures we've probably ever had.
So when it was time for him to do an AMA through social site Reddit, the company was essentially giving the people exactly what they wanted (and maybe what they didn't know they needed).
