Kobe's Got a Plan It Seems...


Don't look now, but it appears that Kobe Bryant and UFC President Dana White are in the preliminary stages of talks that could lead to a career in ultimate fighting for the Lakers' superstar. After sitting down with Stu Jackson and reviewing game film, White was said to be very impressed with Kobe's ability to throw an elbow from just about any upright position (See Mike Miller, Manu Ginobili, Marko Jaric, and most recently Kyle Korver). This is something that you don't see much in mixed martial arts (The standing elbow), and something that fans of MMA would certainly like to see in the ring. Rumors are buzzing that Kobe's entrance into the Octagon could entail a 3-fight contract, which is slated to begin shortly after the Lakers do everything in their power to not make the playoffs (These guys may not win another game). At 220 lbs., Kobe will be fighting in the heavyweight division, and after a warm-up fight with Tim Sylvia, he plans to take these furious "Unintentional" elbows straight for the new title-holder Randy Couture. Just think how sweet it will be to hear Bruce Buffer retardedly say "Kobe 'The Mamba' Bryaaaaaaant."
