    Im almost positive Ive been seeing commercials for a Kimbo fight on broadcast TV, maybe NBC? Has anyone else seen this or am I seeing things?

    I don't keep up with that kind of fighting but you know what suprised me was he lost his first 2 matches. I guess that kinda fighting is diffrent from street fighting. Kimbo is a bad man. Go to Youtube and watch some of his street fights! God I would hate to make that man mad.:smile2::smile2::eek:oooh::embarassed:

    His first two matches in what? He is 7-1 for street fights and 3-0 in his Career MMA record.

    Well, Kimbo won last night. I was less than impressed. We all knew he had heavy hands, but his ground game will get him hurt badly against a good mma fighter. He has a looooong way to go. The fella he fought just wasn't all that great, in my opinion. Kimbo still looked like a fish out of water when he was taken down.

    She won, it was actually the best fight of the night. But she got pretty winded by the end. Kimbo looked like a joke, just proves that if he went against anybody from the ufc with talent, he'd be handled.

    Yeah best fight of the night was the ladies, Gina messed up that other girl good. If IM remembering right in the first fight they said that Brett Rogers? had beaten Kimbos opponent and was wanting Kimbo. It almost seems like they want to protect Kimbo for the publicity, ive never seen a ref break up a ground fight so quick to get them back on their feet, though I thought it was a good stop at the end. If Kimbo was in there with a submission guy I do believe he'd have his first loss real quick. 5 fights in 2 and a half hours?, UFC they are not. Also thought the Robbie Lawler fight was called too quick, I thought he had 5 minutes before having to make a decision.

    Id still love to see a brock lesnar - kimbo fight, I think Brock would destroy him, especially on the ground.

    I like him but he needs alot of training, I wasn't too impressed. He barely got by a very sloppy opponent. He's actually lucky they didn't stop it on him when he was saved by the bell. The true skilled heavyweights would destroy him.

    I was surprised when they said Kimbos opponent had beaten don frye and a couple other guys they said were "great or good or whatever", though they could have been past their prime. It doesnt seem like guys in MMA can stay on top too long until they are past their prime and someone else takes their place.

    i watched the kimo fight . yes hes sloopy , not very skilled. but i think hes only problem if age. hes to old . he will never have the stamina to make a bigger carer out of this. if he was young . yes. i think he has the tools . to LEARN the right skills . hes got the heart and ppower. i mean hes trying . but he will fade fast

    I agree, I think Lesnar could eat Kimbo for breakfast and still be hungry.:tounge_out: I think one big factor in this fight is that Kimbo had somebody who was bigger and stronger than him, so he couldnt just manhandle thompson like he has everybody else.
