I heard that he's training @ Extreme Couture w/ Randy, Forrest Griffin, Shawn Tompkins, Mike Pyle, Jay Hieron, Gray Maynard, & others.

Has anyone else heard this?

That would be smart of him, he needs wrestling in his fight against Mercer, he isn't going to outstrike Mercer. A smart move by him, I want to see if he'll do anything in MMA, I'm kind of interested in him.

On Sherdog's Beatdown they mentioned it a couple weeks back. Think Randy said something about it to T.J. and he was kinda suprised. The guy is gonna be a main draw on the CFFC so he better be training.

Yeah, wrestling would be handy, but I think Kimbo would feel like he was pussin' out if he took it to the ground. What would be useful though, would be to learn how to utilize the Thai clinch. He could destroy him with strikes without playing Mercer's game.

Yeah, that would definately work against a boxer. Kimbo's got some skills, wasn't his brother a pro boxer?

I really hope Mercer is training hard for this fight. I like Kimbo as a streetfighter, but I don't think he'll have a place in the world of MMA.

Watch him be UFC HW champ in one year.

I think he was kidding, but Mercer is probablly just doing it for the money. In the press conference didn't Mercer say that he was fighting in the UFC? He doesn't even know what organization he's fighting in, so I'm sure he's not taking it very seriously. Kimbo by sub. rd 2.
