Kimbo is a beast and he will show it against Thompson

I'm usually a mild Kimbo "supporter" in the sense that he shows potential, BUT

Shadow boxing next to Bas Rutten was a bad idea. Rutten was about twice as fast as him, and his technique was about twice as good (if not 10X) Those knees Kimbo was throwing looked sad as ****. If I were a wrestler or JJ guy against him the instant he threw a knee like that I'd push his base off and take him down.

When they started hitting the focus mitts Kimbo threw a right straight and left his jaw hanging wide open. I sure hope that was just a fluke cuz an overhand right counter would have took him off his feet.

I hope he puts on a great show against Thompson, and I dont think Thompson has the striking ability to pick up on what needs to be picked up on quick enough, but he is a step up in competition from Tank and that's good.

Cmon Jackelope, did you watch the whole video? IT was Kimbos day off and they had a publicity traing camp public welcome kinda stuff. So cut the guy a break if he wasnt going at 100 %. I'm not trying to flame you but I wanted to say somthing. And to top it off I'm sure Bas was going all out for the camera, not a bust on him just saying. I love that these guys are working together.

You might as well crown him now. A lot of people look impressive while they train; and that doesnt mean it translates in to the cage. Until he beats someone top 10 I will not be impressed.

I agree with Jackalope.....

It's all good... I'm not flaming Kimbo, I'm just saying he showed some sloppy technique in there. I did watch the whole video, but if you're trying to look good I wouldn't suggest anybody to throw punches next to Bas Rutten.

Plus, no matter if it's your day off or not leaving your chin hanging wide open is a bad idea.

Does his training consist of punching large sheets of glass?

Personally I would like to see Kimbo Lose, I don't dislike him or anything.. I just think there is too much hype about a guy who really does not have any skill plus it would be a kick in the teeth for CBS
