Listening to the Elite XC Kimbo-Thompson press conference, it was amusing to me how Thompson got like 2-3 questions and the rest of the time was Kimbo and Gary Shaw. Thompson is a complete afterthought in the promotion of this fight, but it sounds like he is taking it very seriously:

I would like to see Thompson go in there and knock Kimbo out. I would be better yet if he shot in and took him down and submitted him, but I highly doubt that will happen. The only problem with Kimbo losing is Gary Shaw will then find guys with no serious threat to Kimbo just to get him more wins, and try to hype him back up.

yeah well the media only cares about what they think the general populace cares about so they obviously get it wrong almost EVERY time... but ya know Thompson has been around i doubt the lack of media exposure is effecting him mentally, so i don't really see how it matters

The previous post should have read:

I dunno man, I'm just really hoping that Ferguson is the real deal. It's going to take a long time. Like I said before it's not his fault he got all this hype, he's a victim of others' expectations.

I hope Kimbo knocks Thompson's head off his shoulders.

If Thompson does beat Kimbo it will do more to hurt EXC, than Kimbo. EXC has put most of their eggs in Kimbo basket. Its only Fergusons 3rd fight and losing to JT in your 3rd MMA fight is not that huge of an upset. JT is a game fighter with good all around skills. i would like to see JT get Kimbo to the ground, just to get a look at how well "el guapo" has prepared him for that.

This thread should be titled "WHEN Thompson Ruins the Party". can we honestly say that Kimbo has a chin? can we say he has a ground game? in all honesty we cannot say either way, and it is those uncertainties mixed with the experience of JT that makes me believe JT will win.

I'm willing to do an avatar bet with you on this fight. Kimbo is not losing to James Thompson.

I really hope Kimbo does loss and I never wished anyone would loss. I really think he is a the wrong image we want people to see for MMA and Shaw is pretending he is the greatest things since Fedor. It bothered me even more when I went to blockbuster the other day and the guy next to me had a Tapout hat on and guy behind the counter asked him if he was MMA fan. He replied very much so. I kid you not he said have you seen that guy with those YouTube fights Kimbo he is going to own all the fighters at HW he has already beat 2 of the best they had to offer. So I stopped and said he hasn't fought anyone even ranked in the top 40 of MMA HWs. Its known he doesn't have a ground game and his chin is untested. My bet is there are a lot of people in lower weight classes that would not only beat him but destroy him so you can only image what a good HW MMA fighter would do. You shouldnt buy in to the BS Shaw is putting out there and do some research yourself before making others around you stupid of the truth. (let me say ahead of time I a bigger guy and a x-cop so I have this look about me) The guy looks at me and doesn't know what to say then out of no where he ask me if I didnt mind telling him who are the best fighters in MMA. I spent 30 mins explaining MMA, who is at the top, and why Kimbo and Shaw are bad for the sport to this guy in the front of blockbuster.
