It's definitely not up to par with the PRIDE FC ref cam quality, but nonetheless it still is pretty cool.

tank got punched in the back of the head a lot, kimbo would have won that fight imo but he needs to control hiself a lot better, his last fight he came down with a punch to the back of the head when the guy was tappin to

What do you expect the dude is a backyard brawler what proffessional do you know that would invite random guys between 19-45 to come to his back yard and fist fight him I knew he would beat Tank but atleast learn this is a sport with rules not a prison fight.

Anyone else think this fight was a little disappointing? Dont get me wrong Kimbo took it to him, but I thought Tank would have more offense.

Tank is known to drink shortly before fights wich I think is crazy I think he is at a point where win or loose he fights just to get a payday.

disapointing fight really untill there is someone in there that is a half decent fighter we still know nothing about him. common tank i think only hit him with one punch....

imo there was no way to win this fight for tank, BUT Kimbo needs to play by the rules, he hit tank in the back of the head tryed to push the ref out of of way, throw aomething into the crowed imo kimbo need to shape up or go back to fightin in the backyards of his friends

kimbo can be a great fighter but needs to clean it up

Wow that camera was terrible. I don't think Tank was throwing it, the dudes like 43, in horrible shape and he was never a great fighter.

Exactly i mean any one that thought Tank had more then a punchers chance in this match at his age and weight would need to rethink some things. He was obviously some one to feed to Kimbo. They needed a guy to stand in front of him and throw and thats what they got.

Look at Tank before the fight in the looker room and he looks like he is on his way to his execution. And the announcers were so incredibly bias it was hard to watch (that includes in the Ricco Rodriguez fight in which they threw Ricco under the bus pretty much the whole fight and then he almost won the fight)

My favorite thing was when he knocked out Tank they started saying "Kimbo is for real!!!" It was the best comedy I had all night. Kimbo is a tough guy and has some good power but after beating an out of shaped too old Tank he is for real?When was Tank established as the measureing stick for fighters?
Doesn't make too much sense to me just give Kimbo a real fight now and stop making him into a "show".
