I think it's an easy KO win for Kimbo. If Thompson tries to gong and dash against a guy that can hit as hard as Kimbo then this fight won't go 10 seconds.

Not so long time ago The Colossus was my favorite fighter, but then there was the disappointment... The only one chance that James has is to look for a ground game and somehow try to submit Kimbo. Unfortunately it is completely possible James to be out before that actually happens.

Kimbo first round KO. If the colossis actually gets him to the ground I think Kimbo will still submit him. I think Kimbo has a strong submission(chokout) ability at the level he's fighting.

If Colossis gets him down there will be no action, a bunch of vooing and Thompson will let Kimbo up I think. In that case Kimbo will have taken little damage and will KO thompson in the first or second anyway.

JT is a class act that always comes to fight, it's easy to ride the nuts of the latest fad but win/lose or draw the WarWagon remains steadfast in support for James. how many other fighters you've heard of calling out people by name and thanking a bandwagon for remaining dedicated? Or inviting his fans to meet his family and sit ringside and have dinner with them? That is JT and thats why the WarWagon is not your everyday bandwagon.

The Brotherhood remains strong no matter what.

Every fight JT is SUPPOSED to lose he wins - remember Frye and Yoshida? (unfortunately he loses some he is supposed to win)

I have JT by upset. We haven't seen how Kimbo reacts under pressure, and pressure is what JT brings.

Don't count JT out. He's been known to win the ones he wasn't supposed to. In either case, it should be a good fight.

We'll see if JT has improved on his game plan of taking opponents down and then we'll get to see if Kimbo has anything off his back.

*edit: lol posted that same time as you.

Kimbo should hype the PPV and when the fight begins just nail James with a punch and it should be over.

I think people are quick to forget how inexperienced Kimbo is. Like Brock Lesnar, I think Kimbo will get caught with something he's not really prepared for. No one is saying JT has the skill of Frank Mir, but Kimbo aint no Brock Lesnar either.

Kimbo has, and will always have a punchers chance. JT is better then Tank and Cantrell put together, and then some, despite his recent losses.

Frye and Yoshida "should" have defeated him as well.

Don't count James out guys, he rises to the occasion on a big stage.

but Kimbo aint no Brock Lesnar either.


First off, I would pick Kimbo to win 8 out of 10 against lesnar! Next I'm glad to see Kimbo fight somone who actually has skills and not out of his prime. JT is a great opponent but if he cant get kimbo on his back it wont be a long fight. But dont count Kimbo out on the ground. He is a very athletic and very strong man. he could stand up or reverse JT. His ground game is suspect without a doubt. but you can bet that Bas has prepared him for that. probably extensivly. I ahve to pick Kimbo, 2nd KO

Why do you think that Kimbo has such a big advantage over Lesnar?

You people are crazy if you really think Kimbo has power...... Just down load his street fights they show him pounding on untrained fighters with bare knuckles if he was so damm powerfull he would have KO'd those fools in the first minute......


WAR James Thompson

Have you ever seen Thompson fight? Apparently not if you dont think Kimbo can knock him out. This guy is training with Bas Rutten and has become a dedicated mixed martial artist and has come a long way since his street fighting days. If i had fists the size of Kimbos and hit Thompson he would probably drop, his hands are probably heavy enough even if you dont think he has power.
