If Kimbo gets by Thompson then a fight with Nelson in either Elite or IFL is likely. Click Here

Now that is a match up i'd like to see, deffinitly a good measuring stick for where Kimbo is at...I'd have to say Nelson takes this one, but i wouldn't be surprised if Bas's training makes me eat those words.

When he KOs Thompson, this will make perfect sense....Nelson has got a strong chin, decent hands, and is decent on the ground too....seems like the perfect guy for Kimbo after he KOs James.

Kimbo is not ready for Roy, YET, Bas will definately have him ready in the next year but if it's in the next 6 months Roy by stoppage!

Too bad Elite XC won't even put Kimbo up against their best heavyweight (Antonio Silva)

Way too early to fight Bigfoot IMO, Bigfoot would do fairly well in the UFC HW division i think, and when his contract is up with elite i wouldn't be surprised if Dana and the Fertitas gobble him up to add to their lacking division.

Except he is massive and could find it hard to make 265, i know he was over 300lbs at 1 point but not sure what he is now, he has looked smaller of late so maybe he could make it, that tumor may have weighed a few lbs

Ive been on the bigfoot bandwagon for a while now and really think he would beat Fedor and alot of top HW's

Bigfoot made 265 in his last fight vs Ricco. He can do, although its tough for him.

This would be a great chance to get some legitimacy but its going to be a very tough fight. I need to see how quickly hes developing before i pick a winner in this one but tonight should be a good way for me to see.

Silva took a split decision from Ricco and now he can beat Fedor? You must be joking right? If not can I get some of what ever you're smoking.

From a promotion standpoint this fight doesn't make much sense. Nelson has great wrestling ability, and strong ju jitsu. Bad match up for Kimbo. I doubut Nelson spends time trying to KO Kimbo after watchign him make mistakes against Thompson.

I would try to Lure Tyson to the ring to fight Kimbo. People would watch that. Yes, it's circus but we all love the circus now and again. WE all want to see a little "Crazy" once in a while.
