This fight was set-up for kimbo to win as probably everyone knows, the fight was stopped pre-maturly although another 10 seconds iim sure he would of been out, but, kimbo was taking elbows and shots to the head at the end of the second round for like a minute straight, any other person on the ground taking those shots, and the fight would have been called. to be honest i think kimbo is overratted, he has got good punching power but punches are only a small part in MMA, through him in with Mir or Nog, he would get his ass handed to him, can't wait till he fights again, hope he loses.

Yeah let's throw Kimbo in there with the UFC champ after only 3 fights, that's an excellent idea. Someone needs to lay off the Haterade.

How bored do you have to be to sit around and rant about how bad Kimbo is. Here is the facts. Kimbo is a training fighter just like every other fighter out there. The only reason anyone even talks about him is because his fanbase is so big. In essence all of you bored little children and grown men hate this man because so many people like him. Maybe there were errors in judgement from the ref during the fight but that is not his fault. The same people that trash Kimbo will praise James "RoboEar" Thompson who if I am correct is a former debt collector. Do you people think he made phone calls to collect those debts? The point is these men are fighters and regardless of how mad it makes you weirdos they will continue to fight and I am sure would love to take an open challenge from any of you.

So you hate on Kimbo because other people build up his hype as he stays humble, trains and tries to improve as a fighter? Interesting logic

No, Thomson was winning that fight and would of won, the fightr was stopped pre-mature. Any jui-jitsu fighter would destroy kimbo. he has a long way to go. he hasent proved anything to me yet, he beart Tank Abott, no impressed. and little bitches like you who go for the fan favourites, and ride the band wagon. Kimbo will never be a champion and if is does, he will not have it for long.

Notice though how your response had absolutely nothing pertaining to what he said.

i agree his comment was about his actions , and his outlook, on his spot in the mma . . slice has never said that he is the next big thing. . thats the media. ref stoppage or not.. frank said nothing about if he should of won or lost. . he was giving him cred on his conduct and work ethic

Hang on a second, let me go look for my RedRider wagon, still lookin...still lookin, hmm must have misplaced it. I just think he deserves the respect any other fighter that trains gets. His hype is rising faster than his training, again not his fault.
