You're right that 2-2 isn't a great record, but if you look at his opponents it's understandable. Props to Keith Hackney, but I think that Kimo is still the better fighter of the 2 of them.

I was watching the Gracie/Kimo fight again and I realized that Kimo actually injured Royce during the fight (about 40 seconds in he kicks Royce hard in the leg) and he is limping a little bit afterwards. It didn't keep Royce from dominating the fight, but it shows that his strength and balance (due partially to a low center of gravity from his stance) make him a hard guy to grapple with.

Grappling doesn't matter in a fight with Bas, for the most part. So I would have to go with Bas by KO, round 1 or 2 (early).
