Your dislike for Kimbo is so glaring that is prohibits you from admitting when facts are presented to refute your statements.

This thread has proven that:
  • Kimbo makes obscene money for potentially safe fights that allow him to develop as a fighter.
  • Kimbo is in this position due to his high level marketability.
  • Lidell trash talked Kimbo and Kimbo called out Chuck to settle it man to man.
  • Kimbo is not a promoter or matchmaker.
Who wouldn't try to earn as much as they possibly could for fighting? Every fighter is trying to do that. To call out Kimbo for being able to make good money based on years of fighting in the streets is dumbfounding.

And to expect a guy who was a total amateur, a street fighter, to fight top tier competition within his first three fights is ridiculous. I'm not so sure that Tank Abbot was the easiest fight out there for a rookie. Tank has tons of experience, and Kimbo rolled through the veteran.

Anyway, without any intended disrespect, as an outsider who read all of the posts in this thread, it is my "opinion" that jasvll has won every area of this debate multiple times.

Thanks for a fun read guys
Who's to say "stitch1z" should concede anything? Let him discuss what he chooses to. Hence the prase "forum". If you want to give advice, talk to yourself in the mirror.
