You might not think so, but look, almost everyone on this forum knows who Kimbo is, and I betcha a lot of people who don't follow MMA know who the hell Kimbo is. Kimbo fought people in the street, so what? Wasn't Chuck involved in a brawl in a bar where he was, quote; "Had his back against the wall just knocking guys out right and left." ? I don't understand why you're angry at Kimbo for trying to make a living with what he thinks he knows best. Jesus Christ, the guy has 2 MMA fights under his belt (I think the Mercer one didn't count) and you people are already undermining him.
Bro, it's just my opinion. I don't think he's shown any skill to speak of other than a sloppy guillotine, some mediocre boxing, and heavy hands. I also think his attitude, personna, and background are bad for MMA. And I think he's had easier competition than most amateur fighters have to start out with.
Think what you want, I'm not trying to convince you of anything. But this is what I believe.
