The first person to shoot in and secure a take down will be the first to beat him. Don't see it happening for a while because Gary Shaw, unlike Dana White & Brock Lesnar, want to protect there assets. He'll just fight crap fighters and improve that record.
Couldnt agree more. Kimbo is a great street fighter and has good hands....God knows I wouldnt fight him! But a real fighter will defintly outclass him. Hes 34 years old hes not going to be a stud MMA fighter in a few years of training. I personally think hed a been better off going the boxing route.

Please don't compare Chuck Liddell and Tim Sylvia to Kimbo Slice. Both Tim and Chuck can defend takedowns, wrestler, and Tim can work off his back. Both have been Champions.

Kimbo slice has faught Tank Abott and Bo Cantrell. There is zero comparison. He's outstruck sloppy strikers. That's like me and my buddies beating a group of grade 3's in hockey. Who cares?

who cares about what exactly Kimbo or something else

ive seen his street fights his work ethic looks grueling
i just like to see him fight sluggers and brawlers... hed prollly get Brock Lesnered if he fought some people with good ground skills as to his take down defense i dunno i think he could have good take down defense with the team he has ... i wouldnt sleep on Kimbo as i think u are .... he deff gets a crowd goin... and i think has great potential Mentally i dont think there is scarring this guy and his Pride would help him endure alot... but i want to see him fight someone with credentials even if they are washed up .. or in their prime i really want to see how he would fare i mean it takes 1 punch to end a fight and YES he has accurate punching.. along with powerful shots

My Top 10:
Fedor
Henderson
GSP
Lyoto Machida
Aleks E
Josh Barnett
Big Nog
BJ Penn
Anderson Silva
Cro Cop Musosi and bada hari

His street fights were against dudes that didn't know what they were doing. Kimbo Slice is huge, and has powerful hands. When he fights a dude that can take a punch, and actually throw back at him he'll be in trouble.

Can anyone forget how bad he looked against the Cannon? The only legit fighter he's ever faught? Even calling Gannon legit is tough. Kimbo gets smoked against anybody in the Top 25. I think a dude like Brad Imes would smoke him.

'Street Legit' - are you serious? That fat latin dude, the dude with the mean afro, the roided bouncer guy? Those were all big hacks with no talent or skill.

Kimbo Slice will lose once he fights someone 'legit'. How people believe his hype scares me.

ive been a Kimbo fan before the hype and bandwagoning {bandwagoning ISNT bad just a point im makn} how bout u look at the "badasses" hes ran through... guys im sure you wouldnt fight just for pride and money.... Kimbo has alot of potential and learns from the best hes not the old Kimbo u can just tell by each fight.. true hes not a legend in the ring but in the streets just in fighting he is... and his hunger for money and to Keep his pride is a dangerous thing in a fighter that is in MMA where they pay big bucks..... i guess we can only tell when he fights a legit MMA fighter.... but u cant denie that the transiton from street fighting to MMA helps alot when u got either the best or second best Fighter in the world coaching you and teaching you and pushing you... i just think that u might have something against the man he's made leaps and bounds just by looking at his training regement... and if he keeps it up its very well possible he can hang with the best... take down defense isnt that hard when fighting alot of the heavyweights out there....

My Top 10:
Fedor
Henderson

It seems like a lot of people don't want Kevin to do good. I think he will continue to win and surprise a lot of people along the way.

The guy can fight, and the thing that makes him very dangerous is the fact that he is hungry and has the eye of the tiger.

I don't see Kevin loosing until he runs into a guy like Nog.
