Why did Kimbo not go to boxing??? Boxing is run by and older generations. My Dad is boxing fan (he's 60). They dont know what the hell "Youtube" is. MMA is a way YOUNGER fandbase (what Kimbo needs).

It cracks me up that you write him off with no more evidence than people who think he is a great fighter have.

So far, we have seen that Kimbo has good boxing. Thats it. Fools need to stop acting like he has no ground game, seeing as he is training with Bas.

At 6 sided lie, the Gannon fight was pure shit, Kimbo only took part in bare knuckle boxing matches up to that point, I think thats what he was expecting. He was winning till he got kneed in the face.

anyone who trains with Bas has a little something up their sleeve! When he starts getting better competition, we'll see.

the tank fight was a wast of time. Tank needed some cash!

The hype surrounding Kimbo is completely unfounded.

If he's so skilled at MMA these days, why isn't he fighting Antonio Silva, Brett Rogers, or Ricco Rodriguez?

He has been fed the sh*ttiest fighters I've seen climb into the cage. A 42 year-old tank, a 50-year-old Ray Mercer, and Bo (10-10) Cantrell... These guys shouldn't even be in a pro MMA organization (sorry, Tank), much less fighting a "contender".

On top of that, none of the people in his street fighting videos were worth a sh*t.

After Kimbo finally fights someone worth a damn we might be able to talk about his chin, his ground game, and prospect as a contender. Until then, we have nothing to go on but bullsh*t.

My thoughts:
None. Haven't seen Kimbo fight a real opponent yet.

Any thoughts on Kimbo succeeding or not at this point is purely speculation.
Can he be the heavyweight champion? It's possible with enough hard work.
Will he be a force to be reckoned with? Absolutely!
Has he faced any real MMA fighters as a professional? No, I don't think he has.

Some people think he can't learn wrestling soon enough to matter. For all I know, he could pick things up very quickly
and learn to apply them inside the cage. Some people can pick things up quicker than others. Is he one of those people? I don't know. I wish him the best of luck and hope
he has continued success!

^^Exactly, they need to throw some real competition out there before you could honestly say yes or no. I think they are playing it safe and milking it for every penny it's worth, which isn't really doing anything for Kimbos credibility. He fought a guy who took a glancing shot and hit the mat tapping and then Tank, who looked like frankenstein trying to find his ass in the dark.

So kneeing in the face isnt legal in MMA? Hmmm, thats weird. Its just funny how you say he was winning until he got kneed in the face, well in MMA knees are part of the game. Like I said before he will get fed cans and protected to hype his record up even more thats all

you made the point i wanted to make, and that is Kimbo is training with Bas. not only that, but from my understanding from interviews i;ve read, that training is taking place at LEGENDS gym. who trains at legends? WHO DOESNT TRAIN AT LEGENDS?!?! Rampage, Vera, Couture, Wanderlei, and a slew of other greats. on top of that, Bas is infatuated with kimbo. he really sees something in him and has been devoting a lot of time to training with kimbo.

don't misread me though. I agree that kimbo isn't about to take out any top tier UFC HW. It's gonna take some time. I do think he can handle the ground game. He wouldnt be pro at it, but i think bas is gonna train him to sprawl and brawl, defend from guard and get back on his feet. I see kimbo ultimately fighting like chuck or tito in the sense that they dont sweat opponents with ground game because they can generally get back up.

give it time kids... with better competition Kimbo could make something of himself. maybe they'll pit him against Antonio Silva, that'd be a reasonably good fight.
