Right now kimbo is on the bottom rung right along the lines of lesnar and others like marlon simms, he has potential but any talks of how great is is should be best saved for a later time when and if he develops into a better MMA fighter.
This is the point that i am making. He needs to fight credible fighters. His first two fights were jokes because of the opponents. This is MMA so lets see his will, conditioning and skill challenged by worthy men. If he loses than there's work to be done. I however want to see where he stands in the ranks, especially since he is the one who coined the term "tappin is for bitches". Whole lot to live up to.

Noted. So in your opinion, you'd pit Kimbo with opposition who wasn't too far advanced. So as not to get to far ahead of himself. Inside the EliteXC roster who do you see that as being?

Sure as hell wouldn't be Antonio Silva.

People dig Slice, people want to see Slice KO a fool. With Silva, Slice would be horribly whomped.

In EliteXC the pickins are slim, but what about Ricco Rodriguez? Decent ground game and former UFC Champ.

I wouldn't mind seeing Kimbo face someone like Buzz Berry. Both guys like to slang some leather.

Alistair Overeem for me. Although too early for Kimbo, I was really impressed with Overeem at hw against the Head Hunter.

He would probably tool Kimbo standing with is for some reason I'm compelled to see. Anybody else think it's wrong that Kimbo Slice and James Thompson are main eventing mma's debut to the masses?

Calm down everybody, Kimbo would get destroyed by Couture, Crocop etc... Now Lesnar VS Kimbo would be a good fight. I'd put my money on Lesnar though....

Favourite Fighters:
1- Georges St-Pierre
2- Wanderlei silva
3- Anderson Silva
4- Frank Mir
5- Dan Henderson
6- Josh Koscheck
7- Karo Parisyan
8- Jason Miller
9- Jens Pulver
10- Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira

Forum Bets : 23-4

Just thought of something. Kimbo vs. Robert "The Beast" Sapp. Both suck very bad, and someone's bound to get KTFO!!!!!! If Kimbo were to lose, good God. He would be the worst mma fighter ever. Sapp currently holds that distinction. Or maybe in his trademark 2 on 1. Kimbo vs. Hong Man Choi w/ Mighty Mo!

Either guy would beat Kimbo 1 on 1 IMO.
