Kimbo vs. ????

After Thompson, who's next for Kimbo? Hopefully Gannon will man up and fight Kimbo again. Even though he doesn't stand a chance, I don't think he wants to look like a *****. Maybe then after, Kimbo vs. Angle, Lesnar, CroCop, Tyson in that order. Who do you guys think should be next for Kevin?

Thumbs up

I know that Kimbo has an incredible knockout power, and superfast hands, but with the names that he's defeated in elitexc it's no wonder that people doubt his ability to smother his division. A couple of fighters that would earn him respect and also test his will and conditioning would be
1) Paul "Head Hunter" Buenatello
2) Antonio "BigFoot" Silva

Maybe than we will see his all around cage capability those would be a test and showcase of his skills

Kimbo has little skill J.P. his boxing is decent he has heavy hands, but we have seen no ground game, his trainers have said that he just started working his ground game so I am sure there is little to be shown. Against a top 10 HW Kimbo would be put through jiu jitsu hell and tap or get KO'ed by a better striker. 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.

I truly believe Lesnar would have beaten Mir, if not for the refs bad call. Well, both Kimbo and Lesnar said that they want the best right off the bat. So give Kimbo, Cro Cop, Tyson, Angle, hell maybe even Couture!

What are you talking about? None of the guys you mention for Lesnar fight for the UFC. Tyson has never had an mma match and neither has Angle so how are they the best?

Those 2 would embarrass Kimbo badly, especially Big Foot.

Forget about Sean "The Cannon" Gannon...Kimbo needs to face the real deal, Shannon "The Cannon" Ritch...

Heath Herring-Josh Barnett-Roxy Modafferi-Kazushi Sakurauba-Murrillo Bustamante-Tatsuya Kawajiri-Megumi Fujii-Dan Henderson-Antonio Rodrigo Nogueria-Kazuyuki Fujita-Hideki Kadowaki

Everyone wants to see a rematch between Kimbo and Gannon, so they should go at it. Dunno who Shannon Ritch is. I was just trying to think of weird matchups for Kimbo to fight. Simply because he's a ''freakshow'' of sorts. Random fights with him are intriguing.

Well he could give it a go, seeing as how he's done with boxing. Tyson vs. Kimbo would be cool. Kimbo has said he wants to fight Tyson anyway. In an mma match, winner: Kimbo. In a boxing match: Tyson.
