We should all flood Thompson with e-mails:

"TAKE THIS FIGHT TO THE GROUND! USE YOUR WRESTLING! LISTEN TO RANDY'S GAMEPLAN!"

Hahahahaha, imagine he follows the gameplan and after he wins the fight, in the post fight interview he says "Thanks to all the people form the
MMAForum, I couldn't have done it without you", it would be ******* great (yeah I should probably go to sleep, I know).

Man, Ricco was a lot more vocal about it than Antonio. And I don't think either of them are going anywhere. Shaw wants an exciting HW division and though his last performance didn't really measure up to others, bigfoot usually brings it.

Logically, I would agree with you, but James Thompson is notorious for "gong and dash", which is basically run across the ring swinging at your opponent. That approach could very well get him KO'd (and does quite often), but it's like his trademark.

IF Thompson takes it to the ground, I don't see how Kimbo can learn enough to survive a bigger, stronger wrestler in such a short time. I mean MOST semi-successful MMA fighters come from some form of groundfighting background, be it wrestling or BJJ. Kimbo just started picking those aspects up (maybe) about a year ago.

If I had faith that Thompson would take this to the ground I would go all in on him and probably make a lot of money. I think that Thompson will unsuccessfully try to make a statement on his feet... Again. And that's the only reason I fear him losing against Mr. Ferguson.

Oh I know, Bifoot was upset, F*** Ricco was livid and was all about bitching to who ever would listen.
