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.
yeah i hear u.. i HIGHLY HIGHLY doubt he will rush kimbo at the beginning. i mean what do you think the very FIRST thing randy is telling him over there in training? obviously kimbo's strongpoint is his punching power.. and thompson has that glass chin.. i can almost guarantee he will start the fight off walkin up, not rushing. time will tell tho...

and what do we bet with? these "credits" we have??

Time for some EliteXC heavyweights to get real vocal. It would do wonders for anyones MMA stature to be the first one to knock Kimbo out. If I was looking for that fame as a contender I'd be kicking up some major media dust, calling Kimbo out. Eventually the heavyweights will tire of the situation and look for that match.

Kind of ironic how a match with Kimbo is at this point more interesting than a heavyweight title match in EliteXC.

I don't think EXC even has a HW Title. lol. Bigfoot would have it, though. Easy.

No kidding? Ha that is funny Well they are a bit newer and growing rather quickly so that won't be an issue for long. Kimbo's star power will attract curiosity. As will Frank Shamrock, Cung Le, And Bigfoot. I see EliteXC being around for a while, especially since they're working with Strikeforce. And as long as they spoon feed Kimbo with guys like Cantrell he'll have a perfect record.

I will always stand by the fact that Sean Gannon, one of the most depressing fighters in UFC history, gave Kimbo his first defeat.

Still, if we're looking for a pro-loss in the cage, I'm going to say:

Ricco Rodriguez. (you really think they're going to feed Kimbo to Buentello or Bigfoot?) I think they're going to give him the former-UFC overweight champion, and Ricco's going to pound on him as if he were a bearded cheeseburger.

Kimbo's first loss?

Well...lol!His first loss will not be to James Thompson. I think that Thompson fighting Kimbo is hilarious and somewhat very stupid. We all saw Brett Rogers KO the piss out of Thompson on the Kimbo/Tank card. I personally think they should have put in Rogers to fight Kimbo. That would be a LOT more interesting to see. This will be another short first round KO again for Kimbo, on CBS no doubt. I believe that there are only a handful of fighters out there that might take him. Antonio Silva is a threat to beat Kimbo. Silva's chin hasn't been tested, and the massive power behind those tight, compact punches that Kimbo throws could overwhelm anybody. I believe Kimbo can KO anybody. Kimbo is improving in leaps and bounds.
Bas Rutten like I said...is turning Kimbo into an MMA wreckingball. Just a matter of time before we see Kevin Ferguson wearing a belt and he's only gonna get better.

.......I WANNA SEE KIMBO SLICE vs. FEDOR EMELIANENKO......

...A match for the ages...

Kimbo is just like Houston Alexander. He knocks out a few people and everyone thinks he is the best. It is obvious to people who know the sport he is not the best, or at least has not even come close to proving it, but people still seem to think he is the best. Then, he loses. And people realize that not only is he not the best, he kind of sucks. This happened to Houston and will very soon happen to Kimbo.

And at least Houston knocked out Alessio and Keith Jardine.
Kimbo has no bragging rights over his poor F-level compeditors. Let's see a real match.

KImbo vs Fedor a match for the ages? More like Kimbo's funeral, if you ask me. Damn, he KOs a way past his prime Tank Abbot and a guy no one has heard about, and suddenly he is a great MMA fighter, top 10 no doubt . I will ask Bas to train me too, maybe I'll be the next UFC HW champion .
