I got super pissed when I saw this thread. But then I thought..What can you do? He will soon get beaten badly and everyone will realize that he was all hype.

Does anyone else think that IF Thompson KO's him. The casual fans will think Thomson is the third coming of Christ?

I can't see Thompson KOing Kimbo, the guy is quite possibly one of the most retarded fighters I have ever seen, watch his fight against Aleks E. As much as I dislike Kimbo, I can't see any of the crap competition in Elite XC KOing him, I can see him getting his ass whooped by some fighters, like Silva, though.
I think Rodgers could KO Kimbo.

No he's not, and you are wrong. Kimbo is custom built for MMA. Big mouth, no skill and very famous. He, is going to be the poster fighter to the casual fan.

And he will be dropped by a real fighter, probably the first one he contends with. It's great!!!!

Gary Shaw is hustling.
EliteXC Heavyweights who can defeat Kimbo.........
Bigfoot, Buenetello, Carter Williams, Brett Rodgers, Ricco Rodriguez.

I agree with you on most of this except I do not think he is good for MMA in any form or fashion.

He influences dumb ass kids to get into streetfights and video tape it so they too will some day become a name in MMA. Kimbo is a HUGE step backward in the sport and I can't wait until he is exposed.

But you're right, for an upcoming MMA org with a shallow talent pool, Kimbo is a marketing godsend.

On that note, they're going to be somewhat hard-pressed to find another convincing can to put in front of Kimbo after this Thompson fight. In my mind his next bout would have to be against at least a Buentello or Rodgers.

Kimbo won't matter as much to EXC after this May 31st card. People will tune in to see Kimbo and catch a whole night of fireworks. It won't hurt as bad to have Kimbo wolluped in the next event by decent fighter.

Right........ and Heavy Metal influences kids to commit suicide.

Lawler, Frank Shamrock, Cung Le , Malipet, El Nino, Carano,
Villasenior, All the heavyweights I mentioned in my previous comment. Renzo, Diabate, Hector Lombard and I can name 10 more EliteXC fighters that are talented. The pool isn't shallow. As I said Gary Shaw is hustling.
But I do agree with you that Kimbo will be exposed.

My bad, I shouldn't have referred to it as a shallow talent pool, I actually enjoy the hell out of EXC!

What I should have said is that it is a shallow pool of "Names" that would be recognizable to the casual MMA fan (such as Lidell, GSP, Ortiz, etc.)

But no dude, comparing what Kimbo has done to "metal bands making kids commit suicide" or "pornography causing rapes" is a far cry from what Kimbo has done and is doing.

He did street fights, which are illegal, and very, very dangerous. And now he gets paid 6 figures a fight for his efforts. You won't convince me that it wouldn't lead street kids to think that this is a viable way off the streets. Or even a dumb ass, struggling MMA fighter that can't do much in a cage, but could kill your average punk with no training. Kimbo has an amateur boxing background to my understanding, and he made a 6 figure a fight carreer exploiting ignorant people that can't really fight (and he is still doing it to this day).
