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).
I hear you. And I don't condone that kind of behavior. I think that stupid people emulating MMA fights on the streets is a good way to get them selves to the hospital.

But reguardless of his roots, don't blame Kimbo for people being influenced to do so. Look I ain't even a fan of the dude. I see him losing when his first real fight, but he is not responsible for other peoples actions. Reguardless of what they are. If such is the case than Arnold Swartzenegger is responsible for kids shooting eachother because he made the Terminator. This issue is timeless.

Alright than who is responsible for Kimbo doing it? UFC? No Kimbo made his own dumb ass decision to do so.

I give you that it's not Kimbo's fault if other people emulate that, but I do think it's bad for MMA, and I think it sucks that he's rewarded for the behavior.

Yeah, it looks like we'll have to agree to disagree on a couple of points when it comes to that issue. We could probably go back and fourth on it all day. You made some good points on it. Repped.

Maybe we could send some emails to ESPN and let them know how all of us feel about that idiot being on the cover.
