Tank never had a prime. He has always been a no-talent, no-heart, no-cardio brawler. He just used to fight worse fighters, so he won occasionally. Kimbo beats him no matter what era.

Not sure why the hate on Kimbo. He has never said he is the best. He always says he is learning and hopes he can compete with the best so what is everyones one problem with him.

This man is living the American dream. He has gotten himself off the streets all by self promotion, decided to take the sport serious by getting a trainer, the first 2 people he fought sucked but Thomson is a step up from them so lets see what happens. The man is slowly fighting his was up from bottom to best. Let the man do his thing.

I have never seen one coment where Kimbo has said he is the best and that he could beat this fighter or that fighter. Anyway, I am happy for a man who is trying the best to make something of himself. Thats alot more than many other people.

I wouldn't have a problem with him, if he wasn't main eventing over other fighters much more talented than him, and making a shitload of money just because he beat some bums on youtube. So thanks for your advice, but I'll keep hating Kimbo all I want, it makes me fell all warma and fuzzy inside .

I don't like or hate Kimbo.

I hate the fact that he took MMA into the street and could've gotten some people hurt in unsanctioned fights with no doctors or officials present that knew a shit about real problems that could have occurred in that situation.

And yes he has stated that he will beat anyone that MMA can throw at him. He coined the term "Tappin is for bitches" Of course he's obviously never faced a seasoned BJJ fighter on an Elite level so his ignorance is bliss.
And he has claimed to be the best. Go ahead and google some of his interviews before you fight for his honer.

If he is as good as he says, than there is no reason to hate him, he'll deserve the respect in the cage that he is seeking. But it's hard to tell unless he fights real athletes and not candidates for date my semi-pro buddy.

But well your comment has too many holes in it. Your heart is in the right place but I'm not sure if you really know what you're talking about.

Couldn't have said it better myself. If the guy's main eventing, making six figures a fight, he should be fighting some top level competition. I like Thompson, but he just got KO'd by Brett Rodgers who is also on this card.

I have to repeat again... SIX FIGURES PER FIGHT. Clay Guida doesn't get nearly as much as Kimbo and he's fought some true wars to get where he's at. Kimbo knocked down some tomato cans and is riding a wave of fame provided by the blood and sweat of the REAL MMA FIGHTERS that gave this SPORT it's popularity. I've said this a lot, but Kimbo is a huge step backward in MMA and I can't wait until his gravy train comes to a halt.

He even challenged Chuck Lidell to a fight (obviously because he knows the UFC doesn't copromote, because if he ever faces Lidell he's getting his ass kicked).

But going back to to the subject of the thread...

I don't know how people think that Tank in his Prime wouldn't have (probably) beaten Kimbo. As unskilled as he was, Tank was quite the beast and could have dismantled someone with Kimbo's limited skillset with relative ease IMO.

Don't get me wrong, Tank sucked against someone with skill. But on a pure "let's just go at each other swingin'" style of fight that both men share, I think that Tank in his so-called "prime" would have overwhelmed Kimbo. Compare some of Tank's early wins to any of Kimbo's. Tank won in more impressive fashion against tougher opponents back in the day IMO.
