I understand what you're saying and It makes sense, but something tells me that he's not the genius. I think he's the Brawn in the operation and someone else is the brains.

What a stupid thing to promise. Fighters need to set aside their pride, and just tap. I mean, is having a broken arm, or a leg you can't walk around on for months worth it? I'm so tired of reading fighters trying to be hypermasculine, making it out as though fighters with concern for their health/well-being are wimps for tapping. Tapping is for a fighter's safety, and it's really not a signifier of your "manliness".

If he is telling the truth he is going to throw away his own career. You get your arm broke you don't punch as hard anymore. I think he is right on track fight wise.The one good point the interviewer makes is he has only had 3 fights.

The problem is he runs his mouth like he is 30 and 0

I really really hope he fights royce gracie since he said in another interview that he would have won UFC 1 or 2. I know he is going to end up fighting shamrock but I think it would be awsome to see little royce put kimbo to sleep or make him tap. OH I MEAN BREAK HIS ARM

I thought he meant he won't tap to a choke but he won't even tap to an armbar or heel hook? Oh please, unless he continues to fight cans, he's going to be tap.
