Because some of us don't like the kind of recognition he brings to the sport.

I guess everyone that doesn't share your view is an idiot.

Interesting way to word your reply to this thread. I for one am not "hatin" on him. I said I beleive that he is hype.

I do not base my opinion blindly, nor do some other fans that I know. I base my opinion on the following facts.

1) His name is being mentioned by casual fans in the same catagories as champions and veterans. =Hype.

2)The fights that he's had have been against very weak competition. In these types of matches and victories (if you haven't seen them) there is no experience to be gained as a compeditor. But he's undefeated so far right?=Hype

3) He is a internet/media addict. Speaking at times humbly and intelligently. To address the critics. Then speaking in other interviews spewing nonsense to the casual fans. In essense attempting in my opinion to win everybody over with his mouth and not his hands.=Hype

4)He knows he's fighting cans and hasn't publicly addressed the topic or asked for any real competition.=Hype

5) What has he really done in MMA? Really?

6) The people that he beat up on the internet were regular people. The fights were unsanctioned and the refferee's were his friends.

7) Notable victories? Has he been tested? Credentials? TDD? GNP? Solid chin?

None of these questions have been answered.
Yet everybody is talking about him.
This is why I beleive he is overhyped.
I don't hate him.
I think he's overhyped.

J.P. nailed it on the head for me. I don't hate Kimbo- I just posted this video because I laughed so hard at the montage training I spilled my coffee all over my desk.

I got a qood question.

Why is it that when a member like myself, or any other is not sold on Kimbo's "reputation" for lack of a better word, we automatically become "haters"?

This is really ironic since there is really nothing to admire about his 2 fight carreer.

true.. but there is not much to hate either. kimbo hasn't done a thing, everything that has happened is way out of his control. he can't choose who he's fighting.. and he can't help how much the kimbo followers worship.. creating all this false hype.. dont see how u can hate or admire him, really. only time will allow it

That sounds about right.

But read through some of these threads.

People act as if we are hating Kimbo because he is breathing our air.

It is not the issue that some create.

I understand you on that. I for one am looking forward to seeing him fight a contender.
