Sounds like James Thompson has the right plan

It sounds like Thompson has the right gameplan and is going to take Kimbo to the ground to finally test his ground game...

"It wouldn't be ideal to have a 3-round stand-up war with Kimbo. I want to put Kimbo in situations he's never been in before."

"Unlike Cantrell, I'm gonna turn up to fight. Unlike Tank, I'm gonna train and not drink."

"I've watched all of Kimbo's fights, but since he's never really been tested, you cant get a full picture. I can see what he does well, but it'll be interesting to see how handles being out of his comfort zone"

The only question is whether or not he can actually follow that gameplan.

I really hope he does because I'm curious to see just how far Kimbo has come along.

Here's the rest of the interview:

God I hope that Thompson can pull this off, it would derail the Kimbo hype train and teach Mr. Slice some damn humility.

Thompson will follow thru and get Kimbo on his back. He will then proceed to get KTFO from a punch from the bottom.

I like thompson because he just rushes in and gets ktfo. I thought that he had no ground skills. I wanna see him brawling with kimbo. Thats what they are made for.

I know Kimbo's ground game is suspect if he's learning it from Bas Rutten.

Bas's ground game, and TDD was horrible.

I just hate the Thompson matchup, It's too hard for Kimbo to blow this.

You could sneeze and knock this guy out.
