With odds like that, maybe I should drop some money on Thompson, I have a feeling that he's going into the fight with the right gameplan (taking Kimbo down).

lol if the odds are REALLY stacked against thompson I would maybe drop alittle on it but I think we can all agree kimbo losing is very very slim and if he did it would be dramatic to his future

J.T. no longer traing with couture

From five oz's...

James “The Colossus” Thompson made headlines last year when he announced his decision to relocate to the United States and Las Vegas in order to train at Randy Couture’s Xtreme Couture gym.

At the time, the feeling was that by training at Xtreme Couture, Thompson’s overall MMA game would begin to evolve as a result. However, against Brett Rogers during his EliteXC debut in Miami this past February, Thompson still opened the fight with his patented “Gong ‘N Dash” maneuver in which he charges his opponent. And while Thompson did put Rogers against the cage in an apparent attempt to take him off his feet, he was unsuccessful in doing so and was knocked out at 2:24 of round 1.

Thompson will return to the cage next Saturday in the main event of EliteXC’s debut on CBS when he takes on Kevin “Kimbo Slice” Ferguson. But for the fight, Thompson has returned to his native UK and is no longer working with Xtreme Couture. Instead, he’s been preparing for his fight at a camp called London Street Fighters.

But for Thompson, the decision to not train at Xtreme Couture for the Slice fight was one made based on logic.

“I’m training with a team called London Street Fighters at the moment in England,” Thompson responded during a conference call on Thursday when asked to talk about his preparation for the fight. “You know I spent some time actually (deciding where to train). I joined a great team with great people. I learn from them. The problem was Shawn Thompkins has done a lot of work with Bas and Kimbo. I didn’t want to put him in such an awkward position. Shawn is a great guy. So I started looking for all the teams and followed up on one in England. It’s all been going great for me.”

dont know if this has been brought up here? if it has sorry. i guess he wants to trade hands? who knows?

Actually I was shocked at how slow Kimbo's hands looked in the Tank fight. Sure, he has great power, but if someone comes in with good hand speed and head movement (see Couture v Sylvia) then they could outstrike Kimbo pretty easily.

Some of these betting numbers are ridiculous. Bodog's line:
Kimbo Slice (-600) vs. James Thompson (+400)
The rest of the fights have interesting betting lines also:

Not only that, but the odds are against him making it past a minute thirty.

"Bout goes past 1:30 of round one (+135), or Bout goes less than 1:30 of round one (-175)

Bout starts round two (+325), or Bout does not start round two (-650)"

So I guess Thompson is f'd.
