I was thinking the same thing. He was supposed to win no matter what they had to do. Just reminded me of Bisping - hammill fight where Hammill lost the fight before it started

I'm not gonna get into a big debate about this but Thompson was on queer street and would have gotten seriously hurt if the ref hadnt of stopped it. Kimbo showed alot of heart, his ground game needs alot of work. Hes no where near ready for top competition!

That was THE WORST call I've ever seen. I knew what we were in for as soon as the ref stood them up when Thompson was still hitting him and was busy.... than Kimbo getting elbowed about 100 times and not defending at all

Thompson was not even dazed at the time of stoppage. He was conscious enough to push the referee.

The whole fight was full of bad calls and early stopages, but I don't really care. Every true MMA fan knew Kimbo was a joke before this and tonight it was proven without a shadow of a doubt. JT wouldn't last 1 round with any UFC heavyweight and yet he was owning Kimbo all night. By the end it looked liked 2 drunk homeless guys fighting in the alley....but wait isn't that how Kimbo got "famouse" in the first place?

Yeah, I think that was an early stoppage. Kimbo had rocked him a few times before and Thompson had been able to recover. I was also surprised that it wasn't stopped at the end of the second round with the GnP. However, for anyone who wants to say Kimbo isn't the real deal remember the following... He got in the cage, he looked ripped, tried to keep the fight standing used what he has recently learned on the ground, and admitted that he is a work in progress. You have to give the man credit, he gets in there and mixes it up. Considering the massive amount of muscle he pushes around he had decent cardio, but you could tell he was ready for that fight to be over. Congratulations to both of those fighers on putting their hearts into a main event fight. If the ref stops the fight early it isn't the fighters fault, but it is there responsibility to keep from getting in those tight spots.

that Fight was so BS, you can clearly tell they came in Favoring Kimbo, when James had him on the ground in the 2nd round and the Ref. stood them up for no apprent reason

Kimbo def. overrated, Zero Ground Game, 0 Stamina, hopefully they find him a decent h.w for his next match and the guy Finishes him like the Garbage kimbo is.



ps- fight was so Fixed
