What, is that all Kimbo's got?

After seeing that I don't think Kimbo would stand a chance against any top level heavyweight.

Kimbo is officially a joke. Thompson looked like crap and won the first two rounds anyway.

top 50, I don't think so, Kimbo has been exposed by the slowest, sloppiest fighter I have seen in a long time, Thompson looked partially retarded the whole fight and was still was clearly ahead on the cards, fight should have been stopped in the second when Kimbo just laid there, even though those were the weakest elbows I've ever seen. Maybe Thompson wasn't allowed to hit Kimbo hard. Elite XC and Kimbo are a joke.

Yeah hes a guy that hits hard, but has little to no endurance, and basically no ground skills at all. I was hoping he'd show me something for me to change my opinion on him as a fighter and he didn't at all.

Agreed 100%

I am from Miami and the only thing I can say about Kimbo is he is trying. He is alot beter than the Kimbo who fought Gannon and could beat him now but he needs alot to go. I feel he will never be a top 10 fighter but maybe if he gets beter he could be a fun guy to watch.

I can't say he lost but I sure can't say he won. I thought it was a back and forth fight.

Also they stopped the fight to early in my opinion. I belive Kimbo would have been completly winded out befor he could have knocked Thompson out.

My requests for Kimbo get your stamnina up, start jogging your ass off. I think Nogueira has a BJJ class in S FL, go find that man and go train with him for a year or so. Bas Rutten has helped you all he can so time to move on and find some new tricks. Maybe find Anderson Silva or Wanderlei Silva and have them teach you some Muai Thai.


Kimbo I give you credit for trying but step up your game.

Kimbo showed the same stamina he showed in the fight with Gannon, what a joke. This guy wouldn't las 2 minutes in the ring with Anthony Hardonk or Eddie Sanchez, and people like Nog or Sylvia would detsroy him just by staring at him.

I think with Kimbo's age and body type he will never be able to develop the stamina required to fight beyond the first round with any decent opponent. He is also going to have a very hard time building any type of decent ground game as his fighting style is so ingrained in him from all those sloppy street fights, he will always resort to trying for that one big shot and gassing. I just think it might be too late for him. It would be years before he developes a servible ground game. He will have to learn some decent tdd and make some money now because I think his time is running out.
