And that stoppage... Please... Didn't even call time for a doctor to look at it! They really wanted Kimbo to win...
Thats Right!! Where was the doctor?? A nasty cut the doctor comes in to check you out.

It was rigged in favor of Kimbo. Its a bad day for MMA.

Yeah... the same thing that happened in the second round where Thompson looked like he was going to sleep and then took Kimbo to the ground and started pummeling the shit out of him. Even though Thompsons shots were slowing down near the end... the ref could have stopped the fight when Kimbo's arm was pinned down receiving at least 75 to 100 elbows and punches right to the noodle.

BUT 8 minutes of fighting makes Kimbo basically dead on his feet... he couldn't breathe... he was on his way out...the guy needs to focus on conditioning.. and Elite XC lost respect of a lot of people tonight definitely. I don't pick sides and I was rooting for Kimbo the whole time... I am truly disappointed in that performance..

Lawler fight was a pretty good exchange... i'm interested in that rematch.

I would agree with you if those elbows and punches were landing with any impact at all. In reality about as much damage was being done with those as just laying on him and holding him down would have done.

well im new here. just registered so that i could voice my opinion on the kimbo fight.

ABSOLUTE GARBAGE!!!

What a disgrace to MMA. kimbo was gassed and was unable to protect himself when thompson had him on the ground. repeated elbows with no defense. it should've been stopped there.

from now forward, i will only watch a kimbo fight to see him get his assed kicked. thompson was horrible on the ground. he didn't go for anything, didn't advance his position, when he had position, kimbo just pushed him off... absolute garbage. put kimbo in a real fight with frank mir... kimbo was gassed in the first round.

GARBAGE!!!

Kimbo was terrible in that fight. It was very obvious that he still has a lot to learn because he made a ton of rookie mistakes. He also needs to work on his conditioning.

I couldn't believe how Thompson's ear exploded. That thing looked like it was ready to fall off.

Thompson looked rocked to me. Almost like Scooby Doo's cousin, Scooby Dumb. That ear was nasty.

Kimbo does need to improve, but I found myself routing for him.

*edit* To all the people saying Thompson should have won with a stoppage, I disagree. His elbows didn't look like they had much on them and when your in a position like that you should be destroying someone. Kimbo was still moving his free hand semi-effectively.

Again, the stoppage had nothing to do with the ear.

I feel bad for the Elite XC execs. Their poster boy just looked like a sub par athlete, much less a top tier MMA fighter in their big debut show. They need to put all their support behind Lawler as hes the only decent fighter they have on the roster.

You could put Slice in w/ any UFC heavyweight and probly most of the light heavyweights and he'd be gone within 2 minutes of the first round.
