Well from a standpoint that we all have... can we really say anything about it... from a professional standpoint it is in your best interest to protect the fighters.... HEY WHERE HAVE WE HEARD THAT BEFORE ONE FIGHT PREVIOUS TO THAT....

When Thompson first started dropping the punches and elbows on the wide open dome of kimbo.. they were a decent strength...literally could have ****ed him right up... now Elite XC is going for as much popularity as they could have in every event so the more they have a popular face + undefeated.. the better... some refs could have called that guaranteed on kimbo... there was little to no protection being shown... he didn't even move his head... didn't tuck into the body.. his arms were basically not moving with one being pinned down.

R.O.B.B.E.D **** elite xc man whenever they get a window of oppurtunity... they blow it ON NATIONAL TV

Still... Kimbo could do NOTHING about them but lay there and take them. He may not have been rocked, but he wasn't defending himself.

Thompson looked like he barely even felt the ear pop.

I laugh at the fact that EliteXC's investment is a dud! Can you imagine Kimbo vs Nog or Mir?

How about in the second round when the ref was saying there was no action yet Thompson had Kimbo in a crucifix and was raining down elbows?! Or before that when Thompson was on top in side control and the ref stood them up?! Or when Mauro asked Frank who was ahead in the score cards and Frank didn't have a clue. The self-proclaimed #1 fighter in the world couldn't even venture a guess.

EliteXC wanted Kimbo to win bad but he couldn't even knock out the glass-jawed James Thompson. Props to the Colossus for exposing Kimbo tonight and for not getting knocked out.

A little cut on a swollen cauliflower ear is no reason to stop the fight. Thompson was rattled, sure, but come on. Joke of a fight and joke of a night of fights in general. What a great way to introduce millions to the world of mma. How embarassing.

LOL!! IT would be over in the 1st easily. Anyone with a half decent ground game could defeat Kimbo.

It reminds me of all the hyp Houston Alexander got until Thiago exposed him.

Hell, Houston would beat Kimbo.

I think thompsons loss was his own fault. he had that crucifix nailed. Kimbo clearly couldnt get out. What I fail to understand is why thompson did NO damage from the top. I understand he was gassed, but why not pour it all out when you have such a dominant position?
This fight was terrible.

lol yeah! I forgot about that BS when they were stood up, wtf was that? "Uh-oh... Kimbo's getting worked... better stand them up."

I think this is an MMA first, the very first TKO of a standing opponent!

Damn, I wanted to put Thompson's ear on a tee and knock it 300 yards.
