Kimbo Slice Fight was a Joke

First elite XC knows who their money maker is and the broadcasters showed that over and over. They hyped Kimob even though he was losing the rounds, as clumsy Tompson was in control on the ground. One guy even said Kimbo DDT Tompson, when Tompson was the the one who took him down.

Those guys were real nervous when they thought Kimbo was going to lose. The REF stopping that fight because his ear was bleeding? Come on, would he have done that if Kimbo's ear was bleeding?? Nope the fight seemed rigged to me. It was bad for MMA.

If the banks come into the US economy the children will wake up in the land their fathers conquerd, to find themselves penniless and homeless. The banks will own everything.

I don't think the fight was rigged, but I agree with that whole DDT comment. Kimbo did look bad and that fight just validated my thoughts about him as a fighter.

He has no take down defense, no ground game, and no gas tank. If they put him up against ANY of the heavyweights in the UFC, he'd get owned.

Nasty cut on a coliflower ear? Sorry you can fight no problem with that. Awful stoppage and Tompson was robbed.

He stopped the fight because Thompson was cross-eyed and stumbling like a zombie after 4 nasty shots in a row, not because his ear fell off.

Also, the announcers seemed pretty fair to me, pointing out that Slice was making rookie mistakes and simply didn't know what to do from some positions.

That being said, this fight definitely showed where Ferguson is in terms of MMA. He's still got a lot to learn, to quote him.

Fight should have been stopped in the 2nd, but then they would weaken one of their top draws. Kimbo looked awful and Tompson pushed the Ref because he knew he had been robbed. He would have taken Kimo down agian and both would look clumsy as Tompson won a victory.

He was taking shots for like 2 minutes pretty much unanswered at the end of the second round. I didn't hear the ref say anything about "You got to do something" or "You need to advance your position." No he just stood there while Kimbo took punches and elbows. Should have been stopped there.

And that stoppage... Please... Didn't even call time for a doctor to look at it. They really wanted Kimbo to win... First standing TKO I have ever seen...
