I actually thought the fight could reasonably have been stopped in the second, Kimbo was barely defending himself, I have seen situations like that stopped. I'm glad the ref didn't stop it there, but I was surprised he didn't. Kimbo looked pretty out of it on the way back to his corner. I think he was a little messed up from all those elbows, even after the fight he was pretty out of it, I don't know if it was just the gas tank.
One thing surprised me, even though I bet on Kimbo I was worried he would be another Houston Alexander once the fight hit the ground, I thought the smart move would have been to bet on Thompson, but I bet on Kimbo anyway. Kimbo admitted he has a lot to learn on the ground, but he knew a lot more on the ground than the zero I had guessed. Kimbo is not just some backyard brawler now, lucky for my points
