fight should have been stopped.....

they should have stoped it in the 2nd. i know the elbows were not doing alot of damg. but kimbo could not protect himself. if it was the other way around they would have stoped it

You have to intelligently defend yourself and he was not doing so even if those elbows were Pillows..

I wouldnt even call them elbows though, it was more likened to having someone push your head down with their forearm.

ya but kimbo could not defend himself at all. he was getting punched and elbowed in the head they might not have been doing much but he couldnt do anything. you have to stop the fight.

you must be new to fighting. Kimbo was pinned but he also was defending himself.
Obviously it was not the right time to stop the fight because kimbo came back and made thompson completely punch drunk. Only a Tuf noob would think that fight needed to be stopped in the second

Accept kimbo had his head tucked and when he didn't he had his hands blocking. BJ was wide and i still think that that fight was to quick due to the fac that he was pinned but no signicant damage had been established. It's like stopping a boxing fight because someone landed a handful of unanswerd jabs

James Thompson might as well have been kissing Kimbo, for all the damage those elbows did. I was screaming at my television 'FINISH HIM! FINISH HIM!' Thompson needs to retire after this pathetic performance.

The no stoppage in the second didn't piss me off as much as the standup. Who stands up a guy in side control who's striking?

James Thompson had far worse performances then this one.
