I couldn't agree more man. I was watching this event with my sister in the room (I promised her that it would be a good showing because she didn't want to watch it at first), and at the end of the Kimbo vs. Thompson fight she said, "That was so unprofessional,the other fighting channel you watch(UFC) is so much better." I completely agree with her, and you, that UFC will dominate for a long time.

It is ridiculous.. the ref called it for a TKO.. I think the ref stopped the fight because of the ear.. realized he coudlnt do that.. then declared it a TKO to save his ass.. I dont know... stopping the fight from that combo was pathetic.. god..im so pissed.. such a horrible stoppage.

Thompson was punch drunk and the stoppage was legit. Some of you must have never seen boxing before.

The lack of second round stoppage bothers me. Kimbo was in trouble and not defending himself at all. I understand the third round stoppage. I guess what bothered me is the announcers constantly talking about Kimbo proving himself and how well he did on the ground. I don't understand how they could say that stuff without bursting out laughing.

No we watch MMA, and what we've seen tonight we've seen many times, there was no stoppage needed. James was standing on both feet, wobbly a bit but not out.

I also think that part of it was the fact that James has some messed up eyes to begin with. He looks half knocked out before he even takes a punch but he proved in the second that he could take Kimbos punches straight to the jaw and keep fighting so imo there was absolutely no legit reason to stop the fight before he actually went down.

that is called punch drunk. 2nd round stoppage would defenately be premature. Kimbo was defending. #rd round kimbo landed some serious bombs and thompson was screwed. He hit the ref. He was out of it

everybody refer to the magical exploding ear thread

WTF happened to Thompson to give him those crazy eyes, anyway? he looks like Steve Buscemi's character in Mr. Deeds.
