Unfortunately it's probably going to be Tyson. They need to get someone that doesn't know anything about the ground. Wouldn't it be funny if Tyson knocks him out or better yet takes him down?

Not a chance, Tyson has crazy knock-out power with boxing gloves he'll destroy people with MMA gloves stand up. There's way too much risk in that fight, look for either a 40+ yr old (shamrock?) or a can with a buffed record (brett rogers?).

As washed up as Ken is, EliteXC won't risk putting Kimbo up against him. Not after being outgrappled by James Thompson.

But I seriously have to question Kimbo's punching power now. I mean, he landed MULTIPLE shots right on Thompson's chin and he couldn't even knock him out. Now, anyone that's followed Thompson's career knows he's not exactly known for his iron jaw. So even though Kimbo was clearly gassed by the second round, his inability to knock out Thompson with many clean shots on the jaw is pretty surprising.

Then again, I remember reading a post a while ago, when Kimbo was first entering the world of mma, and one poster stated that Kimbo's punching power was very overrated. Maybe they were right?

Tyson did have that kind of power, but as an avid boxing fan I have watched his skills go down hill quickly. He hasn't looked good since exiting prison, and even before that when cusamono died he lost his will to train. Shamrock would beat Kimbo. I honestly don't know if there is a fighter with a descent name or a winning record that he can beat. That's why I think it's going to be a freakhow fight like Tyson, Butterbean, or even Tommy Morrison.

No idea who his next oppoent will be, but let's face it... it ain't gonna be anyone worthy. As much of a joke as Iron Mike has become, he'd rip Kimbo a whole new collection of assholes, so it ain't gonna be him. At this rate he'll be 132 years old before they line him up against a quality opponent. Amen.

Tommy "I don't have AIDS" Morrison? Would just need the bearded lady to complete the show.

Lol Shamrock would gas out before Kimbo, he's terrible now. I can see a super hyped up rematch with Gannon or a fight with Butterbean, really doubt they would bring Tyson in. Either way, I don't give a shit cause I'm not watching it no matter what.

I wouldn't be surprised if they gave him Brett Rogers next, they almost got into a brawl from what I read at the post fight conference lol.
