Shaw better becareful because every up and coming fighter knows Kimbo would be an easy stepping stone and every fighter who is underaccomplished knows beating Kimbo could be there career defining moment, Kimbo is in a very bad position as his hype is gonna lead him to be called out and it gives his opponents alot of motivation.

yeah, i mean i like kimbo and all, definitely a fan, but rogers would eat him alive. MAYBE if kimbo completely worked on not getting gassed so easily, and it stayed standing, exchanging, kimbo would have a chance.. but i mean rogers is just way better currently... they both bring the heat behind their punches tho, i hope this is the next fight for kimbo

I was thinking the same thing, actually. I'd rep you if I could right now.

lol I think he's being sarcastic, if not then that's some funny shit.

They need to get something good out of this Kimbo situation. Have Antonio Silva fight him. Bigfoot would have an easy victory, and beating someone like Kimbo would make him a big name to casual fans, and then Gary Shaw wouls have someone else he can promote. No need for Kimbo after that.

i was there

A couple of comments on this as I was in the room so maybe i can add some more info.

I am a MMA fan not a fan of Kimbo. For some reason he was the headliner when Robbie/Scott should have of course been the main fight (which was amazing btw). But Kimbo was very respectful of all the fighters on stage and said many things to show he is not nearly that good at this point and that he knows where he stands.

Listen, he was very humble. He has only a few fights. He is improving. The fact is that EliteXC sees a star/money ticket in him. Nobody could be that good in a year or so. These other fighters devote their entire lives to fighting and usually start from a young age..not at 30 years old.

My point is that Kimbo came on the stage, was very respectful to all and knows his place. I understand Rogers talked alot of trash and personally I think he is tired of making $5000 a fight while Kimbo makes 100-200k per fight so why not start some junk with him and then he can make some good cash too! I thought Kimbo really was humble in the press conference and Rogers very disrespectful. I think Kimbo did well for a guy in his third fight. Would he be mauled by a Big Nog or Couture? Sure. Isnt UFC doing same thing with Lesnar though? Yes I know Lesnar is not a street fighter but a champion college wrestler..but sort of same thing no?
