they way I see it aleksander can take him right now. He is a great sambo practitioner. he has beat fedor before in sambo I have the video some where on my hd. If he took kimbo down he would be able to finish it unlike thompson.

Aleks is the man. He looks like he just rolled out of bed and he rocks a mullet. How can you not love that?

I'd like to know why you felt it was suspect.

Yea agreed, I think Kimbo would definitely take him standing. But if it goes to the ground Aleksander got more than enough to finish Kimbo. That would be a great fight tho man, but I dont see it really happening.

Boo! fight with Honor!

Kimbos toughest fight was the Thompson fight, and he was pushed to his absolute limit. Almost got submitted (arguably tapped imo) by someone with no sub game, gassed horribly, and got a gift TKO because Thompson had cauliflower ear.

Thompson is somewhat of a joke in MMA circles....and after seeing Kimbo have great difficulty....it should have given you some idea as to how good Kimbo is (tip: not very). He does rock a wicked beard though.

Demian Maia may be the Fred Astaire of jiu-jitsu, but itís too bad Silva is the Gene Kelly of kicking everyoneís ass.

3 of the 5 UFC champs aren't American. People need to accept that the UFC is not xenophobic.

Or you know, the ref could have let Aleksander put a serious whomping on Thompson's head for a lot longer, so he would have started getting brain hemorrhaging.

Aleks is badass. Tests have ben done to prove it. When he went hunting for a bear with a knife I bet it wasn't even a big hunting knife. He just grabbed himself a butter knife out the drawer and went to fetch himself some bear steak.

And did Thompson look knocked out to you when the ref stopped the Kimbo fight? lol Go ahead, deny that Thompson was winning on a points scale. lol.

Kimbo is not a good fighter. Aleks nailed Kimbo perfectly: A great showman, but nothing near a mid-tier MMA fighter.

However, Aleks' theory that the UFC doesn't want him because they don't want a Russian holding the title... I don't know about all that.

Are their any Russians in the UFC?

Arlovski

Those two alone speak to the lack of bias against Russians. Well, Belarus is pretty close anyway in arlovskis case.
