Did anyone else notice in Kimbo's interview...

That he was acting much more civilized (didn't use the terms "dawg" or "bread", pronounced the "R"s at the end of his words, etc.) than he usually does. It actually blew my mind. lol

If he drops the thug act I could actually come to not mind Kimbo some day.

I still think he belongs in boxing or more fittingly WWE, not MMA, but if he has to be a recognizable face in the sport, I'd rather see him acting respectful and intelligent when he speaks.

Kimbo, i give some respect too... i mean he is trying to be legit and train with a real MMA camp.... but he is still waaaaay to green, and he generally has his entourage with him at fights, and i think that brings the worst out of him. single interviews he seems humble and genuine.... his "boyz" around him he seems different...


thats why im half and half on him... if he acts humble and respects his opponent after a loss, ill respect him more. but he still needs to fight some true MMA top guys before i give him full respect as a legit fighter.



course... he steps in the cage, so right there make me respect him some

whats wrong with the thug "act"? If he is always respectful then why should it matter? I guess some people just can't handle a black man using slang....

Because real thugs can't cut it at an elite level in MMA.

It's simple misrepresentation.

When did "stitch1z" ever mention Kimbo's race? He simply made the comment that Kimbo was acting more civilized.

Scott Smith would sound just as dumb if he talked in the same mannerisms that Kimbo has.

and Scott,.............He's a white guy.

I wouldn't take it personally.
