If the fans keep watching, they learn the ground game and become better fans.

The original Bonnar/Griffin fans were watching that fight for a good slugfest, but many of them now are legit fans who can appreciate the other aspects of MMA.

EDIT:

Funnily enough Cabbage vs. Butterbean is a fight on the upcoming K-1 card.

Fedor fights I want to see..

Fedor vs. Josh Barnett
Fedor vs. Randy Couture
Fedor vs. Tim Sylvia - DEMOLISHED
Fedor vs. Andrei Arlovski - DEMOLISHED

hmmmmm, i wonder how many become reality..

Bonnar/Griffin were the regular sort of people, the difference is Kimbo is a thug. Therefor the majority of people that Kimbo draws in are thugs/"gangsta's", but hey I'm all for him bringing in good loyal fans.

You forget that this isn't just some brutal sport where everyones out to kill each other. Its much more like a game of physical chess.-looney liam

Personally I'm different to most people in my opinion on who Kimbo should fight next, I would prefer either Eilers or Ken Shamrock. Kimbo is bringing in the new fans of MMA, the longer his streak lasts for the better for MMA.

Why the hell do I want to see him fight Antonio Silva or Brett Rogers? I already know the result of those before they start!

I want MMA to become as big as possible, and Kimbo is a big part of that happening.
I think this is the same flawed reasoning that Gary Shaw uses. In the short term it works, you get more fans but in the long term I think it hurts MMA when those fans realize they have been conned and lose interest.

Sometimes you fight the can, sometimes you ARE the can.

Kimbo needs to don his Campbells Soup uniform for 1 fight against an uppercrust opponet, and after the vicious curbstomping, needs to decide between getting serious and working on conditioning/ground-game, or hanging it up and going back to fighting chumps in backyards.
