I cant wait to see this fight not so much for kimbos sake as for kens. Id like to see ken beat kimbo and then go on to fight his brother. The ken/frank fight would be a lot more relevant if ken manages to beat kimbo.

what does kimbo have to win by beating shamrock? or anyone he's fought so far? I mean beating a guy who hasn't had a significant win in the UFC since 1996 doesn't really do anything for you does it?

EXC is throwing Kimbo guys who haven't been competitive in MMA for years and Dana called them out for it.

He's not just the guy who runs the UFC he's also the Main promoter for every fighter in the UFC. He's the public face of the company. His job is not a behind the scenes gig.
yer I understand what u mean, but EXC don't have many great fighters, and they are afraid if they put Kimbo against someone that is too experienced or in their prime, he would lose, then they won't be able to market off of Kimbo. Kimbo deserves more credit tho, thats just my opinion.

Fav. Fighters

1. Georges St. Pierre
2. Quinton Jackson
3. Anderson Silva

The only reason I see why they are feeding Kimbo these fighters with a loosing streak is, one day, perhaps his next fight they will hype Kimbo with "in his first four professional fights he took down two UFC legends and a Pride FC star". Who else can say that? Look at the first 4 fight Chuck Lidell had, the first 4 Randy Couture had, they weren't big names like what's on Kimbo's resume (even if they sucked at the time). I'm not defending Kimbo just exposing what I think Elite will say next about Kimbo.

I don't think you can consider James thompson a Pride "star", or Tank Abbot a "legend".

Elite XC will also try to convince you that Kimbo is top ten in striking out of all heavyweights. I think people are tired of them feeding us BS and calling it steak.
