Maybe he could stand around Brock, but he's nowhere even close to the same level as Brock. They're not even in the same league. Comparing the two is like comparing a guy who plays major league baseball with the guy who plays right-field for Economy Paint Supply.

First off, Economy Pain Supply's right fielder is sweet. Secondly, Kimbo has better boxing than Brock. Brock has way better wrestling and positioning and control on the ground. More well rounded? Brock. Who would win in a fight? Obviously Brock but neither guy is super skilled as a fighter right now, they both have their base that they use. The difference is Brock's base is world class, Kimbo's isn't.

This is a very good post. I would say that the sum of all these things makes Lesnar more skilled but I could see how some wouldn't.

Man... I think Bas is finally getting senile. lol.

Well, I didn't read the whole thing, but judging from the one-liner, it doesn't look like he's suggesting that Kimbo would win, just that he's more "well-rounded".

That's arguable, but I still don't agree.

Brock is a monster of a wrestler and he sent Heath Herring flying accross the cage with a single punch. So maybe Kimbo's boxing is better (maybe!)... But I would still call Brock's hands more effective.

And Kimbo showed an EXTREMELY weak ground game against Thompson, even though his camp HAD TO KNOW that Thompson would be looking to take that fight to the ground. On top of that, he never did knock out JT, who is widely considered to have a glass jaw.

Kimbo has only fought cans. This is a guy that's ducking Brett Rodgers. lol!

Brock beat the hell out of Heath Herring (against whom Kimbo would not stand a percentage of a chance).

I love Bas, but he should just stay away from comparing Kimbo to people that could crush him with ease.

Kimbo's boxing is terrible. He has no background in boxing. His form is terrible. He leaves himself open to counter after almost every punch. Any decent boxer, muay thai, or kickboxer would knock him out. Also Brock has more power in his punches.
