Nice writeup as always, hopefully if Shamrock doesn't get it done EliteXC gives him Brett Rogers next.

I salivate at the prospect of Rogers vs. Kimbo. Even though I'm not sold on Rogers' skills, I'd love to see these guys go to war.

Whoever wins (and I'm not convinced Rogers is technical or experienced enough to win) it's going to be a war.

That said, if Kimbo comes out of that fight undefeated, I hope he is granted a fight with Antonio Silva, so that Bigfoot can crush him.

Great as always Ironman, really solid writeup. I totally agree with you on working Kimbo from side control, he really doesn't position himself well at all. If Ken isn't caught early attempting a take down I really think that he'll try and pass guard because I think Kimbo is expecting a leg/lower body submission if the fight hits the ground.

Yeah, I don't know if Ken is planning like that. I really think that his planning process is less about what Kimbo expects and more about returning to what he (Ken) is good at.

I'd like to see Ken put Kimbo on his back, and if he can do that, then I think he'll be in really good position for a submission, whether he chooses to attack the legs or pass the guard (and Kimbo's guard is going to be flimsy, if the past is any indication) and attack from the side control or mount.

I think Kimbo is honestly tailor-made for Ken to beat, if formulates the right gameplan and executes it properly. Unfortunately, I have my doubts about whether Ken will do that.

For some reason he started to think 2001-2002ish that he was a good boxer. He's not. He needs to take this fight to the ground at all costs and avoid exchanging with Kimbo because Kimbo the longer this fight is on the feet, the better the odds of Kimbo KOIng him.

I am a pretty avid Kimbo basher and it is nice to see someone take the time to write an intelligent, thought out, article of all the reasons that Kimbo is not a good mma fighter. I dont think Ken Shamrock is the guy to beat him, but hopefully he is.

Nice break down, what about his gas tank? He isn't going to last 3 rounds at the pace he sets in the 1st.

You reading this Ken? I'll mark my ass off if Shamrock locks in a heel hook or kneebar on Kimbo

I'd like to see Ken take this to the ground, especially putting Kimbo on his back.

I hope Ken doesn't make that huge mistake of trying to stand with Kimbo. He's not a striker, and he needs to remember that.
