Then I could start my own youtube channel and get millions of views and make theoretical money!
To tell you the truth... I really think this fight is going to look a lot like Eric Schaffer vs. Houston Alexander...

If Kimbo doesn't knock out Shamrock right away and the fight goes to the ground... he's going to be submitted easily like Alexander was.

I honestly believe Kimbo would've been better suited for WWE, his persona coming from youtube was amazing, he could've had hulk hogan, stone cold status... but to train for MMA at 33 is just too difficult with the sophistication of MMA fighters today. Brock is starting late too, but he has the wrestling skills as a foundation to build on.

I like Kimbo too, but I think his humble attitude takes away from his persona that EliteXC is trying to push, whereas in the WWE he can have this scary big guy character but he doesnt have to risk losing a fight and losing his appeal. Anyways, I hope Kimbo does well, but I think if he fights any of the top heavyweights, he would get murdered...

On another note, great job Ironman, I think you just sytematiaclly broke down how shitty Kimbo is better than any person ever has

Ironman I seriosly love it when you tear peoples posts to shreds,
I would be more suprising if you didnt Tap out Kimbo in a submission match

also one other thing that people dont realize is Kimbo's acuall youtube #s.
his best video has like 2 million views,
then we can look at it this way i bet a good percentage of people that watched that video saw it more than once, some people may have seen it 10, 20 times, I bet a decent percentage of the viewers are acuall MMA fans who only watched it because they saw him on elite xc first, and wanted to see what all the hype was all about and were very dissapionted. I also think alot of people never finished the video because it was to graphic, or they just got bored.

This leaves only a couple hundred thounand people saw the fight, and just because they watched him fight it dosnt mean that every single one is goin to tune in, to watch Kimbo fight.

I think I remember Gary shaw calling it 2 million gaurenteed viewers

Yeah, the size difference seems a little more drastic to me, and Schafer is a little bit younger than Shamrock, so we'll see how that plays a roll.

I'd love the fight to look like Schafer vs. Alexander, that's just not how I see it playing out.

Yeah, Lesnar is a legit athlete, and, frankly, Kimbo's not.

I will give Lesnar enough respect to acknowledge that he's on a different level than Kimbo, though his technical skills are a work in progress.

Yeah, I'm in the same boat.

Thanks, man. I hadn't seen too many top writers looking at it, so I thought I'd take a swing.

Glad you like reading it. I like doing it.

Glad you're confident. My only worry would be getting on top, but who knows? I might get crazy and shoot a flying kneebar (got one of mine on video now, and it's technically sound, from what I can see).

Don't underestimate Kimbo's popularity. There are a lot of Kimbo trolls, and there are a lot of bloodlusters looking for a banner carrier who picked up Kimbo as a candidate.

Don't underestimate the power of stupid people in large groups. I've done that before, and I learned my lesson.

And Gary Shaw is a fat idiot. That doesn't mean Kimbo hasn't helped him out.
