i think the front kick did the most damage atually he just walks right into it i would say the air was driven right outta him on the one, and then he eats a perfect jab right on the chin, which for all intents and purposes really shows how "good" of a chin kimbo has.

Personally, I agree with the person who mentioned too much angst being directed towards Kimbo. It's not really the guy's fault at all, more the organization that has retarded policies. And anyways, EXC still was able to put some draws into that card, Arlovski versus Nelson was interesting... I pretty much knew Arlovski was going to win, but it was interesting nonetheless. They need more cards like this.

HE, the fighter, has nothing to do with EXC's rediculous marketing campaign. So trash EXC if you want to for ass-backwards marketing but to trash Kimbo constantly for no reason other than he's a street fighter, it shows your character. There is no other fighter in MMA who catches as much flack as this guy for doing nothing wrong, and I'm only saying this cuz no one else really does. This elitist mentality a lot of people show is bad for the sport. Grow up.. peace
You spewed this and at the same time made a comment about angry teens or adults the never grew up? Very funny. Then you add the bull about the fight being stopped early? Did you see Kimbo asking the Doc or whoever it was if he got hit? Sounds more like it was stopped in time. You complain about people not liking Kimbo? He doesn't deserve respect because he decided to start training. He deserves what he gets from MMA fans because he doesn't deserve anything he gets from Elite XC. He is a thug, and would still be out fighting people on the street if Elite wouldn't have picked him up. You should really be making comments about the lame idiots that actually tune into the shows only because he is on them. Those are the people the need to grow up and learn MMA is not only about how some street thug idiot could beat a few guys that are way past their prime. Make excuses for him losing. Say it was stopped early. Fact is, he was beaten fairly....Some people just can't grasp that I guess

I can't say how good a fighter Kimbo is. I can however say that he is very much a victim. He been exploited by pretty much everyone around him with the exception of Bas Rutten. Elite has been Main eventing this guy since his first pro fight and putting him with favorable opponents at the same time it's hard to feel bad for a guy who made $500,000 in 14 seconds or whatever it was.I think Kimbo is a great fighter for someone with 4 pro fights. Also Seth Petruzelli is not a bad fighter I enjoyed watching him on the ultimate fighter and was hoping that he beat Brad Imes.

I dont feel sorry for Kimbo at all,

Charging into the sport with comments like
"Im not tapping out, I have no idea what that shit is"

Already he thinks he is above the fighters, Kimbo mate seems you have a good personality but your mma mentality is shithouse.

Who the hell are you to come and call out guys like Chuck.

No sympathy at all, if he wants to take this seriously he needs change his approach and the way he talks about himself to the press.

It would be refreshing to hear him say he is in the lower tier of the sport but is working hard, then im sure he would get respect.

With all the hate towards Kimbo swarming around, I still think he's smart enough to rebounce and come back stronger. I *do* agree thought, that it will take him another 5 years of hard work and a lot of top level contenders to get him in the top-20 heavyweights.
