K, you say his boxing skill isn't good, I have to disagree I think his boxing is fine and he is training wit Bas. Hes ground game sucks, true I agree with that comment 100% but lets look at Brock Lesnar his good at wrestling but no submissions whatsoever( Vs Herring ) but people seem not to care about that? So most mma fans dislike Kimbo because EliteXC is promoting him like crazy because he draws in the people? Then the fans should hate the company and not the fighter, because at the end of the day its the company that does the promoting, and not the fighter.
Kimbo's boxing is terrible. I have more boxing skill than Kimbo. He has no professional or amateur experience. He throws wide haymakers that leaves him easily open to counters. His technique is terrible, and it is easy to tell that he has no formal boxing training. I know that you didn't bring up the Kimbo vs Brock argument. Brock would destroy Kimbo. He has better wrestling, more power in his punches, and his striking might even be better.
From what I just read in ur statement, EliteXC hasn't put anyone decent against Kimbo, and people think his good. Then shouldn't the people hate on EliteXC for choosing the opponents and not Kimbo, he is just a fighter. As Kimbo said he will fighter ANYONE at ANYTIME, so I don't think he should be the person to be blamed. Now the luck issue, bro this seth guy was a no namer atleast my opinion, when I heard the silverback I was like who the f--- is that. He had nothing to lose because the UFC already dismissed him. When he had the chance to fight Kimbo and is able to give Kimbo his first loss ever, he looked at it like a given 1 out of a lifetime chance, knew if he won he will be famous. the last comment you said if they fight again Kimbo will lose.. So does that mean if Kimbo won this fight against Seth then u would've been respecting him by now and not saying he will lose again?
Kimbo will fight anyone anywhere? Really then why did Elite XC have to pay him an extra $50,000 to fight petruzelli? He refused the fight at first. Seth did have something to lose, self-respect. How could he respect himself as a fighter after losing to a talentless fighter like Kimbo? I don't think Silverback will be famous. As soon as he fights a mid level talent, he'll lose. Frank Shamrock even said he expected Kimbo to lose this fight. It wasn't a shock to all of us that know that Kimbo's game has more holes than Swiss cheese.
So being 1 dimenional he shouldn't be a Mixed Martial Artist? Not hating on Matt Hughes but he is only good on the ground, so ur comment applies to Hughes as well? and Sherk who is also only good on the ground and he can't even submit his opponent and again just using examples due to ur comment.
Both Matt Hughes and Sean Sherk have better stand up skills than Kimbo. They use their striking to take fights to the gound, but they do have good technical striking.
Andy wang... that must be a joke, but anways lets get to the point, so u use Houston as an example, that is fine except Houston actually fighting big names like Wand... and Houston lost like 3 times in a row? still hasn't learned his lesson? Idiot he is. Kimbo just lost his first MMA fight, so he just learning from this mistake and to me atleast Seth is a no namer, so Kimbo didn't think much of him and thought he was gonna be scared during the fight. Kimbo was wrong and took Seth lightly, and Seth just took him out within 14seconds now if the fight went into the 2nd round and Seth TKO'd Kimbo then I will say Seth won it and it wasn't by luck.
This is all my opinion and how I look on this issue.
First I'm not completely convinced that Wang couldn't take Kimbo. Wang is a BJJ blackbelt. It would be close but I think Wang could catch him in a submission. I do agree with Dana White that BJ Penn would submit Kimbo. Oh and Kimbo agreed on mma live. Kimbo was the one who was scared to take the fight. He had to be given a lot more money to agree to the fight, so I don't think he took him lightly. If he think Kimbo is redeemable as a fighter, could you name one fighter at HW or LHW that has descent skills that Kimbo could beat? It's not just fans that think Kimbo is a bum by the way: http://sports.yahoo.com/mma/news?slu...yhoo&type=lgns
