Combination of things
I'm a long time lurker and first time poster.
I've watched in slow motion the whole fight over and over again to see what mistakes Kimbo made.
He started off well and took center of the ring, made great aggressive movement towards Seth, but what got him off was that front kick. The first front kick came up when Kimbo made an agressive movement towards Seth and actually kinda threw a jab and Seth threw a little jab and the front kick really got in the way of Kimbo closing the gap. So seconds later as Kimbo came to close the gap again when Seth was against the cage, Seth brings up the right leg and Kimbo drops his left hand to push the leg out of the way, loads his right and as he is coming up and forward he is completely exposed to a short right coming down. Seth's strike connected well before it had reached full length and so that was able to help it have more weight at that point. Kimbo's stance and movement prevented much of any movement of his head to move back and so his chin basically has to absorb most of the force.
I think Kimbo's lack of experience (knowing how to deal with kicks - Keep your Damn hands up kimbo, besides many other things), and the punch being right on the button ending the fight almost right there.
- Anyways, hope I didn't make an ass of myself on my first post. So hello forum!
