Then I put my shirt on and went to work. No one committed to it, so I just kept talking. Kimbo is great - great for ratings. But Kimbo fighting a star, a superstar, somebody who’s going to elevate him or knock him down in a good way, that’s what we needed that night. We didn’t need a nobody to beat Kimbo. Everybody knows that Kimbo is not very good. He hasn’t had time to mature. He’s a new guy.”

Well I agree with Shamrock but EliteXC probably realized it was a guarenteed loss for Kimbo and didn't want that to happen.

Kimbo wins this match up by submission 9 out of 10 times. That's just a fact.

For once, I think Frank is 100% right. This was the worst possible outcome for EliteXC and Kimbo.
