I think youre right however Rutten hasnt fought in a long time. I think it will take him some time to warm up, but once he realizes hes in a fight, he will come out on top.

Hey, I am a huge fan of Bas. I've picked up a lot of his instructionals, and they're freakin' great.

But realistically... 7 years is a long time. 7 years is a LIFETIME to fighters, as most fighters don't even have careers that span that long. Any time a fighter comes back from a long lay off, they're running the risk of getting stopped. That's just how it is.

Sure he's been training... He's also been training others, writing books, doing instructional DVDs, coaching IFL teams, commentating over seas and doing bits in movies. When a fighter is spreading themselves over that many different things, they don't have the time to train like they would when they are actively fighting and they don't have any other responsibilities. Every fighter who's ever held a championship will attest that their training before a fight is why they're able to win.

Do I want Bas to win this? Oh hell yes, I do. Am I sure he's going to win, nope... I'm not. That's exactly why the odds are listed that way.

It doesn't matter if you agree or disagree... As long as I don't bore you and I spark a moment of thought, my goal is achieved.

Apparently he hasn't beaten Ken Shamrock and lost to Ken Shamrock twice. But he's beaten Frank Shamrock 3 times.
From what I understand bas has only lost to Ken one time, and that was before Bas started traning in submissions. After the fight Bas and his training partner devoted all their traning to submissions because they were already great strikers. And from then on Bas has never lost a fight. I think Bas will daze Kimo with a high kick then take it to the ground and submit him in the 1st.

bas vs. kimo

BTW Bas Ruttens career losses are only four..two to ken shamrock.one to frank shamrock and one to a japanese pancrase fighter (can't remember his name.) All of these fights were very early in his career before he learned and trained submissions. After that..he NEVER lost another fight..He had one draw and that was when his opponent broke bas's sternum..bas continued to fight to a draw with a broken ribcage. THATS TOUGH! goodluck Kimo..ur gonna need it

Bas Rutten..I've never been a fan of him since he was mediocre in UFC (almost lost to Kevin Randleman) and was in Pancrease where he dominated, not that very good of an organization. And he hasn't faught since 1999 and is a commentator for PRIDE and I just don't see him as "tough, violent, badass" you know what I mean. However Kimo Leopoldo has been just a brutal fighter ever since that return to UFC. He only could beat Tank Abbott, another washed up fighter and he got owned by Ken Shamrock, Ken Shamrocks only win in four years. So I bet Bas Rutten will win this match.

Question?

Is this fight televised? Is there a new MMA senior circuit? I like the idea of 2 "older" fighters against each other. No doubt that it makes things more interesting. I hate watching the guys I used to root for get beat up by the guys in their prime. Anyway, should be a good fight. Isn't Bas a lot lighter than Kimo? I put my money on Ortiz this weekend but I haven't been paid off yet. Anybody know how this virtual betting works?

I just checked out the WFA sight. That looks like a pretty nice card. I was wondering what happened to Ivan Salaverry. He was one of my favorite fighters. Rampage vs. Lindland? Could be good.

Mediocre? man you don't seam to know much about mma or ground fighting, or maybe you just didn't pay enough attention to the fight, i have never, i mean never again seen someone strike from his back like Bas did, sure he got his nose broken but come on try to have Radleman pinning you to the mat it's almost impossible to reverse him if he's got a good position but even that way i saw Bas elbowing ang kneeing him like i had never seen before and like i have never seen again, that's tough. Still, age catches everybody, Kimo is a can but any other average fighter would probably handle Bas his first lost since 1994
