Are you sure about that because I am betting 400 on Bas to kick Kimo and stop the fight by TKO or submission in the first round. Trust me, Kimo even lost to Shamrock who was and still is on a cold streak and Bas hasn't lost since 1994. Bas Rutten is the man in this fight that will win. Can't wait.

The only reason to pick kimo is cause he's 4 to 1. That's it. He has a chance although it's slight.

is kimo a 4-1 favourite or a 4-1 underdog.

I think a 4 to 1 underdog I think because beside Ruttens name it says an "F" symbol at the 1/1 odd.

I don't know how to read these bets since I'm only fourteen lol. But Kimo definitely should be the under dog because like you said Bas Rutten will TKO him in the first round. Bas doesn't even try in his fights he's so good. Just when one guy tries to attack him he goes all crazy and starts pounding on them. Apparently he hasn't beaten Ken Shamrock and lost to Ken Shamrock twice. But he's beaten Frank Shamrock 3 times.

After taking 7 years off, no-one can be considered a "walk over" fight. Many champions have lost much of their lauded skill from absences just a fraction as long.

As great as Bas was when he retired as champ from the UFC in 1999, the facts are that Time and Age are not friendly to fighters at all. If he's kept himself conistently in shape over the last few years, and is training with the purpose that the maniacal Dutch madman is known for, then he's definitely coming to put up a fight.

Even though Kimo isn't the greatest opponent on paper, the fact still remains that he's stayed active over the last 7 years. He won't be combating any ring rust during his fight with Bas. This isn't like Frank Shamrock vs Ceasar Gracie. Kimo is not a debuting fighter.

Even considering that, if (and that's a big if) Bas is able to come to the fight with 70% of his former skills and explosiveness, he should be able to walk out with the W on this one.

Yes, I know Kimo isn't a debut fighter but in his last two years he has been on a cold streak and even lost to Ken Shamrock who has only won once in the past four years and that was against Kimo.

Bas has been training ever since he departed and retired. He's made many videos of himself training, etc.

Trust me Bas will come out with the w in this one. He didn't even try in mixed martial arts fights. He just stood there and suddenly when his opponent went wild and got frustrated he defended himself. He's a defensive fighter.
