What if ..
 
KImbo was in the early days in the UFC? How would he do? I know he cant compete with todays well rounded fighters, but how would a prime Kimbo do against lets say ...Tank Abott in the early days in the UFC? Obviously they are both street fighters... So how would he do in the early UFC tournaments?

Yeah, back then if he was well conditioned he could have been a threat. He has pretty good boxing skills and obviously hits extremely hard. In his fight agains Sean Gannon he wasn’t able to get an early knock out so he was completely gassed after about 10 minute and the fight had to be stopped.

Severn, Gracie, Taktarov, Shamrock, Frye, Coleman, Tank Abbott, all wouldve handled Kimbo. NO QUESTION ABOUT IT!!!!!!!!! The only guy he wouldve have a chance against was Tank Abbott. Even then it would be a battle of attrition (who was in better shape). He couldve brawled with Shamrock but Shamrock wouldve tried to submit him. Gracie wouldve caught Kimbo making a mistake and wouldve submitted him. Frye wouldve out boxed him, and Severn and Coleman wouldve taken him down and pounded him into oblivion. He wouldve broken his hands on Taktarov's head and then Taktarov wouldve taken him down and submitted him.

Do any of you guys remember Paul Varelans? He was that big offensive tackle that was in a couple of the early UFC's? I think him and Kimbo wouldve made an excellent matchup, and possibly Pat Smith as well.

Kimbo wouldn't know how to react towards Ken's leglocks.

Kimbo would be like Tank, but with more accurate punches. He'll get a few wins over bums, but then be exposed as a one trick pony when he faces someone with decent knowledge on the ground(Or good wrestling). Then a Brazilian would come in and knock him out in embarrassing fashion.

I agree whole heartedly. But I would enjoyed seeing him fight back then. When it would come down to him fighting Severn, Coleman, Shamrock, Gracie, or anyone that wasn't 1-dimensional he'd get owned. Him and Tank would've been a 45 second slugfest with it easily going either way. Tank has that iron chin but Kimbo has got to have 6-7 inches of a reach advantage at the very least so it would've been vastly entertaining in my mind.

Kimbo's got no ground game.....you saw him against Sean Gannon lol they had to stand up a shit load of times cuz neither of em knew what to do

Guys Kimbo can't fight for shit unless he snorts a couple lines first. The only way he would do even decent back then is if he could get away with snorting a few grams in between the fights. I'd like to see Kimbo on coke vs. Bob Sapp or Kimbo on coke vs. Tank Abbott but Kimbo not on coke vs. Anyone, Kimbo would get slaughtered. Kimbo wouldn't stand a chance against anyone without his precious cocaine.

how do u know he is all geeked out when he fights?? personally if you got all the top heavyweights in the world and saw them fight b4 they trained any mma, im sure Kimbo beats most of them..i think if he trained mma for a few years he could get some wins in the UFC..i think he'd beat monson right now :laugh:

He has got a good stand up and great chin. He would have done well in the early ufcs....probably could have beaten most of the competition including ken:D
