I don't see the point in bringing him for TUF besides for the money, which is a huge reason in it's own right. I know I never should have before, and it doesn't really matter, but now anything Dana says I will be taking with a huge grain of salt. The dude goes back on a lot of things he says.

The Kimbo hate needs to stop. The guy is just trying to do the best he can with the opportunity he was given by EliteXC. Nobody can fault him for that. The guy is training his ass off to become a true mixed martial artist and he has done nothing to garner the kind of hate he has.

I hope he does get a shot, if for nothing else then to bring even more excitement and attention to the sport. Along with bringing in more fans, he can keep training and doing all he can to get better.

There's nothing wrong with that.

Besides, it's extremely obvious that Dana wants Kimbo there. He talks about him quite a bit, and with him saying that he'll build a show around him proves it. Kimbo means money, and that's not a bad thing for the sport.

I say fine, bring Kimbo into the Octagon. I wouldn't mind seeing it.

DW is funny. Calling Kimbo out for TUF is blatantly hilarious. It tells me he really wants Kimbo without seeming too and is 'pre-negotiating' a cheap price tag.

Kimbo was overpaid before, but why would he take the opportunity to get a 34,000 a year contract living in a house of snot nosed hooligans? Seriously? Sure it is a step up from celebrity boxing, but I don't think Kimbo would accept unless nothing else is cooking for him.

And a lot of people think DW is funny when he talks like that about others- but what if he talked about you that way?

And I can't blame Kimbo for taking the opportunity at EliteXC and the sad truth is many PAID to see Kimbo making it possible in the first place. Kimbo's gain was no one's loss.

Hey, if the guy that beat Slice on the interwebz got a UFC shot for it, why not Slice?

I can't understand why people say that Kimbo's stand up is good and he has power in his hands. I mean the guy can't knock out James Thompson with the baddest chin in the MMA history only Kimbo has a weaker chin.

If his stand up is good why he is not fighting Samuel Peter, I mean he hate the ground battle so why he want to make MMA?

He has performed nothing why does he harvest so much good from the people?

I can't really understand this shit!

When I read the article at work today I laughed out loud, Dana is hilarious. It wont happen, Kimbo wont go from making 500,000 to fighting on TUF, it just doesnt make any sense for him.

What is the logic of Dana's offer?

If it is to prove that Kimbo is not a good fighter, than why not just put him in the cage with a top HW fighter and be done with it?


I think that by putting him on TUF, he'd be cashing in on Kimbo fans and critics......or am I wrong?

What do you guys honestly think Dana's motive is?

I really have no clue what would be the motive for bringing the overrated, overhyped Kimbo anywhere near the UFC.

The only thing i can possibly think of is MAYBE he might squeak out a win against one of the amateur HW fighters they'll bring in for TUF.

I can't even see that happening either most will have some kind of martial art they're good at versus Kimbo's "find horrible opponents to make myself look good against-kwon-do".
