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.
