I actually think Kimbo will win a fight or 2 by (T)KO. Problem is couple of those 265(+?) guys prolly got nothing else than average striking and decent college wrestling background and will be taking Kimbo down instantly. Thats where it's going to end for him.

I appreciate that they must feel that they have worked very hard for this opportunity, but looking at the shape Kimbo is in I'm sure he's put a lot of effort into getting ready for this.

I know he's not going to do well. I just hope it doesn't lead to lots of, "Lets laugh at Kimbo" type stuff. He's done nothing to deserve it.
I agree, + rep

Kimbo really hasen't done anything to deserve the amount of dis-respect he gets. I mean sure, he got knocked out by a jab (which i think was set-up), and hes famous for his street fights which really isnt very admirable but hell, its not like hes ran his mouth and claimed he was some sort of badass or talked a lot of shit.

I can't think of one reason not to like kimbo. I think the reason he gets so much shit is because he came from the street and mma fans don't want to see him succeed because he is a threat to their belief of what mma should be...

A couple of things...Marcus Jones is ******* terrifying. They can has a horror movie of him just talking for an hour and a half and I would poop myself.

I actually want Kimbo to win a few fights, not because of Dana, he always talks shit, but because nobody is giving him reshspect. This is coming from me, I hated Kimbo but know who I hate more than Kimbo? A ******* ex-football player that has 4 fight, with 4 KOS/TKOs in the first, yeah that doesn't sound like anybody else I've heard of....


Oh, I'm so exshmited, I wish it would just be fights and none of the nonsense. I really wants Rashad to knock out Rampage but I doesn't think so.

If Roy Nelson gets his act together (see loses weight) he'll definitely win this.

I'm one of those people. I know I'm an elitist sometimes when it comes to fighting, like I can't stand people who are like "LOL I street fight I'd whoop that dudes ass!" and Brock coming from a WWE back ground, but I find it harder and harder to dislike Kimbo as he IS being nothing but respectful and he's actually acting like he wants to be a real fighter. We'll see how it goes for him. As of right now I could care less if he wins or loses, I'm more interested in how he acts in the house, respect wise, and how he takes training hard since Bas said he was lazy.

EDIT: I cant wait for Marcus Jones to win a fight (I'm sure he will based on reach alone!) and stand in teh middle of the octagon laughing Shao Kahn Style. "MUAHAHAHAHA" with that deep ass voice. Oh man I think I'd pee myself out of terror. He should do that shit during the stare down man >.>

I feel for Kimbo, the guy's just trying to make money the way he knows how, he's got a wife and Kevin's to feed. I can't recall a season that had so many guys with so much experience, (Wes Sims, Roy Nelson etc.) or just such monstous guys (Marcus Jones, Wes Shivers) I mean some of them have to cut to get to 265. I don't see how Kimbo is gonna make it too far in this, I'd love to see him kick Wes Sims's ass though.

Yeah, there wasnt a single guy in that room that wouldnt have taken the same deal that kimbo got from elitexc even if they didnt even have one pro fight. No real reason to hate the guy. He probably as much experience as most of the guys in there, but i dont feel like looking into that at the moment lol (laziness on a computer, the epitome of all lazy acts).
