What about Jon Jones unless he's fighting...lolz! He could certainly ruin his welcome back party.

- wouldn't mind seeing Thiago Silva, but looks like he's slated to fight Rashad.
- Keith Jardine usually fits well in these type of filler roles...

Might as well call it Tito/Shamrock 4, cause that's what would happen.

When is Dana White going to come out and just say that Kimbo does not make the final. First Dana comes out and says that Kimbo will fight at 107, now Kimbo comes out and says that he'd be willing to fight at 106.

I don't really agree. Shamrock was an undersized guy compared to Tito and was a lot older. He also had a pancrase-based skillset that left him with virtually no standup ability. And he never really improved. The only guy his standup looked good against was Ross Clifton, who died of a heart attack six months after Ken subbed him. Ken was Sakyu's ONLY KO. and that says something.

Kimbo has standup at least as good as Tito's (more power imho), their ages and sizes will be comparable, and if Kimbo has been working his ground game he might have at least developed a decent sprawl by now, whereas Ken, despite his wrestling background, had a terrible sprawl. Certainly Ken had more submission experience but Tito actually has good BJJ so that won't be a factor here, I think we'll see Tito attempt a GnP beating like Shammie. But I think Kimbo has a better chance than Ken if he can just avoid the takedown. Ken wouldn't have won the Tito fights anywhere, in my opinion, Tito was better in all areas.

Everybody good, plenty of slaves for my robot colony?

Kimbo needs to avoid people like tito for now, his wrestling is top notch...better than roys I would say.

Kimbo needs to play his cards right and get the right kinds of fights and by that I mean fight against stand up sprawl n brawlers.

I agree, kimbo shouldn't take a fight against someone whose primary strength is takedowns to GnP. But he might do it simply to get a fight against a giant name like Tito. And Kimbo always has a puncher's chance.

BTW, loved how tito spelled coleman's name wrong in his first diss :P

Kimbo's only hope would be that Tito decides to prove how great Freddy Roach has made his stand up and stand and trade with Kimbo.

Yep, I agree. This is not an easy fight for Tito. He's no Big Country. He's much smaller. I think I'd actually bet on Kimbo.
