How disgusting was that fight? When Houston dropped Kimbo in the third he just stood there looking at him. I am really certain that had he just jumped on Kimbo and pummeled him with punches he would have won. Really big let down on this fight, I was expecting more of a war between both guys.

Edit: I should note I don't think the fight was fixed

Was a really odd fight, seemed to me Houston was to overly cautious and his plan might have worked if he actually tried landing some shots from the outside (aside for a few leg kicks). I never really liked Kimbo simply because I always thought of him as a spectacle type fighter, but after watching him go through the tuf camp and in this latest fight he really seems to be a humble dude that has really learned alot and improved his game. Seeing him mount an opponent was just shocking hopefully he can build on this and move forward stronger.

IMO Houston clearly won the 1st and 3rd rounds.
Kimbo seemed to want to take the easy option by using his size advantage ( claimed 212 pounds to 208 but it was a sh*tload more than that ) to LnP. What a f*cking bitch!
Coupled with the announcement that Chuck and Tito are the next TUF coaches It seems the UFC is becoming a farce.
i thought houston won the 1st and 3rd rounds, too, although the 3rd round probably could've gone either way. i really don't see how kimbo won 30-27 on one judge's scorecard, though. i felt like the 1st round had to go to houston simply because he landed several kicks whereas kimbo didn't really do anything.

Do you guys think Houston is really that good? He never has done much except get a lucky shot on Jardine. I thought Kimbo would win, even being new to the sport.

Yeah it was kinda BS I was thinking the same thing for a few seconds...but honestly man after thinking about it I dont really think that he threw the fight the UFC is real. They cant afford to start throwin fights, nobody even cares about Kimbo anymore. After watching TUF everyone realized how much of a can he is and dont care if he ever fights in the UFC. Thats most mma fans, casual street fighting fans might disagree. One guy told me once that Kimbo Slice would beat Mike Tyson.

I agree with one of the posts on the first page, neither one of these fighters should ever fight in the UFC again.

please tell me this is a joke. houston lost because he was fighting a guy with an identical style who happened to be bigger and stronger.

Houston didn't throw it, just isn't as skilled as Kimbo in the striking. I mean, it didn't seem like he tried, but I just don't see UFC rigging stuff like that.
