Well they're gonna feed him brawlers with no ground game for now so he can show off his new takedown/ground game and then knock them out. I dunno if it's just me, but Kimbo looked f***ing HUGE compared to Houston, so he'd be a big 205'er if he's smart and decides to cut.

Thanks to limba for this AWESOME sig

You know what I'd really like, maybe not the next fight but somewhere down the line? Kimbo Vs Chuck. Two brawling KO artists. With Chuck not quite elite level any more and Kimbo below it too, it would be a bangin good fight. Plus I think they're not too far in the weight difference, and Kimbo's up there in age too. That is if Chuck isn't retired for good.

Plus I remember Chuck sort of calling out Kimbo when he was getting all this hype in Strikeforce and Chuck was still top of the heap in the UFC, something about Kimbo "beating up bums behind taco bell". Could be some nice bad blood there too, and think of the PPV numbers these two guys would pull.

if kimbo wins his next 2 or 3 fights and chuck loses to tito and still wants to fight then i can see it happening..or even if chuck wins it could be a co main event...this is ofcourse only if kimbo wins his next 3 fights and looks good

I wouldnt mind seeing him fight Brian Stann or Kryztof next at 205 or 215. Both of those fights would be good brawls.

Krysztof, mostly b/c I just want to see Krysztof fight again, and if it's Kimbo it'll hopefully be free again.

I don't think Krysztof would circle and circle and only throw leg kicks, though.

The UFC will sign some C level fighter to make him look good.

I would rather the focus be on marketing the absolute best fighters at the elite level. It is just an opinion but the past year, I have felt that the UFC is trying to capitalize more financially then making the sport grow respectably. The fans too often Boo high level ground game and transitions and you rarely are seeing people have full matches on the ground. PART of the reason is that the fights are being made where stylistically no one is willing to do that. Again, I don't disagree but I just feel that the UFC is marketing and profiting too much on the C level fighters than really showcasing the athleticism of the A level guys. Only my opinion though and we all know the same thing about opinions.....

Very good posts, I agree entirely. Houston looked terrible, Kimbo looked worse. What Kimbo displayed on the ground was very basic jits. Nothing special at all and definitely not something that is hard to learn. I am far from good at BJJ, but I really have to say what he showed in that department is nothing special and no one should be surprised.The slams however were very cool, however both fighters should have more cardio than that, that was terrible.



I would like Kimbo to improve his cardio, learn some TDD, and get some sort of gatekeeper status. Lose some muscle and drop to LHW would also be a good idea imo. I like what he does for the sport and his newly found humble attitude.

I was thinking about the free part. There is no way that the UFC will throw Kimbo onto a main card yet(I think...) but they won't be throwing him on a preliminary card because then they can't hype the crap out of him. My conclusion. The next time we will see Kimbo is on a fight night, probably in about 6 months time or so I am guessing.

Soszynski is fighting Bonnar at 110 just so you know.
