Man Kimbo surprised the hell outta me last night, I was really impressed. I think first off we need to find out for sure which weight class he is fighting at. Someone tole me he was having trouble making 215 last night but I'm not sure about that.
Seeing as how he weighed in at 212, I can't imagine 215 was a problem. He could lose another 7 if needs be. He should definitely be at 205 though. The HWs are just way too big for him to handle in the UFC.
As for who he should fight. The UFC is smart enough to know what Kimbo is, he's an entertainer, not a contender, so there is really no need to put him against anyone who is legitmately climbing towards the title... which is a lot of people at 205. So to be honest... I'm not sure who he should fight.
Doesn't matter where he fights at. There are a lot of guys at both 205 and HW frothing at the mouth for the payday that knocking kimbo out would bring. I thought Houston was one of those guys....guess he should've rammed kimbo with that big domed head of his.
I was very impressed with Kimbo last night. Very impressed. He isn't the next BJ Penn or anything, but his skills have certainly improved.
With that being said, he will continue to be a show fighter for the UFC. He isn't going to make any impact on any weight class, but he willg et fights because people want to see him fight. He might even continue this catch weight thing.
that fight looked like 2 noobs training. the only reason it happened was cause kimbo needed someone with even less ground skill then he has. yeah, he'll keep fighting, they'll keep finding tomato cans for him until he loses again, then he'll disappear. good for kimbo, he seems like a hard working dude, no reason he shouldn't make a little money.
