I am not sure if Kalib Starnes was training him or what, but that wasn’t the Houston Alexander I had seen fight before
EPIC WIN

dude is a street fighter with what 1 year ? of mma training? been put vs people with many years of experance and him beating them lookd bad on the sport imo i do think kimbo as some good striking but i feel somone as trained as houston should of won easy imo when u get brute vs skill and brute wins its a back step...

SO to your logic Kimbo doesnt belong in the UFC because he was a street fighter? Even tho he beat a seasoned MMA fighter? Even tho Houston was a sublevel fighter he is still a challenge for anybody. And for you to say he used nothing but brute force is retarded. If he was gonna do that he would have came in swinging. IMO i say it was a step foward for the sport because just like Roy Nelson Kimbo makes MMA seem not so impossible for the average guy. I like the idea that ppl are able to come in and fight even tho they are not a world class BJJ expert or doesnt have the greatest body in sports. I know i can relate to Big Country or Kimbo a hell of a lot more than B.J. Penn or GSP or Mir...should i keep goin?

so its ok for kid in the street or guys in bars to say i could be a ufc fighter just cos i can street fight ? and to see that you dont have to be "fit" to compete makes it a stop forward lol ? how ? yes maybe in Amature orgs the same way u get fat guys in sunday soccer leauges but in no way should they be at the top level

yea but look what happened to Houston Alexander after his first two wins, he didn't want that to be a repeat with Kimbo. It's better, in the UFC, to lose a hard fought 3 rounded especially if you show heart etc.. than to just get knocked out in the first 15 seconds

Thats not what im getting at. What i mean is just because they have that back ground or body doesnt mean they are not good fighters. I.E. Big country....if they have no chance in this sport how did they win? Roy knocked Brenden the Fonk OUT and Kimbo beat a seasoned fighter who some said he had no chance against. All Im saying is give them a chance dont let their back ground fool you.

I was all for roy winning the final he showed the most skill in the season but my point been with kimbo is he has no training and he beat a seaoned fighter as you put it That is not good for the sport how can it be good
