Nice slam for Kimbo in round two, but otherwise, a close loss or very lackluster win against an opponent one weight division down.

i wouldn't give houston round 1 simply because he didn't do anything but walk in circles. I hear alot of people bashing kimbo for not attacking and rushing in on houston, but had he done that and got knocked out probably the same people would've said "see that shows his inexperience as a fighter, he should've waited and took his time" Either way guys wouldn't have bashed him for it. Round 3 though i agree would be houston simply because he got a little more active, and landed that one nice kick that took kimbo off his feet.

I think both fighters were scared of losing. Alexander came in with 3 losses in a row and Kimbo couldn't afford to lose either.

I also think Alexander underestimated Slice. I think Houston figured his circling would baffle Kimbo and cause him to make a mistake.

If Kimbo can figure out how to take someones back and get his hooks in. How comes the HW champ cant do this. Its not that hard. If Brock was able to take advantage of his size take peoples backs with the hooks in and flatten them out, he would be unbeatable.

When he gets well, send him ATT and have him train with the a ton of black belts. If this guy can get to Matt Hughes level of bjj, he would be the best. Yes, better than my hero Fedor.

Kimbo's TD's and slams were pretty dope. He is a strong mofo. He will give any LHW without wrestling, serious problems.

Well that's a pretty bold statement.
Still. I think he has a work ethic, and he's such a humble dude. He's not cocky at all, and he's willing to learn all that he can. I think that more than anything else is why he has such great potential.

Give More.
Give everything.
Give blood.

This is exactly what happened in this fight.

i DONT GET IT...first kimbo is a chump with no chance ....now that he proved ppl wrong there are still ppl sayin he doesnt belong and since he didnt go in swinging wildly he is "scared" now.....is learning from your mistakes being scared????? NO its not Kimbo developed a work ethic because he saw that you cant win every fight just throwing your fists around. Just looking at how much the has came in the past 6 months i say give the guy another 18 to 24 months and he with be VERY hard to handle....IMO but hey thats just me
