Because there is so much stiff competition. (mentioned)

The names I mentioned are good not bad.

They don't suck.



Sorry guys.
Certainly no problem. I was just trying to clarify and help, etc, etc.
Perhaps this could have fixed it all:

"A loss at this point would send Thiago straight to the bottem BEHIND LHW players like Lil Nog, Jones, Shogun, Vera, Cane, Forrest and more..."

Maybe we'll get to see Kimbo vs Thiago. *giggle*

This would have to be at a catchweight.

I think Kimbo would KO him if they traded, but Thiago could finish him on the ground.

This injury crap is unreal. It is insane how so many fighters can go down like this.

Don't you think Kimbo will be moving down to LHW? Didn't he weight in at 212 or so against Alexander?

Is this a real opinion or joke opinion?

I think the catchweight was 215, and IIRC, the plan is to move him down to LHW.

I just don't want Thiago to lose, and then have to hear about all this crap again. People saying Rashad only won because Thiago was injured. If you choose to fight injured, and you lose, you beat yourself.

So hopefully he gets healed up in time. I am really looking foward to this fight!

I don't think Thiago can handle Kimbos power on his chin. He get's rocked pretty easily.

I think that Kimbo has the power to KO Silva. I don't see it happening though. Every fighter knows that Kimbo's weak point is his wrestling and ground game. Silva has very strong ground and pound. I would take Silva by TKO.

We all saw what Seth Petruzelli did to Kimbo. I think that Thiago Silva has better boxing than Seth does so you never know!

Do you think Kimbo is technical enough to box with Thiago? ....and Kimbo hasn't shown himself to be one with a granite chin himself.

I suspect that if they did fight Thiago would take it to the ground asap and from there Kimbo gets tko'd or the ref steps in because Kimbo is flopping around like a fish out of water.

I was very happy to see Kimbo had progressed some with regards to his ground skills in the Alexander fight, but I'm not sure he has the time left to develop into a well rounded MMA fighter.

Rampage must have been trainng him based on his perceived ability to identify and check low kicks. in the Alexander fight. ...of course...who the hell knew Alexandeer even knew how to kick???
