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

If Silva does indeed pull out, who could fill in?

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???
He can kick AND walk in a perfect circle for 15 minutes!

I feel like I'm taking crazy pills. People talking about Kimbo and Thiago Silva in the same sentence with a straight face...



And since when does Kimbo have this insane Carwin/Rogers-esque KO power? Thiago Silva would tool Kimbo anywhere in that fight.



And wow what happens if Thiago really can't fight at 108?

:

Kimbo outboxing Thiago isn't what I'm worried about, it's him landing just one strong enough to daze Thiago.

Thiago's had a few fights where he's been caught with his chin out and stunned by shots.

Hell even Mendez damn near dropped him twice.

That's what I thought you meant. I don't thing that Kimbo would ever outstrike Silva. But I do agree that he could catch Silva and put him down.

I just think Thiago would take Kimbo down as soon as he got the chance and then not let him back up until the round was over, or the fight was over.

And that's what I meant when I said that if Thiago was able to take Kimbo down he'd be able to finish him there.

James Thompson who BTW sucks was killing Kimbo on the ground in EliteXC in a fight which should have been stopped.

^^^ yep yep! you guys are right.... I guess the ide of Kimbo actually out "boxing" Thigo was sorta dumb... it's just a matter of one decent shot landing and the tide can change.
.............of course....I guess that goes for them both.

Yeah either one could land a bog shot. But Thiago being the more technical boxer of the two would land more strikes and be more effective. So if Kimbo did not land that big shot, I think he would lose standing up as well.
