I agree.

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?

You don't necessarily have to have Carwin's power to be able to change a fight. Kimbo does have enough power to rock Silva. Nobody here said that Kimbo's boxing was on the same level as Silva's. And everyone here knows the outcome should it hit the ground. We just merely stated that Kimbo could land a big shot. Being a standup fighter, he isn't completely horrible at boxing so it is possible.

I haven't heard anyone say that Kimbo would win outright in anyway.

I was thinking flying gogoplata.





...Which means he'd have to stand back up from the ground to jump at him and do a flying gogoplata. Very high statistical success rate.

Wow, this turned into a Kimbo thread pretty quickly.

Back to the actual topic, is there a legitimate source posting this story yet?
