He was never a street fighter, he was a bare knuckles boxer. Street fighting means no rules. Everytime Kimbo fought there were plenty of rules, most importantly no kicking and nothing on the ground.

i've always said he has no place in the UAFC but the fact that he is going through the TUF way... you can't really hate on that. at least, i cant. if he makes it: good for him. if (more likely) not then at least he tried to break in to the sport a more legit way than youtube.

im sure there are people who think TUF is not legit either and I might agree with that to some degree but you can't argue that he isn't doing his darndest to appear legit now.

Honestly I am really not really thrilled about Kimbo coming to the UFC, he'll put asses in seats but nothing more than that. I see Kimbo doing as well in the UFC as Houston Alexander, big scary looking bastard who can swing, but really lacks a chin and anything else.

Who knows though, every interview I have seen with Kimbo he seems humble and likable enough, plus if Rampage is coaching him, I can see a lot of fun between those two on the show. I just don't see Kimbo being the force every fan of his expects.
I am with you 100%. In my opinion, Dana White saw an opportunity here and he took it. I think Dana canceled the Welterweights because he was afraid that Kimbo would not be in the house if they had to fight there way in. Show will be way more entertaining with Kimbo and Rampage.

Circuses are entertaining right? TUF 10 - The 3 Rings

Kimbo isn't a street fighter, he's a bareknuckles fighter. Big difference. Street fighting is no holds barred, anything goes fighting. The fights that Kimbo got into during his Youtube fame were strict bareknuckles only, no grappling, ground fighting, legs, elbows, bites etc..
