Anyone else impressed with Kimbo's attitude?

There have been lots of rumors circulating about Kimbo, rumors which only heated when he joined Elite XC, but personally I was quite impressed by his team attitude that was displayed during TUF. He seems like a pretty classy guy.

he's been humbled after losing bas as a trainer and the fight to petruzelli and that fight with thompson that was debacle. He realizes that if he starts any shit, people will hate him 10x more than they should, the spotlight is being thrust on him and he is handling it pretty well. I honestly don't see him going very far in the UFC though with guys like Gonzaga, Crocop, kongo, mir, velasquez, carwin, lesnar.. I don't see him beating any of those guys.

Not really impressed, just like im not impressed with his fighting. Bas pretty much made it clear that he didnt win TUF 10. He'll probably end up fighting a few lesser known newcomer heavy weights in the ufc ( like the guy with that 7 second KO from ufc 102 ) and then fade away for good.

I've always heard he was a really nice guy who just had a talent for street fighting.

He has always been like that. If people actually listened to his interviews, maybe they would know that.

Like mentioned above he got his ass handed to him and that humbled him. I think he has no chance in the UFC. I cant believe someone would call him a classy guy thats crazy. He would beat the hell out of people and make videos and put them on youtube. That isnt classy its trash. He should have gone through proper training and went up the ranks the right way not this backyard caveman fighting. To me last night he looked scared more then humbled. Alot of the trash talk though on TV is what hes told to do Im sure to boost up popularity.

Honestly I hope he does learn and get better and prove Dana wrong. I think Dana is right but it would be awesome to see him rise above and do good.

Whats up with the fake head cap he wears to look bald on top? I know its fake. When he gets all sweaty you can see the line of it around his head.

He should be humble. He is there to learn like all the other guys. I think if he keeps up this attitude then he will pick up a lot and turn out to be a decent fighter. My God, just find a ground game dude...

Thanks to Toxic for the Awesome Sig!

Even if the whole world is against you, one thing will never let you down. That thing is beer.
