Wow, Kimbo's ground is horrible, but Roy looks pretty pathetic as well. He couldnt last 1 round with any of the heavys in the UFC now.

Kimbo lost but he has come so far as an MMA'er. He got destroyed at 1:25 in the first round, and was laying helpless in the crucifix while getting lightly hit on the top of the head by Roy. Second round, I believe it was 4 minutes in, Roy easily brought Kimbo down, and again got him in the crucifix within a minute of taking him down. I really thought Kimbo was working on his ground game for these last many months, but apparently I was wrong. Kimbo is extremely tenacious, and I don't think he will be giving up fighting anytime soon; but unless he starts focusing on his ground game, and I mean day in and out, he will always be an easy target to anyone who is half way good on the ground.

That was f*cking horrible. This season sucks and that was the icing on the cake. Roy is fat and useless that was the worst TKO ever they should have just stood it up instead of giving him the W for such a horrible performance. Even Dana was disgusted by his performance, I officially hate Roy "Big Slob" Nelson.

Pretty horrible fight, I mean roy dominated it in the ground but damn. I'm worried there was wasted potential for new fans

Kimbo's hands are little better than I thought. A little quicker, fairly tight. The bad news is that his ground game is somehow even worse than I thought and I thought it sucked before. He is just utterly helpless, not moving his hips, he looks completely lost.

Anyone still think this guy can go anywhere in MMA with that kind of grappling ability?

Anyone who has ever trained and competed knows what happened here. Kimbo looked great in practice but when the bell rings your mind goes blank. I guarantee he forgot everything he learned. He never really had a chance of beating Roy Nelson if the fight hit the ground. Maybe a couple other guys with decent ground games but not a ground fighter of his caliber. If Dana wants to groom him he needs to put him up against guys who take him down but that he has enough skill to get up from under and build him up from there. Oh and his cardio sucks, it seems like if anyone takes him down his gas tank vanishes. Send him to big bear with Tito and fix both problems at once.

Yeah, he still has some time left but 40 is around the corner, so I feel for the guy. You can tell that he wants this extremely bad. He wants to eat it up, but he just needs a shit load more time practicing to get up to par, and I am afraid he doesn't have that much time.
