Kimbo has always fought people way below his skillset with the exceptions of gannon and mercer, who are still mediocre at best. Now that he's in a good organization does anyone else not see Kimbo getting his ass kicked?? Kimbo is a good fighter but he should keep it on the streets, he's gonna get his ass whipped in MMA (if he faces competition equal to him)

You have to remember that Kimbo has been training with Bas Rutten and according to him hes actually pretty good. Once he does have a fight in this new organization we will know how good or how crappy he really is.

lol Brave hobos is such a great way to sum up him Internet opponents.

I think he will do well since h is taking things seriously and Bas swears that training is going amazing.

I 2nd that. He's a big strong mofo that has alot of power. He doesn't need the greatest ground game considering there are many fighters that do well with that Sprawl n Brawl style.

I think he could be successful against mediocre talent. If he sticks to fighting in smaller organizations he could have a successful career. However, I just don't see him competing with top level talent. At least not anytime in the next few years.

Kimbo is a animal he has the fighter instinct half of the MMA game is mental and he has it Rampage started to learn how to fight on the street and look at him hes also a animal and has that mental game do you see how crazy he looks at the begining of the fight during the stare down.

kimbo fought street hacks... let's see him fight someone semi-legit; like Alex Emilianenko or Khiratonov at least before he's over hyped!

I dont understand why people just wanna throw Kimbo to the wolves. What fighter do you all know that doesn't have to work his way to getting big fights first?

I agree. I think he will do ok, but I don't think he will hold a tittle. Unless he just fights cans in a smaller org.

kimbo will do fine. I think he has good tools to start with and with bas at his side..he can only get better. So he had to promote himself via internet and street fights, all the power to him. Gotta give him a chance...now he's got one. go KIMBO!....oh ya...shave the grizzly adams beard for the love of god!

I think he's mediocre at best in MMA..

I agree. He's gotta have an opportunity to earn his way up the ranks. Let him start slow like others have done. He's fought unsanctioned street fights. Now that he's turning "Legit" I think he should be thrown some cans just to build his MMA record.

The thing is Kimbo is just now getting into MMA. He's probably not great now but with training and time he could become a great fighter. Ask this question in 18 months or so when he has got some fights and more training under his belt.

Lets be realistic there is to many people who can jump in mma and instantly fight Alex or some of the other big names.

Great title but if he faces competition equal to him they are not gonna whip his ass they will be equal hence good fights.


ya...shave the grizzly adams beard for the love of god

Plus shaving the beard would be a bad idea having a beard actually goes a long way to absorbing punches that is why it is illegal to have a beard of a certian length (I forget what) in boxing, so it is to his advantage to keep it.

I trust Bas that he will have a nice transition into MMA, if he keeps his nose clean now. His past shouldnt be looked at in a neagitve light. It could be good for MMA showing the discipline required. Plus what did the guy do thats so bad, got in a few street fights with willing "hobos"(LOL) its not like he was beating up random guys and running their pockets
