Prior to TUF 10, I was preaching Nelson's skills and saying that Kimbo was a total joke, but RIGHT NOW, I can't believe it, but the TUF/ZUFFA production staff have actually made this program so I cheer for Kimbo. REALLY, I'm liking him so much more than Nelson, whose coming off as terribly arrogant and holier than thou.
The way they're portraying him, it's like he's Rocky Balboa who "stumbled upon" his success and if he's a legit challenger, trying to train his hardest to be the BEST. I don't honestly think he'll win, but I think they're really creating a wonderful image and character for Kimbo within the UFC.....
I'd seriously be rooting for Kimbo hardcore....if only Bas didn't bury him and disown the SOB for his arrogance and assholedness. I'll take Bas Rutten's word over all others not named Couture.....
This SEASON ROCKS.
I bet these 2 fight again at the finale.
There's no rule that says Roy has to knock out Kimbo....he can make him tap!
Kimbo will knock him out. If Roy Nelson's punches can't knock out Glass Jaw Arlovski, i'm guessing he can't knock out Kimbo.
kimbo=ratings. i personally dont like him as a human being but i do as a fighter and not for the race crap that has been tried to throw around here because i have much the same feeling about tank abbott. i love to see a good game plan play out over 3-5 rounds but also enjoy the explosion of a true power fighter. like him or not i think everyone will have to admit they will watch just to see if he is able to explode in tyson fashion.
win or loose i think dana will find a way to keep him on the show. the huge football players are burning up fast for lack of cardio so tuf needs kimbo to keep most watching but ill be there anyway lol. what can i say im an mma junkie!
Only reason Roy won the IFL deal was due to Ben Rothwell had a contract dispute and did not compete in it. Even if Kimbo loses some one will get hurt and Dana will tell them Kimbo is back.
From what I've seen so far, and considering Nelson is one of the biggest threats, I can see Kimbo winning this whole show. No shit...
Kimbo would have beaten any of the two guys that fought on ep. 2. Hell, I'd put Herschel Walker on either of those two.
I think Kimbo's style will own Fatboy Nelson. Kimbo has a lot of f/n power, good handspeed, good takedown defense. Roy is cocky as hell and just from the way he is portrayed on the show thus far, I can see a big asswhoopin coming... probably from Kimbo. I say round 1 KO, Kimbo wins. Seriously, if Nelson was as good as he thought he was, he wouldn't need to be on this show, he'd be in the UFC already.
Ready to see Wes Sims fight lol. Who saw that coming?
I honestly thought that they'd save Kimbo's fight till the last, to maintain that air of competition and "chance" of Kimbo pulling a win. Since this fight is so early on the show, I personally think Kimbo pulls a flash KO.
Nelson's kinda been a big dick on this show, even though I like him as a fighter, he's done nothing to endear himself to the audience. I think he gets dropped and further's the aura of Kimbo. Mark my words: KIMBO/CROCOP.
Judging by how the show has been showing the cocky, lazy and stubborn side of Nelson, it looks like a movie. They're building a character that doesn't deserve to win shit, while displaying only the hardworking side of Kimbo. Therefore, I wouldn't be surprised if Kimbo takes this one.
I think Kimbo will knock him out. I think Roy is is over rated and certainly not a master. I am not to impressed with his ground game and I think Kimbo will wreck him standing. I think Kimbo is the more mobile fighter, stronger fighter. Roy is more experienced and more well rounded. I am going with Kimbo. I think Kimbo will be the first fighter for Rampage that doesn't gas out either, and will push the action. So if not a knock out a win via decsion.
