    kimbo seems like a decent guy from what i have seen on the ultimate fighter but he just didnt cut it in the mma world. i was hoping that he would do alot better in the ufc and i am dissapointed with his performance he should just stick to street fighting instead of mma.

    He does seem like a decent guy, I'm not gonna bash him for that but for all the hype he fell very short of being a good mma fighter. I can see him being better at boxing where it's stand up punching. That seems to be his style.

    He wasn't cut out for the UFC. But he is a legit guy; very intelligent, very nice.

    I just said this would happen.


    Kimbo seems like a decent guy, but not cut out for MMA. I always thought he should be boxing.

    gotta feed the kids. i hate dana white. fuck him. hes a greedy arrogant bastard. kimbo isn great but he learned a lot and was humble throughout his UFC learning experience. i think he is 1000x better now then he was just street fighting.

    side tube step bars, and a trd skid plate. Hood protector, and wade in-channel guards. K&N CAI, Dynomax catback exhaust. Weathertech floormats, and door scuff guards. White stubbie antenna.
    sorta figured this would happen. And to top it off, he got beat by the whinny baby that was always bitchen on the show.
    Not a real fan about either one of them.

    Strikeforce will sign him and give him fights with guys that want to stand and bang and people will watch because people like to see highlight knockouts. He is VERY raw in MMA and has zero ground game, so give props to Mitrione for working the ground knowing once Kimbo is on his back, he has nothing for ya. He would have been cut after his first fight, but he won. His first loss was going to be his last loss in the UFC, just as I assume James Toney's will be too. Toney gets 1, maybe 2 fights and that's it. If Kimbo stays with A.T.T. and continues to train hard and learn some ground game and how to check leg kicks, he can be a servicable fighter, never championship level, but I wouldnt mind seeing Herschel Walker vs. Kimbo Slice in early 2011. Also, I think a drop to 205 would be good for Kimbo. Weighing in at 220 in the heavyweight division these days against these 250-265 pound monsters is going to wear you down (ie. his fight against Big Belly and Mitrione.) They had too much weight once they got it on him and wore him down.
