the only thing i dont like is the reporters saying stuff like this was the biggest upset in mma history.kimbo was out for a payday and he got it. who knows what next and frankly i dont care. there saying he would of beat shamrock. who knows shamrock was a great fighter but he has come out of retiremnt way to may times and ruined a reputation that was worth something.elite pinned all their dreams on a backyard brawler and in the end it bit them.

First kimbo losing was NOT an upset but more of we all knew it was gonna happen. But elitexc made kimbo out to be this unstopable top HW, when in fact he is a street fighter and nothing more, and not that good of one either. I think kimbo and elite xc are bad for mma, specially when elitexc pays seth to standup instead of take him down, figuring kimbo would beat him at standup. I laughed soooo hard when kimbo got hit with the weak jab and put him on the mat and then got pounded and lost, was funny to see kimbo trying to take the ref down after lol. Kimbo will not beat any decent MMA fighter of his weight class or LHW, hell lets say even a WW, or BJ. Now i know kimbo is new to mma and he does have some respect for the other fighters, so of course hes not gonna be that good, but Kimbo has been put on this high pedistool but he should be at the very bottom, so that is why kimbo has sooooo many haters, kimbo and elitexc are making a mockery of MMA i hope they go out of business very soon. I dont think kimbo will ever beat any b or a lev mma fighter, hes a c at best. Now he could pull a serra, lol but thats something anyone could do, but the fact is kimbo has not beaten anyone thats not a can, his cardio sucks, ground game non exsistant, standup is OK, his chin is very questionable now.

ellitexc is under review by the florida athletic commission for that exact reason. if they find proof that EXC did pay seth to stand up..... then they are gonna be knee deep in lawsuits and WAY out of business.

Dana white said it himself that if people in las vegas are betting lots of money on this fight, they should know that EXC is paying seth extra to stand up and punch with kimbo (which completly changes the odds of the fight). so by doing this dana thinks that the fbi is going to jump in an really lay the fraud-hammer on EXC.

Well we'll see how he does on TUF. I heard that some info about what happened to him leaked.

Kimbo does have some tools, he is a Bad Ass. Let him work his way up on the UF and we will see. If he gets with the right trainers he could really improve. But as stated before he is not main event material right now, just an exciting brawler.


The mind and the body are interrelated: what you do to one necessarily effects the other. There must be a balance between the two. If your body is strong but your mind is weak, you are a powerful instrument with no direction; such an instrument rarely produces good. If your mind is strong but your body is weak, then you may be filled with purpose and good intentions but have no strength necessary to act on your impulses. You must strengthen your mind to control your body; and strengthen your body so you can always follow the good directions of your mind.

I'll let you know what goes down, but it will be flavored with a dose of my opinion. LOL

On a serious note the guy "Big Country" has been the champ in some company IFL I think, so he is no stranger to compitition. He is more of a tough man type, large and out of shape looking but he can really go and "in the past" has had a tough chin. Kimbo is strong and a bit slow himself but I hope to see them stand in the middle of the ring and slug it out. The cool thing is that is the type of fight they both seem to like.
