  1. Oh goodness Kimbo is back


    Thats right, his next fight is 10/4 and will be against 44 year old Ken Shamrock.

    How sad will this have to be. Ken will try to stand, get clocked and put out. Then the casual MMA observer will think that Kimbo is for real, b/c he ko's Ken. So sad!!!!


  2. Kimbo's a joke. Marketing is a powerful thing though

  3. What a ****ing horrible fight.... Ken's gotten KOed by nobodies lately.

  4. Godawful. I knew they wouldnt let Kimbo fight Rogers. Ken better retire after this.

  5. wow, and some people complain about the UFC and its match ups, this is ridiculous.

  6. I just hope Kimbo gets sloppy on the ground, b/c even an older/slower ken can still catch him on the ground <hopefully>

    If not, please just give Kimbo someone who can fight, it is ridiculous that the casual fan thinks he is an mma fighter

  7. This card is shaping up decently. Sure, Kimbo vs Ken isn't the greatest fight. Radach is fighting Ninja, good fight. Shields is fighting Semtex, god I hope Semtex can stay on his feet a bit. Plus Carano and a few other fights. I think it'll be pretty good. I'm interested in all of these fights, even Shamrock/Kimbo. Semtex is gonna KO Shields. I bet this is gonna be by far the best CBS EliteXC event, that aint saying much though.

  8. i was about to post this up. I dont know what to think

  9. What to think is that EliteXC is about making money with what they have. They know Kimbo vs Shamrock should pull some numbers. They don't care so much about putting together good fights as they do putting together fights that will make them money. In the long run the former would pay off. Anyways, Kimbo/Shamrock will be good for a giggle, and the rest of the card, particularly Shields/Semtex, and Ninja/Radach, should be good.

  10. Do you think Radach can hang with Ninja? I haven't really seen much of him since his fight with Sherk. I guess if Avant sponsored him he must be good, just like the white Sakuraba.

    He's no Ivey, but yeah he can hang with Ninja. Radach hits real hard and is solid all around. Should be a real good fight. I can't wait to see Semtex, it's been a while. I'm trying to hear some "If I lose you can bang me mum" type stuff, post fight.

  12. Building up Kimbo is a good thing though. When he fights some decent competition you can reel all the idiots in and make a killing with a few bets. I though he was supposed to fight Rogers which would probably have been more entertaining. And it's good to see Noons still ducking Diaz.

    As sad as it is, the fate of Elite XC is riding on Kimbo. They're WAY in the red, and although they have some good fighters, Kimbo is their biggest draw. If he loses, he loses mass appeal, and Elite XC sinks.

  14. I guess I am the only one that enjoys watching heavy handed hitters slug it out. Last night I watched rerun of Nogeira VS Herring & loved it. Can't say I love the ground game as much.

  15. Of course. Nog's heavy handed?

    The reason it's dumb is that Shamrock has been KOed by everyone, and there's no mystery in it. Shamrock's not heavy handed either.

  16. The heaviest thing Nogeira has is his chin. Heavy hands

    Apart from that, I like watching a good thrashing myself, but I don't watch Nogeira for thrashings.

    Oh no, I love it too. I 'd venture to say that 90% or more of the crowd in attendance loves it that way too.

    Maybe some crappy redneck crowd. True fans of the sport like to see every dimension in a fight. Don't get me wrong I like slugfests, but I like technical striking and grappling as well. Nice sig btw, pfff.

    Word. Every current champ is very technical at some aspect of the game and most of their forte's are grappling (Forrest and Andy are the only one's who aren't great grapplers, but Andy's still really good).

    Yeah, I don't think I could disagree that sig any more. To each his own, I guess.

  22. Let Monson have his shot at Kimbo.

    Then we'll see if it's a marketing ploy

    I agree Kimbo's got alot more to learn but for all you who feel he's a joke I'd love to see you get in the ring with him. You have to respect most of the fighters that do this for a living and keep the insults about yourselves because they are doing it and your not.

    I think a lot of people underestimate their ground skills, though maybe not so much with Silva. I doubt the Nogueiras just hand out black belts. Forrest has a fair number of finishes by submission as well.

  25. Shamrocks reflexes and speed have greatly diminished, hes always been a sloppy puncher imo. Hes clearly got descent brain damage and it was a homage that he got to make the money and fight tito three times to a fake beef scenario. Its sad that he hasnt hung it up yet and will not have the mental apptitude to enjoy it when he does retire. I predict a blatantly retarded shamrock in the not so distant future that will have people really noticing the effects of blunt force trauma to his head. For kens safety i think a quick glancing KO is in his best interest and i hope he doesnt get another concussion. I hope to god he quits. Kimbo gasses hes a flash in the pan fighter and one of the chumps he gets fed is going to beat him and it will be controversial and they will rematch and with a guy who hits like a truck he only needs one punch...

    BJ's ground game is well know, but GSP has easily the best wrestling at 170.

  27. I feel bad for Ken because this is a lose/lose for him.

    Except for the money, I guess...

    lol

    ken should have never even fought tito especialy how many times he did. made people think tito was good even though he was just ok.

    KEN WIN VIA SUBMISSION 2nd ROUND

    Dude, how do you come up with this sh*t? The guys not saying he could kick Kimbo's a$$, he's saying he's far from a top level fighter. The way you worded it didn't even make sense.

  30. Glamrock has what left in his worn out trick bag? Tie Kimbo up and throw the Pancrease of old heel hook on him?
