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!!!!Official Get Diesel Representative

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
08-28-2008, 11:33 PM
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.

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.

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...

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

Kimbo isnt like Tank Abbot.. he is actually training and trying to get better. I dont know why every one is hating on him. Id like to see all those people that say he sucks say that to his face!.. or even Ken Shamrock. Keyboard warriors! no respect, no balls!!!

He is popular and in a few years if he trains hard he will be a force to be reckoned with. Even now he is dangerous to ANY fighter he faces.
How many backyard fights has he been in? That takes big balls! He was smart enough to record it and put it on the intranet.
I believe he has earned the fame that he has gotten....anyone that thinks otherwise is just hatin'
Shamrock should retire but "Old Warriors Die Hard"
he might also be doing it purely to make money but can you blame him... thats what the sport has turned into now.

It takes balls to get in backyard fights regardless if the guys your fighting are trained or not... and to do it as many times as he has sheeeeiit! he doesnt deserve respect my A$$

Hes got a head with its own moon orbiting it and sickly musculature.
Hes interesting to watch because hes explosive and anything can happen, i think this attracts the average joe with a chin and a right hand with big dreams.
I think its a bit of an oddity attraction, his story, persona and genetics. If you consider all that he is very entertaining and training with bas can only make him better, that being said he's a man that faces the same scruitiny of onlookers and fans of any person in the limelight. Like a wine judge or movie critic we all hold our personal assessment.
Hes not that good IMO, and is unique in that hes contending with fighters with a very different path than his. If fighting was standing face to face and taking turn on eachothers faces than hed prolly go really far, but it isnt so it doesnt make sense to consider only those factors. He can develop his skills and i bet he will, it takes time to get it all dialed in and when the hooks cant get it done he will need sub defence and stamina like most mortal men.
I honestly feel bad for shammy, he came before there was any money in the ufc and fought hard to the best of his ability. Stay in school kids.
