I hate to even answer this. Rampage would destroy Kimbo. What makes you think this would be a thread worthy match up to propose? In a boxing match, it might be close, but in MMA Rampage makes Kimbo look like the rookie that he is.

I was just poking fun at how dumb this thread is without directly saying 'hey, this thread is dumb'.

Ugh how did this happen? I have insight on this regarding HMC.
Choi took it to the ground when Fedor tried a bodylock takedown, yet no amount of leverage could get Fedor on top.. otherwise HMC would obviously stay standing with anyone. ( Fedor's face looked rediculous after only a handful of strikes )
Kimbo has an unknown amount of ground skill and after witnessing his fight with Tank, and hearing his post-fight conference, he is going to stand with anyone. ( He stated the pre-fight strategy was to take Tank down, yet threw it out the window once the bell rung- wanting to prove a point ).
OK so here is the insight. In K1, I've seen HMC get rocked by someone very similar to Kimbo. He just planted an overhand on HMC's face and the big man toppled.
Everyone assumes that Kimbo has a decent chin, so if he can take a strike or two and get inside, he could probably land a similar strike.. and since he apparently has KO power in both hands, HMC could go down for the count.
**** this thread.

There is no doubt that Rampage is the better all around fighter but this would have to be a heavyweight bout and Rampage would have to move up to around 230lb or so as I don't think Kimbo could cut to 205lb as his frame is just to big.
And if Kimbo came in around 250-260 then that would be another story.
Rampage is definately the full package (as proven) but Kimbo has the tools to compete at heavyweight down the road. Right now his wrestling and BJJ is just too questionable.
