  7. EXC "Primetime" Main Card

    Kevin Ferguson - KO 1st
    Robbie Lawler - KO 2nd
    Kaitlin Young - KO 3rd
    Phil Baroni - KO 1st
    Brett Rogers - KO 1st

    WEC 34 Main Card

    Jens Pulver - KO 3rd 3:23
    Miguel Torres - sub 1st
    Rob McCullough - KO 1st
    Chuck Grigsby - KO 2nd

    Damn you, Torres, for ruining the KO festival. I think Gina's going to have some cardio issues with the limited training she's done. I could also see JT playing the clinch and takedown game which he did in another one of his recent fights. He ain't the smartest, but you'd figure he'd learn after like 5 brutal recent KOs. I have a feeling Rogers is being groomed as a heavy handed future opponent for Kimbo.

  8. not GINA!!!

    I think you already called dibs on her.

  9. Gina weighed in at 144.5. Sweet, she's getting bigger each time. Kimbo has a new chest hair pattern.

    Looks like a fresh spider tat on his right pec, so he probably had to shave his chest for it.

    That is a funky batch of burger meat.

  11. Damn Kimbo looks enhanced. Do they drug test in the EliteXC?

  12. The New Jersey state comission does and will I assume. I'm pretty sure he hit it in the past. However, now no MMA fighters juice

  14. that beard is like a defense mechanism...

    and burger meat????? thats just gross man lol.

    two free events back to back, what more can i say?

    He's had that tat, and he's always shaved his chest weird.

  16. Has anyone heard of James Thompson before this? I mean with all the hype about Kimbo I'd like to see him fight someone with solid stand up besides TANK

    Ive been involved in MMA for years just don't remember ever hearing of James Thompson. Who has he fought and who does he train with?

    Just did and read something about him being a debt collector in the past and the light bulb came on. I remember him from PRIDE as the Debt Collector, he's not bad.

    Scratch the he's not bad part. Upon further research.. He's been knocked out 6 of his last 8 fights, probably why I couldn't think of who he was.

  25. Sadly Kimbo has been fighting nothing but fighters with losing records, to ensure & continue the HYPE & keep Elite alive. Even with him they are losing millions. Most of the fighters are sub par compared to UFC.

  26. What the hell was growing out of Thompson's ear! That was gross! Kimbo was lucky...the Ref should have called the fight in favor of Thompson when he was raining elbows on Kimbo unanswered in the second. Favoritism & a gift for Kimbo for sure.

  27. This event was a joke. Kimbo was TKO'd in round 2 from ELBOW strikes. He couldn't even get back to guard.

    WTF, a white belt with 1 day experience in BJJ could escape that position.

  28. There is a case to be made that every single fight was stopped too soon. What a huge disappointment. Kimbo was exposed by a mediocre fighter, finally. I can't wait til he takes a real fight and gets destroyed.

  29. My event review (except for the Carano fight)

    x2. If the 2nd round would've been 15 seconds longer, it would've been over with Thompson winning. Worst part about it is Thompson's very subpar to begin with, if not just plain bad. A fighter shouldn't even be allowed to fight with that bad of a cauliflower ear. After the fight I actually felt bad for Slice, he looked like he was gonna have a heart attack. He had to cut the post fight interview short cuz he couldn't breathe. If he even fights again and it's against someone who's barely average, Slice will get slaughtered. It'd be entertaining to see Rogers whip Slice. Brett Rogers told Slice after the fight that he didn't deserve to win, and he tapped out earlier in the fight but the ref didn't catch it.


    After the fight:


    Tapped.jpg

  31. i saw him tap in the first round with that standing gullotine.

  32. does anyone else think that the Kimbo fiasco was a work? I hate to pull that card out, but can Thompson be that bad on the ground that when Kimbo is giving him his left arm he doesnt know what to do with it?

    the saddest part is that the average fan that watched last night was probably impressed with Kimbo, when in actuality he showed that anyone with half a ground game would kill him. Hell, Lesnar would have destroyed him

    You're exactly right, Kimbo is a joke and anyone who knows anything about the sport has to be disgraced with the "main event" from last night. I would love to see Kimbo fight Frank Mir and get a bone broken immediately. Kimbo looked like he was high on a sedative or something. I thought Bass would have Kimbo ready to deliver the "danga da danga da dang"..

  34. Thompson's very subpar to begin with, if not just plain bad. A fighter shouldn't even be allowed to fight with that bad of a cauliflower ear.

    I think alot of U guys are expecting to see these heavyweights to have the same endurance as smaller fighters like we are accostomed to seeing in the UFC. Thompson weighs 265 lbs. Don't espect the same from these monsters as U would from light heavyweighgt 200lbers or Middleweights. That's why there are different weight classes.
    That's why Dana White concentrates on smaller fighters because he knows it's more entertaining.

    P>S that was no cauliflower ear....that was some kind of infection...they even commented on the Puss.

    Why do you keep posting?

  36. I think ELiteXc was praying Thompson would lose. I also think the ref was feeling that pressure as well. Thompson was screwed over. First, they are forced to stand up b/c Thompson has side control and kimbo in doing nothing to stop him? That is a very questionable call. Then the approximately 20 unanswered blows Thompson delivers that are completely not defended yet no stoppage? Punches may not have done damage but the fighter is not defending himself. Finally, Thompson is hit and his ear bursts and he is wobbly and this gets a stoppage? Makes no sense.

    I honestly have to wonder about this fight which is very bad for MMA.

    I agree with you totally. Another major issue that frustrates me is the fact that Thompson never tried to mount Kimbo whenever Kimbo wasn't even defending, his legs were flat on the ground the entire time. That sh** is MMA 101 so its just a little fishy.

  38. My thoughts were pretty much the same as Size's. Thompson not mounting him was weird, but I don't think he has much of a ground game. Also, Kimbo's "unreal power" couldn't KO Thompson with multiple direct hits, despite his suspect chin. I'm glad Kimbo got exposed, but I hope it doesn't kill EXC on CBS.

    I thought the first 3 fights were fun. Smith-Lawler was turning out to be pretty good until the disappointing ending. Robbie should have ended it earlier if you ask me, but Smith can take a punch. The crowd sucked for booing them at points. Robbie was killing Smith with those kicks to the ribs. Not sure why he stopped? Smith was hanging pretty tough, maybe even winning the rounds after the first.

    Gina looked good out there so I guess I ate my words. She clearly had the better standup and can take a punch too. They used a terrible camera angle, and I didn't even realize that she was trying a gogo at first. Young tried some dumb kick combos that Gina saw coming a mile away. Glad they stopped that one because seeing a chick get beat down like Tanner-Franklin or Shamrock-Tito I would be horrible for the sport.

    Joey V must hit really hard because Baroni has a good chin. Baroni's lost how many straight?

  39. I despised that crowd - Jesus.

  40. Baroni is a sad fighter, he has shown nothing over his last several fights, however, he can be fun b/c he will throw with anyone.

    in terms of Kimbo, since he is their "face" of mma, he has to win, the ref knew it, the execs knew it, they all did, that is why it was so odd. However he is NOT an mma fighter for all the reasons explained in this thread. I would love to see him fight a real mma trained fighter, but they will never let that happen, as he will be finished in minutes if not seconds
