Dayum, all this talk over an overrated fighter like Kimbo, we all knew Kimbo wasn't and isn't a MMA Fighter, all he had was a big punch, and not much stamina. He's got hands, but on the real, he would never be more than a 2nd tier fighter. He deserves respect for getting in the ring, I couldn't whup that white dude. lol.
Children, it's called a SET UP! From the moment you heard he would not be fighting Shamrock (at the very last minute, by the way) I knew it was rigged BUT not only that... Only hours before, I read on a sports blog that Kimbo's fight was all riding if CBS would pick up ELITE (or whatever it's called) on another contract. If Kimbo losses, no more CBS. Well, uh, how convienient that it's moving to SHOWTIME and now we're talking ratings and pay per views! It's NOT A KNOCKOUT. It's CORPORATE AMERICA! Ya'll need to check a movie called THE GREAT WHITE HOPE starring James Earl Jones.
Kimbo got $$$ for this fall. PUHLEEZE. Dude wasn't even hitting him. Nothing actually connected! The commentators were all, "This is amazing! When you have a dream [to beat Kimbo] it came true tonight!" DON'T BELIEVE THE HYPE!!!!! They had a fall guy in Kimbo and pink dude was their "Great White Hope". I smell a Kimbo/Shamrock fight on Showtime... and dumb asses will pay to see it. You reeeaaallly think they'd give you that for FREE on CBS? NOT!
Oh, and this is taking NOTHING from Pink Dude. He's a fighter, yes. For me it's not the black and white thing... it is, however, A GREEN THING! money! It's a calculated buisness move. Just saying, they could have at least made it more "realistic". Come on... a Shamrock eye injury? some unknown boxer out of no where? Some dude who could get whacked by a brick and keep smiling is suddenly failed by... whatever!!!
LMAO!!! I love it, Black folks will think of 145,324 conspiracy theories to explain shyt rather than just admit that a big mean looking brotha got his overrated ass whipped by a corny looking white dude...lol.
Kimbo is done folks...He goes into the Bob Sapp "All Hype, No Talent" scrap heap...Now hopefully people would focus energy and support to brothas who can really fight like Rashad Evans, Ramp Jackson, David Loiseau, Din Thomas and others...
To Knockout... If/When Elite goes to Showtime, they would still make even more money because they can charge for Pay Per View.
To GDprank... It's hardly about conspiracy theorisms and X File related BS. For those who did watch on CBS, do you remember the pre interview where Kimbo straight said, "I don't want to fight" (This because his challenger was changed at the last minute). He was short with the interviewer then just as he was to the end...except to shout out about an after party and that it's "all good".
So whether it was a knockout, dirty pay outs, or simply Kimbo himself wanted OUT cause he knew he was just that...an internet sensation and not some Elite spartan, an opinion is just that...AN OPINION.
Anyway, they love you when you're up cause it's sad and pathetic how headlines now say Kimbo is a "Sham". But in truth, compared to the training and disciplines other fighters have had in the same league, didn't Elite already know how this story would end anyway????
Lmao @ some of u trying 2 convince yourselves that this was fixed! U say that the White Dudes in the Audience were gettin 2 happy that a White Dude Beat a Black Dude, but in my minds its yall that have the problem! The fight was obviously real, he jabbed him 2 the top of the head...some of you just need 2 accept it and stop being such idiots! Not to say that Kimbo aint a good fighter anymore, but ANYBODY can get outclassed and, on this occassion, Kimbo did. Just accept it.
Yo, real talk, I knew Kimbo was about to get his fuggin head flown. A ghetto azz street brawlin internet thug is not going to beat any ni&&a trained in mixed martial arts. Dude gave Kimbo a fake-out kick, when Kimbo went to grab his leg, pink-haired dude stole him in his eye. Not only did he cut him over his eye, that jawn was red, swolen, and watery (a true eye jammie). That was for anyone that ever said, "that karate sh*t don't work".
That was completely fixed. It was a total disappoinment- talk about both the UFC and Channel 2 trying to boost their ratings. If I had paid money for those tickets, I'd be pissed off. Ken Shamrock couldn't fight because he had a cut over his eye. Yeh ok.
What a waste. Granted the qualifications were brawling (kimbo) and Jiu Jitsu (pinky), but I think that Kimbo had a much better chance than was given to him, even if in the end he didn't win, he still could have done more. I hope he got a nice fat check. I just didn't think Kimbo was the kind of person who would throw something away for money. But, I guess in this day and age, the dollar speaks.
On and wise77, how can you sit there and say that there are no "black dominated" sports? Ever hear of a sport called BASKETBALL?
Is EVERYTHING about skin color?
Yeah, Kimbo got set up: first the fear look, then the right kick to the stomach, and when he hesitated, <BINK>, clipped him right across the mandibula = nite,nite! For a few seconds there, Kimbo looked like he was gonna ask <in Martin Lawrence's voice> for a ceasar's salad, and 2 bus passes.
