Kimbo will fight British behemoth 6'5" James Thompson on May 31st on Elite XC. I have never heard of Thompson and was wondering if anyone knew anything about him.

He fought in Pride a couple times, he's not that great, but I could give a **** about any Kimbo fight...

He has lost 6 of his last 8 fights, and 5 of those by KO. He even got KO'd by Butterbean!

You Kimbo nutriders should be flat out embarrassed.

Yeah, this guy's week. He's been KO'd in the first round in his last 3 fights, one time in 10 seconds by a no namer. ****, Tank was probly better than this guy.

This may be news to you, but MMA guys 'come up' alot faster than boxers. It's very hard to find a guy with even 10 pro fights who is still undefeated.

Since there are alot less MMA fighters, you have to fight better guys alot sooner in your career than in boxing. Since it's such a young sport, there also aren't many has-beens around to pad your record with either. Also, amateur MMA is nowhere as in depth as boxing amateurs. So you you don't have alot of guys with a ton of amateur fights getting to fight pros with no amateur experience for their first 10 or so fights.

He is not being brought up slowly, he is quite frankly being coddled to a ridiculous degree.

The one good thing about him fighting bums is that if he happens to lose there will be no excuses his nutriders can use.

James "The KO Loss us" Thompson. He isn't that bad but his chin is possibly the worst I've ever seen. It's made of glass.

Thompson has been KO'd 5 times in the first and 7 times overall out of 8 losses.

Here's his most recent KO loss. I wonder why they didn't give the fight to the guy who beat Thompson...

Mr. Thompson seems to be all looks and no talent from what I've seen. My guess is that this is another ploy to make Kimbo look good, although it hardly takes a genius to work that out.

I’m sure Thompson has watched all the Kimbo Street Fighting DVD’s…

Kimbo should go to the basics. Because he cant even throw a punch correctly, he is to old and should go into a nursing home in 2 years time.

Fact is, Kimbo is a draw, we all know he doesnt really rank or anything. But people will buy stuff that he is on. Just to see "The street fighter" beat up MMA guys. It's why Tank Abbott still gets fights...

I hope Kimbo don't have a cold.

Hate to see Thompson lose to a sneeze.

It makes sense since the fight is on CBS and they want to probably sell Kimbo even more. So fighting a bum and producing a KO will create even more hype for Slice of Cheese.

I know it's only his third or fourth pro fight, but how many guys get to fight on primetime on a major network like CBS early in there career. None and it's like a slap in the face of the guys that have worked hard all their careers to get where there at in the fight game. What makes matters worse is that he's fighting bums and not legitimate threats.

So....Yves Edwards and KJ Noons should be greatful they've been put on the undercard while Kimbo/Thompson gets headline?

AndersonSilva
04-19-2008, 04:47 PM
Its the first event Yves Edwards and KJ Noons are fukin great ok. people know who kimbo is. more people are going to watch if he headlines. not a lot of casual mma fans know who Yves Edwards and KJ Noons are.

Im talking about the exposure he's going to get on CBS. I don't know if you know, but being on CBS in primetime is a big deal especially in the fight game, which hasn't been there forever. Then a guy like Kimbo who's fought the likes of AfroPuff, Dreads, and BigMac (also the bums he's fought professionaly so far) gets a primetime headlining spot on CBS against another bum. I think even the well established guys in the MMA would kill for a slot like that.

I understand why people like him. He's big, mean looking and knocks people out. IMO like I said earlier it's a slap in the face of the real MMA guys that fight not only to get paid, but have dedicated their lives to the sport. Because I don't think the casual fans understand how much time and effort it takes to reach a high level.

Unless he fights talent that won't fold when you blow on them or is old, he'll still be pushed as a backyard brawler.

Also, Gary don't know how to push fighters

I don't care if you call me a hater. Im really not a hater of anybody, but Kimbo is probably the first fighter in the fight game that Im a hater of.
