I don't really follow MMA that much. I just don't care much for Kimbo. Anyone giving Shamrock a chance to pull it off?

I was gonna give him a chance but since EliteXC is desperate for Kimbo to win there are talks of Ken gettin a big payday to throw the fight which i think is likely

He is years past his best, after watching the Buzz Berry fight i dont see him getting past the first round in this one.

It seems plausible enough, but if that was the case it seems the commissions would likely catch on.

Yeah i'm not doubting it entirely, it just seems they'd get ****ed if they got caught pulling some blatant **** (then, of course they could be in tight with the officials or some ****, I guess you never know).

If he just stands there trading blows he'll not win. But if he takes Kimbo down then I don't see why he couldn't win.

I was watching Frank talk about Ken being too macho for his own good, then watched a video of Frank doing the same in a recent fight. It's funny, because when a fighter gets older they usually just focus on their strengths and forget about the bravado.

Was a Boxing Promoter.

Now it's the Boxing Promoter's douchebag son in the ear of a total Newb.

I'm only guessing what minute of the fight he will be knocked out in.

My pick is that Shamrock will last about two minutes and the crowd will cheer for another highlight reel Kimbo KO. It won't really prove anything though.

I guess Shamrock would have a chance if he could somehow fight like he did in the 90's, take Kimbo down and submit him. It's not like Kimbo is unbeatable but the promoters know what fights he can win and what fights he can lose.

They won't take a fight that Kimbo can lose for a very long time.

That's what happens when they depend on an old man who has suffered from numerous injuries during his career. Shamrock should've never gotten the fight in the first place.

I'm sure they'll find some guy from the crowd to fight Kimbo, I bet he would perform better than Shamrock too.

If they stand and trade it's gonna be a KO win for Kimbo. If it goes to the ground, I still believe Shamrock can make him tap. Keep in mind, Kimbo has zero ground game. You also have to keep in mind that Ken is like 45.
