    So, I guess we know Kimbo doesn't come back on the show, then, huh?

    he's certainly not a finalist. But a fight with houston is tough. I respect the ufc for not just feeding him cans to make him seem unbeatable like elite xc did.

    That sucks. I am starting to like Pellegrino. That would have been a tough fight for Edgar. Yeah, Kimbo could actually start a career in the UFC. Hopefully he has been working on some ground game.

    I think that would have been a gimme fight for edgar anyways. Everything pelegrino is agood at (mainly wrestling) Edgar is better at.
