Big Tim was saying what most people in MMA are thinking even myself.
They lucky robbie and smith are fighting otherwise who are we gonna watch after gina.
Kimbo vs "glass jaw" Thompson as the main event is joke and i won't even bother to watch Kimbos big main event.
May 29, 2008 at 4:27 pm
big tim doesn't understand why kimbo is the main event. i know. would there be as much opinion or comment on robbie and smith if they were the main event. no. kimbo is a big draw like it or not. and believe me like it or not is real because its not only the poeple that love him that will watch. its especially the people that hate him.
i havent seen a kimbo weakness yet even though he is still green. until i see a weakness i can't say weather or not he sucks. nicks, you know you'll be watching that main event because you want to see what happends as much as the rest of us.
May 29, 2008 at 7:29 pm
I know what will happen like the rest of you do too.
Thompson will get KO'd like he alwas does.
Why waste the time all the good fights are on before Kimbo big three ring circus.
So no I won't be watching to see what happens to kimbo sorry don't care that much.

they should have made robbie and smith the main fight they have been around forever and that this the tittle fight..
they should have made that the main fight and then use kimbo as the co main fight
May 30, 2008 at 1:32 am
It makes sense that Kimbo is the main event – whether you are into MMA or not, EVERYONE knows who Kimbo is. If you asked 10 people, 9 know Kimbo. Ask those same people about Lawler, and you'd be lucky if 2 know. Kimbo is a good draw for network tv.
May 30, 2008 at 4:13 am
From what i've seen, which isn't as much as alot of you, is that a name is almost just as good as a top notch fighter. Just like Brock Lesnar in UFC. His name brought alot of people to watch with interest. Brock and Kimbo are both very strong and have all the opportunites in the world to become great. Like it or not for right now thoses names will draw attention.
May 30, 2008 at 4:58 am
i agree jimmydawg, not that i agree that kimbo deserves to be the main event but he is the big draw and thats why he is, same for lesnar he is a rookie that gets paid more than most fighters and gets all the hype is it fair no but its who sells seats.
May 30, 2008 at 5:20 am
People like spectacles. Kimbo is what is going to sell tickets. There are a lot of people watching those CBS commercials that have never seen an MMA event. Then you see Kimbo and he looks interesting to them. He is someone that can bring in the people who don't know the sport.
All that aside, I can't wait to see Scott Smith and Lawler trading blows. I've never seen a boring fight from either of those guys.
May 30, 2008 at 5:28 am
yeah lawler vs smith should be a brawl, i don't see that one going to a decision.
May 30, 2008 at 6:13 am
Carano didn't even make weight. I really think she would rather be a celebrity first and fighter second.
May 30, 2008 at 9:02 am
I AM SO TIRED OF PEOPLE COMPARING BROCK TO KIMBO!!!! KIMBO IS 235 AND BROCK CUTS FROM ABOUT 290
BROCK WAS IN AN NFL TRAINIGN CAMP AND AN NCAA CHAMPION!!! KIMBO IS A BUMB! DO U THINK THE WWE WOULD MAKE KIMBO A WWE CHAMPION? BROCK SURPASSES KIMBO IN EVERY WAY AND I WOULD BE WILLING O BET A LOT FO MONEY HE WOULD BEAT KIMBO IN A STANDUP WAR AS WELL SEEING AS HE DROPPED MIR WITH A FUCKING JAB. BROCK FIGHTS FOMRER WORLD CHAMPIONS AND PRIDE VETERANS. KIMBO FIGHTS GERIATRIC OLD NOBODYS WHO ARE TAYLOR MADE FOR HIS STYLE.
PLEASE STOP THE COMPARISONS… THEY BOTH HAVE NAME VALUE THATS WHERE IT ENDS
ANYONE WHO THINKS KIMBO WOULD LAST A ROUND WITH BROCK IS FUCKING KIDDING THEMSELVES
May 30, 2008 at 9:13 am
i will take that beat on the stand up fight, i think your way off there in mma or wrestling brock with ease standing up i think kimbo is worth the bet, brock has not proven anything with his stand up yet.
May 30, 2008 at 9:15 am
bet not beat
May 30, 2008 at 9:47 am
Dane Drebin said it all.
Brock eats Kimbo for breakfast.
Brock is fighting real fighters not tomato can losers just to boost CBS ratings for a week.
Just cause Kimbo is the american Idol of MMA doesn't mean he should be the main event. They can hype him just a good if he was fighting before the real main event that is lawler vs smith.
Kimbo=EliteXC marketing tool
May 30, 2008 at 10:07 am
Kimbo would kick brocks ass in a stand up fight, and they are similar in that they are both over hyped and unproven.Brock went to a nfl training camp because of his name nothing else and did not and would not have ever made the team.As far as his WWE who gives a shit i never watched it, Brock is a really wrestler and kimbo is a real fighter.Brock might be good and kimbo might be good but shut up till Brock wins a fight and kimbo beats a tough fighter.
May 30, 2008 at 10:33 am
Brian wtf are you spouting.
You first say that Kimbo would kick brock ass then go on about Kimbo and Lesnar both being unproven fighters ROFL.
Kimbo beats guys with losing records. Brock fights former champions so that comparsion is pretty retarded.
Kimbo is not a real MMA fighter a street fighter ok I give you that.
In MMA there are takedowns/submissions not just stand-up. MMA is about the complete package not just stand-up or wrestling but who can do all those things the best.
So you should take some your own advice and shut up till your buddy Kimbo fights a real MMA fight.
FYI if it was just a stand-up battle Brock still KO's Kimbo with hes longer reach and bigger power.
May 30, 2008 at 3:27 pm
fuck ya and brock did make the team but he got cut because he got in a motorcycle accident and was still offered to be part of nfl europe. look it up brian before u spout off on shit. kimbo just played highschool football. his reach is rediculously shorter. he weighs 235 and brock weighs 290. i would definetly put my money on brock and u say he's untested? if the ref didnt stop the figh he would have tko'd mir he was beating his ass and even after it got restarted he knocked mir down with a fuckin jab. the comparison between brock adn kimbo is laughable at best.
May 30, 2008 at 3:37 pm
I agree with you guys. I'm not saying Kimbo sucks because I have never seen him in a real fight. But I had some high expectations for Brock because I saw how big and fast he was before. Even though he lost he exceeded my expectations. I think Brock is too big for Kimbo unless Kimbo somehow has a great ground game.
May 31, 2008 at 1:18 am
Please kimbo would kill brock in a stand up fight, you will see when he fights herring if he stands at all he will get knocked out.You guys act like oh he fights champs and vets, he has had 1 real fight and lost to a weak champ who never defended the belt and would have lost it anyway.Herring is more of a test than mir was and he will lose again and start fighting worse fighters than kimbo does or he will quit mma once he takes one beating.
May 31, 2008 at 4:12 am
I'm not a fortune teller, but i don't see Brock really becoming a "stand up fighter". He has all the power in the world to take just about anybody down at will and ground and pound. I see him perfecting what he's comfortable with. I also understand MMA is more than wrestling, but i've also seen it's a damn good help. Once he learns all the hows to avoid submissions i still stand by what i've said before. He will become one of the all time greats.
May 31, 2008 at 5:05 am
id like to see Kimbo fight Ernesto Hoost or even Mark Hunt hee hee
