Re: TUF 10 - heavyweights

If Kimbo wins everyone will say it was rigged - which is too bad, 'cause we'll never know...

What I like about this season is that it's not so much about acting like idiots in the house. These are guys are trying to make it. period

Anyway, you have to love Kimbo after watching this season. He is one hell of an athlete, humble, and simply making money.
Gaines, how have you seen through to episode 4? Are you on the production crew?

I understand you have seen them. I'm curious as to how you're getting the episodes early?

Enjoy Kimbo vs Nelson tonight.

I was watching last wednesday's show last night (gotta love the DVR, yo) and was thinking the same thing.

My prior experience with Kimbo is basically watching him on Youtube smacking dudes around in a backyard. I realize this comes off a bit prejudiced or something but purely based on that I kinda thought he would come off as a thug from the hood but it's quite the opposite. I dare say he's eloquent? I can't say how good he's going to do on the show but I'm excited to see what happens tonight!

Re: TUF 10 - heavyweights

That was a pathetic showing by both fighters last night.

Re: TUF 10 - heavyweights

Holy crap, that was one of the worst fights I've seen! (And I've fought amateur in Missouri!!!) Kimbo obviously has some bricks for hands but not much heart and no technique. I feel bad for him to lose to such a ****** bag, who basically laid ontop of him and tapped him on the head until the ref called it. Then that fat bas@#$% tried to talk smack like he did something. But Kimbo basically was useless as soon as he hit the ground. He wasn't working hard, he wasn't even attempting anything.

Credit where credit is due, the fat bas@#$% did exactly what he had to do to win. So I have to give him props, but come on man, don't act like you knocked him out or submitted him when all you did was make the fight so incredibly boring that the ref had no choice but to stop it!!

Re: TUF 10 - heavyweights

Joe C Thomas has some good observations. I couldn't believe Kimbo wasn't even doing basic stuff on the ground like pulling in his arms for example. He was just letting his arms flailing around all over the place while he was laying on his back. I think I could have even arm barred him. No surprise the fat bas@#$% just grabbed both his arms pinned them down and tapped him on the head till the ref stopage. It really was like when I wrestle my 2 year old and I pin both his arms down and tickle him till he gives up. Very dissappointing fight.
