I had previously sensed substantial substance to Kimbo (I saw a couple of interviews a couple of years ago wherein he wasn't simply being marketed as the ultimate scary ghetto negro) but last night was something else.

What a great soap opera this season is turning into!

Woof Guro Crafty !!! :)

I missed you when you were here in Texas, hope to either head over there or hopefully for you to make a return back to TX.  But I wanted to ask you what your take was on the match between McSweeney and Shivers, do you think McSweeney won all three rounds or were the judges watching a different match ?

Take Care my friend :)

So far Rampage has been keeping me laughing the whole time through the first three episodes.  ****Don't read below if you haven't seen the first three episodes and don't want it spoiled for ya friends :)  *****

The first fight with Abe Wagner was like something out of a crime scene . . . That guy was bleeding TONS, it kinda reminded me of seeing the head wounds some of the guys around here get at a Gathering, but Abe's wasn't spurting, it was FLOWING out of his head, like someone was changing the oil on his head and they had a pan underneath him, that fight was predictable, in that the wrestler was going to just shoot and possibly lay and pray, whatever Jiu-Jitsu skills Abe had with him, flowed out of his head with his blood and he lost . . .

On the second fight between Evans' #1 pick James McSweeney and Wes Shivers, I really think Shivers got robbed, he was active up to the time he gassed, he laid harder punches on McSweeney and even attempted some submissions but I guess they count off for when you get gassed now in TUF.  Cause McSweeney wasn't hurting the big guy, he had a guillotine but it was passed.

Kimbo and Roy Nelson . . . First, I gotta say that Nelson seems WAY too full of himself, he is his biggest fan, and with those two statements there, I'm sure alot of puns and humor could be formed at Roy's expense.  But I will save them to add to the ranting on the Underground forum.   But Dana even pointed it out that Roy wasn't even throwing hurting punches on Kimbo when he laid on him, I thought it was odd that Kimbo had trained with Rutten in the past for the Elite fights and that Rampage's team would've really worked more on his ground game.  I will say that my initial opinion of Kimbo from seeing some of his youtube vids and Elite fights that I wasn't impressed with his fight game and this fight showed the same, but I will say that he does present himself as a humble human being outside the Octagon on TUF and my opinion of him as a person has changed a little bit.

But as the saying goes, it isn't over til it's over . . .

Take Care Friends
