fantasy fights? Kimbo isn't even a real fighter yet. he has fought cans this entire time. he lost to an ex-mma fighter on the streets and defeated bunch of nobodies. in mma, he defeated Ray Mercer, who is an old school boxer with 0 mma skills and that Cantrell guy who took a dive out of nowhere.
give Kimbo time and this guy will be a real fighter. Bas Rutten will make him into a machine.
Life is short and the art long, the occasion instant, experiment perilous, decision difficult.
Kimbo will obviously improve under Bas, but I really don't see him getting very far in the MMA world. I think it's one of those "too little, too late" things. Honestly, the guy is already 34. I don't see him ever amounting to much more than a spectacle beating on low tiers, but people will watch because of his internet fame. He could prove me wrong, but I doubt it.
I foresee Brock going down the same path as well if he even sticks with it. Fighting cans and such but attracting people due to the name. He will probably do alright with some submission defense though. Again, I could be wrong, but I doubt it.

Going off the internet fights, Kimbo can take some punishment. Combine that with the fact he's training under Bas and I think he'll get a fight against a top guy before getting really thrashed. He's gonna continue knocking out low to middle of the pack guys tho.
__________________ I'd like to share a revelation that I've had during my time here. It came to me when I tried to classify your species that I realized you aren't actually mammals. Every mammal on this planet instinctively develops a natural equilibrium with its surrounding environment, but you humans do not. You move to an area and you multiply, and multiply until every natural resource is consumed. And the only way you can survive is to spread to another area. There is another organism on this planet that follows the same pattern. Do you know what it is? A virus. Human beings are a disease, a cancer of this planet. You are a plague, and we...are the cure.
I think anyone on that list would beat Kimbo Slice. They guy has fought nobody, he went around beating up civilians on the internet. I'd love to see this guy fight Liddell, or anyone on that list in there prime. Just so I can watch him get his ass kicked.
Kimbo has the potential to be a decent fighter if he continues training,but one thing we learned after his fight with JT,is that Kimbo has a very,very,long way to go before he can even be considered a top MMA fighter.The fact he's on the cover of ESPN magazine sickens me.
3. I honestly don't see how Butterbean really beats anyone. If Kimbo can outlast him and wear down his stamina, Kimbo, but since Butterbean throws 400 pounds of weight in every punch, Kimbo will probably lose. Slice always struck me as more of a brawler who trys to use his size, strength, and punching power to win, and that won't work on Butterbean.
4. Chuck would crush Kimbo.
5. In his prime(hell probably right now) Ken would break Kimbo's fvckin leg. Kimbo isn't ready to take on the hall of famers.
