Kimbo no ground skills at all, that will always be his downfall in the world of MMA. He will likely fight again this season. I give him credit for trying. Street fights are easy compared to fighting these experienced MMA guys.

Roy has 20 fights (including a win over Mir), and Kimbo has 4 fights, and he barely lost this fight. I was actually impressed, Roy didnt show me to much, plus Herb Dean should have stood them up before he called that fight. Those pitty pat punches from Roy were weak, plus I think Kimbo actually hurt him a little.

If Kimbo could have a better ground game and stamina he could really be someting, but @ 35, probbaly not going to happen

kimbo barely lost this fight? what fight where you watching? kimbo got roy one time and roy completely owned him on the ground. if you watched before the fight roy was talking about how you dont actually have to hit them hard from the crucifix position, the rule says if you cant intelligently defend yourself it doesnt mater how hard they punch you. he was even slapping himself in the face showing all you have to do.

once the fight hit the ground it was over. hell IMO the ref should have stopped it at the end of the 1st but let it go to the bell to give kimbo the benefit of the doubt. NO WAY should the ref stand them up when ANY FIGHTER has as dominant a position as roy had kimbo (crucifix is VERY dominant regardless of how hard you are hitting someone.) kimbo did absolutely NOTHING the second they hit the ground, he let roy control him like a grown man in a kids jiu jitsu class.

That was a frustrating fight to watch... I thought Kimbo was pacing himself well and looked decent while kickboxing. He obviously has no idea what to do on the ground...

Here's a thought though... in the long run... who really won? Kimbo showed himself to be humble, likeable, a family man, and an underdog with potential. Big Country showed himself to be an obnoxious ass. I think Kimbo won a lot of fans over... and if he can develop his ground game and become competetive... he could be VERY popular. I don't think Big Country won a lot of people over... and he didn't look that great winning either.

Default Differant view

This just shows there are several differant viewpoints to a fight. I do agree, this was a pure domination and a really boring fight. In my opinion, Country dominated and took his time but at the sametime Kimbo connected one time which immediately forced Country to wrestle. I do feel that slight connection alerted country and which proves Kimbo can throw bombs. Kimbo's ground game is really really bad. Luckily, this was not a NCAA wrestling match because Kimbo would have lost 50 to 0. Man, that was the longest pin in history. After that first pin, Kimbo looked like a beat man.

Personalities: Kimbo has earned my respect. He cannot wrestle but he is obviously trying so in my book he's a winner. Kimbo, hold your head up. After the match, his humbleness was shocking, I did not know that side of him. I respect a man who speaks proudly of parenthood/fatherhood, the country needs more of that.

Country, did not look bad in my eyes. He is a MMA fighter so you get what you get. Quite honestly, since he's not doing drugs, beating women, carrying a gun or killing dogs, I could careless. He just needs to go out and fight to earn his keep.

Yeah the fight was a joke. I came away with more respect for Kimbo and was actually hoping he would knock Big Country out since Big didn't want to offer up much but little taps to the top of Kimbos head. I thought he was supposed to be like the best of the fighters competing but he didn't do much imo. I had higher hopes for that fight.

I love kimbo attitude. But the guy needs to seriously work on his ground game.

I don't know if big country was taking pity on kimbo, or he had just gassed out.
