I don't know why people hate on Kimbo so much. Yeah, he was hyped, but that wasn't HIS fault, that was EliteXC's doing. He was always respectful for the opportunity, his opponents, his fans, his organization, the sport itself, etc.
No doubt, Kimbo isn't great of a MMA fighter. Yeah, he hits hard, but that's it. Nonetheless, I wish him all the best and I like the fact that he's still willing to challenge himself and earn a spot in the UFC.
