Aside that I don't think Kimbo will beat marquee fighters and become a major champ, I wouldn't mind to see him get some fights with popular guys just to see what he could do.

Plus, he was always respectful of his opponents, the fans, the coaches (except for what Bas said), and just the sport in general. If he's able to use that YouTool fanbase to make some money, I don't care if he exploits it. I wish the guy all the best - at least he is EARNING his money instead of asking for a government bailout or living on welfare.

WAR KIMBO!

as what though? ok, we know he will never be close to a champ or even a gate keeper, but i do think he'd be ok in mma ... he beat houston alexander who had wins over jardine and sakara .. yeah, not saying much .. he is one dimensional, but i think he could put on a few exciting fights in mma .. he lost to mitrione who still hasnt' lost in the ufc .. i'd like to see fights with him and mark hunt, struve and other guys who are probably in the same boat ..

I'm not impressed at all that he beat Houston Alexander in a catch weight fight. Kimbo looked like he must have had 25-30 pounds on Houston.

I agree he'd be ok, but with all the hype surrounding him, more is expected out of him. But in any fight with a grappler of any discipline, he's screwed.

Pacquio loves catchweight fights

Kimbo is just a brawler, and there are plenty of those in MMA. Hype or no hype, I actually think he did as well, if not better, than anybody would have expected him to do in MMA.
