I think Kimbo has too much pride to do something like that.

Well, maybe he's trying to prove to Dana that he doesn't suck, that's pride and if he wins, he can throw it right in Dana's face. No doubt he has a chance to KO Roy Nelson, but if Arlovski couldn't do it within 2 rounds, IMO, neither can Kimbo and if Roy can't finish Kimbo, he would ultimately win the first 2 rounds and not face him a 3rd round anyways.

I'd love to see him win it too, but I don't think he will.

Why would you like him to win? If you've already stated it & I missed, then sorry.

Mostly because he's been respectful to his organization, the fans, his opponents, other fighters, etc. He's openly admitted it was the hardest thing he's ever attempted, but he still continues to try and I have a ton of respect for people who don't quit.

Also, he would draw a lot of people to watch the UFC. You'll see just how much attention he brings while he's on the show, ratings will be very high. If he loses and is off the show, I promise you that ratings will plummet.

That's true, I forgot about that. The standup was definitely wrong!

I'm hoping for a BIG Roy Nelson win! He is a talented fighter despite looking more like a regular guy than an Athlete! If he could trim 20-30 pounds off that waistline he could I think be a great fighter. Roy is working his way up through his work in the cage,not by hype brought on by Semi fake Street fights. I guess one of the things that bothers me about Kimbo is his big rep coming by way of impressing Gullible kids with Semi Fake rigged street fights!
