Yeah, I have seen his street fights too. He has potential, especially training with Bas Rutten and Couture. From the article I read about him, Rutten said he adapts very well and he listens to instructions very well. He has knockout power, but IMO after he gets some more MMA training, he will become a better fighter in general.

He's tough, he's strong, he's mean, but I think the days of a tough street fighter coming into MMA and winning on brawling skills alone are done. Kyle Abbott's career ended when he had to fight technichal fighters and submission experts...Once deemed the toughest man around, I think hes lost his last 11 fights. If Kimbo dosnt learn submission defense fast his brawling skills will be meaningless. I saw Butterbean at 350 lbs lose to a guy 170 lbs in just 30 seconds ---->

I think he has tons of potential and he seems to have the drive.

Honestly, I would love to see a Kimbo vs Lesnar fight. Let the new guys brawl it out. I do agree both of them need to work on their submission defense, especially Brock.

That goes without saying for all stand-up guys.. they have to work the ground game. The people at EXC are doing good in promoting Kimbo by giving him just enough to handle. I heard Butterbean and Paul Buentello call Kimbo out, both are strikers but Buentello is a very high caliber striker so that would be an all out war. If he fought Butterbean I think we could see Kimbo experiment with his ground game since Butterbean has none, unless Kimbo's ego gets in the way and he just want's to brawl.

Kimbo would wreck Butterbean.

Default ehh

kimbo does have potential. i would love to see him and lesnar have a fight sometime. that would be a very entertaining fight although id put my money on brock atm because kimbo is mainly a stand up fighter and brocks a wrestler with some crazy GnP.

Kimbo is a beast.... If he trains for an all around game he will be a great fighter... Hell, he used to fight, "anybody, anytime, anywhere." I think that gives him an edge.. He's a stalker, just keeps coming.. He's a scary fighter to be up against.... Who ever steps in the ring with him will have a fight on their hands.. I look for him to do well... Only ring time will tell though.. Him and Lesnar would be cool though...
