Shamrock vs. Kimbo Oct. 4 CBS
 
Who do you think will win?

If Shamrock can stay away from Kimbo's right hand, I can see Shamrock by Submission.

I agree. Kimbo is a killer street fighter , but has he learned enough to fight against a big fighter in the octagon ?

Should be a good fight regardless - both need to win

I have to give the edge to Shamrock, but would not be surprised if Kimbo catches him with the right.

Who was it that shamrock lost to in the ufc last time? I think it was rich franklin, and it was a horrible fight. I just hope that its exciting, wish it was frank instead of ken, I'd love to see him get his face f'd up by kimbo.

This is an elite xc match correct? Hopefully that will mean less political bs, but who knows.

i wish shamrock would stop fighting. he is way past his prime and there is nothing worst than seeing someone who is great get beat at something you know they were one of the best at. shamrock in his prime would win. but i think if kimbo gets in a few good punches its over

I can't find it on youtube, but he came out of retirement to fight franklin at one point, or someone else that was his build, and it lasted maybe 30 or 40 seconds. I completely forgot about all the bullshit between him an tito.

Fighter past his prime vs street fighter...it will be entertaining, but I doubt it will be a "good fight". :)

I saw a couple of little guys fighting a week or two ago. One had a wrestling/boxing background and the other had a BJJ/muay thai background....that was a great fight. And I don't even remember their names. Funny.

My money is on Kimbo...
 
Kimbo has been training with Bas Rutten for a while now so he's not the same fighter we've seen on Youtube or even in his first couple MMA bouts. I think Shamrock will get ktfo in the second round... maybe even the first.

However, with Bas Rutten in his corner, I wouldn't be suprised if Kimbo wins by submission. I think this would be a great strategy for Kimbo because Shamrock is a submisison expert. Thus submitting Shamrock would completely legitimize Kimbo as a world-class MMA fighter.

I respect Shamrock's skill, and he's one of the guys that I give credit to for shooting MMA into the stratosphere... however, I think he's lost his edge. Unfortunately, his age caught up with him. What happened to his flexibility, speed and athleticism? I remember from one of his fights with Ortiz, when Shamrock tried for an axe kick and his feet went out from underneath him. I enjoy watching him fight in classic UFC... but it's time for him to retire. Besides... I think he's a bit of a dick anyway... way too cocky and a bit of a mouth. However, his book "Into the Lions Den" was a great read.

I think the better fight would be Kimbo vs. Frank Shamrock.

I predict a similar outcome with Couture vs. Lesnar. Couture is 45 years old for crying out loud.:wtf: Granted... he could kick my ass with both hands tied behind his back, he's one of the greatest MMA fighters ever, and he's still got his tools... but shit man... Brock Lesnar is a freakin monster! Sure, Lesnar is a bit green, but he has the work ethic and financial wear-with-all, to catch up with the top fighters, real f'ing quick.

Couture is f'ing great... but I expect Lesnar to ground and pound him to a TKO within the first round.

I see Brock Lesnar doing to MMA, what Mike Tyson did to Boxing in the early 80s.

Anyway... that's my 2 cents...:biglaugh:
