- Language & Violence; please proceed with caution.

Caption from break.com who put the video on their site: "Remember that backyard organized street fight from about a year ago where Kimbo hit the guy so hard it looked like his eye had become dislodged. Kimbo looked undefeatable in the 2 min fight. Anyway, this Boston Police Officer Sean Gannon challenged him to another underground street fight after seeing the video. Both guys through blows non-stop for 10 minutes in one of the toughest and longest street fights Ive ever seen."

I had never seen this before though I have seen other fights. I figured others may have not seen it and I also understand the Mods may think this is unsuitable for this forum and it may be deleted.

This has zero to do with Grappling or MMA.

Kimbo is an ex-con who boxed in Prison. He currently works for a Porn producer in Miami. He is a thug and doesn't deserve so much as an honorable mention as apro fighter.

His backyard bareknuckle video match was against another thug. The video part of it was the pipe dream of Kimbo's boss who thought that Kimbo was the toughest thing around and could be marketed as such. His whole group is a bunch of goons. The Gannon video showed what imbeciles they are.

Gannon showed very little skill in his UFC debut. After his beating Kimbo into the ground, I think that answers any questions about Kimbo's future as a pro fighter.

I really don't think Kimbo deserves much more attention than that.

The video also shows why they use a cage for the ufc. It is not to keep the fighters in. It is to keep the "posse" out. It would have been over much sooner had that been the case. Kimbo's boys did everything to help Kimbo get some air besides an oxygen tank or mouth to mouth.

I wouldn't delete this but I do think that Kimbo and his ilk don't deserve any of the spotlight. The last thing this sport needs is to be invaded by this trash.

Mark, you're right about Kimbo's posse. They interrupted that several times. Having no referee didn't help matters either. Thank God the Kimbo crap has come and gone.

LOL @ believing Kimbo is an excon who boxed in prison. From his own managers mouth on MMA.tv, Kimbo has never been incarcerated and had never had any formal training, but he has since then began training after the gannon fight. If you've seen any more of Kimbos fight you'd see that he is a great sportsmen, and not quite the thug you make him out to be.

CLAP,
I agree with oldman. This ugly bum is no one's hero and desreves no credit as a sportsman whatsoever. Him or his loser thug 'posse'.

You're the one who brought up the color of his skin, it has nothing to do with it. That being said I agree with Brian and oldman.
