LOL. OMG hes black! He says nigga and uses bad words! He MUST be a lowlife thug! Hes not as bad as you guys are making him out to be.




To start with, I know its an older thread, but what the heck...

I am not sure why you made a point of bringing race into the scenario, but it has NOTHING to do with what anyone has said.

If you dont like the 'thug' argument, how about this one?

He is a one-dimensional fighter, and a lousy one at that.

He hits hard. Thats about it.

I agree with the others. From what has been seen so far, he has little to no skill, and warrants to further attention.

Well it's 7:56 and Chris is waking up having a cup of coffee and some Fruit Loops. He strolls over to his computer and logs in only to find himself unable to access one of his favorite websites. After a few minutes of sitting around going "OMG! WTF" it might occur to him that maybe it was not prudent to tell me to shut up. It could be that as we speak he is franticly trying to contact another mod or perhaps even the Administraitor to allow him to access the site again.

If you pull a dogs tale you might just get bit.

I guess CLP didn`t saw the clip where Kimbo beats up a guy in a store, because the guy said to his wife to get back in line or something like that....

Interesting thing about kimbo, his cousin is emanual augustus.. a pretty decent pro boxer. Might explain kimbos slight abilities, I repeat SLIGHT abilities as a puncher.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Emanuel_Augustus

Wikpedia reports his cousin as an olympic judoka Rhadi Ferguson....
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kimbo_Slice

Is there anyway to verify any of this ?

Honestly though, not defending kimbo or anything.. but what makes him any worse than Motobu who used to start fights on a regular basis to test his skills ? Is it the fact that he is a bodyguard for a pornography company ? Or because he doesnt practice any "legit" martial art....?? Just curious as to others thoughts...

Also, gannon fought at ufc 55 .... anyone have a link to a video clip to see this fight ?? Or was it not even taped ?

All I could find was pictures... http://boxing-pics.com/arlovski_buentello/mulholland_arlovski.html they are at the bottom to the left.

It was taped and broadcast as part of the show on Bravo in the UK, dont know about the Spike televised line up in the states. It was pretty one sided. The guy he fought was a big strong ex all american wrestler (kind of looked like the old Stretch Armstrong Toy figure), who took Gannon down quick and and pounded till he opened a cut up that turned into a fight stopper. Sorry I cant remeber the oponents name- it was something like Karl Lee Crenshaw or a similar Deep south double Barrell serial Killer name

In UFC 55 Sean Gannon fought Branden Lee Hinkle and Branden won in the first round due to a technical knock out. Sean was being pounded and could not defend himself so the refree stopped the fight.

Can't remember what he really looked like but Stretch Armstrong?

You make me laugh Cord. Boy that brings back memories.

EDIT: My man Jeff "The Snowman" Monson beat Branden in UFC 57 for his debut match with that North/South Choke in the first round. Just thought I'd throw that in there.

Here's Branden's information:

You English folk must of had a cheap knock off version of Stretch Armstrong.

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.




Not gonna argue with you.

First, Kimbo's boss, the Miami porn producer is the one who used his bouncer's jail record as a marketing gimmick. If he recanted, go figure.

I don't personally believe most of the junk I read on MMA.TV, especially about people hyping themselves. I make my observations from his backyard prize fight which, all things considered, would have landed him in jail in any case.

You wanna believe his boss that Kimbo has never trained, then I have some waterfront property down here in South Florida to sell you. You can take an airboat ride over to Miami to see Kimbo "work".

I had hoped this thread would die quietly instead of fostering the kind of silliness that it has. It is now locked. If anyone has a good reason to reopen it, PM me.
