He traded about half a dozen punches, none of which landed cleanly.
In a boxing match he gets owned. In an MMA match against an MMA fighter he gets owned. In a street fight against a guy who wasn't afraid of him, he already got owned.
Folks just love Kimbo because he looks mean, but there are harder guys in my neighbourhood and probably in yours too.
It's just that the REAL hard men don't feel the need to shout about it and put their fights on the internet. They just hospitalize people on the DL.
