Re: Bas Rutten training Kimbo! (video)
I didn't see much from Kimbo at all. What you need to see is the sparring work. He comes foward throws a cross left hook then a knee, that tells me nothing.
I see him on the ground banging a bag, that tells me maybe he's working on one aspect of gnp. Was he a wrestler?
Well, if he was and Mercer isn't training to counter gnp and takedowns, this will be an easy fight for Kimbo to win as all he has to do is take him down and punch a guy on the ground who has no clue as to how to deal with fighting in that situation.. Some training in ground and pound, wrestling background is huge over someone who is purely relying on fighting on their feet..
If Kimbo fights standing up, he's done.. If he takes Mercer to the ground, which I expect he will try to have a prayer in this fight, he will win.. Mark my words.
