Or Kimbo , just stick to a simple and basic gameplan , and follow some solid instructions , keep Mercer on the ground...g&p him , win by TKO or UD.
I don't think that Kimbo is stupid. I have seen him go for takedowns in two of his fights that are only stand up rules. So I think that if he gets hit his instincts will take over and he will go for a takedown right away. Mercer seems so weak in the legs these days that he is going to be an easy target for takedowns. Especially since his introduction into K-1 when he had his legs kicked to death.
