    No. He was a bare knuckle brawler with no wrestling experience. Why would he want to wrestle? That is how he chose to fight.

    Then he became an MMA fighter where anything was allowed. I think common sense dictated him taking the fight to the ground since he was fighting an ex WBO title holder. He was winning on his feet anyway to be honest.

    Ray Mercer +175

    Kimbo Slice -215

    These were the odds at Bodog for the fight. I don't know **** about this but it looks like they had Mercer a head by alot, if I am reading it correctly. That being said I can't believe people still don't give Kimbo his props for this fight. He was supposed to lose according to this. I would think this company has people who are in the know come up with these odds since they have money on this.

    props to kimbo. i havent gotten to see the fight but i expected it to be in rays favor on the feet and kimbos on the ground. looks like kimbos training paid off and mercer wasnt ready for a NON boxing FIGHT! boxing with someone is totally different then actually "fighting" them.

    lol at kimbo vs sapp .... itd deff be an endurance test but i see sapp landing too many hard blows in the first 30 seconds.

    Kimbo has decent head movement and Sapp has a **** chin. But I'd favor Sapp.

    sapp vs hoost was pretty good. hoost has better kicking skills than kimbo but if sapp throws some good kicks on kimbo he might fall easily. but yeah sapps like a big ass ogre.

    Well, for my part I would never say boxing is a "superior" sport. That is a ridiculous concept in my opinion. How can one sport be "superior" to any other?? Ridiculous. They are just different.

    What I find funny is how people talk about MMA being closer to a real fight, like that's something to be proud of. Who cares - it still ISN'T a real fight. If I want to see a real fight I'll start one in a bar. That isn't why I watch boxing.

    All these threads with hysterical titles like "told you fools...all yall that was hatin on kimbo slice...man up and take your L" imply that it was some major event an something to shout about. And imply that we should be shocked by the result.

    Look, there was a large contingent who were predicting a huge blowout by Mercer just because he was a boxer and in there mind any boxer is going to "starch the bum" when they fight an MMA fighter (which to call Kimbo that is a stretch), thats who this thread is directed to, you are obviously not one of those people, so this thread is not directed at you, so you are not "supposed to be shocked" it is just a way of showing a few idiots how wrong they are.

    Well, they were idiots. I agree.

    In an MMA fight the one who has more MMA training will win, especially if they are younger and fitter. It's a no-brainer.

    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.
