Kimbo Slice

10 posts in this topic

He got winded and looked bad, If he were to fight one of the elite guys with an all around game he'd lose. I think he could beat anyone in the stand up game though, man he's got heavy hands.

Also that Carano girl is awesome, she's hot and she could kick my ....... you know.

The Lawler fight was awesome, too bad the finger in the eye put an end to it.

My stupid DVR stopped recording right before this fight so I missed it. The other fights were pretty good, the ladies put on a top notch show.

I was up watching this the other night too. Kimbo can throw some punches man. The way he popped that guys ear was crazy. I think it was probably a good thing the ref called that one cause he was about to go nuts on the guy.

I also have to agree that the Lawler fight was awesome, people were booing but they just don't understand. I was bummed that they called it after Smith got the finger in his eye. Lawler even seemed like he didn't want it to end just as bad as Smith wanted to keep going.

I can say that I will watch more if they put them on TV again.

I think there was SomethingFishy about that fight.

grin

They should have stopped the fight in the 2nd when Thompson was dropping elbows on Kimbos face for a minute straight. Kimbo couldnt defend at all. But then he wouldnt be undefeated.

One of these days he'll get put up against a real pro (Thompson isnt the best MMA fighter, he's big, but he gets beat consistantly) so hopefully Kimbo works on the ground game and submissions so as they wont have to tell the ref who should win.

Kimbo is deadly for the first round, after that he's a gonner if it stays on the ground. If it was a stand up match he'd win every time but it's mma and somebody is gonna tune him up sooner or later.

And yeah I agree with polars, that lawler fight was awesome, nothing to boo about. I'll definately watch the rematch.

That guy Kimbo was fighting had a jaw like Tex Cobb. If he hadn't popped the ear tumor, a few more knocks to the chin would have ended the match.

Kimbo has little mat skill so he likely will never be an MMA stud. They'll keep throwing soup cans at him because he's a draw.

That Elite XC was kind of a joke if you ask me? Rapper's, dancer's, and even the fighters coming out to some of this (Baroni)! Robbie Lawlers fight and the two women were great! The fight stoppages were bad! Kimbo was gettig hit by baby hammer fists, and elbows as his opponent was gassed. Then Kimbo rocks his goofy looking opponent later in the fight and they stop it? Heck he had him rocked earlier in the fight also.They stood them up earlier in the fight when Kimbo was getting beat on? What a joke, reminds me of the WWE! It was fun to watch some of it, but definatley leagues away from the UFC!

I thought that CBS put too much sensorship on it. I mean 2 fights that were called due to a couple scratches on the face.

I think they were afraid to show blood on TV...that was my opinion. The chick fight, that girl was fine and they called it because she got a scratch under her eye? come on...way too cautious for me. I turned it off after the lawler fight.

    • Love the curvature of the antlers.   Beautiful mount!
    • Not a monster for sure but he makes the season a success. I wasnt going to be able to hunt tomorrow because of a first communion, not afternoon today because of my dads birthday, and only evenings Monday&Tuesday.  So time was limited and i am more than happy to eat jake. Here he is.
    • Either I'm slackin', or the sun is rising earlier than it did last year! Didn't make it to the river until 6, but surprisingly I was still the first to arrive  walked to my normal starting spot, but once there, something told me to go out of the ordinary. So I packed away my black panther martin and put on a crayfish husky jerk. I didn't catch the trophy I desired, but I did catch some nice ones, with the biggest being about 15 inches. I ventured farther downstream than I ever had before, and wanted to keep going, but it appeared that the fishing easement ended, and I may have been on private property. I stayed in the river the entire time, but didn't want to push my luck, so I went back upstream. Caught 19 total, probably lost at least as many. Surprisingly, no brook trout though. 
    • Oh yeah, a lot of the newer 1/2 tons have frame rust issues as well.  If you want a serious off-road machine, you need to go back to the models with the straight front axles, and of course, they're getting harder to find in decent shape too.  Especially in the rust belt.  You can still find solid older trucks if you head west, young man...        
    • Just to be clear- The wrangler wasn't introduced until 87 so at least compare apples to apples and having owned ford,chevy and dodge trucks of the Wrangler era I can testify they all have issues. My 08 Ram had more frame and fender rust than my older Jeep. The Chevy's have plenty of frame issues as well. Yes. It's a concern but if you want something like this,there is no better alternative.   https://www.google.com/search?q=chevy+frame+rust+problems&client=opera&hs=Lrs&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwjAnPz1kMrTAhVpw4MKHSs9B1UQ_AUICigB&biw=800&bih=381
    •   Good questions. You have 3 body style configurations to choose from.  The YJ body was made from 87-97 and that had either a 4 cyl or an inline 6. It had leaf springs and a pretty spartan interior IMO. Some serious off roaders liked the leaf springs but they rode pretty rough IMO.   I feel the 4 cyl is anemic especially with bigger tires. The 4.0 inline 6 is bulletproof, has decent torque and power and fits the Jeep about perfectly. In the YJ series the manual transmission seemed like a better option in my experience.   The TJ ran from 98-06. This version replaces leaf springs with coil over shocks. Mine is an 06 and has the dana rear with the 4.0 and auto trans. I have BFG AT KO 32x10s and on gravel they have taken out 2 side mirrors by throwing rocks at them.    I prefer the TJ series. It has better suspension and interior than the YJ while keeping the original drive train. Fuel economy pretty much sucks as you are essentially driving a brick. I probably get about 12 MPG. If they had done a diesel I would think the wrangler could get 30 but...   The JK series replaced the TJ and was a pretty radical redesign. The body is wider, the drivetrain is totally different and the interior was upgraded quite a bit as well. They went to a pentastar V6 instead of the inline 4.0. trans was upgraded as well. They also started to sell the 4 door unlimited which gives more interior space as well. The new ones are much more civilized and refined which is great for taking the top off and driving to the lake or beach. OTOH they are expensive and harder to justify taking off the top and heading into the woods to hunt or find mud. 
    • Yes, you do have to have at least a weak cell signal and battery for the GPS to work. I know that can be challenging at times in the woods.
    •   Not sure about the new V6, but the old inline 6 was bulletproof, and had a lot of low end torque, which is a desirable feature in an off-road vehicle.       Any 1/2 ton pickup truck from the 70's and early 80's in particular, had a much better frame than a Jeep.  Body panels rust in all of them.   Not saying this is a deal-breaker for a Jeep, just something to watch for, since it is a very common problem.
