i find the ground game to be the "art" of mixed martial arts, you have to watch guys who are trained to counter moves to appreciate it like moving from half or side guard to a full mount and how the guy on the bottom needs to keep a knee up to stop the other from re-positioning himself in a better way, etc.

in pride i have seen some amazing reversals and escapes. a guy is literrally getting the life chocked out of him in a rear naked choke, your saying to yourself this is over then out of nowhere thru the fighters last conscious thought he escapes . . . ive seen royce gracie in an arm bar refuse to tap out and the guy breaks his arm and gracie keeps on fighting.

if it was all standup it would be kickboxing.

lawler is the only guy with any cred in elite x and his best days are past him.

I was trying to find a way to articulate an answer That Guy's post, but you did beautifully.

Re: Kimbo slice makes network debut

I just read this morning Kimbo Slice will fight Ken Shamrock in an upcoming fight. I wish Shamrock would just submit him and end the Kimbo craze, but Ken is 44 years old so if hes not in shape hes gonna get pummeled. Thoughts?

Notes: Kimbo will face Shamrock on CBS - MMA - Yahoo! Sports

Ken should some ability against Tito still at the age of 44. I'll go ahead and say it. Unless Shamrock has just gone straight downhill phyically I think he handles Kimbo.

Shamrock is washed up.

I wish they would put Kimbo up against some real competition.

Yeah, same here.

They don't want to risk seeing him get beat, putting and end to their cash cow. As long as Kimbo keeps winning the buzz will continue. And buzz = $ in the fighting world.

Re: Kimbo slice makes network debut

Agreed. Shamrock doesn't have a chance in hell against Kimbo. He hasn't won a fight in over 4 years, and lost his last fight earlier this year in the 1st round to a jab. While he says he's in the best shape of his life, Father Time is certainly catching up to him. One quick throw and Kimbo will knock Shamrock on his ass.

Don't get me wrong...I'd love to see Kimbo get his ass handed to him, but I don't think Shamrock has a chance in hell to do so.

Re: Kimbo slice makes network debut

i don't like Shamrock, but i think you guys might be under estimating him alittle. Kimbo has exactly zero ground skills, and Shamrock is a career M.M.A guy. it wouldnt surprise me , unless the fix is in. because as you guys have said, Kimbo = money

Re: Kimbo slice makes network debut

Will Shamrock be able to get him to the ground though? I think Kimbo could knock him out cold with a good shot or two.

Re: Kimbo slice makes network debut

My doubt in Shamrock lies in that his last 5 losses have all been by strikes or punches in the 1st round. And while Shamrock would have a huge advantage if he gets Kimbo on the mat, I just don't see it happening.

Re: Kimbo slice makes network debut

i don't like MMA (once they get on the ground it gets retarded for me), but i watched kimbo's first match, so he does get outside interest...

Re: Kimbo slice makes network debut

They Kimbo/Shamrock fight was just called due to Shamrock getting a cut above his eye. What a bunch of crap! No link as of yet, but I just watched it on CBS.

Well Kimbo just got his ass handled by an average fighter who is basically not even in his weight class.

Shamrock might have actually killed Kimbo.
