Yeah, Kimbo (Kevin Ferguson) definitely needs to work his ground game more. I would have thought that a year with Bas Rutten would have done more for him but his striking is still good for a man of that size. James Thompson was supposed to be a tuna can but if the fight would have gone the distance he would have won on the score cards. I gotta say though, his freaking ear exploded. That was nasty. It was hanging like a dishrag spewing blood and then he got caught with about 3 or 4 unanswered power shots to the face and head. I don't think it would have lasted much longer anyway but wow was Kimbo gassed after. Anyway, way too much blood for network tv.
Same same for Carano. That turned out to be a pretty good fight. They both took and gave some pretty serious shots at different points. I didn't see her eye after they called it between rounds though so no idea.
Faber is going to walk right through Pulver unless he makes a very serious mistake. It would probably take a few serious mistakes in a row actually. Urijah is as good on the ground at his weight as BJ is at his and look what he did to Pulver on the ground. Jens had his day and great win over Cub Swanson but he is nowhere near, nor has he ever been, in Urijah Faber's league. BTW, Faber's parents are these hippy holistic types and growing up, he never had an innoculation shot of any kind, was (and still is I believe) a vegetarian, never took any medication of any kind, all that.
