Default Kimbo! Kimbo! Kimbo!

I really rooted for the guy, and I'm happy to see him win - I thought he was gonna lose to Alexander.

I hope his knee's gonna be OK.

The two of them definitely respected the others skill. I was happy Kimbo got the win, Alexander was pissing me off with the non-stop kicks. I know that was his plan, and it was a good one, but it was weak. With time, Kimbo is going to be one of the top fighters in the world. The guy has bone breaking power behind those punches.

At first I thought Kimbo's lack of technicallity was gonna get the best of him, and **** was I wrong. Houston looked scared and intimidated, and Kimbo showed great improvement. Im glad he finally picked up a win

I did not see the whole fight, and thought that Kimbo was going to loose for sure. He must have really pulled it together. Glad to see that bad mother ****** got a win.

it was a terrible fight, i don't think a single punch was thrown for the first 2.5 minutes, and even after that neither would engage.

I haven't watched any UFC since 103 in Dallas where CroCop got his *** handed to him. Nearly every bout in that one stunk. I get the **** for free on my Mexican satellite...just tired of asking my wife for undisturbed TV time, only to be disappointed.

Talk about THE most boring fight of 2009. I root for him and understand he was probaby very nervous with all the hype, but come on...circling around like that was bad. But damn...those slams were impressive.

I am also very surprised fat country won by standing knockout.

kimbo doesnt have much time left. his knee will get worse and he's closely approaching 40. he's got a couple more good fights left, and that'll be the end of his mma career. he really doesnt have enough time left to become good, imho.

Exactly. Similar to "Big Baby" actually, who is a bit younger and has more talent, and is much more physically imposing, though he has a questionable chin.

Bones Jones impressed me on that card though he got DQed.
