    "Kimbo" vs. James Thompson at May 31 EliteXC-CBS?

    by MMAjunkie.com Staff [mmajunkie-staff] on Mar 30, 2008 at 2:16 pm in - News -
    [​IMG]The very first MMA event to appear on major U.S. network television will feature a main event with Kevin "Kimbo Slice" Ferguson (2-0).

    Unfortunately, EliteXC never announced his opponent at Saturday's co-promoted show with Strikeforce, which took place at the HP Pavilion in San Jose, Calif. The announcement was expected to be made at the event, but instead, Ferguson was called to the cage for a general introduction.

    However, according to one report, James Thompson (14-8) could be the guy to face Ferguson in May.

    The May 31 EliteXC event takes place at the Prudential Center in Newark, N.J. and airs in Saturday primetime on CBS.

    According to fiveouncesofpain.com, a rumored bout with Ron Waterman (15-5-2) never materialized because a deal couldn't be worked out. Instead, Thompson -- a British fighter who's lost six of his past eight fights -- appears to be the leading candidate.

    Ferguson, who rose to fame as underground fighter marketed on YouTube and other video-sharing sites, has since teamed up with Bas Rutten to train MMA. After an exhibition victory over Ray Mercer, Ferguson posted a 19-second TKO of Bo Cantrell and a 43-second KO of David "Tank" Abbott. Both fights took place with EliteXC, with whom Ferguson has signed a long-term contract.

    Also slated to take place at the May 31 event is a EliteXC middleweight championship bout between title-holder Robbie Lawler and Scott Smith. Additionally, Phil Baroni meets Murilo "Ninja" Rua, and Tom Murphy takes on Brett Rogers. In women's action, Gina Carano is expected to meet Kaitlin Young.

    Word, though he has lost Thompson has been in there with some heavy hitters. And he has alot more experience then Kimbo.

    This will probably look a lot like Kimbo vs Adryan

    Thompson loses the ones he's not meant to, and then surprises in the ones he should lose.

    Therefore, Thompson by flying triangle.

    Didn't he admit he learned mma by watching videos?

    he's so terrible I dont know where to begin with him

    Only thing he has going for him is rage, no fear and... he's large
     
  20. No, he actually trains with a real team and everything. Just in some interview they asked what he was doing to prepare for his opponent and he replied "I watch a lot of dvds".

    This is a smart choice because Thompson looks like a monster, so if he beats Kimbo, that'll go over well (Hay this show has giant guys that crush that kimbo internet guy!), and if Kimbo beats him, it'll look great (Hay kimbo just beat up this giant muscley guy. That guy looked tough, kimbo must be awesome).

    Kimbo will probably beat him, dude always looked awful at everything and kimbo is decent with his hands and loves to fight, Kimbo by TKO/KO 1st round.

    Actually I think I'd like him less if he was American. The fact that he's a Brit makes him even more amusing.

    The "I've watched a lot of DvDs" quote was from the lead up to his infamous Aleksander Emelianenko fight iirc.

    yea he said that and got smoked and before in his corner he was all crazy looking hitting himself.

    :ugh2:
     
  24. Thompson isn't even really a big puncher, despite his size. I guess he probably hits hard enough though.

    I wonder how Kimbo would react if Thompson really laid one on him.

    Getting hit by anyone that size hurts.

    I don't think he will actually hit Kimbo much though.
