    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    James Thompson V Butterbean

    So, in my quest to understand how Thompson could be such a can, even with 25 fights, I came across this gem. The opening intro describing the match-up of these two fighters, while meant to be completely serious hype, is one of the funniest things I HAVE EVER SEEN.

    YouTube - Butterbean v James Thompson

    Ah ha ha ha ha ha haaaa! *wipes tear from eye*

    On a serious note, looking at his Sherdog record, Thompson has beaten some big names such as Yoshida and Frye, and back in '05 had racked up an impressive number of wins. But in his fights since '06 he's gone 3-7. His last two fights before Kimbo were losses, one of which was in Elite XC. They basically threw a washed up, out of shape fighter on losing streak at Kimbo and Kimbo still almost lost.

    Thompson is just a 'dong-and-dash' brawler. When the bell rings, he runs across the rings and swings wildly at his opponent. He was getting his ass kicked by Yoshida until he landed a couple big blows and turned it around. He beat Frye be basically being a younger version of Frye, but with a better chin and not so much wrestling. He was always a jobber, but he was put on a big show and was able to beat some even bigger jobbers as well as the two prevously mentioned veterans.

    I saw the title of this thread, and thought "Dear God, are they really going to have a rematch."
    I died a little inside.

    I hate to say it (as i train at shootfighters) but Cage Rage is one of the cheesiest promotions going.

    Butterbean actually gave a considerably better performance against Thomson than Kimbo managed.
