I think Thompson's training with Team Couture made him less of a can than EliteXC realized, which resulted in the fake looking stoppage. Kimbo himself looked like a pretty big can, with his bad grappling and poor cardio.

Not to mention, how demoralizing must it be to dominate someone like that and not get ref stoppage after more than 60 seconds? True, Kimbo got up when the round ended, but who can seriously argue that he had been intelligently defending himself?

Think they picked Thompson because they thought he would rush Kimbo (like he tries with all opponents), try and keep it standing but get knocked out because of his glass jaw.
Obviously he came in with a game plan this time & almost (and could of if he wasnt robbed!) tooled Kimbo.
Kimbo seems ok and its not his fault he is being Waaaayyy over hyped, he seems to know he is not all that yet.....
Always tell my mates who diss MMA that it is nothing like WWF.... damn glad they didnt see this ****....

He beat Frye in a slug-off, but I think everyone has a glass jaw compared to 'Ironhead' Fujita.

In Kimbo's defense: No, you're MOM is all about the money.
Good one, right?
