    Also, they're not "fat," they're "people of size."

    No, and I was talking about the first round. As Herb said in the article, there was no reason to stop the fight in the last 30 seconds for those.
    Curiosity killed the cat. But damn it had a blast.

    Actually although that fight was overhyped and lame, I think as it gets closer to the finals maybe there's more motivation for Nelson to step it up and bring a little more excitement to the table. And I bet for the live show he'll go for it. I don't fault him for not putting more into his initial fight and doing just what it takes to win. They have to do 3-4 fights within a month or 6 weeks max, no?

    I think maybe the asinine blog comments and BS about Herb Dean probably was a reaction to the Kimbo hype. It was stupid though. Herb had the best point ever - "I don't understand his comments. You want to be winning in the most decisive manner possible, not exploiting a rule to keep fighters safe".

    But hey, it's the heavyweight season. Fat people take more motivation to get started.
