meathead by KO 1st rnd
I would have said the same thing if this fight had taken place immediately after their ultimate fighter season, but now that they've both had time to prepare and work out full time with pro coaches I give the edge to Kimbo. He seems a lot more hungry and willing to evolve than Mitrione and I think he'll surprise us with some ground fighting.
I agree meathead by KO. He has the power to KO kimbo, and the size. to tire Kimbo out he should be alot stronger. with Duke Rufus improving his striking. it's nap time fore mr Ferguson.
I am not calling this fight either way but there is no way meathead is stronger. Kimbo is one solid muscle.
i would have to say that this "muscle" on kimbo is from steroids in his younger days, and i would imagine that he really isnt all that strong
except meathead is like 30-40 lbs bigger then bimbo
you got alot of weak marks but i have to agree with you kimbo is the front runner for the steroids suspicion. if you look at him he is short and has a small frame absoulutley packed with muscle it looks a lot less natural many others that have been ridiculed for suspected steriod abuse. mittrone by tko kimbo seems like a nice guy but he is too old started too late has a weak chin and limited skill and conditioning. if you watche the fight with mittrone vs big baby(who is much bigger and stronger than kimbo with a way better ground game) matt had no problem getting back to his feet and knocking him out
Hmmm.....Really just baseless accusations.
same reason. kimbo by ground and pound first round
nice nice. u just throw random comments out like that on command or do u sit back and think about them for a minute???
Amazing to see people picking Kimbo in UFC fights. A guy who got famous beating up street-goons on Youtube. I picked him... And, I have to say that I can't imagine not watching one of his fights. Just like everyone here will. He seems like a nice guy too, which is weird because he just looks mean.
He's going to be able to take Matt down. Not as effortlessly as he did with Houston, but I think he can do it. The take-downs in his last fight were beautiful. And he just looks built for ground-and-pound.
Yeah but if you think about it...he took down a much lighter Houston Alexander, who was running away the whole fight and didn't even try that hard to capitalize when Kimbo closed the distance on him. Mitrione won't let him do that with his reach, and he is also going to be much tougher to get onto the ground.
That's why he said "Not as effortlessly as he with Houston..."
Yeah... There are a lot of reasons that Houston should be much easier to take down than Matt. Just looking at his body-type, narrow waste and top-heavy upper-body. It's just easier to get your arms around Houston... But, Kimbo did to Houston what any powerful fighter with good take-downs should do. Dumped him on his head with excellent technique.
And if you look at Kimbo's build the guy should be able suplex a clydesdale. He can take Matt down I think. I predict that Kimbo will win fights on the ground, his base will be awesome, he'll smash people from full mount.
If kimbo shaves and takes a shower, I ive the fight to Mittrione, otherwise the fight goes to kimbo - win by suffocation :-p
As James Toney would say
Its cause James Toney is a bluber mouthed boxer that likes to run his fat lip
Yeah, Toney will have his big day lying flat on his back eating Couture's fists and elbows.
kimbo beat houston with ease, if he didnt keep running in circles kimbo would have knocked his ass out in the second. Alexander is way more experienced than meathead so i say kimbo FTW
I got Kimbo as well. I want to say that to start. However, what was the deal with that fight anyways? I cant look at that fight and give Kimbo alot of props because Houston didnt even show up!! It was a shell of Houston. Just didnt make sense!? Alexander has always came out with nasty intentions, throwing haymakers.....I dunno what that was, maybe fear?? Who knows?!
i'm guessin alexander's pockets got greased by dana, there's no way he was gonna have one of the largest draws in MMA period lose his first fight, i know that sounds absurd, just a little food for thought, and i just like seeing how you clowns react to these comments, i get a kick outta reading this shit
I don't know who will win but I am cheering on Kimbo. The guy is just so damn likable.
I'm picking Kimbo and will be interested to see if he takes Meathead down or just stands in front of him throwing bombs. I think he might surprise some people as the public eye has been on him as just a "street thug" and there are plenty of doubters. Either way I feel he has the edge, and I'm sure he has learned a lot since TUF ended, so it will be interesting to see if he utilizes that knowledge. I was amazed at how humble he was on TUF and actually have more respect for the guy than I did before it started. I figured he would get in a fight on the first day of filming and get kicked off the show immediately but he proved that he is more than willing to learn and put the time in to be a legit MMA fighter.
kimbo has already given us his game plan dude. he wants it standing and to knock him out or be knocked out, 'the old school way'.
Maybe he will, maybe he won't. How many times has a fighter "revealed" his game plan and then done the exact opposite? Too many times to count. We won't know for sure until he gets in the cage, will we "dude".
i think your both right i reckon he will stand and trade and if the opportunity presents itself he'll go for a take down for sum GnP.
Matt's a don dada!
Didn't i make a poll like this one before??
Meathead FTW! serious underdog here! Let's see bimbo slice get KO'd. whoever wins, either way, i think its safe to say these dudes won't let it out of the second round
MeatHead the underdog????
Hahahahaha!!! You have no idea do you?? Kimbo beat the shit out of Huston Alexaner which really surprised me, I'f he can do that he can beat MeatHead. MeatHead honestly has no style what so ever in my opinion, he is a brawler that only knows how to get off his ass then throw punched, thats a brawler.
Kimbo knows some good ground, he know submissions and he is improving is stand up game as well from being a brawler to something else *i have no idea yet*. I think Kimbo will give MeatHead a really good ass kicking.
Kimbo is the underdog here with way more fight experiance street and mma.
Kimbo will win via KO 1st or 2nd round.
Meathead by slow motion KO 1st round.
If not, he is gassed and will be layed on for next 2 rounds. Not an exciting fight from exceptionally talented fighters, more an average dude slugfest.
Meathead will win for sure... he is still sort of a douche
He is a big douche rag and will lose for sure if you ask me.
only a retard tells people their opinion is wrong, BTW no one asked you.
Kimbo by decision after taking Matt down in every round.
Big baby had better ground game then Kimbo, and he got KTFO !
Houston has gay leg kicks, and was knocking Kimbo down with them...
Kimbo has a bad knee, really bad knee...
Meathead by KO 1st round
But BigBaby has no chin, and no stand up skills, BigBaby might be a really nice guy but honestly he wasn't that bright during that fight. He was flailing his arms in the air not attempting to throw any punchs and was focused on taking him down *Which got him knocked out*
Your right about Huston having baby leg kicks but the only kick that was good and affective was the wrong that dropped him.
Kimbo might have arthridis in his knee but its not bad anymore, he even said during the post fight conferance of the Huston mix, he just looked bod in that fight cause he didnt handle the weight cut that well.
In my mind after all that i just said i still think Kimbo would win by KO or decision. He would surprize me if he got a submission in that fight.
"One" not "Wrong"
"Bad" not "Bod"
Mitrione won't be cut dude. He has to lose 3 fights in a row before he gets cut.
Why do you people think this is weak?? If Mittrione loses too many fights, he will be cut.
Im pulling for Kimbo. Idk if he will win, ill be happy if he does but a loss wil ljust be another learning experience. I just wana see how much he has improved since TUF and the Houston fight. I just wana see a well rounded fighter not the back-yard brawler that he used to be.
I want Kimbo to win but I think age and war injuries will end his mma career.
kimbo by excellent "commitmentship" in his training
Hahah I know I just watched a video in 2.0 where he said he is gonna knock Matt out "and solidify that the era of who I am.." Hahah I got mad love for the dude, but I get embarrassed for him when he talks!!
i think it's funny how so many people think kimbo will win. Hmmm...lemme think about this. His knee is shot, he has chicken legs, his cardio sucks, and then when he fought a much heavier opponent (big country) he got crucified...twice! lol sure kimbo has great stand-up, but don't you think mitrione will do the same as big country? Alexander should have tried the same, but we all know he sucks and that's why he got cut as soon as he lost to kimbo. Kimbo does have the will and drive to learn more, but the fact is that he's aging (arthritis on the knee should make that apparent), so how good can he be when he's pretty much starting from scratch at 36?
I can see this fight being slow and ugly and going to mitrione via split decision.
lol. soapyasscheeks... filthy!
Im torn in this fight. idk who i want to win. but all i know is, it'll be a damn shame if someone doesn't get Ko'd
Mitrione wins by TKO or armbar at 1st round... (matt is a piece of **** but kimbo is a joke like a fighter, no ground game, no cardio, no kicks, just some punchs!!! If kimbo lose this fight go back the barbacue fights against the amazing Big Mac...)
