    This episode made kimbo look good as a person and portrayed him in a more positive light as opposed to the street fighting thug. I was happy to see that as i have been a fan.

    That being said not sure how anyone can claim kimbo made improvements as a fighter. Nelson has average to below average stand up, but has pretty good takedowns and a great ground game. Kimbo has zero ground but has pretty heavy hands and his goal is to slug it out.

    Kimbo landed a few nice shots but was taken down put in dominant positions in each round and punched in the head until the round ended or the ref stepped in.

    I felt bad that kimbo was put with quite possibly the worst coaches on earth. Not that anyone could really help him against nelson on the ground but it would least be worth a shot to teach him a few techniques to get back to his feet.

    Even though it was not a good fight by any stretch, I liked last week's fight becasue it reminded me of my performance at my last Judo tournament. I was so out of shape that I needed to rest with hands on knees during the match. Watching the show I was feeling exactly what Shivers was going through. The big guy did have fight in him despite having nothing left in the tank, he was preparing for a third round before a decision was called. Compared that to the Brit last season, who refused to answer the bell in the third becasue he was tired.
    You're a heavyweight too, right?

    We should setup a judo match between you and Adolf. (we were trying to broker a wrestling match between VAK and CAP, but that never materialized)

    Is it just me or did Kimbo look timid on his feet? The other times I've seen him fight he just came out swinging. Last night he looked like he was a bit nervous on his feet and too scared to be taken down to really let his hands go. I also agree with whoever said that Dana doesn't get Nelson's sense of humor. He was happy that he beat "the guy" and made fun of himself instead of upstaging Kimbo.

    I didn't think that other than trying to keep the fight standing (he was winning that portion of the fight)

    I agree that he was winning the stand up, it just seemed like he did more circling and feinting than actually throwing punches. I know that Nelson is no Tank Abbott, but I just thought he would really press on his feet and throw more combinations. In fact, did he throw any combinations?

    I don't think that would be wise Claudale. If I remember correctly, my would be opponent has admitted to not even knowing standard arm bar defense. LoL. It would be a technical mismatch and most likely a physical mismatch, (in my favor) as well.

    I do not pick on the weak, I challenge myself against formidable competition. That's why I train at a pro MMA gym. I go with guys 25 years younger than me and even greater. Weighting in at 100 kilos, I typically go with guys in the range of up to 130 kilos. Lets keep things friendly here on the inter webs Claudale, and not lead anyone to slaughter. You know of my international achievements and I suspect you want to see our friend here humiliated, (or worse).

    You hit the nail on the head. We was very concerned about gettin gout of position and being taken down. A lot of inexperience fans think that you can just throw your hands like normal in an MMA setting and that just isn't accurate. The threat of kicks and take downs changes everything.

    Thank you for your kind thoughts and concern for my health, I have been in plently of physical and technical mismatches in both Judo and wrestling so I am not afraid of another one. I am always up for a challenge and I am not easily humilated or I would quit competing 15+ years ago.

    I was previously aroud 210-215 while heavyweight in Judo is above 220 lbs.
    I am in process of getting in shape and dropping to 198 for an upcoming tournament, the Master Pan-Am Championship which is in the Boston area this year. Training the way you do it would seem like an excellent tournament for you, Adolph.

    Cetainly European Judo is far superior the US Judo and I am always willing to learn. Most US Judo colub teach very little about arm bar escapes. Basic philosphy to defend against arm bars is to not get in them and then tap if you do. I have been attending some Ju-Jitsu classes recently and have learned arm bar escapes that are new to me, so I will admit my previous knowledge was incomplete.

    ODH thank you for your mature and respectful commentary. Please accept my comments as a gesture of good will and positive interaction. My points were not directed toward you, nor did I intend any of them to come across in the slightest bit derogatory. The issue here is Claudale trying to instigate an internet challenge. If you follow my posts, you know very well that I am well above such childish behavior. As a Judo expert, I make sure to use my god given talents and decades of knowledge for the sake of teaching others or in the rare instance, combat. I am pleased to learn that you have advanced your knowledge and understanding in the arm bar, (a favorite of mine) and are continuing to develop as a Judo player. Kudos to you sir and perhaps one day we will cross paths and a friendly exhibition can be arranged.
    Lets go Brent!
