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.
