Did Kimbo REALLY knock that guys eye out???

1st post, hope it isnt too off topic.

Did kimbo slice ACTUALLY knock that guys eye out in the backyard fight? I remember seeing the end where his eye was bulging, but did the guy really lose it?

Also, if Kimbo has that much power in his fists, who the HELL would want to fight him? I would think this would limit the people who would want to fight him. If he has that kind of destructive power in his fists, might we see a repeat of this?

ok, did he lose his eye, or was it just swollen temporarily?

Kimbo does not have great power. he was hitting someone in the face with an ungloved fist repeatedly and he never knocked the guy out. If Kimbo had great power he would have dropped the guy out cold when he connected after one or 2 hits. Kimbo is a myth and has nothing to offer MMA except the "Freak show" factor of a Giant Silva or Akibono type of a character.

I was reading on a forum (maybe last year) where this guy, apparently, a friend of Kimbo and was there at the time, claimed that Byrd/Bird (Kimbo's opponent), did indeed lose an eye. He was strangely respectful about telling the story.
