    that's what happens when you are an incredibly out of shape "street fighter" pretending to be a real athlete.

    Big difference. That was a legit beating from an elite (and much bigger) fighter. Kimbo didn't do much damage to Dada. Junk food, poor preparation and 38 years of questionable livin' almost did him in.

    Having said all that, I certainly hope he recovers and either (a) never fights again or (b) takes training and weight cutting more seriously next time. If he has to fight again, his best option is to get in better shape and walk around at no more than about 270 pounds.

    I don't think that Coker is crazy enough to roll those dice again.
     
  8. I hope he got paid well at least.

    No they won't. The scale is a bigger threat than the cage is.

    He's got to get his weight up before he's discharged from the hospital.

    I think you're being dramatic. Although Dada was a pretty big oversight, I don't see it happening again.

    People can make fun of Dada but the fact of the matter is he lasted way longer against kimbo than Tank Abbott ever could yet tank doesn't get made fun of in the same way.

    I don't get the outrage... that's just the time it takes for him to catch his breath.
