    It's been threatened before, but is this the first time it actually happened?

    Very fitting that Ken Shamrock was present to witness it.

    Now that Koscheck's in Bellator, hopefully all of the fighters on his cards aren't afraid of getting their ass cheeks motorboated.

    Y'all are giving Kimbo way too much credit. Dada was severely beaten by a lack of cardio and too much body fat. Kimbo's last punch didn't even connect, and he was also gasping for air most of the fight.

    It wasn't nearly as brutal as something like Tank vs. Matua.

    I love that as Dada is stumbling away into the living death, Kimbo goes right into his pose from the Houston Alexander fight again.

    That's Kimbo's winning pose.

    I'm somewhat surprised neither fighter trained a single session for such a well promoted fight. I think the fighters on Bum Fights were better prepared

    Dada cutting that weight was beyond ridiculous, kimbo Knees are so shot I don't think he could run.

    nope. Big John said they weren't hitting each other with hard shots. He said halfway through the first round he oculd see neither of them had anything at all on their punches.

    I hope it's in the next UFC game to unlock for my created fighter to use.

    Thanks. I wondered why it ended the way it did. Cutting weight wasn't my guess. That's fucking absurd.

    Why do people insist on spreading nonsense here? Dada did not cut 40 pounds the week of the fight.

    Truns out that is false. According to Dada and his family he cut 40 lbs over the course of nearly 4 months and was only 2 lbs over the limit leading up to the fight.

    His family also claims he had a boxing coach for 3 1/2 months. Watching him hit the mitts, it doesn't look like he had a boxing coach for 3 1/2 minutes (after which he would be winded).
