So did the casual fan tune in for Royce-Shamrock or Kimbo?

    Of course, I realize many tuned in for both. But let's say the event had Royce-Shamrock without Kimbo-Dada and vice versa, which would have had better ratings?

    Sad thing is if a casual fan turned in for either of the fights they will remain casual fans at best.

    The whole show was just a disaster. I'll be interested in the ratings but at the same time regardless of the ratings I'm sure Spike might just say enough is enough of the wash up fighters. No way from a sport or entertainment view can anyone call this event a success.

    I watched for the Royce/Ken fight. I wanted to Royce to win but not that way.

    Kimbo/Dada 5000 was for the casuals. Gracie/Shamrock 3 was for hardcore fans with minimal shame.

    Both fights, to me, were horrible. I can't even...I don't...know.

    My wife stayed up to watch Kimbo fight, we laughed harder than when we went to a local comedy show. Sapp/Akebono 2 was not entertaining in any way. Kimbo/Dada 5K was entertaining.

    It's the last phrase that got me. I mean, it's funny because it's true.

    No doubt. Sapp-Akebono was the worst fight I've seen maybe ever. Kimbo vs Dada delivered.

    All joking aside, I sincerely hope Dada survives.

    Imagine what Brett Rogers would have done to Kimbo back in the day? I remember Rogers asking for that fight but I'm sure after the Arlovski KO there was no way they were going anywhere near that. Now Rogers has lost so many fights I can't believe he ever KO'd Arlovski. He hung in there with Fedor and then apparently after that the wheels just fell off.
