Title: Pride Had It Right
Post by: ocianain on February 22, 2016, 09:21:46 PM
So, the guy who fought Kimbo flat lined and they saved him in the hospital! Props to the hospital staff, one and all, but why did this happen? It happened because two huge guys had to conform to rules meant for fighters. Watching the fight it's hard to believe Dada-5000 did any cardio, Kimbo did just a wee bit more, so a guy almost dies because the farce must be maintained? Pride had it right, works save lives.

I haven't followed mma for some time, I didn't know Kimbo Slice was still in the game.  I read some articles on the fight and it looks like it should never have happened.

Bump the heavyweight limit to 285...or no ceiling at all.
