i woould pretty much assume Kimbo and Gannon are friends today tho ..not that they were ever enemies. Gannon however did disprove to a degree that all cops are not "chairseat bound donut eating useless" city workers tho lol

i can tell you a lot of effort n planning went into making that fight happen as it was NOT a legal/sanctioned fight and Gannon being a cop on top of it coouldnt have helped his image...at the same it made for a good promotion for "Cop vs THug" marketing. 2nd of all there was the issue of safety and location . noone was going to just show in anothers "house" like some damn fool- cop or not u better bring your DAMN HOMIES on BOTH sides lol for those that did not know.... this NOT an MMA but was setup to be a standing only fistfight...however circumstances didnt exactly go that way but for the most part it was on par with the rules. ANd no Herb Dean or Big JIM nor Yamasaki were reffing this fight...in fact there was no ref.

Gannnon challenged him and made it known on the Underground...YES on the OG he made an annnoucement he woujld fight Kimbo...guesss word got to kimbo n crew and "contacts " between them ensued.Most this was embarked upon due to Kimbo ( at the time ppl were thinking it was CHris byrd n alot of confusion came up) street fight videos being shown on MMA.tv. at time as well there was alot of footage that came from BUMFIGHTS website as well... IIRC there was a guy trying to sue for his injury or something during a scuffle.

It sounds to me like Kimbo has been training mma pretty hard lately. Gannon 2, Kimbo 0.

 I would have to believe the he didn't train refers to his conditioning.  The fight lasted 10 minutes of continuous fighting.  That's pretty tough given they were going at each other the whole time.  Kimbo began to fade about the 5 minute mark.  That tells me he was in ok shape at best, but certainly not in fight shape by boxing or MMA standards.  Gannon was in pretty good shape.  He looked worn too, but that seemed to be from the head shots he took.  I heard he suffered a pretty bad concussion.  That had to slow him down considerably.  His cardio looked pretty good though.

Gannon won, no doubt.  That picture tells it all.  Gannon won on heart and balls.  The man would not give up.  Kimbo was unable to continue due to cardio, (a huge part of fighting) but while Gannon was in the hospital having his skin damage looked at, Kimbo was at the club partying with his hoes.  No doubt Kimbo did the most damage, no doubt Gannon was the winner.   Both men left it all out there and gave it their all.  One man out lasted the other.  There was no shame IMO what so ever.

 +1.  I just said nearly the exact same thing on another thread, (the Ken flo thread about the Kimbo/Gannon fight. Gannon won the fight on guts and heart.  He took a beating.  Kimbo succumbed to his lack of cardio and he shut down.  Gannon hit him hard, make no mistake, but it was his lungs that failed him and he stayed down.
