SpennyBenny -  Man KenFlo used to post here? This thread is Gold. Thanks MB Phone Post

 Almost all the pros used to post here, until the TUF n00b trolls ran them off.  I know you think 01'ers are elitist and we are just giving 10'ers shit to be dicks etc.  But after '05 when the Ultimate fighter started and MMA really blew up this place went to shit, and most of the pro fighters don't post anymore.  Although I'm sure they still lurk.

MattBenwa - Was was an historic MMA.tv event right there - was glad I was there to see it!

+1

Obviously I had a different SN back then, but it was pretty amazing to watch that fight come together

I got there late. I was at a bar and asked where my buddy went and I was told he struck up a conversation with some guys and went to a boxing match. I was like ?!? As I was walkin out I guy told me where to go. .… I show up and I wasn't allowed in so I waited then all of a sudden limbo slice stumbles in a car. Then I c my buddy and he waves me in and I saw the mist damaged face I'd seen yet Gannon looked like shit but he was celebrating! Everything was foggy from body heat. Pretty interesting. Then I went to Boston Beer Works. YUM Phone Post

You aren't telling even a bit of truth. Why would you lie about being somewhere that you weren't. I was there and I know pretty much everyone that was there. You don't even know where this happened do you??

Nobody was at Beer Works cause the "sparring match" was in Rhode Island.

 i remember guys on here connected to kimbo saying "lol at anyone thinking these guys got paid for this sparring session"
i say lol that theyd lump up their faces for free. and lord knows some gambling went down too.

JonnySweats - I remember watching this on the net not long after it happened. It was clear that Gannon had far superior boxing, if he hadn't gassed he would of finished Kimbo much earlier.
Lol at the constant changing of the rules by the kimbo team, I half expected them to shout "no head-shots allowed" at one point


Really? I thought opposite. I thought Kimbo clearly had the superior boxing landing cleaner harder punches that appeared to cause more damage to Gannon. Gannon appeared to be a more well rounded overall fighter ie conditioning, knees, submissions etc. I would say under the boxing only rules that kimbo would have been the victor if he did not gas.

10ers gon 10, son. Boxing has many dimensions including stamina, combinations, ability to adjust, footwork, etc.

This was not modern Peter McNeely boxing rules. For starters, You're aware there was a 30 count....
