The Kimbo vs Tank fight happened last night and here are the results. If you don’t want to know the results, don’t read any further. Instead, I have a link to the fight at the bottom of this post. Here’s the play by play according to Sherdog.com
Kevin Ferguson (Pictures) vs. David Abbott
Kimbo charged forward with a flurry of punches. A right and left hand hurt Tank as he went for a takedown. With Tank eating shots while on his knees, Kimbo was warned for hitting the back of the head. After a restart, the fight was stopped to clear the ring of an object that was thrown from the stands. Kimbo picked up the crumpled wrapper and threw it back into the crowd. An explosive scene followed, with Kimbo landing two right hands that forced Tank to take a knee. After standing, Kimbo finished Tank with a right hook and a glancing left. Tank fell face-first to the canvas at 43 seconds of the first round.
The fight went how I thought it would. Tank is getting old and hasn’t been that successful (he has one win in his last nine fights). The two of them went all out and the ref stopped it at an appropriate time. I found it interested that Kimbo got a warning (and not a point reduction like Lesnar did) for a few punches to the back of the head. Maybe a difference between EliteXC and UFC rules?
Here’s a video for the fight. Once again, I don’t know how long it will be up for.
