I didnt even hear about this fight.
I just heard Kimbo was going to fight Ken Shamrock in a few.
guess that isnt happening now.
never heard of Petrocelli before.


EDIT: it's Petruzelli, and he replaced Shamrock after Shamrock was headbutted by his trainer earlier that day.

Shamrock cut his eye in training the day of the fight, so Petrocelli( a former national Karate champ) took the offer to fight...what a lucky break.They squared off, threw a couple punches,Petrocelli backed up using a couple front kicks when Kimbo came in, then caught him with a straight punch to the jaw, his knees went out, he went down face first and Petrocelli jumped on him like a spider and never let him breathe, the ref stopped it after half a dozen unanswered punches.

Yeah, i had noticed when Kimbo fought the cop he didn't exactly have an iron jaw, he looked wobbly more than once when he got caught.The other street guys just didn't have the know how, you can't go toe to toe with that guy he'll kill ya.

Kimbo exposed as farce

Final curtain for the Kimbo show

SUNRISE, Fla. – The legend of Kimbo Slice was built by beating bums in boat yards and back alleys not far from here. It came crashing down Saturday courtesy of a quick punch from a pink-haired journeyman giving up two inches in height, four in reach and 30 pounds in muscle and might.

One simple shot sent Slice to the canvas and from there some guy named Seth Petruzelli needed just 12 punches and 14 seconds to put an end (we hope) to one of the great sporting charades of all time.

It was just a matter of time before Kimbo got exposed. He was little more than a character out of central casting, a bunch of addictive YouTube videos and a lot of insane hype by CBS, which made him a headliner before he made himself a fighter.

The truth was always coming for Kimbo. Saturday it arrived sooner rather than later, the money train grinding to a halt courtesy of a smaller, less heralded fighter that no one can claim is some elite champion.

No, this was it. It’ll never be the same, not for the fighter and not, perhaps, for his entire promotion that just lost its signature star on top of the $58 million it’s burned the past two years.

Afterward, EliteXC execs tried to paint a bright future but admitted they needed a drink. Lower-level employees used gallows humor about finding new jobs.

Kimbo just said he was going home to see his kids.

In 14 seconds flat, the whole mirage was gone.

It's looks like half the punches he threw missed Kimbo.

the one that sent Kimbo to the floor was a half cocked punch to the nose.
"watch at 4:43 on the long version link above".
then once down he pounded him fast. not much of a fight.

Kimbo is a street thug and ruining our sport. I am glad he lost. We came too far to let this guy make a specticle of it. It took so long for us to get legislation and right when it gets speed Elite XC brings this guy in. No wonder Elite XC lost 50 mil and going under. I am not a fan of how Dana White treats the fighters but he atleast appreciates the guys that spent years cross training to be complete fighters. Affliction needs the support. They are filled with talent that won't let the UFC lock them into shady contracts. My training partner of 12 yrs Red Shafer just beat one of their poster boys Houtson Alexander in his 4th fight for the UFC. He only got paid $10k to show, $10 to win while Houtson got $30k/$30k. By the time you take out taxes, and payoff trainers etc Red took home about $8k. And the UFC even makes them pay $2k for their physical & drug testing! McCain has some valid points that there needs to be a Union to protect these guys. However, the minute anyone speaks out they get axed. The sport is so mainstream now that they can get guys on a moments notice to jump in for $1000 or less to show and $1000 to win while the UFC is pulling in Millions off the PPV's and Attendance. I know first hand the training and body abuse that my friends take. The guys that lay it on the line need to be rewarded alot better.

By the way goto www.mma-tv.net and set up an account. You can see all the fights for free on the net live and after the fights from around the world.

lol

kimbo was overrated and all hype by XC for cash he beat up nobody's for youtube half the time his hommies would step in and restart anytime it went to the ground or wasn't in his favor i know there was a video of him being beat by a cop in a basement in upstate new york i think it was i also heard he got knocked out sparing at his camp at least he got some cash out of it but against a real ranked opponent i think the result will be the same

Purse for that fight.

Kimbo-$500,000

Seth-$50,000

I wish I could be overrated and make $500k in 14 secs. Oh, and be a complete ass at the press conference also. Classy move in turning his back to the guy. Afterwards, his "posse" threatened Seth and two of his cornermen in the lockeroom. That guy really needs to disappear. He beat an old Tank Abbott and guy with a Glass Chin and who had califlower ear puss swollen the size of an elephant's ear.
