Why Kimbo should be embarassed?

Seth Petruzelli was coming off of a 1 year pay off. He was too small to beat the heavy weights on TUF2. He was scheduled to fight as a LHW. Kimbo got hit by Tank Abbott and wasn't hurt but got TKOed by Seth Petruzelli.

I understand people are happy and all, and I was glad to see him lose, but this is just sad. A bunch of people are acting like ******* retards. Sure he lost, but you guys are going overboard. Seth was better, it was a clean jab (lol) and Kimbo got rocked. The fight ended.

He was gracious in defeat (Kimbo has problems with interviews I guess heh) but then he shook Seth's hand. He wasn't ranting or anything. Why are you guys acting like the way you are. Your acting like the first time you got laid, just be happy for the win, but lay off the insults.

Act like your ******* grown or act like you have some damn sense.

I take no personal Joy in Kimbo's loss. I like Kimbo, but the Elite XC marketing machine just exploded. Kimbo will still be a draw and I'm sure he will put many a person on their ass in the future but he can't be sold to the people the same way anymore. Kimbo just learned a lesson about the dangers of swingging for the fences and I believe he'll learn from it

I would've been more happy with the loss had both fighters been prepared for each other. I know Seth wasn't prepared to fight Kimbo either, but it's a crappy situation to be in. Especially for Kimbo in the regard that he trained for a guy that WAS going to take it to the ground, SAID he was going to take it to the ground, and then had to fight a guy who probably WONT take it to the ground. That should have been a good thing for Kimbo, in any of his other fights, where standup was all he knew, but you know he spent a lot of time on his ground game, or at least take down defense, and that was probably fresh on his mind. Still want to see the Ken/Kimbo fight.

Sounds like a bunch of excuses for Kimbo's lack of skill. They fed him easy wins and this one was supposed to be the same. He's not as good as they hype him to be, and by Seth beating him, it only proves it.

This is the best thing that could have happened to elite xc maybe now they'll start promoting there legit fighters. i mean they had a former ufc champ fighting the current ifl champ that is a lot more marketable than street fighter vs former legend. maybe now they will wise up

It just shows what a lot of MMA fans know that the average Joe did not. Kimbo Sucks and is overrated!!! Im hapy about his loss because it shows what he was A circus act or an actor in a movie....

In the end Kimbo will have to step up his game. He will have to fight better fighters to prove he's no phony fighter. He will not be able to beat the better fighters either.

Kimbo will be bakc and he might fight some more cans, but his hype of him ebing the badest man on the planet is over.

Kimbo Losing = Awsome night of laughing

I agree with Spoken.. the way most of the people on the board act toward Kimbo shows that MMA has a lot of angry teenage fans, or adults who never grew the **** up. Seriously, the man trains hard, the man fights hard, he got caught in a fight which got stopped early. Tough break for him but it happens. HE, the fighter, has nothing to do with EXC's rediculous marketing campaign. So trash EXC if you want to for ass-backwards marketing but to trash Kimbo constantly for no reason other than he's a street fighter, it shows your character. There is no other fighter in MMA who catches as much flack as this guy for doing nothing wrong, and I'm only saying this cuz no one else really does. This elitist mentality a lot of people show is bad for the sport. Grow up.. peace

Stoped early? you must have blinked. Watch the fight agian kimbo ate 3 stright punches to the face when he was on his bakc and then the ref jumped in...he wasnt covering up his hand were away fom his face.
