I think everyone else said it for me.

Kimbo got knocked down and then hit in the back of the head a TON when he was trying to stand up.

What is it that is going to be on your mind when you're on your death bed? Will it be the tedious years of 9 to 5, or the memory of some great acheivement. Maybe a moment you stood in glory to the applause of millions.

Kimbo was so out of it he tried to shoot on the ref and take him down, thinking he was still in the fight. He was completly done.

I agree. This is the worst case scenario for EliteXC.

Losing to ken wouldn't have been too bad for them. Losing to Seth f'in petruzelli is bad.

Haha I was wondering what the Kimbo nuthuggers would start claiming. For everyone else I leave you with the words of Cardinals Coach Dennis Green "He was who we thought he was!".

Here's Jared Shaw's reaction:


(Notice he's yelling "The back of the head!")

I did see the shot to the back of the head, but to stop the fight for an illegal shot like that, would've been very similar to the poor call Steve Mazagatti made during the Frank Mir / Brock Lesnar fight. It should've just played out like it did last night. Kimbo was in trouble, Seth, while not very gracefully, was able to keep up the pressure and connect about once or twice through that sloppy barrage and finish it.

well i think you said it about the sloppy barrage.

im no mma super fan, but from what i saw it played out very oddly...

as far as solid shots that i saw: kimbo got hit on the chin and went over forward, then got hit on the back of the head and went over and then, yes obviously in trouble, didnt seem to get hit by anything except punches to the shoulder.

coupled with how the annoucers reacted, absolutely calling what happened wrong in the multiple replays, making such big shit of what went down, network tv, saturday night, trying to make a splash... just seems like a stunt.

skip to 4:15 and just take another look at the punches and listen to the announcers get everything wrong and how they much such a big deal of it.

ok, let me be clear on why i voted "yes". I think the Ken pulling out part was suspicious. i think they gave seth as an offering because they thought he would lose to ken, and it backfired on them. i think its freakin hilarious.

WAR Seth!!

Not at all suspicious. Fighters get injured before fights, it happens. Big dudes get dropped by short right jabs, it happens. end of story.

Also not suspicious. I mean, now the announcers are in on it too? Announcers get shit wrong ALL the time. FWIW the people I was watching teh fight with got it wrong at first too. We had to rewatch it a bunch of times to figure out exactly what went down.

Everybody good, plenty of slaves for my robot colony?

I think you are saying they are trying to make Seth, a guy they had originally on an undercard fight not to be broadcasted on television, a star. Am I right?
