I believe if ref didn't stop the fight, kimbo will had the worst beating of his life and If ref stop the fight for a illegal hit warning that maybe will be a different story and i mean MAYBE.The only thing seemed suspicious or strange to me was Buss Rutten? (kimbo's trainer)
that's the only thing that makes me think that something up and i wanna know why?
That "Relatively unknown" had a lot more experience than Kimbo. Being well known does not make you a good fighter. I had seen Seth fight on TUF, in the UFC, and against Dan Severn (in KOTC I believe) and I (as well as many other knowledgeable folks) knew that Petruzelli had the tools to expose Kimbo. I called the fight for Petruzelli over an hour before the fight went down in the Kimbo vs Petruzelli thread.

And that one illegal strike doesn't warrant a stop or restart for a warning. Warnings for single accidental illegal blows are usually just shouted at the fighters by the ref with no actual interference unless further illegal strikes occur.

SiCKiD has a little shameless behaviour in the past
For me calling Seth Petrezelli a relative unknown it's bcuz i think he only had 4 fight's in ufc (2W-2L) with some fight's in TUF and he was out of the ring's for 1year,not a main event fighter yet, a few mma fan's knew who seth was. I like seth and to be honest i didn't think he had a chance with kimbo but he prove me wrong and now i like him event better.Even Frank said he would like 2step in but elitexc said no and they got seth insted.
Re rockybalboa25 who you calling nube? what nube meen's? it's the same thing like noob?
Anyway all i said it's i haven't seen Bass Rutten in the ring with kimbo and that's strange for me cuz he's allways in the ring with his fighters.

Kimbo isn't a main event fighter. He's a circus fighter.

Seth had more than four times the experience Kimbo had, 7 of his 10 wins by KO/TKO, never been finished with strikes before, and has some formidable kickboxing credentials. They had to believe that, on paper, Seth was more than just an unknown quantity. Albeit an average HW, he provided far more of a challenge than a handicapped Ken Shamrock would any day of the week.

If anything was suspicious, it would be the sturdiness of Kimbo's jaw...

After i seen who kimbo was fighting i checked a site for the odds on the fight ( dont want to disclose sites name but its has dog in it ;p) and Seth was 1500-1 odds man. i have NEVER seen odds that bad before on ANYTHING let alone a MMA fight man. I honestly think kimbo put 10k on himself and took a knee man.
Can anyone confirm if sports books were taking action on the Kimbo/Seth fight? I'd like to know if any crazy money was placed on Seth at the last minute.
