But it sort of, was the back of the head. I'm not saying the damage hadn't been done and full credit to Seth, but from what I saw, Kimbo did take a shot or two to the back of the head.

He definitely landed a hard shot to the back of the head, but then again, where else can you punch a guy who is falling down face first...he was just trying to follow up his lazy jab.

I think this whole thing is pretty much garbage. I posted in a similiar thread, and here's my thoughts on it. There are way more people losing on this deal than winning. The only two I think have gained anything from all of this is Seth Petruzelli and Kimbo. Seth because he's an overnight star for beating someone that casual MMA fans might have thought was really tough, on national television none the less. Kimbo because he got paid a huge sum of money to train and pretend to be a legitimate MMA fighter. People that have lost? First of all, EliteXC. They have been in serious trouble as it is, and their poster boy getting tooled in 14 seconds won't help any. Then I'd say CBS. Because they put EliteXc on their network, and the talent level is not the best, fewer people will care to tune in next time. Also, with the rumor of the fix, any sports that CBS trys to put on after this, other than the big 3 (NFL,NBA,MLB) will always be considered suspect. Lastly, I think that MMA as a whole will suffer a little from this. How many millions of people watched this sad excuse for MMA because it was on free TV and internet star Kimbo Slice was headling? Now, out of those millions, how many do you think were casual fans, or for that matter, first time viewers, and will likely not ever buy a good PPV card after the garbage Main Event and then talk of a fixed fight? I'm not saying that this is by any means going to be devastating to MMA, but it is definately not helping the advancement of the sport. Gary Shaw is the grinch that is trying steal MMA's credibility to make a fast buck, and Kimbo will hopefully return to his rightful title of "The Toughest Guy Outside Your Local Liquor Store."

I just dont get why people even say Kimbo was a great "Street Fighter"... I have never once seen this guy in a street fight, all the fights he had on youtube were all bare knuckle boxing. There were no takedowns allowed, when a guy went down he had to allow him to get up...

I dont know about any of you, but in the few street fights I have been in, there were no rules, and if you knocked a guy down, you jumped on him, if he punched better than you, you take him down!

Kimbo is NOT a good FIGHTER at all... He just has good punching power!

Basically you can take a dog sh!t, paint it yellow, sprinkle it with glitter and market it as gold. But deep down you know youre selling sh!t.

This is exactly what EliteXC have done with Kimbo
