I watched it just a few minutes ago and Kimbo clearly had no idea where he was as he was trying to take the ref down after the stoppage. You got to give the credit to Seth for taking the fight and for getting the TKO. As Seth was doing his post fight interview Kimbo is in the background saying something along the lines of I got no problem with you.

So yeah anti-climatic is the wrong word.

That fight was horrible.....with that being said I would NOT fight Kimbo, EVER.

I heard on Jim Rome that Petruzelli was approached by the Elite XC brass and offered an incentive to keep the fight standing.

So much for that Kimbo as Elite's poster boy.

I thought it was funny seeing Frank rip into Ken in the intro about taking that head butt during his pre-fight warm-up. "What are you thinking?"

I saw Mikey's fight today on DVD. He dominated. First round he went hard with the jab and worked some kicks and knees. He took him down twice also. Second round same deal but the guy came at him and Mikey just threw two huge knees and drove the guy into the cage then dropped for the double. Once he had him on the ground he just punished the guy up until the guy tried to push through and he took an easy armbar.

Turns out the guy he fought was 36 and 4 as a professional Muay Thai fighter. Mikey looked real sharp even standing.
