Video: Kimbo Slice Knocked Out by Seth Petruzelli in 14 Seconds, Total Fraud

When Kimbo Slice busted onto the scene, I was skeptical about his success; I said immediately, despite my limited MMA knowledge, that he was being set up against easy opponents to rack up an impressive record. Looks like I was right, because Kimbo didn’t even last 15 seconds with Seth Petruzelli in their fight on Saturday night. Check out the video of the fight (if you can even call it that):

Here’s just the knockout (with a great call by Gus Johnson he’s hilarious!):

Here’s the fight including the entire buildup and ring entrances:

That’s been one of my complaints about MMA that seems to ring true more than boxing — the fights can end so quickly. I guess the positive side is that there are enough fights on the card for it not to matter. How crazy is that? Slice wasn’t even scheduled to fight Petruzelli — he was supposed to fight Ken Shamrock but Shamroc sustained a cut earlier in the day and had to back out. Can you imagine going from virtual unknown to superhero in one day? Crazy twist of fate.

    Kimbo has always reminded me of a pro wrestler more than a fighter. I’m not surprised that a guy with pink hair could play a little defense, catch him off balance and beat his ass.

    Oh yea, this whole scenario reminds me of a movie you should see. 1956’s The Harder They Fall starring Humphrey Bogart, Rod Steiger, Max Baer, Jersey Joe Walcott, Carlos Montalbon, etc. It’s about this naive boxer who is nothing more than a gimmick and set up in a bunch of fixed fights in order to make him a phenom. It was Bogart’s last film before his death.

    If I see it coming up on a tv schedule I’ll shoot you an email.

    SO ends the dubious career of Kimbo Slice, the internet “phenom.”

    In other news, Gina Carano is ridiculously sexy and not at all masculine.
