    looks like shamrocks too hurt to continue.. before the fight even starts!
    now they bring in a noname undercard fighter on 5 hours notice, which believe it or not will have a better chance of lasting a round than ken did

    i must say though that this might be carma. i hate when people say that as its always a "i told ya so!" to the person, but you look at all the talent he had years ago, but how he never released submissions on time to injure on purpose. now he doesnt even fight to win he fights for publicity... and he cant even get in the ring to get that. all the leg submissions he used to do are still there, but he gameplans like and idiot. he really mustve thought he reinvented himself.

    anyway, moreover a waste of kimbos time, now people will say hes beating another chump

    Kimbo lost in the first few seconds of the fight. Kimbo's too old to be doing this kind of stuff.

    ha! he lost to a "karate kid" who weighed in at light heavyweight, giving kimbo about 30 pounds. and kimbos supposed to be the "anytime, anywhere" fighter... this does not look good for him, knowing his first win came to someone who wussed out, second came to someone who had nothing at all (tank) and 3rd he got worked hard until he hit an ear

    I'm watching this now. They promised Kimbo that he'd fight Shamrock and then gave him this guy at the last second. Pre-fight research is important in a fight like this. It was kind of a dirty trick.

    Here's the fight coming up...

    OK, now there's enough fight loaded that the pauses just let me go back for a second look.

    The actual fight starts at 7:20. How did Slice go down at 7:29? I see possibly two front kicks from the new guy, then an exchange of punches and Slice goes down. Did Petrozelli knock him down with that punch?

    Petrozelli led with a left leg forward stance. As Slice rushed in on him he shuffled back a half step and gave a light front kick to Slice's ribs as Kimbo reached and leaned forward to grab or punch. Petrozelli extended his arms with elbows only slightly bent to catch Kinbo's arms, sort of a two arms equals one leg in distance thing - neat trick.

    He pushed Kimbo's outstretched arms down and then lifted his right arm and popped Kimbo with a quick right hook to the face followed by a fast skip step backwards to gain space. He keeps skipping back until he's on the ropes, rope-a-dope style. As he hits the ropes he lifts that right leg again but lowers it as Kimbo throws a heavy right. Petrozelli pushes the right arm down like he did before, lowering his leg as he does so, but since Kimbo's left arm isn't up this time, that snappy little right hook (or is it a traditional corkscrew punch? It didn't come from the hip chamber) comes out much faster, popping Kimbo in the face again with an audible, artificial sounding smack.

    Kimbo goes down and Petrozelli begins to pound him in the head from behind with his fists until Kimbo submits. That first hammerfist to the base of the skull was brutal!

    Is that right?

    Kimbo should have grabbed the leg I think. I know from my Tae Kwon Do training how vulnerable a kicker is with his leg up like that. They just...prohibit people from doing realistic stuff in Tae Kwon Do so they can have fun with the fancy kicks.

    Secret is to pause it until it is pretty much loaded, then start it playing.

    Disappointing fight. Can't say I've seen an MMA fighter get knocked out from a jab before.
