Seth Petruzelli Destroys Kimbo Slice; EliteXC Star Is the Ultimate Fraud

The street fighter turned professional mixed martial arts fighter Kimbo Slice showed that he's the ultimate fraud, getting destroyed by Seth Petruzelli tonight with a first-round knockout that took just 14 seconds.

Kimbo was scheduled to fight Ken Shamrock, but Shamrock pulled out with an injury. Petruzelli, who had been scheduled to fight Aaron Rosa on the undercard, was a last-minute replacement for Shamrock in the main event.

Kimbo had a significant size advantage: Petruzelli's fight with Rosa was scheduled to be a light heavyweight fight, so he weighed in at 205.5 pounds. Kimbo, a heavyweight, weighed in at 234.5 pounds. But it didn't matter. Petruzelli simply overwhelmed Kimbo at the opening bell. Kimbo had no business being in the cage against anyone with even a minimal level of MMA skill.

Petruzelli improved his record to 10-4. Kimbo falls to 3-1 and is now revealed as the ultimate fraud.

UPDATE: Watch the video of Petruzelli knocking Kimbo out.
