Kimbo Slice-Seth Petruzelli Rematch Coming? EliteXC's Jared Shaw Talks It Up

When I was examining what might be next for Kimbo Slice, I thought maybe he ought to try boxing or pro wrestling because I didn't know what EliteXC could do with him after his 14-second knockout loss to Seth Petruzelli.

But apparently EliteXC thinks it can do something with Kimbo: Put him back into the cage for a rematch with Petruzelli.

In an interview with MMA Rated, EliteXC promoter Jared Shaw said, "I'm sure everybody wants to see a rematch with six weeks built up and see, hey, what was going on with Kimbo? I don't even know."

I'm not prepared to say that "everybody wants to see a rematch," but I will say that Kimbo-Petruzelli II might be the single biggest fight EliteXC could put on CBS. Which is kind of sad.

After the jump, watch the MMA Rated interview with Shaw.
