Seth Petruzelli: 'Kimbo Slice Was Scared, Won't Want a Rematch, I Want Tito Ortiz Next'

Still appearing surprised by his newfound stardom, Seth Petruzelli reflected in this interview on his win over Kimbo Slice.

I think the biggest fight EliteXC could promote for its next CBS show is a Petruzelli-Kimbo rematch, but Petruzelli suggested that he doesn't think Kimbo wants that fight.

"If he wants a rematch, I'll give it to him 100 percent," Petruzelli said. "I don't think he'll take it. ... I saw his eyes, I knew that he was scared, I knew that I had him beat mentally."

Petruzelli also said, "I'd like a tougher opponent," and he named Tito Ortiz. Unfortunately for Petruzelli, Ortiz won't be fighting any time soon. I think the chances are pretty good that Petruzelli-Kimbo II will happen some time next year.

After the jump, another Petruzelli interview.
This interview comes from MMARated.com:

"Whoever they want me to fight, I'll fight," Petruzelli said. "I'll fight anybody any time."
