Mention the greatest night of his professional life, and Seth Petruzelli won't give you that here-we-go-again stare, even though he's heard it all before, at least 1,001 times.

As you know – and he knows well – Petruzelli was a UFC failure 10 months ago, buried on the preliminary card of "EliteXC: Heat" and set to face Aaron Rosa before Ken Shamrock suffered a cut over his eye and was forced to back out of the main event against Kevin "Kimbo Slice" Ferguson.

I think he should stick to the grappling and the HW div, SF will even most likely be to high a level for him, but who knows!?

Unless Kimbo gets KO'ed a bunch more times, then he wont be remembered so well

Unless Seth does something big with his career, the Kimbo thing will eventually be forgotten


If Kimbo gets beat into retirement, he will be forgotten and the Seth connection will follow. I remember when the Shamrock KO of Kimo was a big deal, but nobody cares now.


If Kimbo becomes the next big thing, people will remember Seth for a bit, but like Ryo Chonan vs. Anderson Silva, he will eventually be forgotten.

In other words, bad fighters are forgettable and great fightes are only remembered for their greatness, not their shortcomings.
