Jared Shaw craps his pants (win a free DVD)

Watch the whole video but pay special attention to the time starting at 3:28 mark as Kimbo is getting beat notice who stands up at cage side screaming; it’s none other than everyone’s favorite vice president of EliteXC, Jared Shaw. I would give at least a hundred bucks to know what Shaw was screaming. If you can come up with the best slogan of what Shaw is saying you will win a quality MMA DVD. Post it in the comments.

The Kimbo bubble gets popped!

by:  Jack Bratcher

Well, it was bound to happen sooner or later and as odd as it has been, it seems only fitting that the Kimbo show would come to a close in the midst of strange circumstances.  The street fighter turned mixed martial artist suffered his first defeat tonight at the hands of Seth Petruzelli.  Petruzelli, although unknown to Slice is not unknown to high level MMA competition.  He has fought such notable names as Matt Hamill, Dan Severn, Gan McGee and a host of others.  As soon as word came in that Shamrock would not be fighting and when they announced who his replacement would be, many people realized the same thing Kimbo and his coaches must have also realized causing them not to formally accept the fight until late this afternoon:  Seth Petruzelli was no Ken Shamrock.

At 28 years old and owning a pair of very heavy hands with 8 knockouts in 10 fights to prove it, Petruzelli was poised in a prime position to shock the world.  Except really, why would a win by Petruzelli shock any true MMA fan unless you were one of the ones who got fooled into buying the hype.  What hype is that?  The hype that said Kimbo Slice was one of the top heavyweight Mixed Martial Artists in the world..let me throw up a bit for even putting those words in a sentence.

Elite XC’s CBS Saturday Night Fights results & play-by-play

by:  Jack Bratcher

The action for Elite XC: Heat – CBS Saturday Night Fights starts the live broadcast at 8pm CST. PRO MMA will be providing round by round results and a summary of tonight’s event.

In a devastating turn of events Ken Shamrock will not be fighting tonight after receiving a cut over his eye this afternoon that needed six stitches.  Although Shamrock definitely wanted to fight and was visibly upset, the doctors would not allow him.

Even though it is a disappointing turn of events, MMA fans can take comfort in the fact that finally Kimbo will get to face a legitimate opponent as Seth Petruzelli steps in the ring to take the place of the injured Shamrock.
