If you haven’t seen this video – what is wrong with you? People suffering from addictions often become viral legends and this clip of a man who appears to be on meth fighting a plastic chair is a prime example. He goes for several submissions after some crisp stand-up before some brutal ground and pound is unleashed. It looks to be over when he finally locks in some kind of move that causes the seat to tap out. It’s a fight that resembles Khabib Nurmagomedov’s mauling of Conor McGregor in the main event of UFC 229. Check it out and as always enjoy!

In the years to come one may possibly look back on the MMA career of Seth Petruzelli and define it pre- and post-Kimbo, depending on how things unfold over the next few weeks and months ahead.
PRO MMA had a talk with Seth prior to his appearance at the EliteXC event on Oct. 4 where he was scheduled to fight Aaron Rosa. None of us had any inclination whatsoever Seth would be fighting Kimbo Slice, least of all Seth himself. But destiny has a funny way of working itself out regardless of our plans or intentions.
As we spoke with Seth prior to the Oct. 4th event, he had this to say, “I know I still have a few fans out there but I’ve been out for a year so my name has kind of gotten lost in the mix so I’m definitely looking to come in and make a big splash in EliteXC.
Here are a few quotes taken from the hundreds and hundreds of friends and fans who have posted at evantanner.net. The world and the sport is a lesser place now that he is gone but is definitely a better place because he lived:
“Evan was his own man. He knew his path, and he walked it, as he will continue to walk in our hearts.”
“Those of us lucky enough to know our quiet thinking fighter will carry him in our hearts forever.”
“I will always be a fan of yours. You lived life to the fullest and I appreciate everything you did for the sport of MMA.”
“Believe in the power of One, right Evan? You are my hero. Thanks for everything you did to make me believe again.”
“You are an icon for the sport and will live in our hearts forever as a legend.”
“This is what Evan Tanner was – a warrior for the sake of being a warrior.”
“He was the frist fighter that I saw and he is the way I love MMA. My hubby Chris and I have a son who will be 4 years old on the 13 on this month and his name is Evan Tanner Appleby! You will be missed and loved!”
