Steroids in MMA
Which MMA Fighter Will Test Positive For Steroids Next?

And Now He’s Fired: Seth Petruzelli

(You’ll still always be "The Kimbo Killer" to me, Seth.)

It looks like the post-UFC 122 cuts just keep coming. 

Five Ounces of Pain is reporting that Seth Petruzelli has been dropped by the UFC after being finished for the second time in as many fights in his most recent stint in the Octagon.

30-year-old Petruzelli (12-6 MMA, 0-4 UFC), who lost by TKO to Karlos Vemola at the event in Oberhausen, Germany 10 days ago and was also submitted  by Ricardo Romera at UFC 116 in July in his first fight back since being dropped by the promotion originally in 2007 joins fellow UFC 122 losers Peter Sobotta and Kimbo Slice, "The Silverback" will likely not be unemployed long.

As least he’ll have Tom Lawlor to console him.

Also, Seth should go by the moniker "Elite XC Killer" instead

The only way he could have set himself up for failure with an even higher percentage would have been to dye it green. There are only two victories by green-haired dudes in MMA I can think of, one by Pellegrino, and the other would be the battle of emo kids on TUF.

The characterization of Petruzelli having been "smoked" by two new guys is not quite correct. He came out like a house on fire against Romero, breaking his jaw if you'll recall, and that fight easily could have been stopped in the first round on a couple of different occasions. Unfortunately, it wasn't, and he was completely punched out going into the second. Seth reminds me of a LHW Lytle, a guy who can always be counted for a good scrap, so perhaps he'll get another shot.

He got smoked by two new guys. Not the best way to make it through your 90-day performance-related period of probationary employment. A cursory and non-biased examination of the immediately available data does show a correlation between instant and massive failure and a ridiculously contrived display of hair-styling prowess. He looks like he let one of his gay friends do his PhD thesis for hair college on his dome three days out from the fight.

On an interesting side note, on the most recent broadcast of MMA Connected I noticed Dan Hardy sporting a new and quite subdued Mohawk-less look. Now he looks like just another round-headed British chap.

Like a million elephants with silverback orangutans you can't stop a train.

Seth should take his gimmick over to WWE - at least he'll make some money.

Troy Waugh finishes off Kimbo with his patented "Spinal Crush Tea-bag"

He is going to do a lot of crying on Tom Lawlor's dick, I mean lap, shoulder!

Does anyone remember why they thought Kimbo would do well in MMA? I know some of you did.
