Sad Knockout of the Day: Gabe Ruediger Destroyed by Jason Ellis in Celebrity Boxing Match

(Props: 69hailey via CP reader Aaron B.)

When a delusional wannabe-fighter like Jose Canseco gets wrecked in a celebrity boxing match, it comes as no surprise to anybody. But when it happens to an actual former UFC fighter like Gabe Ruediger? I mean, how do you explain that? Sure, Gabe wasn’t exactly a successful UFC fighter — and radio host/author/adventurer Jason Ellis is a tough S.O.B. who knows how to throw them hands — but when the two met in a boxing exhibition at Ellismania 8 in Las Vegas last month, you’d assume that Ruediger would be the favorite. Instead, he got knocked out cold at the end of the round two. The fact that Gabe wore a t-shirt into the ring suggests that he might not have taken his training camp as seriously as he should have.

And yes, that’s Jason “Mayhem” Miller shouting on the mic; a few weeks later, he would be begging Dana White to kill himself. If only we could have held onto that moment, when Miller was in high spirits, a packed arena was cheering Gabe Ruediger’s latest sad defeat, and everything seemed right with the world.

@12oz That gorilla was none other than Forrest Griffin aka Drunk Sasquatch, and he wasn't in his corner, he was dry-humping a dazed Gabe

Does anyone else notice the Pokemon sitting in the front row?? Or am I tripping?

If Gabe is having trouble giving a shit maybe he should get some more enemas.

I'm actually a huge Ellis fan, listen everyday, and they were reading what Gabe had been writing on his blog. Gabe essentially thinks the fight was called early because it was Jason's event. Jason had won the first 2 rounds and the only way Tshirtzilla would have won was with a KO in the 3rd. What people don't know about Ellis is he trains Muay Thai with Kit Cope, boxes with Justin Fortune, and used to train at Team Quest. (Side note: if you don't have SiriusXM I would say get it strictly to listen to Ellis, his show is the wheelhouse for the degenerates who visit this site.)

Looks like he was training with Tim Sylvia for that fight....and by training I mean eating Ho Hos and drinking malt liquor

@12oz: Yes, it's the T-shirt that really gives it away... wait... WHAT?

Seriously - look who the first person to help Ruediger after the KO - it's a dude in a gorilla suit. Very professional indeed. Regardless - War Jason Ellis!

@12Oz, Did Gabe give a shit to begin with? I must have missed that.
The12ozCurls- August 13, 2012 at 10:31 am
At one point I think he kind of gave a shit . . . . on second thought, maybe not.

Why is this sad? Gabe was never at the top, seeing Gabe down is what we are used to, not sad.

When your corner-man is wearing a monkey suit and you are wearing a t-shirt like the fat kid at the public pool, I assume Gabe just doesn't give a shit anymore.
