Kimbo Gets Sliced

Fourteen seconds into last night's heavyweight bout, the referee called the fight handing Kimbo Slice his first loss. It wasn't by Ken Shamrock as planned, but by stand-in Seth Petruzelli. After Shamrock was medically disqualified due to a cut over his eye, Petruzelli bravely stepped in and took care of business. Continue after the jump for video of the improbable victory. A short right to the eye by Petruzelli was enough to momentarily stun Slice causing him to slip and hit the mat face first. The pink haired wonder, realizing he had an opportunity, went into a full ground and pound (my favorite!). Slice, not able to recover and protect his face, was suffering sever blows when the fight was called.

Admittedly Slice has been working on his form and looks to be in much better shape, but he has a long way to go before he can be considered a top heavyweight. Gina Carano extended her undefeated streak to 6-0 (and kept her clothes on), by defeating Kelly Kobold in a unanimous decision. Despite a wrestling strategy by Kobold, Carano dominated with her fists and cage control. There has never been a female Elite XC champion, but I think it's about time. The rumors of a match-up between Carano and the dynamic Cris Cyborg would make for a great fight. Fat heavyweight Roy "Big Country" Nelson was defeated by a flury of punches in the second round by former UFC heavyweight Champion Andrei Arlovski. Jake Shields successfully defended his title against Cage Rage welterweight champion Paul "Semtex" Daley. Video via Bloody Elbow Image via FanHouse
