    At the end Petruzelli did say that the way he got punched before versus the way he punched him does make a difference. I read the article and though hinted, it doesn't seem like it was really "rigged". Then again I'm neither of their fans so, let the controversy continue. haha

    i listen to the monsters and it didnt seem out of line to ask a well rounded wrestler to try and stand up with a brawler. i dont think thats rigged

    its just the company trying to make their cash cow look as best they can

    "this guy has no ground game, we'd appreciate it if you slug it out with him instead of going to the ground"

    i wouldnt call it "rigged"... but i also wouldnt call it completely "legit"
    one more loss like this and you wont see kimbo anywhere but youtube

    Yup exactly, Elite XC is trying to build it self into a UFC type franchise and this really hurts its credibility. I do not plan on watching Elite or Kimbo again, because now there is that seed of doubt.

    Well no doubt about that haha. But compared to a legit MMA fighter he just does not add up it seems. Even to an "amateur" fighter.
