Widely known as the "Kimbo Killer," Seth Petruzelli has been credited by many as not only being the man to end the promotional myth that was Kimbo Slice, but also as the man who ended the promotional nightmare that was EliteXC.
Following his run on TUF 2, Petruzelli lost to Matt Hamill and Wilson Gouveia before being let go, with a win in the UWC promotion sandwiched in between.
A four-fight win streak ensued for Petruzelli, earning him a second shot with the UFC. His stay wouldn't last; he was finished by Ricardo Romero and Karlos Vemola, despite being in control of the Romero fight early.
Rebounding with a win over Dave Mewborn in the fast rising World Extreme Fighting promotion, Petruzelli was invited to Bellator Fighting Championships for a 230-pound catchweight fight with the UFC veteran. An impressive striking display from Petruzelli led to a devastating knockout in the second round, after which he announced his plans to enter the next Bellator 205-pound tournament.
Petruzelli is also known as having the youngest sponsor in mixed martial arts in the world to my knowledge, as the nine-year-old creator of the hit children's book The Big M (www.TheBigM.net), Kaleb Brown, is an avid fan and supporter of the Silverback.
