What injury often happens to Seth Seth Petruzelli? Video example
I have seen Seth in action several times, only to be forced to quit due to the same problem. Does anyone know much about this condition, causes, ways to avoid it, etc? It is a real shame, because he looks well on his way to winning fights, only to be stricken with this. I have seen this happen the same way in a later UFC fight he was winning handily as well.
RJ: Can you tell us what happened in the Bob Sapp fight?
Seth Petruzelli: Well first of all, I got the call on a week and a half notice. Of course I will step up to any fight. Especially a fight like that where itís an opportunity of a lifetime. So yeah why not? Iíll fight in Japan on a week and a halfísnotice. I got out there and I thought I was winning the fight. With my karate style, I kind of back up a bit to throw my first punch and Bob Sapp was so much taller than me that I would have to teep like I did with Kimbo. I backed up and then he came in with his chin up. I just hurt him in the sweet spot of his chin and knocked him out. If it was MMA, that knock out would have been over for sure but it was a K-1 fight so they gave him a standing 8 count which was more like a standing 10-12 count for him. Then the very next exchange, I threw a couple of legs. He threw a left over my right and as I turned my head to get away from the punch, I got a spinner. I thought I tore my bicep because I threw it so hard and missed. Literally, I couldnít feel my arm from the shoulder down. 10-15 seconds later, the feeling came back and I was fine to go but the ref said no, no, no, itís over. I kind of felt pissed off about it and I was screaming. I was like ďIím fine.Ē ďLetís do this.Ē I definitely think they were saving Bob Sappbecause I knocked him down in like 30 seconds of the fight. They were just trying to save his ass. I talked to Bob Sapp a couple of months ago and he still said that he would give me a rematch. Weíll see what happens. Iíll fight him just for my own personal vendetta.
