    Sounds like a good show. Im a huge Roy Jones fan. So combine that with the great sport of MMA and im happy.

    It will be cool to see if Seth Petruzelli comes out thinking he is some kind of elite fighter after knocking out that rookie with the beard (whats his name again?).

    the show looks pretty good, i don't know if i would pay for it though, maybe with a few more solid fights on it.

    Sheika is a decent boxer has fought for a few titles but came up short. He did beat Glen Johnson who has a KO victory over Roy Jones, he also fought Joe Calzaghe for the WBO Super Middleweight title but lost by round 5 TKO, no shame in that.

    I think the snowman is going to take it. He's probably got a lot of steam to let loose after being arrested for a photo shoot.

    They should have had Seth fight Kimbo again. Its plenty of time for Kimbo to request the night off from McDonalds.

    I think the Seth and Kimbo fight would pretty much go the same way, only it would last a little longer. I'm not gonna lie. I like Seth. I think he has unique standup.
