Art of Fighting 4: Seth Petruzelli scores first round win in return fight

The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 2 alum, Seth Petruzelli, finally returned to action last night after nearly a year-long layoff, picking up right where he left off.

Petruzelli scored a first round technical knockout over Chris Baten in the co-main event at Art of Fighting 4 from the University of South Florida’s Sun Dome in Tampa, Fla., according to The News-Press.

It was a stoppage with which Baten, and apparently the crowd, did not agree.

Here's a snip:

"It was definitely a clean knock down but not a knockout. It caught me on the cheekbone with enough power to put me on my butt. But I wasn’t seeing stars. I was in a scramble coming back up."

Regardless, the win stands -- his third straight and first since hitting the MMA lotto with a 14-second stoppage of the previously undefeated YouTube.com street fighting legend Kimbo Slice at Elite XC: "Heat" in Oct. 2008.
