MMA Quick Quote: Elite XCs Seth Petruzelli open to Kimbo Slice rematch

"If he ever wanted a rematch, I would 100 percent give it to him."

-- Elite XC's "Rocky Balboa" Seth Petruzelli mentioned at the Elite XC post-fight press conference that he would gladly grant Kimbo Slice a rematch if that's what he and the organization wanted. "The Silverback" stepped up on literally hours notice to fight Slice in the main event at Elite XC: "Heat" over the weekend when Ken Shamrock pulled out because of a cut just before showtime. At this point the long anticipated match between Slice and undefeated Team Bison member Brett "The Grim" Rogers is probably out of the question ... at least for the time being. Therefore, a rematch with Petruzelli could be the most logical next step in the Kimbo Slice MMA experiment. Petruzelli added that he would definitely come into a rematch at least 20 pounds heavier than the 205.5 pounds he weighed in at for last night's bout. Who would have thought we'd ever see Kimbo vs. Seth Petruzelli I, let alone part II?
