T. Jay Thompson: Seth Petruzelli Was Paid To Stand Up

Consultant for EliteXC and Superbrawl/ICON Sport founder T. Jay Thompson tells MMAweekly.com that from what he knows, Seth Petruzelli was paid to stand up and trade with Kimbo Slice:

“I was there cageside and watched the whole thing happen,” Thompson told MMAWeekly.com. “Watching Jared Shaw jumping up and down and screaming as a representative of the company, I think was disgusting and embarrassing.” He continued, “I dont have a smoking gun, (but) I've been around long enough; I've talked to enough people that were there, I won't name names of executives in the company that I know. Seth was paid to stand up. I'm confident of that. If the commission wants to talk to me, I'll tell them what I know.”

But the funniest thing about all of this “stand-gate” issue is that it didn't even pay off. EliteXC is now bankrupt and out of buisness and look like idiots in the process for paying Seth Petruzelli to stand and be a punching bag for Kimbo Slice only to have Petruzelli KO Slice in 14 seconds.
