Despite UFC 116 loss, Petruzelli will get another UFC fight

by Steven Marrocco | source:

Seth Petruzelli will get a chance to redeem himself.

"The Silverback" today told ( that he is not one-and-done with the UFC after a disappointing, yet electrifying, octagon return at UFC 116 earlier this month.

"[The UFC] was happy with (my) performance and asked when I'd like to fight again," Petruzelli wrote via text message.

"I guess I just punched myself out," Petruzelli said after the fight. "I just got lazy on the bottom for 10 seconds and got caught. I could have got out of that submission. I was just tired."

"Honestly, I don't think I belong in the UFC until I win a fight," Petruzelli told following the Romero loss. "Obviously, it was a good showing, but I feel I've let everyone down. I don't think I belong until I win a damn fight in the UFC.

"That's all I want to do is win a fight, and I think I should have won that. I know I can hang with anybody, man. I just need to go out there and do it one time."

I like Seth and I think he's cool, but he really lived up to the expression 'Snatching defeat from the jaws of victory'. He definitely should have won that fight against Romero.

Seth's fight set the tone for what turned out to be an awesome night of fights (it sucks that he lost). I'd like to see Seth vs Rich Franklin. Potential for fireworks there if Seth gets his cardio up.
