Following his loss to Ricardo Romero at this past weekend's UFC 116 event, Seth Petruzelli (12-5 MMA, 0-3 UFC) has received hundreds of social-media messages that raved about his performance.

But he spoke to MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) while sitting in a soon-to-depart plane because he read that UFC president Dana White handed out extra bonus checks after the event.

He wanted to know if he was on the list.

"It would really help out," said Petruzelli, who is unsure if he'll get another UFC fight.

"I guess I just punched myself out," Petruzelli said.

Petruzelli knocked Romero down in the second frame and scored a cut, but he didn't have the gas to engage in a grappling war and got caught in an armbar midway through the round.

The colorfully maned fighter doesn't want to make any excuses for the fight and said he should have been in better shape.

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

I think he deserves another shot. He came out guns blazing, clearly trying to impress. (Which he did, despite losing IMO)

RedCoat - He deserves it, he looked phenomenal up to the point that he gassed out everything.

Both him and Shane both lost fights due to terrible cardio.

Cardio is KING in MMA. It's hard as shit to get your cardio where it needs to be but damn it makes all the difference. Shane Carwin would be Heavyweight Champ of the World with better cardio.

 Seth was looking great but the adrenalin dump and  trying too hard to make an impression got the best of him.  I think they will give him another shot.  Exciting fighter and very entertaining.

Romero and Brock both have amazing thresholds for punishment. They literally wore out their opponents with the beatings they took.

how in the world could someone even hope for a bonus when they didn't even have the cardio to finish their fight?

WOW

- petruzelli pushed the pace
- connected with many, MANY solid shots (that i thought could/should have finished him)
- romero has a chin... and a half
- with more cardio work, i think he still has a lot of offer the UFC
