Default Jose Canseco KOed in 77 seconds in MMA debut

http://sports.espn.go.com/extra/mma/...ory?id=4205900

Quote:
YOKOHAMA, Japan -- Jose Canseco came out swinging but didn't last long in his debut in mixed martial arts.

The former Oakland Athletics slugger was defeated by South Korean super heavyweight Hong Man Choi by a knockout just 1 minute, 17 seconds into the first round at Yokohama Arena.

The referee stopped the fight when the 7-foot-2, 330-pound Choi knocked Canseco to the mat and started punching his head.

"That's a big man," Canseco said after the fight. "I ran into one of his left jabs and that almost knocked me out. You have no idea how scary it was facing a man that big."

"I have no idea if I'll do this again," Canseco said. "I've gotta get my knee better before I commit to anything like this."

Charlie Z would have knocked him out in under 60 seconds.








And the boxing bag Charlie trains with that almost once took out Charlie himself, would have dropped this guy in under 30 seconds.

Zelenoff has his own Wiki page. I couldn't help but crack up at this:

Quote:
Zelenoff turned professional in May 2008 at the Paris Middle School, Paris, Arkansas, United States. In his debut Zelenoff faced Arkansas based "tomato can" Andrew "Kid Thunder" Hartley who had a 1-13 record at the time.

Something about turning pro at a middle school in a town of 3,500 just gets me every time.

He wasn't defending himself, and gave the tapping motion...

i know, i'm not arguing the stoppage.. but what i'm saying is, the big guy didn't even land a single punch on him when he was on the ground.. canseco had no reason to call it quits unless he was scared..

Canseco tapped because he had a well trained 7'2 330 pound K-1 fighter on top of him raining down punches, and as you can see, Canseco was even more lost on the ground than he was on his feet. Canseco, himself, said that he was scared before he even stepped into the ring. He tapped because he didn't went to get smashed into unconsciousness. Yes, they could have given him a much easier opponent, but the Japanese love those freakshow type fights and Canseco was probably well paid to step into a fight where everything pointed to him losing quickly.

I don't know, his press conference the other day to talk about his second book and the Manny Ramirez situation only netted one reporter.
