I have been informed by Sean Sherk that his fight in Hawaii was a disaster!
Sean fought Kalaeo Padilla last night in a event in Kona.

Sean dominated the fight, but it was obvious that the fix was in. From the promoter to the ref to the time keeper. Sean was threatened by fans. A fan tried to throw a bottle at him during the fight and he was just plain SET UP!!!

Padilla fled the ring 3times, grabbed the ropes and was given mercy by the time keeper! The REF did nothing.

It was scheduled for 5minute rounds. At "about" 3minutes in the first with Sean holding side control, throwing bombs and Padilla's arms secure, the bell sounded. WHY????

There was over a 3minute break between rounds for Padilla to gain his breath.

Sean immediately got the takedown at the start of the second, took mount and started bombing again. Padilla rolled, Sean sunk the choke and Padilla tapped.

Then a RIOT broke loose. Padilla was fixed to win. The fans were mad. Sean was jumped in the ring and sucker punched in the back of the head.

If not for BJ Penn and his team Sean would have been in a world of hurt.

This was a B.S. event and one of the top 3 170lb fighters in the world was treated like crap.

Sean was escorted from the arena, rushed to a waiting car and taken straight to the hotel.

BJ's team came to the rescue!

On behalf of Sean and Minnesota Martial Arts Academy we would like to thank BJ and his Team.

To the rest of the fans, the promoter and those involved in this event you are luck you are on an island far, far away from team MMAA!!!

Many years ago, a riot broke out because the favored fighter got koed and his guys were throwing chairs in the ring and wanting to fight everyone. It was in Kona and I believe the same promoters(Westbrook?).

If that was the case, then these promoters shouldn't be allowed to stage another MMA event. Those guys are just making this sport lose its credibility.

Props to BJ and Co in my book for helping out.

I would expect to hear this if it had taken place overseas but not in the states (and yes I know Hawaii is over the sea from the continental states)
