Seth Petruzelli says his UFC losses were mental

Seth Petruzelli has not lost a fight outside the UFC since 2001, yet he is 0-4 inside the Octagon. Petruzelli says his losses in the UFC are not because of a higher level of competition, but it is mental:

Pro MMA Now: Only one of your 12 victories have come by decision. You knocked out 10 of the 12 and submitted the other one. You definitely have an exciting style. You have great striking. And you have won almost all your fights outside the UFC. What do you think it is about fighting in the UFC that has been the biggest challenge for you; Is it just the level of competition or is there more to it?

Seth Petruzelli: No, it's mental, it always has been mental. I do fine in the training room with top level guys. I guess I'm a mental midget with the UFC and the pressure it puts on me. Either that or I'm cursed... and I don't believe in curses.

Petruzelli cornfirms his UFC release, talks about his recent loss to Karlos Vemola, how long and if he wants to continue fighting, and much more..
