SUNRISE, Fla. (AP) -- Late replacement Seth Petruzelli stopped hyped heavyweight Kimbo Slice in just 14 seconds Saturday night, handing the former street fighter his first mixed martial arts loss.

Petruzelli, 28, had been slated to fight on the undercard against Aaron Rosa at the BankAtlantic Center. But he was bumped up to the heavyweight main event of the EliteXC "CBS Saturday Night Fights" card when the athletic commission sidelined Ken Shamrock. The UFC Hall of Famer needed six stitches over his left eye after an old cut reopened when he was bumping heads warming up earlier in the day.

Petruzelli, a graduate of Season 2 of "The Ultimate Fighter" reality TV show, had been shaping to fight at light-heavyweight and weighed in 205.5 pounds, 29 lighter than Slice. He had also lost two of his last four fights before dispatching Slice.

Slice (3-1) declined to touch gloves in the cage before the fight and came forward at the bell, backing off Petruzelli (11-4). But as Slice looked to block a front kick, he was toppled with a right. Slice fell forward and Petruzelli kept punching. Slice turned on his back and had taken almost a dozen unanswered punches before referee Troy Waugh stepped in.

The fight card was the third of four under EliteXC's current deal with CBS and it was the second to feature Slice, a former street brawler who turned to MMA after becoming an Internet sensation.

The 34-year-old Miami native, whose real name is Kevin Ferguson, is a former bouncer and bodyguard.

At 44, Shamrock is a fighter with name recognition despite a recent history of losses. He has lost his last five fights -- all in the first round -- and eight of the last 10. Shamrock's best fighting days are long behind him, but he still knows how to hype a fight.

"This (cut) will heal up soon and I will hope they will put this together again because he deserves a beating and I'd like to give it to him," said Shamrock, who apologized to fans for having to drop out.

Apparently Shamrock was still smarting from the weigh-in when Slice turned his back on Shamrock. An irate Shamrock pushed Slice in the back, prompting onlookers to separate the two fighters.

Earlier, Jake Shields retained his EliteXC welterweight title by submitting England's Paul (Semtex) Daley at 3:47 of the second round.

Shields (22-4-1) can thank his jiu-jitsu prowess and Daley's lack of a ground defence as he ran his win streak to 11.

Shields took Daley (18-7-2) down midway through the first round and mounted him. Daley escaped an armbar, reversed position and landed some elbows from above as the round ended.

The champion ended up in mount again in the second, eventually finishing Daley off with an armbar.

Former UFC heavyweight champion Andrei (Pitbull) Arlovski knocked out former IFL title-holder Roy (Big Country) Nelson at 3:14 of the second round.

The muscular Arlovski, a native of Belarus who now calls Chicago home, tripped Nelson earlier on but ended underneath the big man and spent almost half of the first round on his back. The referee eventually stood them off and Nelson tried unsuccessfully for a takedown before eating some punches and kicks.

Arlovski (15-5) was wobbled with a punch to the head early in the second but recovered quickly and pinned a tired Nelson (13-3) on the fence. Arlovski hurt him with a pair of uppercuts then felled him with a right.

At 262 pounds, Nelson looks more like a pot-bellied couch potato than a fighter. Still he came into the bout with a five-fight win streak. But he could not stand up to the striking of Arlovski, who is contemplating a boxing career.

Former IFL fighter Benji (The Razor) Radach stopped former EliteXC middleweight champion Murilo (Ninja) Rua at 2: 31 of the second round.

Radach (19-4) wobbled Rua earlier but the Brazilian survived. At one point in the first round, both fighters went down hurt at the same time after a standup exchange.

In the second, Rua (16-9-1) had some success with knees and kicks. But he paid the price when he lost his balance attempting a knee. The Braz

It's about time this guy lost. He is a brawler and brawlers really have no place in mma. Too bad shamrock couldn't fight him because that would have been agood matchup for him.

Kimbo Slice was shown for what he was...a fraud! He probably would've beaten an over the hill, passed his prime, Ken Shamrock. All Kimbo was really was a guy who made his name mostly off of fights posted on youtube, over-hyped, and simply a younger version of Tank Abbott, another over-hyped guy who has no business in MMA.

BTW, it's rumored that Frank Shamrock was originally approached as a sub for Ken, but that CBS nixed that idea. Can you imagine, Frank would have seriously taught Kimbo a lesson about curerent MMA, litterally & figuratively.

All that said, it doesn't mean the end of Kimbo, he just needs to work on all aspects of his game, and with Bas Rutten training him, he's got a good chance of coming back strong.
