'Jersey' Knockout Victim:

I Got Sucker Punched

1/20/2010 8:17 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

The guy who Ronnie knocked out cold in last week's episode of "Jersey Shore" claims he got sucker punched in the back of the head -- and now the guy says he wants a rematch with his new nemesis.

Stephen Izzo tells TMZ he was trying to fight MTV security after they broke up his group's expletive-filled tussle with the "Jersey" cast -- when Ronnie came out of nowhere and delivered a haymaker to the back of his head. Izzo says the cuts on his face were caused by his sudden headfirst fall into the unforgiving brick ground below.

Izzo now wants a rematch with Ronnie ... and this time he wants it to be a fair fight.

BTW: Ronnie was arrested after the knockout, and Izzo says he's gonna show up for Ronnie's court appearance in a couple of weeks.

Hey that guy is a complete douche bag!

First off in that episode you see that this clown and his friends are following the Jersey Shore group and that guy asked for exactly what he got. He should have been arrested as well for inciting violence and harassment but police never do that and they wonder why these types of things always happens. If there was a threat that the instigator could also go to jail I think there would be less incidents like these after bar hours.

If that guy was a real man he wouldn't go to court and he'd have the charges dropped but he's not a real man he's a douche.

Come on - these are grown men. You don't punch someone for mouthing off no matter how annoying they are. Just walk away. At some point you have be behave like an adult and punching someone to the ground for verbal abuse is juvenile.

That was better than UFC fighting. Ronnie just KO'd him! That guy claiming he was sucker punched though is total crap. Ronnie tried for a long while to keep out of it but then this guy sends his girlfriend over there to act like some sort of a shield! I am not an advocate of using violence to solve problems, but this fight was mutual. That guy had been making trouble all night and finally went to far. Look at the video again...this guy is taking cartoon-like swings towards Ronnie while hiding behind his girlfriend. No sucker punch there.

See, the problem is you guys are believing what you saw on tv. He did get sucker punched and anyone from the area knows that. MTV just edited it out to make their cast look better, like they do with all of their reality shows. If this wasn't the case, then why didn't they show the punch? They showed the punch on the boardwalk, but not this one? That alone should prove that there was some editing involved. MTV also didn't show these kids getting run out of F-cove with beer bottles being thrown at them and the amount of times they got beat up or needed their personal security to save their asses. I'm sorry, but watching the show on tv is not the same as being there and seeing what really happened all summer. Team IZZZZOOOOOO....

Someone should have broken that ugly hook nose of his too. I love this picture of him on the sidewalk after getting his a** beat down. The only sucker to get punched was him when that manly fist met up with his fugly jawlline. Too bad no one took the opportunity to kick him up the ass while he was kissing the sidewalk. What a loser!!!
