A Deer Park man who pleaded guilty to punching a female reality show star in the face was himself knocked out in a cage-style fight, according to reports.

Bradley Ferro, 24, participated in a match called Clash in the Cage in January, and his opponent, Spencer Cook, knocked him out in less than 30 seconds, according to the New York Post. The celebrity Web site TMZ.com posted a video of the fight.

Ferro pleaded guilty last month to slugging Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi, a "Jersey Shore" cast member, when she confronted him about a beer he took after she placed it on a bar, police said.

MTV deleted that footage from its Dec. 17 episode of the show.

Ferro was arrested on Aug. 19 and charged with assault and disorderly conduct. He pleaded guilty Nov. 9 to assault and was sentenced to six months in jail. The sentence was suspended provided that he doesn't get arrested again. A judge also ordered Ferro to pay a $500 fine and take an anger management course.

Ferro reportedly works as a gym teacher in Queens.

"Jersey Shore," which has drawn ire from Italian-Americans who say the show features negative stereotypes of them, also stars Franklin Square resident Jenni Farley, known on the show as "J-Woww."
