Chris Kyle's story is not adding up, and his motivations appear fishy at best.
1) The incident took place in 2006, but Chris Kyle is just now talking about it. Coincidentally Chris Kyle also has a book for sale, for which he is looking to garnish as much publicity and money as possible.
2) No one at the SEALs bar remembers the incident.This is very odd because the bar was packed that night with people (staff, graduating SEALs and their families, the family of the fallen SEAL, and many other patrons). Jesse was also with a group of people. In over 5 years nobody has ever mentioned this fight, which would have garnished much attention considering both Ventura's and Chris' celebrity status. Chris Kyle is the only person who recalls his sucker-punch-and-run on Jesse Ventura.
3) Jesse has always been vocal about his high regard for the troops, especially the SEALs. He was at the bar because he was giving a speech at the SEAL school to a new class of graduates. The claim that he would make such a crazy comment, against his own SEAL group, while Jesse was there to talk with new SEAL grads, and especially at a wake for the first SEAL killed in Iraq is beyond believable.
4) Jesse Ventura says the incident never took place. He was disgusted and hurt that a fellow Navy SEAL would make such a claim against him. He also claims to have never met Chris Kyle, and that the SEAL made up the story to sell more books.
