Blast From Past: Slice, Shamrock To Square Off For Bellator

Kimbo Slice

Kimbo Slice and Ken Shamrock will headline a Bellator MMA event this June from the Scottrade Center in St. Louis, officials announced Thursday.

Set for June 20, the bout will air live on Spike TV.

Slice (4-2) and Shamrock (28-15-2) were set to collide seven years ago under the Strikeforce banner, but Shamrock was removed after suffering a cut. Seth Petruzelli stepped in as a replacement and bested Slice.

“I remember how excited I was when this fight was originally announced, and how disappointed I was when it didn’t come to fruition at that time,” Bellator president Scott Coker said. “I’m very happy we were able to put this one together because I know these guys still have a lot of unfinished business to take care of, and when they do, it will be sometihng special.”

Slice has not competed in MMA since a loss to Matt Mitrione in the UFC after competing on The Ultimate Fighter. Instead, he switched to boxing, where he has won seven in a row.

Shamrock is a member of the UFC’s Hall of Fame.

    If this was a fight 7 yrs ago, I might be interested

    I miss the pre Viacom Bellator days so damn much. That product was perfect, now look at this monstrosity dripping with feces, much like Jim Genias writing.

    What is alarming about this bout isn’t that it is happening, it’s actually quite interesting in a circus sideshow kind of manner, but the fact that it is “headlining” a card.

    You are not saying very much about the quality of your product if this is what will be featured first and foremost on marketing materials for this event.

    I wonder if there’s something with Kimbo and around Missouri, the majority of his boxing fights (I think) were just 30-45 mins away from me at the casinos, and now this match is 3 hrs away from me in StL
