Slice-Shamrock scheduled for June Bellator MMA event on Spike TV

February 26, 2015

MMA Junkie reports that Kevin “Kimbo Slice” Ferguson will finally meet Ken Shamrock as part of a Bellator card slated for June 20th at the Scottrade Center in St. Louis.  The show will headline a Spike TV televised main card.

As MMA Junkie points out, the Bellator event will take place on the same day as UFC Fight Night 69 in Berlin.  The UFC event looks to be a Fight Pass only card.

Slice signed with Bellator MMA last month.  The 41 year old has not fought in MMA since his loss to Matt Mitrone in 2010.

Kimbo Slice-Ken Shamrock was the main event on an EliteXC card on CBS back in 2008.  MMA fans may recall that Shamrock was a late scratch and replaced by Seth Petruzelli.  Slice was knocked out by Petruzelli in the first round and the reputation of Kimbo took a big hit.

Payout Persepctive:

It will be interesting to see how the Missouri Athletic Commission deals with this fight as Slice is in his 40s and has not fought in 5 years.  Shamrock is 51 and although he was scheduled to fight in a bare knuckle match in April, he last had an MMA fight in November 2010.  The booking falls in line with Bellator’s “tent pole” events.  We saw this last November with Ortiz-Bonnar.  It was a ratings success.  Slice-Shamrock should provide the same.  Slice has been a ratings draw and Bellator is hoping that he still is.

    The winner of this fight can go ahead and fight the winner of CM Punk vs TBA in the first UFC/Bellator co-promoted event and crown a ‘King of Freakshow’.

    Now seriously, will this fight even happen? Shamrock has had quite the difficulty in fulfilling his obligations in the past.
