It’s almost like Bellator and Spike TV would prefer if Kimbo Slice won this fight. The biggest revenge fight for a fight that never actually happened is almost upon us. Taking a place in St. Louis (the gateway to revenge city), the 41 year old Slice will go toe to toe with 51 year old Ken Shamrock in the main event of Bellator 138 on June 20th.
“The Score So Kimbo and Ken Can Eat More” will be lauded by purists who want to keep the art in professional cage fighting but will also probably shatter all Bellator on Spike TV rating records. You will watch with at least one eye open and Scott Coker will laugh to himself like a Saturday morning cartoon villain when no one else is around. From a technical perspective and taking into account advanced fight analytics it looks like Slice is way bigger than Shamrock.
Are heavyweight versus middleweight fights in MMA still a thing? Will somebody think of the children! What’s former US Senator John McCain doing right at this moment? If McCain checks his twitter on his gold iPhone 6 Plus and sees this video he might try and shut down all of MMA again.
The score will be settled between @KimboSlice and @ShamrockKen in the @BellatorMMA cage on June 19th! #Bellator138 https://t.co/fcsyWKXCnk
