Kimbo Slice to Face Ken Shamrock

EliteXC has made a bold move and will put their biggest star, Kimbo Slice, into the ring with MMA legend Ken Shamrock on October 4. Despite being a mummy, Shamrock is more dangerous than any other opponent Slice has faced. Shamrock's physical skills may have weakened, but he still possesses a variety of submission holds Slice has never seen in a match. As we witnessed in Slice's last fight, his ground skills remain weak. If Shamrock can create a scramble and get him down, it could turn into an interesting match-up. Personally, I see this thing ending in the first round when Kimbo knocks Shamrock's mummy head off.

Shamrock's arrival in EliteXC could also mean we might finally see Frank and Ken Shamrock meet in the ring. A fight between the two brothers has been talked about for years, however, no one has been able to finalize it. The result of the fight with Slice would not make a huge difference for a follow-up fight with his brother, Frank. EliteXC needs all the help and publicity it can get, so I would be very surprised if they do not make a big push for the battle of the Shamrock brothers.

He will be outweighed by 20-25 pounds. I hope he is getting tons of bucks for this.

If Gannon could do this to Kimbo, Shamrock will beat him - old as he is...

At least Shamrock has a ghost of a chance. It will surely give us Kimbo haters a chance to hope he will get retired from the spotlight since his fifteen minutes of fame is up.
