Kimbo Slice Vs. Ken Shamrock Fight


Kimbo’s next fight is confirmed for October 4th, and it will in fact be Kimbo Slice vs. Ken Shamrock. Immediately after the fight between Kimbo and James Thompson, Shamrock declared that he saw holes in Kimbo’s game, saying he’d be a perfect opponent for him. Needless to say, Brett Rogers is pretty pissed.

After Kimbo vs Shamrock was announced, Brett “The Grimm” Rogers started calling out everyone from Kimbo to Dan Severn. He questions Kimbo’s credibility, calling him and his skills a myth, and claiming Kimbo’s a fraud about coming from any mean streets.
This is devolving into another “who’s harder and from a meaner ghetto” argument but Rogers doesn’t want to shut the hell up. He thought if he called Kimbo out right after fighting Thompson, he’d get the first shot just because it would have everybody talking. Apparently EliteXC doesn’t care, and it’s even rumored that they don’t want Kimbo to fight Rogers for fear that Kimbo might actually lose.
The odds don’t indicate a loss in this next Kimbo vs Shamrock fight. Ken “The World’s Most Dangerous Man” Shamrock is the 44-year-old UFC Hall of Famer with five consecutive losses. His last win was four years ago in 2004 against Kimo Leopoldo. While he has real skills, particularly in submissions, he just gets knocked out way too easily these days. But let’s hope Kimbo vs. Shamrock turns out to be an explosive fight on a good card.
