Steroids in MMA
Which MMA Fighter Will Test Positive For Steroids Next?

Thank You, MMA Gods: Kimbo Slice vs. Ken Shamrock to Headline June 20th Bellator Event


And there’s PLENTY MORE WHERE THAT CAME FROM. (*cries*)

When it was announced that Bellator had signed Kimbo Slice after a five year hiatus from the sport, we were confused.

When we tried handpicking who he should fight for his big debut, we were cautious, but hopeful.

When Bellator broke the news that Slice would be fighting Ken Shamrock — 51 year-old, bare-knuckle boxing, security guard to the stars(ish) Ken Shamrock — earlier today, we fell to our knees and thanked the Gods, for a great blessing had been bestowed upon us.

If you recall, Slice and Shamrock were actually scheduled to fight at Elite XC: Heat back in 2008, until a last-minute cut suffered in pre-fight warm-ups saw Shamrock forced out of the bout. He was replaced by UFC alum (and light heavyweight) Seth Petruzelli, who yadda yadda something something EliteXC collapsed.

This, is the greatest piece of news we have heard in quite some time. Seriously, just when you think that Mickey Rourke’s face will be the weirdest thing you’ll see all week, the MMA Gods make their presence known and just…(*kisses fingers*). According to ESPN, Slice vs. Shamrock will transpire on June 20th and be televised live on Spike TV from St. Louis, Missouri. That being said, only the noobiest of TUF noobs would not do everything in their power to see this thing live. I’m already checking TripAdvisor for the cheapest travel/hotel combo. Does the 10 a.m. Greyhound to Ferguson seem like a good idea?

We’ve been publicly stating our desire to see Bellator go full freakshow (“embrace the crazy,” if you will) for some time now, and one Justin-McCully-in-a-clown-rapist-mask at a time, they have been answering our prayers. But this, this is the pinnacle of it all. This is PRIDE. This is Super Hluk. This is the Coker era.

Bless you, MMA, and bless you, Bellator. Scott Coker is our shepherd; we shall not want.
