CagePotato Poll: Was Ken Shamrock vs. Kimbo Slice a Work?


(Here it is: What will soon be known as the Zapruder film of MMA footage.)

Chalk it up to the marketing brilliance of Ken Shamrock, the Coker Era of Bellator matchmaking, or the undeniable Internet prescence of Kimbo Slice, but here it is Monday morning, and the only thing anyone can talk about is the Bellator 138 main event. Nevermind that there was a perfectly acceptable UFC Fight Pass card over the weekend as well, or that Bellator 138′s co-main event featured one of the most brilliant comebacks you will ever see — all we want to know is: Did the 51-year-old man take a dive against the 41-year-old man?

This is, of course, a ludicrous question to anyone who saw the axe wound that Slice opened up over Shamrock’s eye, but then again, when has a piece of obvious evidence like that ever stopped us from crafting completely nonsensical conspiracy theories? Internet’s gotta Internet, amiright? You can count Joe Rogan among the Shammy-Slice truthers, so with that in mind, we decided mocked up a little survey to make sure all your voices are heard (as long as those voices conform to 1 of the 4 options we’ve allowed you to choose from).

Join us after the jump to weigh in!

Dude Wipes, Spray Tans, and Unnecessary Side Burns: A Bellator 138 Weigh-Ins Exclusive

Describing the atmosphere of a Bellator weigh-in — especially one headlined by the freakiest freakshow fight this side of Kinnikuman vs. Bob Sapp – is a difficult thing to do on paper. The energy is not quite as high as at the typical UFC event (well, a pay-per-view, anyway) and the loudest bouts of applause from the half-filled floor seating generally are oft reserved for the bevy of local fighters competing on the evening’s undercard. There is a distinct lack of frills at a Bellator event, which makes sense given that the promotion is now run under the guidance of Scott “No Nonsense” Coker.

At yesterday afternoon’s Bellator 138: Unfinished Business weigh-ins, which took place at the Scottrade Center in downtown St. Louis, the atmosphere was similarly underwhelming for a card that features the likes of Patricio Pitbull, Daniel Straus, and Michael Chandler to name a few. It was the featherweight champion who made the biggest impact, however, both on and off the scale. After missing weight on his first try, Pitbull frustratingly addressed the media about being the co-main event to a couple of fighters he felt “sorry for” before openly admitting that he would NOT be watching their fight. Talk about a company man, amiright?

VIDEO: Spike TV’s “Finally: Kimbo vs. Shamrock” Documentary

Now that we’re all in agreement about the undeniable awesomeness that is the Bellator 138 main event, SpikeTV has released their full, unedited documentary on the grudge match 7 years in the making between 51 year-old Ken Shamrock and 41-year-old Kimbo Slice. In what’s basically being billed as “Father Time vs. Spring Chicken”, Spike takes an in depth-look at the now infamous night that Shamrock vs. Slice were originally supposed to throw down back in 2008, as well as what each guy has been up to since. For Shamrock, it’s living in a van Winnebago down by the river tire store, and for Slice, it’s balancing an ever-growing family with an ever-baller-as-f*ck lifestyle.

“Finally: Kimbo vs. Shamrock” debuts tonight on Spike TV at 11 p.m. ET/PT.
