So...what if Kimbo Slice had fought Ken Shamrock?
October 20th, 2008
EliteXC announced today it would be closing its doors after less than two years in operation. Director Gary Shaw officially released all fighters from their contracts.
Problems began after the now infamous October 4th card. The night began well with a fantastic performance from Gina Carano and an exciting rematch between champion Robbie Lawler and Scott Smith. Things then took a turn for the worse in the main event.
Ken Shamrock, winless in his previous five fights, looked visibly intimated from the moment he stepped in the cage. At the sound of the bell, Shamrock cautiously stepped forward as opponent Kimbo Slice took the center of the ring. After a brief exchange, Slice landed a left hand that would change the landscape of MMA.
The shot staggered Shamrock back into the fence. The Miami native smelled blood and rushed in to finish. Shamrock did nothing but cover up while Slice unloaded a barrage of hooks and uppercuts. After a devastating left to the body, Shamrock crumpled to the mat. Referee Dan Miragliotta, caught out of position during the melee, allowed ten seconds of more punishment before stepping in.
It only took a few moments before those in attendance sense something was wrong. Shamrock lay motionless against the fence while ringside doctors looked at him. After a tense fifteen minutes, the "World's Most Dangerous Man" was carried off on a stretcher.
In the two weeks following the bout, the sport has been put to the test by the mainstream media and politicians. Angry mothers called local CBS affiliates complaining about the incident. Dana White, when asked for comment, said, "I've been building this sport for ten years, and these [expletive] [expletive] it up in ten minutes."
Shamrock, in a coma since the fight, has been given an optimistic outlook by doctors.
Kimbo would close in on shamrock than shammy throws a front kick followed by a shot to the beard that stuns Kimbeard DOWN KIMBO shamrock follows with about 5 more shots to the beard ending Kimbos run in EXC
They both suck but since Kimbo can punch hard he would probably knock shamrock out because shamrock can't take a punch anymore.
I think Shamrock would evade the early rush by Kanbo and then slip on the beardoplata to which Kanbo would have no defense and have to tap out.
kenny would brake kimbo's ankle
The hype would simply live on for awhile longer. I was ticked they got this fight just because it was obviously a has been fighter vs a younger guy, both who are known for there striking. DUH, Kimbo would win it but it wouldnt mean much but the mainstream would make a big deal with it.
Maybe the announcer would have said
"This is the biggest victory in MMA HISTORY!"
Kimbo would have knocked Ken's block off.
