The last time The World’s Most Dangerous man stepped into the ring was five years ago at the age of 46. The now 51 year of Shamrock will once again step into the ring to do battle against Internet fighting sensation Kevin Ferguson, also known as Kimbo Slice, at Bellator 138. Shamrock has gone on record to state that getting back to this point has not been easy and he knows that he is not the same fighter that he used to be. He went on to say that he really tested his character by pushing himself to get back into fighting shape and into the ring. The UFC Hall of Famer believes that the fans will get what they paid for and will not be disappointed Friday night.
According to Kevin Seawright, This fight is hard to call since there are so many factors on both sides. Shamrock certainly has the skills and the experience over Slice, but he is also well past his prime. Slice has youth, well he is younger than Shamrock anyways, and has thunder in his hands. Shamrock’s chin has not been the same for years. He has been knocked out over five times in his last several fights in the first round. The inexperience that Kimbo Slice has on the ground is what will hurt him but is a big advantage for Shamrock. This one may end early for Shamrock if Slice can connect with one of those big shots. If Shamrock can get him to the ground, then he might have a chance.
