There was a brief few moments in their much-hyped war where mixed martial arts legend Ken Shamrock thought he had nemesis Kimbo Slice beaten.
Fight started with a few takedowns by shamrock. But action took turn when Ken secured doube hooks and a good rear choke. Kimbo looked like he was going to either go out or tap out, but the submission specialist was unable to seal the deal and Slice eventually escaped the choke. After a wild scramble, the hated rivals stumbled to their feet, both gasping for air. After they squared up, Slice was all over Shamrock and landed a few right hands. They bothered the 51-year old Shamrock, who tried to brawl with the more powerful Floridian former street fighter, but it was of no use. Another booming right hand landed cleanly on Shamrock’s forehead, sending him sprawling backward into the cage and down onto the seat of his trunks.
Slice was about to rush in for some good ground and pound but referee Big john McCarthy stepped in to stop to the fight for a dazed shamrock was still out.
Kimbo Slice came out a victor of the recent Bellator MMA 138.
