Scott Coker thinks Kimbo Slice vs. Ken Shamrock could beat record ratings
Bellator 138 is to take place this Saturday and it will be headlined by two MMA veterans – Ken Shamrock and Kimbo Slice.
Although both fighters did they last matches in 2010 and their shape in the ring might be questionable, there is no doubt this match attracted a lot of media and fan attention. Shamrock and Slice were originally to fight in 2009, but EliteXS promotion went out of business and the match never happened. However, now seven years later the two fighters are to fight nevertheless. Bellator CEO Scott Coker is convinced this match will have record ratings when it comes to Bellator.
"Here we are back so many years later putting that fight together," Coker said. "There's a circle of life here to this fight. And I'm excited to watch it. I'm telling you right now, there's some heat between these guys. These guys do not like each other. I've been around a lot of fighters in my career. Usually they can talk the talk, they can have the little publicity scuffle or whatever. This is real. There was times where I was like these guys are gonna fight right now."
