- Next Friday, Ken Shamrock will face Kimbo Slice at Bellator 138. The night before the fight, WP Films and director Darren Wilson's new movie, The Greatest Fight, will premiere online. The documentary gives fans an exclusive look at Ken Shamrock's life and the end of his career.
"Ken's story is so fascinating because he's such an open book—honest almost to a fault," said Wilson. "Throughout this entire process, we both took the stance that no matter what; we were going to tell an honest story. It's not entirely flattering of Ken all the time. But at the end of the day, it's a brutally honest portrayal of someone that a lot of people love and look up to."
You can get more details about the movie at thegreatestfight.com and you can check out the trailer above.
- Shamrock's opponent, Kimbo Slice, is Jim Ross' guest on his latest podcast at Podcast One.
- CM Punk will be on Anik Florian's MMA podcast this Monday at 1:05 PT.
- For the second time in four months, the scheduled Bobby Lashley vs. James Thompson rematch has been cancelled due to injury. The two squared off in 2012, which Thompson won via unanimous decision in Lashley's last loss. Thompson was slated to face Lashley at Bellator 138 next week, but was forced to pull out due to an undisclosed injury. They were also scheduled to fight at Bellator 134 this past February, but the bout was nixed after Lashley suffered an injury. Lashley will now face Dan Charles (9-2) at next week's event, which will air live on Spike TV.
