Kimbo Slice and Ken Shamrock will finally fight in St. Louis tonight

Street-fighting legend Kimbo Slice will finally step into a cage to fight mixed martial arts and wrestling legend Ken Shamrock on Friday night, seven years after the fight was originally planned.

Slice, a former Miami football player whose real name is Kevin Ferguson, rose to prominence on YouTube before attempting a sanctioned fighting career, will return to an MMA cage for the first time since 2010 when he headlines a Bellator card in St. Louis against Ken Shamrock.

Slice went 1-1 during his time in the UFC. He was knocked out by Matt Mitrione in May 2010 and was released from the organization. He has gone 7-0 as a boxer and also done some acting in the meantime.

The 41-year-old was signed by Bellator in January and will fight Shamrock, 51, who also last competed in MMA in 2010.

The two were supposed to fight on CBS in 2008, but Shamrock was injured during warmups and was unable to compete.

The main card, which also features a featherweight title bout between Daniel Weichel and champion Patricio Freire, airs live on Spike (Channel 29) at 6 p.m.

Las Vegan Michael Chandler, the former lightweight champion, is also in action against Derek Campos.
