Kimbo Slice, of Miami, returns to CBS following his third round TKO over James "Colossus" Thompson on May 31. Kimbo will be squaring off against Ken Shamrock, of Reno, Nev., a true MMA legend and one of the biggest draws in the sport. Known as "The World's Most Dangerous Man,'' 22 of his 26 wins have come via submission.

JAKE SHIELDS VS. PAUL DALEY

Jake Shields, of San Francisco, enters the cage with an undefeated streak spanning nearly five years. A winner of 10 straight, Shields is widely considered one of the best in the world at 170 pounds. He currently holds the title of EliteXC Welterweight Champion. Shields' opponent on Oct. 4 is Paul Daley, of Nottingham, England, a dangerous Muay Thai specialist, who is also the current Cage Rage Welterweight Champion. Daley has won his last six fights, five by KO. Thirteen of his 18 wins have come by stoppage.

GINA CARANO VS. KELLY KOBALD

Gina Carano, of Las Vegas, will attempt to follow up her impressive second-round TKO over Kaitlin Young on May 31 on CBS when she takes on Kelly Kobald of Minneapolis. Carano is a skilled Muay Thai specialist with model looks and world-class ability, while Kobald began her career 16-0-1.

MURILO "NINJA" RUA VS. BENJI RADACH

Murilo "Ninja" Rua, of Curitiba, Brazil, is a Jiu-Jitsu and Muay Thai black belt. A former EliteXC 185-pound champion, "Ninja" has won five of his last six, including a first-round TKO over Tony Bonello in June. His opponent, Benji Radach, of Castle Rock, Wash., is a heavy-handed veteran who has won five of his last six fights.

In one of the evening's exciting undercard bouts, Brazilian female newcomer, Cristiane Cyborg, who made her U.S. debut on July 26 on CBS, will square off against Japan's Yoko Takahashi. Highlights from this match will be shown during the CBS broadcast.

CBS Sports play-by-play announcer Gus Johnson, cageside analysts Frank Shamrock and Mauro Ranallo, and reporter Karyn Bryant will return as the "CBS ELITEXC SATURDAY NIGHT FIGHTS" broadcast team.
