SPIKE TV AND BELLATOR MMA PRESENT THE DEFINITIVE LOOK AT TWO OF THE MOST WELL-KNOWN AND COMPLICATED FIGHTERS IN MMA HISTORY WITH "FINALLY: KIMBO vs. SHAMROCK"
Spike TV and Bellator MMA present a compelling and insightful look at one of the most talked about fights of 2015 in "Finally: Kimbo vs. Shamrock." Produced by Leigh Simons, the one-hour documentary debuts on Spike WEDNESDAY, JUNE 17 at 11:00pm ET/PT.
Ken Shamrock and Kimbo Slice took very different paths to stardom. Kimbo Slice was an internet sensation thrust into the spotlight seemingly overnight while Ken Shamrock was an MMA pioneer who fought his way to the top with workman-like resolve and dedication.
Their two paths were supposed to cross in the cage seven years ago. However, on that fateful day of October 4, 2008, a freak accident robbed the MMA world of one of the most anticipated fights in the history of the sport. A fight of epic proportions that never was - now finally will be. On Friday, June 19, the infamous street fighting legend and YouTube sensation Kimbo Slice and "The World's Most Dangerous Man," Ken Shamrock will now meet in the main event of "Bellator: Unfinished Business."
"FINALLY" will take an in-depth look at the events seven years ago and addresses the various conspiracy theories relating to the fight's cancellation. The show travels to the gritty streets of Miami where Kimbo made a name for himself and to San Diego to visit Ken Shamrock's unorthodox training facility. Viewers will get a rare glimpse of these complicated warriors outside of the cage with a first person account of their personal struggles and achievements.
