Rumor: Kimbo Slice Vs. Sean Gannon Rematch To Happen On CBS

According to Josh Gross with SI.com, the potential list of opponents for Kimbo Slice on October 4th when EliteXC returns to CBS is narrowing down.

According to Gross the proposed match-up between Brett Rogers and Kimbo is being put on hold by EliteXC execs out of fear of Kimbo losing this fight and his marketability going down the toilet when they need him the most. Kimbo is a huge draw for the company and with rumors of them having money issues, EXC can not afford to have Kimbo lose.

Another proposed match-up would have seen legend Ken Shamrock face off against Slice, but as we here at MMANEws.com reported earlier this week, Shamrock has other things on his mind right now in terms of different fights and a deal could not be worked out to make the Kimbo/Shamrock fight happen.

The most interesting news from the Sports Illustrated article was the the most likely opponent for Kimbo at this point is none other than the only man to beat him in a street fight, Sean Gannon.

The fans of Kimbo who know him mostly from his YouTube street fights would know of the first fight between Gannon and Slice, which if you haven't seen can be watched by clicking HERE.

While this fight may have drawing power, it somewhat takes Mixed Martial Arts in the wrong direction in terms of what it is all about. Having Gannon and Kimbo meet up again could be a stand up and bang it out war, but it really isn't MMA, it is a rematch of a streetfight only this time in a cage and being broadcast during a Primetime TV slot.http://www.mmanews.com/other/Rumor:-...en-On-CBS.html
I can honestly say I will not miss EXC if it goes out of business. Main events this bad deserves no mercy!

A retired never was, sounds about right for Elite XC, the thing I dont get is eventually Kimbo will lose to one of these cans and then they cant evn pass the hype to somebody who can run with it, at least beating Kimbo would give Rodger some hype and make a Bigfoot/Rogers fight marketable, what does Elite XC do if Gannon beats Kimbo?

Will Kimbo's boys be allowed to come into the cage and stop Gannon every time he tries for a guillotine or to throw knees? Seriously how hard would you laugh if this guy comes in and destroys Bimbo Slice?

This is a terrible idea unless Gannon is still training maybe he can KO Kimbo again. I think its another can to feed Kimbo a Win this is terrible.

This is bad.

I want EXC to make it (especially for the women's division they are building), but they're dooming themselves with stunts like this.

If they spent more time promoting MMA than Kimbo Slice, I think they would be fine.

This is probably the stupidest fight to ever be thought of. I hope Gannon wrecks Kimbo.

Sad thing is, this has the opportunity to be one of the most watch MMA fights due to it being a rematch for Kimbo's only "loss" with those bare knuckle fights.

This is just lame. I can't wait for EXC to reach the toliet which is a shame because they have extrememily talented fighters in Jake Shields, the Women's Division, Robbie Lawler, Ninja, and that's just to name a few. But yes, let's over look all those guys and give Kimbo the lime light so we can get 1 more good night of ratings before Kimbo is exposed for the shame that he is. I hope Gannon pulls through.

EDIT: Just saw this while reading the Daley/Shields article on MMAweekly.com

Looks like Shaw cancells out the chance of Kimbo/Gannon thank god.

Quote:
Another huge question mark surrounding the pivotal Oct. 4 event on CBS is the opponent for the already announced Kevin “Kimbo Slice” Ferguson. Most speculation has centered on Brett Rogers and Ken Shamrock.

Shaw, however, was non-committal on the bout, saying that they have been talking with several possible opponents, but still have not made a final determination. The one rumor that he would squash was the recent talk of a match-up with Sean Gannon, the fighter that Slice built much of his underground fighting sensationalism off of.

“There are several options we’re considering right now. Gannon is not the guy,” he said firmly.
