Last night during Bellator 145 Scott Coker made the announcement that Kimbo Slice would be fighting Dada5000 on February 19th. It was then announced by Kurt Angle, who was the guest of honor, that Ken Shamrock would be fighting Royce Gracie in the main event of the bout.
Below are some reactions from the MMA community regarding the announcement.

Shamrock vs Gracie 3? Bellator must really be chasing that coveted 85-95 year old demographic. #Bellator145
