Last night in Houston, Bellator MMA held one of its flagship shows at Toyota Center. The event, Bellator 149, was headlined by a trilogy fight between mixed martial arts legends Ken Shamrock and Royce Gracie.
In the co-main event, street fighting pioneers Kevin “Kimbo Slice” Ferguson and Dhafir “Dada 5000” Harris settled their bad blood in the cage.
The event was, well, interesting to say the least, and didn’t go without it’s fair share of criticism and controversy.
Gracie earned the first TKO victory of his career by finishing Shamrock with strikes after the referee missed a blantant knee to the groin, while Slice simply outlasted an exhausted Dada 5000 before a gust of wind knocked him face first onto the mat.
