    Contrary to heavy speculation, Sean Gannon will not face Kimbo Slice at CBS/EliteXC Saturday Night Fights III. A source close to the situation informed MMAScoops.com that Gannon was asking for too much money, primarily because he would be risking his job as a police officer by taking the fight. The two sides apparently couldn't come to an agreement financially and that fight will now not happen.

    The front runner now appears to be MMA legend Ken Shamrock, though nothing is guaranteed at this point.

    Brett Rogers is also still a possibility though EliteXC would like to avoid making that fight just yet.

    seriously someone needs to phone ken and tell him to make a fucking game. That game plan needs to include him taking him down. Hes gonna just stand there like Tank and get KTFO then EliteXC will pay him another 5g to tell everyone that Kimbo is the hardest striker he has ever faced. Then comes even more of a hype train.

    tito would destroy Kimbo regardless of weightclass they fought in

    Ken however,,,,well,,,,it's a step up for kimbo but not that much of a step up.

    What happened to Brett Rogers? We want to see that fight. Ken got knocked out with a grazing punch in his last fight.

    wtf..Ken is BEYOND washed up. I would've rather seen him fight Gannon, or what about Monson or Ricco Rodriguez? This shits a fucken joke.

    lol

    Is Ricco Rodriguez or even Jeff Monson really considered top talent? The clumsy football guy from the Human Weapon show nearly beat Ricco, I think it was a draw...I MEAN COME ON!

    I wouldn't say top talent, but they would both beat kimbo as long as dan mirgaioalthar isn't the ref.
