Ken Shamrock has been medically disqualifed and will not fight against Kimbo Slice.
While getting a light warmup, Shamrock was hit with an accidental headbutt from a training partner. Shamrock was cut above his left eye and received six stitches.
"It needed six stitches," Shamrock said. "We tried to figure a way through this, but the commission said they wouldn't let me fight."
Shamrock called the situation "hard to swalllow" since he's fought with worse injuries before.
Seth Petruzelli will step in for Shamrock.
"I hope that they put this together soon," Shamrock said. "[Slice] deserves a beating, and I will give one to him."
