The pair were originally booked to fight for the late EliteXC promotion in 2008, but a controversial cut over Shamrock's eye forced the bout to be pulled.
Seven years later, Slice says he's ready to beat the Shamrock of yesteryear.
"Shamrock is still a threat to me," Slice told Jim Ross of The Ross Report. "He's still considered deadly and dangerous to break limbs and submit somebody. I'm just not that motherf***er he's going to submit. I'm just not that guy he's going to tap out. It's not going to happen with me. It's in my DNA to beat his ass.
"I've worked my mind and my body to train for this fight with Shamrock. From back in the day, from many years ago we trained for this fight. This fight isn't going to go the distance."
With the help of a few fudged numbers, Slice compared the 51-year-old Shamrock to some of the greats in combat sports.
"A lot of people ... not a lot of people, actually, just a select few normally just talk about the age as if it's a f***ing factor and it's not," said Slice. "Bernard Hopkins is the man at 52 years old [actually 50]. The head coach at American Top Top, Ricardo Liborio, he's over 50 [actually 47] and can f***ing can anybody. Even these prize fighters that fight for the UFC and like myself in Bellator, he can't be touched.
"Royce Gracie, over 50 , a f***ing threat, still. Mike Tyson, 50 , a threat. So don't underestimate a guy because of that. You're still as strong as you were when you're in your thirties, you're just a couple years wiser, a couple years older. That doesn't change s**t."
After a TKO loss to Matt Mitrione at UFC 113 in 2010, Slice racked up a 7-0 professional boxing record from 2011 to 2013. It's been five years since either man has fought MMA, but Slice says he's got a plan to defend Shamrock's esteemed ground game.
"Ken is going to try this s**t," said Slice. "We know he is. I'm expecting him to. I want him to. I'm daring him to. I'm almost double dog daring this guy to try to do a takedown or shoot in. What could he do to get me to the ground that I am not prepared for? I'm almost anticipating the takedowns. Because of that, I'm going to impose my will and break his jaw in the first round."
According to Slice, Shamrock won't be making much of a lasting career resurgence.
"That's not going to happen, said Slice. "I'm going to go ahead and end it. I'm going to end his career. That's my plan, that's my goal. I trained too hard for this. I waited too long for this fight. June 19 can't come any faster."

FANPOST OF THE DAY
Today's Fanpost of the Day comes via MegaMax.
On Saturday, the UFC returns to Mexico for the second time in seven months for a Heavyweight title unification bout between Cain Velasquez and Fabricio Werdum. On the main card are two fighters set to collide, who only hold a combined three official octagon appearances between them. With former Olympian and rising flyweight contender Henry Cejudo taking on tough Chico Camus on the undercard, fight fans may question the decision to put Yair Rodriguez and Charles Rosa on the main card. Allow me to make you privy to some information that will make you understand that the placement of this fight is well thought out as this contest has tons of potential.
