This is the Bellator 149 live blog for Royce Gracie vs. Ken Shamrock, a light heavyweight bout at Friday night's Bellator event at the Toyota Center in Houston, Texas.

Gracie, who hasn't competed since June 2, 2007, will face Shamrock, who has lost three of his past five fights, in the co-main event.

Check out the Bellator 149 live blog below.

Round 1: I have no idea how we're going to top the absurdity of Kimbo-Dada 5000, but we're damn sure going to try. Time for the legends. Royce Gracie gets an amazing introduction. Jacob Mantalvo is our referee. Gracie comes out throwing a few soft teeps and high kicks. Shamrock fakes a body kick. The crowd is already getting restless. Shamrock wades inside first but nothing much happens. Gracie kicks the lead leg. Shamrock rushes inside and gets tripped to the floor! Gracie starts pounding on Shamrock from top position! And it's over. Quick trigger on the stoppage there. Shamrock is furious. Replay shows it may have been a knee to baby nuts that lead to the trip.
