Kimbo Slice vs Frank Shamrock

The promotion is apparently working overtime, including replacing Shamrock with Seth Petruzelli, to ensure that Slice still has an opponent for when the CBS broadcast concludes, which begins at 9 p.m. ET.

***Update*** Seth Petruzelli will indeed face Kimbo Slice in tonight's main event.
