PostSubject: “Kimbo” vs. “Tank” Main Event Canceled   Wed 03 Oct 2007, 3:23 pm



An Oct. 12 Cage Fighting Fury Championship main event between Internet brawler Kimbo Slice (0-0 MMA, 0-0 UFC) and former UFC fighter David “Tank” Abbott (9-13 MMA, 5-8 UFC) has been canceled, MMAjunkie.com has learned.

The headline fight between the popular sluggers was supposed to headline CFFC 6 at the Trump Taj Mahal in Newark, N.J., but according to event promoters, the bout has been called off. A reason for the cancelaton wasn’t given.

Rumors that the bout had scratched surfaced earlier today on The Underground Forum at mma.tv.

Slice rose to fame as an underground brawler when his fights were marketed on the Internet. The former football player and bodyguard for pornography companies made his MMA debut at CFFC 5 in an exhibition bout with boxer Ray Mercer. Slice needed just 72 seconds to earn the victory via guillotine choke.

He was then slated to face Abbott, a longtime MMA veteran who made his Octagon debut at UFC 6. He most recently fought in the organization at UFC 45, where he suffered a TKO to Wesley “Cabbage” Correira.

Despite losing its main event, the CFFC 6 show is expected to go on as scheduled. Former UFC fighters such as Dennis Hallman, Marcio Cruz and “The Ultimate Fighter 5’s” Brian Geragthy are all on the fight card.
