On Thursday morning, Bellator MMA officials announced a special promotion giving that will give fans the opportunity to be flown out to St. Louis on an all-expenses paid trip to witness Bellator 138, aka “Bellator MMA: Unfinished Business,”with a guest of their choosing.

In addition to the grand prize trip, Bellator is also putting several other prizes up for grabs, including merchandise and memorabilia.

Bellator 138 is set to be headlined by highly publicized matchup between UFC Hall of Famer and internet sensation Kimbo Slice.

Slice and Shamrock were originally scheduled to face on an ill fated ElitceXC card back in 2008 before Shamrock was forced to pull out the day of the fight after suffering a cut above his eye while warming up. Slice, whose real name is Kevin Ferguson, would go on to infamously lose by TKO to Shamrock’s replacement Seth Petruzelli just 14 seconds into their contest, which all but slammed the final nail into the coffin of EltieXC.

Since that night seven years ago, Slice (4-2) to rose even more prominence after an appearance on the 10th season of The Ultimate Fighter, followed by a brief run in the UFC. In his most recent bout, fans saw him on the receiving end of second round TKO to TUF castmate Matt Mitrione at UFC 113 in May 2010. Following the contest the UFC would part ways with Slice.

Shamrock (28-15-2), also a former UFC Superfight champion, would go onto compete just five more times after he was forced to pull of his fight against slice, picking up a 2-3 before going into semi-retirement. The 51-year-old has not competed since suffering a hamstring injury in his loss Mike Bourke in 2010.
