KIMBO ON TV THE NEXT TWO EVENINGS

EliteXC Heavyweight Sensation Will Appear On David Blaine Special Tonight;
Then Will Be a Featured Guest On “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” On Thursday

LOS ANGELES (Sept. 24, 2008) — Incredibly popular YouTube fighting legend and undefeated mixed martial arts superstar, Kimbo Slice, will face legendary Hall Of Famer, Ken Shamrock, on Saturday, Oct. 4, on CBS at the BankAtlantic Center in Sunrise, Fla.

First, however, Kimbo, will appear on a new, two-hour primetime special, David Blaine: Dive of Death tonight and will be a special guest on the nationally televised late-night talk show “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” the following night, tomorrow/Thursday, Sept. 25.

Both shows air on the ABC Television Network. David Blaine: Dive of Death will be televised from 9-11 p.m. ET/PT. “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” airs at 12:05 a.m. ET/PT and 11:05 p.m. CT.

Kimbo will be featured in a unique segment with Blaine in which the magician attempts to replicate the “trick” that took the life of Harry Houdini. Blaine says he chose Kimbo to participate because the exciting, hard-hitting fighter is one of the few people he fears.

So, what’s the “trick” and does Blaine succeed? Well, you’ll have to tune in and find out.

Sitting across from Kimmel, the personable, always-entertaining Kimbo will discuss, among other topics, his eagerly anticipated matchup with Shamrock, “The World’s Most Dangerous Man.”

Kimbo-Shamrock is a featured fight on the third installment of CBS ELITEXC SATURDAY NIGHT FIGHTS on the CBS Television network. The two-hour broadcast (9-11 p.m. ET/PT) also will include fights featuring EliteXC welterweight champion Jake Shields against Paul Daley, women's superstar Gina Carano and MMA standouts Murilo “Ninja” Rua, Benji Radach and Kelly Kobold.

Tickets start at $30 and are available at all Ticketmaster outlets, by phone at (954) 523-3309 in Broward County, (305) 358-5885 in Dade County and (561) 966-3309 in Palm Beach County, online at www.ticketmaster.com and at the BankAtlantic Center box offices (954) 835-7825.

The first live fight begins at 6 p.m. ET. The event is presented by Los Angeles-based ProElite, Inc.’s live fight division, EliteXC.

Besides Kimbo, Kimmel's guests Thursday will include actor Rob Lowe and Chef Chris Bianco.
