“Bellator 138: Unfinished Business” is set for Friday at Scottrade Center. Nine preliminary fights begin at 5:45 p.m. and the five-fight main card starts at 8 p.m.
The main card features “The World’s Most Dangerous Man” Ken Shamrock versus Kimbo Slice, Bellator MMA Featherweight Champion Patricio Pitbull defending his title, former WWE champion Bobby Lashley in heavyweight action and a lightweight fight with former Mizzou standout, and All-American, Michael Chandler.
