CFFC 6 Rumor: Kimbo Slice vs. Tank Abbott Cancelled

Reports have been all over the UG Forums, that CFFC 6 has been cancelled or just the fight between Kimbo Slice and Tank Abbott has been cancelled. No reason is yet known. Fighters on the card are confused and we will be trying to verify the news as soon as possible.

UPDATE – according to FiveOuncesOfPain – the fight is still on, but their are issues with PPV.

According to Nick Lembo, the counsel to the New Jersey State Athletic Control Board, the card has not been canceled. Lembo indicated he had spoken with CFFC promoter Felix Martinez in the last 24 hours upon hearing some of the rumors. He indicated that Martinez said the show was still on but there are some issues pertaining to the pay-per-view provider. Apparently a deal between CFFC and the initial PPV production company it chose to televise the event is no longer in place.

I also contacted Bas Rutten for comment in regard to the fight since he trained Slice for his MMA debut against pro boxer Ray Mercer as well as prepping him for the upcoming fight against Abbott. According to Rutten, the fight is still on to his knowledge because Slice has been training with him every day in preparation for Abbott and has made no mention of the fight being canceled.

UPDATE – The fight is still on, but CFFC has lost its deal with InDEMAND PPV, they are currently negotiating a deal to have the event broadcast live via the Internet. No other details are known

Here’s a quote from CFFC promoter Felix Martinez:

“It’s expensive to be on pay-per-view; it’s going to cut cost,” Martinez said. “I got so many complaints about pay-per-view. A lot more fans will get to see it live now.”

    Kimbo seems to get the most comments and I cant figure out is it because people love him or hate him?

    Ok…So I need to know. Does anybody know if this fight between Tank and Kimbo actually took place? I keep hearing it was going to happen and that was it. At the top of this site it said it was canceled but then he heard more recent info that it wasn't. It was supposed to take place 10-12 well it's 12-22 and still nothing. I've been searching for 2 months and cannot find out. So please somebody tell me if this fight happened and if it did who won and where I might be able to see it or read about it.

    Tank abbot could lose but I really think he will win. Kimbo is tough but anyone looks tough when you put them up againsts pussies amagine tank fighing those guys on the internet? Remeber last time kimbo tried to fight someone from the UFC he losts and it wasnt a real MMA fight. Kimbo has a good chance of wining but there doubt in my mind kimbo would lose if he fought tank in his prime.
