Doug Yasinsky, more popularly known as “Dashing” Doug Flex, during his professional wrestling days said it took him only ten seconds to realize that last weekend’s Bellator 138 main event, Kimbo Slice vs Ken Shamrock was a fake, or what those in the pro wrestling industry refer to as a “work.”

“If he (Jimmy Smith, Bellator commentator) really believes this was a legit fight, then he loses all credibility with me,” Yasinsky said.

“I’ve seen harder and more legit pro wrestling fights inside of a ring than I did inside that cage,” Yasinsky said in speaking of the bout.

Yasinsky has a wealth of knowledge in the pro wrestling industry having won the Canadian International Tag Team Championship in 1988 and 1989, the Galaxy Wrestling Federation Tag Team Championship in 1990 and the North American Wrestling Federation Tag Team Championship in 1991, the U.S. Heavyweight Championship in 1989 and the Galaxy Wrestling Federation Heavyweight Championship in 1990.doug6

His professional wrestling journey took him to Japan, Canada and mostly every state in the continental U.S.

He began promoting amateur boxing in 1992 and soon thereafter he started promoting professional wrestling.

In 2009, Yasinsky and Jeff Sibbach launched the World Cage-fighting Championships, which hosts both amateur and professional mixed martial arts bouts.

Was the Kimbo vs Ken Shamrock fight fixed?  Will we ever really know?
