Ken Shamrock Injured, "EliteXC: Heat" Main Event Cancelled?

Props to MMARated:
MMARated.com has learned that Ken Shamrock sustained a cut above his eye in the last 24 hours while training and WILL NOT be fighting in tonight's main event bout against Kimbo Slice.

EliteXC officials are scrambling to find a last minute replacement for Shamrock. We have heard that Frank Shamrock - who is calling the fight for CBS - offered to step in at the last minute but is ultimately not fighting. EliteXC has offered Slice Seth Petruzelli (pictured right) - who was scheduled to fight Aaron Rosa tonight. As of right now, Kimbo has yet to officially accept the fight.
Update via MMARated:
We are now hearing that EliteXC officials may have found a doctor who may clear Shamrock tonight after all. EliteXC may be on the verge of dodging a bullet of epic proportions.
Update via MMARated:
They skipped the Petruzelli vs. Rosa fight. This might mean that Petruzelli is replacing Shamrock after all.
Update via MMARated:
Ken Shamrock has left the arena. He is not fighting tonight.
