Ken drew more money though. Also, when you say "Shamrock" to an MMA fan, they'll 99% of the time say Ken. Ken's even recognized by casual fans. Frank is not. Ken can say that the UFC might not have taken off the way it did if it weren't for him. UFC 40 was a huge event, and Shamrock(And Ortiz) were the reasons why.

Frank was the more naturally talented Shamrock, but Ken knew how business worked. When Ken cut a promo, it was to make money. When Frank cuts a promo, it's to stroke his own ego.

Also, I don't get the whole "Renzo did nothing on the ground". Like Ghizman & pt447 said, Renzo was looking for more dominant position's, and taking his time to make sure he'd get a submission. Renzo was in control, and there wasn't a damn thing Frank could do about it(Except throw illegal knee's). Hell, blame Frank for letting Renzo get those positions with ease.
