UFC hall-of-famer Ken Shamrock -- one of the greatest MMA fighters ever -- has been accused of battering a woman at a California mall ... but Ken claims it was an honest mistake ... 'cause he thought she was a he.
Shamrock -- whose nickname is "The World's Most Dangerous Man" -- was hangin' out at a mall in Modesto, CA last month when he saw two women fighting each other in front of the Coach store ... surrounded by a group of lookie loos filming the whole thing.
We're told Shamrock dove into the scrap and tried to pry the women apart ... when one of the bystanders, a HEAVYSET bystander, jumped on his back and tried to rip Ken out of the pile.
Shamrock's rep tells TMZ ... he threw the person off of his back and followed up with a move that knocked the attacker to the ground.
After the person was incapacitated, the crowd shouted at Ken, "You just hit a girl." Ken took a closer look and realized the attacker was in fact a female .. so he immediately backed off.
An officer arrived to the scene and took a battery report against Shamrock, noting the only injury was a slight abrasion to the woman's knee. The report was sent to the District Attorney's Office.
But law enforcement sources tell TMZ ... Shamrock probably won't be prosecuted because officials don't feel the woman he knocked to the ground is a "victim." In fact, they believe Ken was acting in self-defense.
Shamrock's rep notes, "Outside the ring, Ken is not a violent man ... and was only trying to do the right thing."

This should obviously not be funny but it kinda is. Just imagining the Ken Shamrock we saw on TUF try to STOP a fight going on and then when a women jumps on his back he immediately causes more damage then the fight he was trying to stop caused. Hahahhahaha
What a **** though. Who jumps on a guys back when he is trying to stop the fight.
I remember i tried to stop a fight and got a headbutt to the chin while the person tried to get up and get back at the person he was fighting. It was an accident but it still had me walking on wobbly legs. Safe to say i was pretty upset haha
