Happy Ending Alert: Ken Shamrock Finds Gainful Employment as 50 Centís Bodyguard
UFC Hall of Famer Ken Shamrock hasnít set foot inside of an MMA cage since November 2010, and since then his primary sources of income have been stiffing promoters and begging his fans to talk to him. In a way, itís good to see the man making an honest living again.
Earlier this week, Shamrock was spotted at CES working as a bodyguard for rapper/headphone mogul 50 Cent. There was no Ken Shamrock autograph line. No Shamrock-branded iPhone case, thank God. Just an aging tough guy in a shiny suit, keeping his eyes open in case shit jumped off. After the above photo surfaced on twitter, Shammy tweeted to Fitty, ďitís been a pleasure working with you and your team, you are by far one of the classiest gents I have ever worked with. God bless.Ē
Given the rough characters that 50 tends to associate with, its understandable that heíd want to keep Shamrock nearby. After all, Kenís the type of guy who will punch first, and figure out your gender later. So kudos to Shamrock for finding a steady paycheck long after washing out of MMA. Lord knows we canít all open juice bars.
Hope he keeps out of the cage and doing something sensible instead of chasing/pulling out of, big fights.
Although this must also be a sign his Lions Den Gyms are not doing too good
