Shamrock vs Frye. There was alot on the line, like pride and honor. The staredown was truly epic.

Shamrock/Frye gets my vote too. The first fight with Tito was pretty epic as well, people can trash Ken all the want but he puts buts in seats and maked every fight important.

vs Dan Severn(UFC 6)(FEAR THE SHAMROCK PURPLE UNDIES!)

vs Fujita(Pride 10)(Dude was beating the shit out of Fujita until he quit. The quitting part, while sucking, doesn't diminish the fact that Ken kicked some serious ass here).

vs Alexander Otsuka(Pride GP 2000)(Ok, so Otsuka sucks, but Ken looked really good here. Otsuka tries to get cute with some pro wrestling antics, but Ken ain't having it. Nice balance in the mount by Shamrock, and some nice combinations).

vs Don Frye(Pride: Bad Blood)(Epic staredown, and an epic fight. Ken pulls off a flyin' heel hook, and I about crap my pants. Frye is one tough dude. I would've tapped like a little girly man if Ken put me in a heel hook. Wait, I'd be amazed that I saw Ken just perform a flyin' heel hook, and then I'd tap like a little girly man).

Has anyone seen his fight in 2001 against Sam Adkins? I know it only went like a minute and a half, but I'm curious about this. It's like the hidden Ken Shamrock fight.
Otsuka may not be a good fighter, but atleast he has heart.

That doesn't disguise the fact that he sucked. He did beat Marco Ruas, though. That was like when someone as worthless as John Lober beat Frank Shamrock.

I still care about Frank.

...Ok, I really don't.

I'll give Ken credit, he had the balls to fight tough competition like Tito Ortiz & Rich Franklin. Did he lose? of course, but he took those fights. Frank would never do that nowadays. Frank is pretty much worthless now.

Frank was, however, really freakin' awesome in his prime, though.

To Ken's credit every fight he was in on his comback was entertaining; not to mention he almost pulled off the heel hook on Franklin. You got to wonder how better Ken might have been if he had trained outside the Lion's Den. Like Rogan was saying on UFC 40, if he had gotten outside help and better fighters to train with.

ya thats true. thats what he should have done. he might have beaten tito and rich if he had. btw he did really good in that franklin fight. he even almost had rich in a heel hook. if he hadnt slipped who knows what could have happened. sometimes i kinda wish there was a rematch to that.
