That was a pretty well done documentary. I can see Tito having more respect for Frank then Ken just knowing their personalities. Personally I think they could have covered the Fight Master stint.

The first MMA fighter of the modern era. The first MW/LHW champion of the UFC. How crazy is that.

Glad to see they've put this to rest in a positive way.

Too bad Dana White still doesn't acknowledge his greatness and induct him into the UFC Hall of Fame. That's a huge injustice until he is inducted.

yeah Frank def. needs to be in the HOF.

too bad that the personal issues with the company boss seem to be more important than his accomplishments for the whole sport

I always find it heartbreaking when Frank talks about how he doesn't know how to react to things because he is so broken. This wasn't the first time he has brought it up about how he never really felt like he had a family etc.

Gotta comment again on how outstanding of a documentary this was. A long time coming. He's matured. He is successful now. He wants closure.

Love the part where Nick Diaz says "I am Frank Shamrock. I am Frank Shamrock."

I wanted to share this with you guys.

It may seem rudimentary now, but he had the total package which was an evolution in MMA at the time. Look at his conditioning in the FOURTH ROUND. He's essentially a middleweight fighting a LHW. That's pretty bad ass!

Frank Shamrock vs Tito Ortiz.

He'll be inducted into the UFC Hall Of Fame eventually. He has to. The first ever MW/LHW champ.
