Ken confirmed he'll be fighting Frank
 
http://samcaplan.proelite.com/82220

While I don't remember anything Ken said during the interview (primarily because when they interviewed him was the only break in between fights)... apparently Ken said he will be fighting Frank. Admins, I know there are several threads speculating about this, just thought this report was a bit more concrete. Ken's lack of mention about the venue for the fight leads me to believe it's only an agreement between Ken and Frank. They could fight in IFL, EliteXC, HDNet, or even Ken's Cage Rage(doubtful) and it'll likely simply be a case of the highest bidder.

While the fight is guaranteed to sell PPV's is there any question who will win this fight? I'd equate this fight to Shamrock Ortiz 3, we know what's going to happen... just want to be reassured of our clairvoyance or watch the shrinking of a grown man's ego. Yes I'm referring to Frank whomping on Ken. Let's be honest, Ken did a lot for the sport but hasn't really adapted (as a fighter) with it. He's a great coach (despite what TUF made him look like) but I think his prime for fighting has passed. This is evident by him losing 7 of his last 10 fights (one win was against the total can Sam Adkins).

Well good, I think its about time they fought each other. I hope that they aren't fighting because they don't like each other, I think that would be silly.

Maybe Frank will dominate Ken like Tito did, maybe Ken will put up a fight this time, its all good to me though I'd still pay to see it.

I think Frank's shown he has better stand-up (even though Ken improved from when he started, his striking isn't nearly as proven) in the Baroni fight. Beating a boxer on his own turf because you can't shoot with a bad knee is pretty damn impressive. Even if Ken does manage to get the fight to the ground (which I've yet to see him use striking to get the fight where he needs it to be... on the ground) I think Frank is more agile on the ground. I wonder what weight class this fight will be at.

Frank's stand-up is a million times better than Ken's. Ken Shamrock is going to get whomped here, since Frank's the better MMA fighter.

The pre-fight promo's should be awesome. Ken & Frank are both guys who know how to build up a fight, so that part will rule. It's too bad that Ken Shamrock has to get brutally beaten again.

Agreed. But at least his brother won't wear a tee shirt afterwards.

Ken had some solid standup during his comeback, but Frank's is just better. Ken also can't work from his back that well, so once again advantage Frank. Ken is broken down, Frank not so much.

Frank knows how to fight and make money, unfortunatley its never the fights I want to see.

I couldn't care less if I saw this fight! Ken fighting Frank! It'll be one of the all time snore-fests. For starters, Ken is finished, he's done. The other thing is that there is no motivation for either to win really. The pay check is coming to them win or lose. Finally, they're brothers and I just can't see them beating each other senseless to win the fight. It'll be more of a, dare I say it again, WWE show.

Completely agreed. Ken's gonna get beat down, more so than he already is. I like one-sided fights sometimes, but not this one, as I like both Shamrock's. The pre-fight hype is gonna be the best part of the event.

Well, considering that Frank & Ken don't really care for each other, I doubt that this is going to be some WWE style fight. Also, I don't see how anyone could find this boring. It's Frank "I am awesome and I am the greatest" Shamrock vs Ken "I once had the best sideburns in the world" Shamrock. Shit should rule.

Also, Frank better hope that Ken doesn't wear the purple undies and sport the sideburns.

Its not gonna be boring, but I really just don't want to see Ken Shamrock get beat down to a pulp again. Dude is taking years off his life.
