Frank Shamrock Just Getting Warmed Up

Quote:
Despite suffering a broken ulna in his fight with Cung Le on March 29, Frank Shamrock told MMAWeekly Radio on Monday night, he’s hopeful that he might be able to get another fight in by the end of the year.

That might be pushing it a bit, unless his superhuman healing powers ratchet into full gear, at least according to his doctors.

“They’re going to do another x-ray next week and see how the bone is healing. They say the short estimate is four to six months and the long estimate is six to eight months,” stated the former Strikeforce middleweight champion.

From the sound of it, the short estimate might be a stretch. It’s not like the injury was a hairline fracture; it was a break that required six screws and a metal plate to repair.

“I don’t feel a lot when I’m fighting, but when something breaks or cracks, I get a little stabbing pain. I felt that in the first round,” said Shamrock as he detailed the injury. “The second round, he got me with another good one in the hand. It was real specific on the location, and that one, I got that stabbing pain again. Then in the third round when he kicked me, I could feel my bones separate and grind against each other.

“I have a really high pain tolerance … but it was really painful. On a scale of 1 to 10, it was like a 15 or so.”

Contrary to the judges, who had the fight scored 30-27, 29-28, and 29-28 for Le following the third round; Shamrock felt that he was controlling where the bout was headed.

“I had him totally on the stand up. He was never going to make it another round or so. I was slowing him down, I was catching his timing, and I was starting to catch his chin. One of us never would have made it out of the fourth round and I don’t think it was going to be me if my arm didn’t break.”

That’s not to say that he is trying to discredit the new champ. Shamrock, in fact, has a lot of respect for Le, saying, “I was really impressed with his chin. He always had this real sharp look in his eye. He never wavered.”

Not at all looking to call it quits because of the injury, he said, “I’m just getting warmed up.”

Shamrock stated that a rematch is definitely in his sites, but it’s not yet his top priority. In a perfect world, he has another fight in mind once he heals up.

“I think the next one should be Ken (Shamrock),” he said of a proposed bout with his adoptive brother. It is a bout aptly christened ‘Blood Brothers.’ “The story is in place; the marketing is in place. I think it is a good moment to do the Ken fight, to tell the story.”

Regardless of what the next chapter is, Shamrock has no plans for it to be the final chapter.

“Fans can rest assured there will be more ass-kickings and there will be much from Frank Shamrock. This is just the beginning.”

Thats pushing it, not even sure if the athletic commission would allow that.

Good read, Frank definetly needs to come in with a different gameplan next time though...he can say if it werent for the arm break he woulda won and yatta, yatta, yatta...but thats what happens when ya block kicks with one arm.

Shamrock Vs Shamrock will be a nice comeback fight for Frank...and by nice I mean easy.

I could tell from the beginning of the fight that Frank wanted to beat Cung Le at his own game. Bad move. I think that Cung is going to tear through MMA once his ground game gets to an elite level. He has ALWAYS been awesome in striking.

I'll admit, he didnt have the best gameplan going in... but props to him for taking the hard road to make it exciting. Would have liked to seen a sub win. But an arm break is almost as good I suppose. Cung's kicks were fast and snappy. I wouldn't have guessed they were hitting quite that hard myself.

grats to the new champ. maybe we'll get a rematch.

Do we really want to see Shamrock vs. Shamrock? I really don't think it will be that interesting! We got one guy who has no chin (Ken Shamrock) vs. the guy who can't defend a takedown if his life depended on it (Frank Shamrock)!

That aside, Frank needs to go for the takedowns more instead of showing everybody that he can strike.

Oh believe me, I dont say it because I want to see it...I just think it is going to happen no matter if Ken we're to lose another 10 matches in the mean time.

I'd pick Frank in a rematch with Cung Le. Really don't care to see him fight Ken, but as he said that will make money. Should probably fight a guy like Santiago, but that won't fill Frank's pockets.

Renzo controlled Shamrock on the ground. Could Le stop his takedowns?

Let the Shamrock brothers duke it out, and give Le Renzo Gracie. Then we'll see if Cung has any ground skills.

I agree with this statement, but honestly is that a bad thing? People pay to see Shamrock or any other MMA athlete bash or be bashed. If these fighters are putting on the big show, why not also look out for their own financial interests.
