Ken was trained by guys like Funaki & Buzz Sawyer, so it really shouldn't surprise anyone that he had his guys go through hell to be in his camp.

Dang fighting a lot of Chute Boxe guys in a row is tough enough, but in a purely kickboxing fight? That would suck lol

Too bad that they can't seem to produce much of a fighter any more. In fact, after Ken, Frank, and Guy had their run in the early days when MMA was in its infancy in the US, they haven't really produced anybody significant since.

C'mon, it's because they're a bunch of loudmouths that got in man-drama fights with Tito (and in Ken's case, with anyone who looked at him). Other than that, they're really not very remarkable.

Actually, the Den was a really solid training camp in its day, popping out solid fighter after solid fighter. That camp was way ahead of its time, and produced some really solid fighters.

Mezger has a bunch of solid up-and-comers coming out of his Lions Den here in Dallas (on HDNet).

Is BJ Penn significant because Frank Shamrock is basically the guy who turned him from BJJ practioner to well rounded Mixed Martial Artist.

Also Guy Mezger is training Shane Roller of Team Takedown at least for a while and he has some huge potential.

This is good to know, since Mezger was a guy who really had it all.
