Ken Shamrock On Kimbo:""I believe that I have the ability to test his weaknesses."

http://www.fightline.com/news/2008/3...k_317622.shtml

On a potential bout with Kimbo Slice:

"You know, it's funny. People ask me, 'what, are you crazy, you'd fight him?' And it's like, listen, 'once a warrior, always a warrior.' I don't care if I was in a wheelchair, if somebody asked me to fight, wanted me to fight somebody, I'd fight him. That's just my heart, that's just who I am. And whether I think that I've got a chance or not, what being in a wheelchair I'd still fight them. But I believe that Kimbo is very beatable, you know, I'm not just saying that because there's an opportunity there. You know what, the guy's young, he's big, he's strong, he's had some success, but anybody that is a veteran in this sport understands that unless you have a lot of time in the ring, that you do not, and you have not been tested completely on what you're about, and I believe Kimbo has not been tested, and I believe that I have the ability to test him and his weaknesses."

On Kurt Angle's claim that the money wasn't right for a Shamrock/Angle fight in the IFL:

"Well it's just like when I went from MMA into the WWF world. I took less money when I first came in because it wasn't my world and I had to earn after a year and a half, I had to earn that money and for them to be able to pay me the money that the rest of the stars that were there were making because I was worth it. But I had to earn my stripes, even I was good at fighting, I still had to go in the world of professional wrestling and I had to earn my stripes there and it took me a year and a half to do that and I did it. Now, Kurt Angle is coming into a industry where it's real fighting, coming from the entertainment world, and he wants pay like me, like Tito Ortiz, like Randy Couture, like Chuck Liddell. He wants all the pay like that when in fact he hasn't earned that right to get that money, because obviously he has a name but he's coming into this industry unproven. And so therefore there's no reason for him to get that kind of money, not right off the bat. Now he wins a couple of fights and boom, he gets his payday...For him to come over here and want to get paid more than what the top guys get paid here, that's just ludicrous."

Shamrock is dangering himself now. He might need the paydays, but enough is enough

really I think ken doesn't care as much as he use to. I think he just wants to fight and this is the only way he could get another fight.

What athletic commission with a right mind would clear Shamrock for another fight?

Ken, please don't do this anymore, you had a prime opportunity against Berry and he put you down. I'm willing to bet that Kimbo hits alot harder.

I personally believe that the Second part of what ken said about the pay day is VERY TRUE or thats how it should be anyway. Sadly if you can draw a crowd thats all you need to get a good pay day. It really should be about how much you earned it though.
