They only reason they made Shamrock/Ortiz 3 is because a bunch of people were moaning that Herb Dean stopped the fight too soon.

Anyways, Dana is right about EXC milking Kimbo for everything he's worth. They are feeding Kimbo nothing but guys with losing records.

1. Bo Cantrell- Before he fought Kimbo he lost 4 fights in a row.

2. Tank Abbott- Before he fought Kimbo he has lost 7 of his last 8 fights.

3. James Thompson- Is a step up the ladder for Kimbo but the only reason EXC made this happen is because James lost 6 of his last 8 fights. Thompson's last fight he was KO'ed by Rogers yet somehow he got to be in the main event while Rogers fought on the prelims!

4. Ken Shamrock- Well his record speaks for itself. Since he cameback to the sport back in 2000 he has lost 8 of his last 11 fights. His wins are against three tomatoe cans: Alexander Otsuka, Kimo, and Sam Adkins. Now you could make the argument that he lost to big name fighters like Tito Ortiz x3, Rich Franklin, Don Frye, and Kazushi Sakuraba. But then there is Robert Berry. Berry is virtually a nobody and he destroyed Ken in the same fashion as the big name fighters. A fight with Ken doesn't do Kimbo any good if he wants to advance.

Now I'm not saying Kimbo should be fighting people like Mark Hunt or Josh Barnett but he should be fighting somebody that is...well...legitament. Sombody whose record isn't riddled with loses. That's what made a fight with Brett Rogers compelling. Rogers isn't the greatest MMA fighter in the world but he is solid. A win over him would have made Kimbo a little more credibile.

My issue with the interview was not the expletives themselves I know Dana needs to swear to keep up his streetcred. I just love how the in the first sentence the expletives were ***** out only to be followed up with the required ****er in the next.

Well, the fights with Fujita and Frye are questionable losses. Ken would have beaten Fujita if his heart or whatever didn't mess up, and the decision with Frye could have went his way. But a L is a L

Jared Shaw still works for Pro Elite and has been doing a lot of promotion for the fight.

How can you use Mark Hunt and Josh Barnett in the same sentence? Hunt is exactly the kind of guy Kimbo should be fighting. He's a guy with limited skills and for some unknown reason a descent name in the sport.

Maybe that moron Ken Shamrock will expose Kimbo and he'll go back to fighting guys at the local Burger King.
ahahahahahah thats hilarios, great interview, I know he swears alot and hes trying to run a buissiness, but what he is saying is acually true, I dont care if he swears hes down to earth and has a personality, at least hes not a complete F*cking goon like gary shaw

*edit for a second I thought he meant if ken wins he can go back to fighting at burgur king, as in that is a step up from elite xc hahaha

Dana makes me laugh at times people slate him for cussing but apart from the Fedor slating he does keep it real.
