Ken Shamrock vs Bobby Lashley at Roy Jones' March Madness

http://www.bloodyelbow.com/2009/3/2/...-exclusive-ken

Quote:
Sources close to Bloody Elbow can exclusively confirm that the heretofore unnamed opponent of former WWE superstar Bobby Lashley set to square off at Roy Jones Jr.'s mixed boxing and MMA event known as "March Badness" is none other than Ken Shamrock.

Shamrock is coming off a recent submission victory over Ross Clifton at the inaugural Wargods event on February 13, 2009. Lashley is coming off of his professional MMA debut, stopping Joshua Franklin at a Mixed Fighting Alliance event on January 13, 2008. The bout will be contested at heavyweight.

The Lashley vs. Shamrock bout is part of an hybrid boxing-mixed martial arts card being assembled and promoted by former Ring Magazine pound-for-pound greatest boxer alive in Roy Jones, Jr. Jones's promotional company, Square Ring Promotions, Inc., has scheduled the event to take place at the Pensacola Civic Center in Pensacola, Florida and will be broadcast live on pay-per-view. According to published reports, a press conference is scheduled for Feb. 11 to formally announce the event. The event itself is scheduled for March 21st.

Wow, unless Ken pulls off a miracle leg lock, he is going to get absolutely wrecked. Lashley is a monster and Ken doesn't really have a lot more skills than Lashley except perhaps a slight edge in technical boxing and leg submissions. I predict Ken getes GnP'ed out.

Lashley is going to kill Shammy. Is Earl Hebner going to be reffing?

Oh damn, Ken is gonna get shamROCKED!!!

It's pretty funny when the man who's last name becomes synonymous with being old and getting brutally beaten by a younger fighter, steps up to further advance the nickname.

ken, ken, ken... why oh why must you take a fight like this, if you win you prove nothing by beating a rookie, and if you lose which you will, you get your ass HANDED to you by a guy who is a walking muscle basically and being beaten by a guy who hasn't even had 3 fights in his career yet is bad.

I see bad things happening for kenny, that or an "injury" close to fight time. lashley is very green but this is old man shamrock we are talking about.

Wow, this is proper pro wrestling style, older star vet puts over the young prospect.

This is going to be a tough one for Ken, Lashley is going to be so much more physical.

Fedor fights I want to see..

Fedor vs. Josh Barnett
Fedor vs. Randy Couture
Fedor vs. Tim Sylvia - DEMOLISHED
Fedor vs. Andrei Arlovski - DEMOLISHED

hmmmmm, i wonder how many become reality..

And let's face it, Ken was never very good in the first place. I think he has more losses than wins in the UFC, either that or close to it. I've seen him bitch about one thing or another at the end of a fight way more than I have ever seen him with his hand raised in victory.

Dammit Roy, fighting Omar Sheika, really? I mean I guess you can't go out like you did against Cal.

I strongly disagree, I think he was excellent in his prime. Some 13 years ago.

I don't see why Ken is even trying anymore. It would be excellent for him to leg lock Lashley.
