Frank to Return in December

Quote:
Frank Shamrock expects to return to competition in the Strikeforce promotion in December, but an opponent has not been named.

"A time line for me to fight is December," Shamrock told MMAWeekly.com content partner Tapout Radio.

While no opponent has been named, Shamrock threw out a few names he'd like to fight: Matt Lindland and rematches with Nick Diaz and Cung Le. But at the end of the day, Shamrock doesn't care who's standing across the cage from him for his next bout.

"If Nick Diaz can stop smoking dope, if whoever else the hell we've got can show up at the weigh-ins, I honestly don't care," stated Shamrock. "I'm interested in promoting the sport of mixed martial arts. Who ever comes in front of me, I'm interested in facing."

Shamrock's accolades include UFC middleweight titleholder, interim King of Pancrase, and WEC light heavyweight champion, as well as Strikeforce middleweight titleholder.

Shamrock rose to the top of the sport by winning the Ultimate Fighting Championship middleweight title at UFC Ultimate Japan 1 in 1997. He defended his belt four times before leaving the promotion in semi-retirement.

He made a full-time return to fighting on March 10, 2006, setting the then U.S. attendance record against Cesar Gracie in San Jose, Calif., in what was California's first sanctioned mixed martial arts event. He's gone 2-3 since his official return losing his last two outings, to Cung Le and Nick Diaz.
I hope he comes back with full force. He's a good fighter and very exciting. Have always been a fan of his.

Meh. He's become pretty much irrelevant due to his innactivity, in conjunction with his most recent two losses.

I'll happily watch all his fights, but it doesn't get me excited very much.

I'm happy he is coming back, though it doesn't mean a whole lot for the rankings or will have any sort of impact on the sport itself.

I want to see him fight Anderson(no clue why).
