Frank Shamrock trashes Jake Shields

Did anybody check out this interview yet? Frank goes HARD on Shields...said he was bad for business, style sucks, etc. If only The Legend were still active lol....in his prime shields vs shamrock would be kickass.
Now? not such much...

What you guys think? Shields isn't his only victim...

Frank Shamrock is a true MMA legend. Actually, he's "The Legend."

That's the nickname you get for being the first UFC Light Heavyweight Champion or as Shamrock himself once said "The Michael Jordan of the sport nobody knew about."

Indeed, Shamrock has had unforgettable battles with Bas Rutten, Cung Le, among others, but will be best known for his incredible performance against a young Tito Ortiz at UFC 22. His battles outside the octagon with Ken Shamrock and UFC President Dana White have been just as intriguing.

Agree or disagree with Shamrock's outlook on things, it's universally agreed that he is one of the all-time greats and pioneers of MMA. MMA for him isn't just a profession. It's a lifestyle. Shamrock is not a fighter. He is a martial artist.

He is also an entrepreneur, who has secured a comfortable life without having to step inside the octagon again. Of course, Shamrock has retired numerous times and each time has come back stronger, which is the scary part—for his opponents. Rest assured, Shamrock plans on staying retired.

When he's not commentating for Strikeforce on CBS or Showtime, he's training fighters. When he's not training fighters, he helps kids. And when he's not doing that or being brutally honest about his thoughts on MMA, he's being a good family man.

Shamrock does have quite a bit on his plate, but that's never stopped him from succeeding. From family issues (specifically with adopted brother Ken) to injuries to disputes with the UFC, Frank has been through it all and landed on his feet.

In a sport where many fizzle out after their fighting career is over, Shamrock has built a strong foundation for the future. There's something to be said for that.

The most dominant champion in strikeforce history was bad for business? He is boring Frank? In his fights in Strikeforce and Elite XC he was 7-0 with 5 finishes. He beat three ranked opponents. I guess it would be better to lose a fight to a movie star than use the ground game.

Frank Shamrock is a grown man with braces, who cares what he mumbles.
