If the fighter is in trouble they can grab the ropes and have the match restarted as to avoid tapping out.

It's sorta like mma with a thousand rules!

Seriously people...What has he done in mma?

Lets take a quick look.....
UFC 1 he beats Patrick Smith and loses to Royce
UFC 3 he beats Leninger and then can't continue
UFC 5 he fights Royce to a draw (Someone half his size)
UFC 6 he beats Severn for the Superfight (That was not bad)
UFC 7 he fights Oleg to a draw
UFC 8 he beats a one dimensional Kimo. (Who he later beats again)
UFC 9 he dances with Severn and loses his Superfight title
Ultimate '96 he beats Johnston and can't continue.....again!
Later he gases and loses to Fujita
He gets pounded by Don Frye
He gets dismantled by Ortiz
He gets KO'd by Franklin
He gets KO'd by Sakuraba
He gets beat by Ortiz....Again!

The guy has NEVER won a tournament in the UFC.

Where does his legend come in at??
People shiver in fear when they hear "The worlds most dangerous man"
That was a title that HE GAVE HIMSELF!!!

Ask Sakuraba if he's the Worlds most dangerous man.

Ken Shamrock = Mike Tyson....NO!!!
Try Ken Shamrock = Harold Howard or maybe Joe Son
But that's about it.

To be honest...I'm NOT a Shamrock hater!!!
I was actually hoping that he would beat Tito.
But the fact is he has a losing mma record!
Where's the legend in that???

With that kind of record....I guess they should make Tiki a legend as well!
I agree 1000% He really and truly hasnt done much, he never was that good.
As we all know this whole thing is about money, Ken Shamrock is very well known, he is easy to market so that is why they call him a "legend" but I am with you man, I disagree.

i cant say i agree it really gets under my skin when you people make out he is a rubbish fighter just cos he has lost a few fights doesnt meen he is washed up or a medoka fighter just recap his last fights and how he lost and to be fair he has not lost to eny rubbish fighters has he all of them have been world class. shamrock has been really unlucky in his last few fights LETS RECAP

he came back after a long absence to fight tito who at the time was the best 205 in the ufc not only did shamrock have ring rust agenst him but he olso has a torn acl he had lost that fight before it started he should have bottled up his pride and prosponed maybe have had a warm up fight so that loss was his fault

then he fights franklin and SLIPS TWICE allowing franklin to take advantage i am not to sure weather or not franklin would have beat him had he not slipped shamrock seemed to be the agresser but we will never know.thwn franklin went on to become to best middleweight in the ufc

then he lost to tito agein and to be blunt HE WAS SQREWD usually when a fighter is in trouble the ref will say get out of tere or ill stop it givin the fighter a chance HERB DEAD DIDNT DO THIS HE NEVER GAVE SHAMMY A CHANCE TO RECOVER.

it does my head in when shamrock losses and he is called crap but when royce loses he is still the greatest shamrock has plenty of fight left in him and is not as bad of a fighter as it may seem dont forget randy lost his fair share of fights in the heavyweight div then went on to beat chuck

GIVE SHAMROCK SOME RESPECT AND DONT COUNT HIM OUT JUST YET HE MAY BE DOWN BUT HE ISNT OUT

The reason Shamrock is a "legend" is because he is still around and has stuck it out since the beginning. The way I see it, if Shamrock never fought in the UFC or in MMA, it wouldn't be were it is today. Althought he didn't do so well in the first UFC, he did bring in some credibility to the UFC at that time.

Shamrock is undeserving of his "legandary" staus, he hasn't done anything against anyone to prove he's a legand, and people who wanna give him credit for being an evolving fighter back then, well what the hell is he doing now, he's to stubborn to realize he needs to train differently to surrvive in the ufc nowadays, so his evolving status is also weak, money is what dude is after he was horrible on TUF, i think his fighters actually were worse off having him "coach" them if you want to call it that, he needs to retire because he's not helping the sport, the lion's den is weak, his style is weak, his rep is weak, and just cause he has been around since day one doesn't make him a legand, big john mcarthy is a bigger legit legand than ken, i agree with tito he's the world most dangerous girl

Shamrock's a good fighter don't get me wrong, and there is a small comparison in his up and down fight record. But i'd have to disagree with his fighting itself. Of course boxing and MMA are WAY different but there is still things that resemble themselves. Yes Tyson went out and threw everything he got untill he became old and washed up, you'll see he gives up and makes excuses. Shamrock makes excuses about the same, but does not give up. The first tito fight he got his butt kicked and was still wanting more. Shamrock's got more heart then 10 tysons.

lol here you go again with another Ken Shamrock Essay. Franklin clearly beat him no excuse .The second fight with Tito...plz he did an easy double leg slam in the begining of the fight and hit straight elbows in his face it was a bad call only because i wanted to see Ken out cold for sure so he knew that he lost. he was waxed Bitc* slapped pimp smacked SPANKED beatdown stepped owned tooled humbled,Tito knocked his hair Piss blonde.It's over and im glad Tito can move on to newer and better things.

I still respect ken and i still think hes kind of funny but he is becoming a joke and needs to get out.
