where have you been for the past oooh i dont know, 6 years? Kens won 3 fights since he returned in 2000.....and didnt fight from 1997 til then. I like Kenny as much as the next guy, but seriously, he needs to take whatever Dignity he has left in him and back out of this fight, before Tito beats it out of him. Of course Dana decides to throw Tito a boatload of money to throw the match

Maybe not great in the Win/Loss column, but Shamrock will put butts in the seats and fans in front of the PPV every time. He's put on some great matches and that is what makes him great. He has all the dignity he needs with how his career has played out. Love him or hate him, you know you'll watch him fight every time.

Oh well. He can do more for the sport then be a punching bag. He should focus on getting new and amazing talent out of the lion's den.

never said I wouldnt watch him, I'm just saying theres a time and a place to hang them up, and its his time. Randy knew right when it was his time....lets hope he doesnt get the itch to come back and fight (granted Id love to see him in action again) once you retire you should stay retired (see Michael Jordan)

for one Randy has not been retired for long so I would not be surprised if he came back within the next two years. As far as Michael Jordan goes: When he came back from retirement he was stillone of the ten or fifteen best players in the league. He had a crappy team who stood around and watched him do all the work while he tried to get them involved. It alsways tickles me when people talking about Joprdan's come back like it was an embarassment. The guy still averaged double figures in the N.B.A against the wiorlds best ballers. Could you do that. There are plenty of guys in the nba that could not. Enough bagging on Jordan coming out of retirement.
Shamrock deserves more respect than he is getting because win or lose he puts people in the seats and he has promoted this sport when no one else did.

well thank you for telling me everything I already know. Dude i dont know why you're turning this personal on me with your "could you do that" comments, I was just making a comparison, chill the **** out. No one is disrespecting Shamrock, were just saying its time to retire, and you're just looking for someone to trash talk with because of it

I dont get it though, why....Ive met alot of MMA fighters in my day and Sham is one of the nicest ones out there. I respect him so much that I want him to bow out gracefully before he gets really hurt
