Ken Shamrock to retire after the Tito fight.

Ken Shamrock , who amassed a 26-11-2 record during a fighting career that started before the first Ultimate Fighting Championship event in 1993, will retire after stepping into the cage for a third time against Tito Ortiz on October 10, the Lassen County News reported Tuesday.

Shamrock joined Royce Gracie as the UFC's first icons. He battled the Brazilian legend twice, losing by choke at UFC I and earning a draw after 36 minutes at UFC V.

Early in his career, Shamrock, later dubbed "The World's Most Dangerous Man" during a stint working for Vince McMahon, split time between the UFC and Pancrase, where he defeated fighters like Masakatsu Funaki, Bas Rutten and Maurice Smith.

Shamrock would become synonymous with UFC-promoted cards, and was regarded as a figurehead for the sport in America before leaving for professional wrestling from 1996-2000.

Following his four-year fighting absence, Shamrock returned in Japan's PRIDE organization, where he fought to a 1-3 record, including a classic bout against rival Don Frye.

It was after the Frye fight that Shamrock returned to the UFC and his first bout was likely his biggest. In November 2002 Shamrock stepped into the cage against then UFC light heavyweight champion Tito Ortiz (Pictures). He'd take a pounding at UFC 40 and the fight was called after 15 minutes.

A win over Kimo Leoplodo (Shamrock's only victory since taking out an overmatched Sam Adkins in August 2001) is the veteran's last triumph in the cage, and he has since lost three fights in a row.

His most recent bout, an early first round stoppage against Ortiz, had Shamrock pining for another opportunity at his longtime nemesis. He has been granted a third fight and it appears regardless of the result on Oct. 10, Shamrock has decided it's time to hang up his gloves.

The 42-year-old Susanville, Calif. resident told the Lassen County News that upon retirement he intends to promote MMA events, continue training fighters out of his famous Lion's Den academy, get in some golf and spend time with his family.

I hope he fights Tito at HW So at least he fights one fight there in his weight. But i wish the last fight was with Royce or Frye.

Ya Royce and Frye are still fighting to

id like to see him go out winning because he really is a good guy no matter what ya say about him.

But he probably will loose.

Oh btw is the fight going to be non ppv? i know dana white is considering it, because the ppv in october is the 14th.

Hes a legend and has done a lot for Pancrease and UFC but I'm tired of seeing him fight ever since returning at UFC 40. He has done nothing but lose all but once since UFC 40 (4 years) and kept demanding rematches against Ortiz. Its pretty predictable who will win this fight, maybe Tito will be on the next UFC Ultimate Knockouts new episode after owning Ken for the third time. Give it a rest Ken, Tito will never give you respect. Plus its good you retired because you were soon to die in the ring anyways.
