Yeah he's got a big contract. An MMA fighter(cesar) that Frank already beat started the organization. I kinda think it was dumb for a starting promotion to have that big of contracts but I guess his pockets are pretty deep. The main reason Frank has stated he doesnt want to fight for the UFC is because he thinks MMA should be all about the fighters and not this huge umbrella like UFC has over its fighters.

Yeah, I was surprised that a brand new organization was giving out a 7 figure contract, I mean who has Frank Shamrock fought lately? ………… exactly, but he is one of the biggest names in MMA and I guess if they want to create a buzz to get there organization of the ground why not take a chance with a big name.

Regarding Frank.... his last fight was against Cesar Gracie back in March which he won via KO. Gracie is the one that started the promotion Frank signed onto as well. Before that fight Frank hadnt fought since 2003 and he fought Tito back in '99. I guess we'll have to wait and see if Frank still has it in his next bout.

A win against Vitor Belfort is impressive no matter how you get it, so is beating Forest Griffin with a injured back and knee and so is beating Ken twice in under 3 and a half minutes. Maybe when he beats Chuck he will finally get the credit he deserves.

Frank Vs. Tito

Frank still has a very good chance if he has been training and evolving, though he was always pretty well rounded.

Even if hes has been training, the question is "Has he been training as intensely as Tito?" Why would he? He only had the one fight against Cesar Gracie. Other than that he's been inactive.

Frank is a phenomenal fighter. I would not count him out, and if the fight was six months away, I'd bet on him.
