"respect Shamrock"
 
Ken Shamrock truely is a living legend in the world of mixed martial arts and a favorite of MMA fans around the world. Ken Shamrock has lived the life of a martial arts warrior and continues to do so as well as passing on his undoubted skills by the way of his training camp, THE LIONS DEN.
Since the very beginning of The Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Ken Shamrock has been involved. In UFC 1 - The Beginning he won with a heel hook submission against Patrick Smith and was eventually defeated by brazilian jiu jitsu supremo Royce Grace by the way of a rear naked choke.
SHAMROCK ... the name says it all. Along with Royce Gracie and Dan Severn, Ken Shamrock was one of the original pioneers of mixed martial arts. At a time when fighters were only skilled in one art, Shamrock was a hybrid fighter, mixing strong grappling and striking techniques. During his reign as Superfight Champion in the Ultimate Fighting Championships, Shamrock defeated an impressive list of fighters, including Kimo, Severn, and Oleg Taktarov.

Ken Shamrock has fought around the world in The Ultimate Fighting Championship, Pride Fighting as well as being a popular figure in the WWE where he was billed as "The world's most dangerous man", a nickname that has followed him back into the MMA world.


Ken is primarily a submission fighter although is a well rounded MMA fighter. His ferocious tenacity is what drives him on in his fights and keep his legion of fans on the edge of their seats.

When the worlds most dangerous man is looking you square in the eyes across the octagon then you had better be ready for a war. Ken Shamrock is a legend and he isn't going anywhere just yet.

you do have to give the man credit while he might not have as much gas in the tank he is sticking it when talent is alot younger and very good and getting better. so you have to at least respect him for sticking around. Lets all at least see what happens with Ortiz before we further judge the man

It doesn't matter what happens with Tito...even if Tito knocks him out he still can't be defamed....the man has done way more for MMA then Tito

Respect Shamrock? I used to but not anymore.

He used to be a great fighter but after his first match with Tito his attitude and personality changed and so did his fighting. Now he can't win a single match except against Kimo who arguebly also isn't as good as he used to be either.

You do have to respect they guy for being a pioneer and for having balls. even though I can't stand Shamrock I respect him along with every single MMA fighter. But I think you may be mistaken about Ken and Gracie, to the best of my knowledge the superfight between the two was a draw, Royce Gracie was undefeated in the UFC until his recent loss to Matt Hughs.

I know, that was his only recent win. I just said Kimo is washed up as well.

He is past his prime. I RESPECT Shamrock and everything he has done for this sport. He is the reason I watch UFC and other MMA.

Kimo sucks

I used to think Ken was awesome, until he went to the wwf? I was like, "what the heck". After that, i could care less.
Then seeing him as a teach (term used loosely) on Ultimate Fighter, well, just made be believe heís not that great after all.
He will go down in their hall of fame, and after Tito destroys him, thatís when he should retire.
