Ive never really liked Ken but I still think hes done alot to help make the sport more popular. His feud with Tito I would say probably brought in more fans to the UFC then any other rivalry ever. I really hope he doesnt come back to fight though. I understand the warrior spirit but his knees are terrible now and I dont want to see another legend like Sakuraba running around only able to beat scrubs and just getting stomped by any young talent. Say it with me 3 times Ken, I am not Randy Couture, I am not Randy Couture, I am not Randy Couture.

One of the greatest - I mean he's in the UFC Hall of Fame. But, I seriously want him to sit in the audience instead of stand in the Octagon. He's seriously diminishing his legacy coming off of all those brutal losses, and he's well beyond his prime. It would be different if he was fighting guys his own age, but then again he lost to Don Frye a while back. Unless his next fight is against Frank Shamrock, I wish that he would retire and continue to train others to be good fighters.

My favorite fighters of all time:

Randy Couture
Ken Shamrock
Rickson Gracie
Matt Hughes
Rampage Jackson
Chuck Liddell
Fedor Emelianenko

I give Ken the up most respect. Without Ken, who knows, maybe the UFC would not be what it is today, or maybe there would be no UFC. Ken has transcended a sport into the mainstream, and for that I commend him.

His first bout against Tito was the start of a revolution. GO KENNNY!

OH SHI-

Channers in my mmaforum?

He could never beat Royce, even when he had a 50+lbs advantage.

UFC fan: Interested in watching someone get their ass beat, begins 'booing' if the fighters aren't entertaining his/her primitive brain.

MMA fan: Interested in technique, attentively watches the fight, MMA savvy, respects the fighters.
