The last word

Dana doesn't want Frank in the UFC. And we all know Dana has the final word. Frank has pissed Dana off, and Dana has taken it further by calling him a second rate fighter.

Frank Shamrock Interview - Ironlife.com

I would like to see Frank fight in the UFC, and from a business standpoint the UFC should like to see this as well. But I don't think it's going to happen.

I loive frank shamrock so i may be a little bit biased. But i believe shamrock is still one of the top 185 lbs fighters in the world. He is a very intelligent striker, with great submissions and good ground game, i believe he could have a chance at taking out silva, but he would have a much smaller chance beating franklin, who would be larger and stronger, i would still pay to see both fights

Baroni may not be an absolute world class MW, but considering that Frank was injured, and looked a bit rusty(and still kicked ass). With a few more warm up fights he could be in top shape. He could do very well if you ask me.

It will never happen! Its simple math really!

Dana's hateful Grude + Frank's Massive Ego = One Weakass UFC middleweight division!

You forget that this isn't just some brutal sport where everyones out to kill each other. Its much more like a game of physical chess.-looney liam

World class wrestlers dont always translate well to MMA. Why dont you ask Eldari Kurtanidze how mma worked out for him. Baroni is a joke, anyone whose half way decent could work his ass. Igor is probably the only one Ill give you but thats more on potential then anything and we all know how far potential will get you in MMA.

Kevin Jackson MMA skills weren't bad in fact he was considered pretty hot stuff till Frank put him in an armbar after about 10 secs. To beat up on Baroni usually is not that impressive. To beat up on Baroni being unable to shoot on him is impressive. Shamrock beat a pretty good stand up fighter for the most part standing and only won by submission because Baroni didn't want to stay standing anymore. Igor had a lot of potential but it was like he was a raw piece of clay. The guy had a lot of skills when he faced Shamrock and was undeafeted until Frank ended his career with that slam.

For UFC 77....

For UFC 77 3 of my friends got fake IDs so they can come and watch it for free in a bar... xD none of them even drink.

does this make my friends sad 19 year olds? or hardcore mma fans? or just cheap as hell?

all of the above

but then again me and my boys had fake id's since 18

The most solid advice I can give to anyone who fights BJ Penn is...do not motivate the guy. Lets face it, BJ although talented, is naturally lazy. Your job is to NOT convince him to step on that treadmill.
