What? Really? that is surprising. Honestly, I really didn't know that Lion's Den was still training top level fighters.

Bader is the only one of the three that I give a shit about, so hopefully he does well.

However from what I have read and seen in interviews and speeches given by ken he has been trough a dramatic change in his out look on fighting and teaching since his last fight with tito. None the less it will be interesting to see how this will effect the camp.

This is the gym they went to. It's Lions Den but Ken doesn't seem to have much to do with the day to day operations or coaching. It looks like a really nice facility actually.

Didnt someone throw this out as a joke last week?? Lol.. Lions Den.

Well it seems Scott Peterson owns this gym. I wonder if Ken sold lions Den or something?? Or if this is a different Lions Den.?

Anyway
good luck to them.

hmmmm seems the one they went to has nothing do do with Shamrock..... it just opened in July 2008.
so these guys are getting in on the ground floor of a new team from the looks of it.
that at least sounds more honest than leaving they guys who made you who you are to be cherry picked; making the choice to start your own path..... i'm okay with that.

Slamcock has a little shameless behaviour in the pastSlamcock has a little shameless behaviour in the past
Ken Shamrock Has NO involvement with this gym. Ken doesn't even own the Lion's Den.

There is no way these guys would choose to train with Ken. He is the laughing stock of MMA.

The Lion's Den is legit. They have some outstanding coaches, great facility and now some top tiered fighters to join their Olympic wrestlers

I don't actually think Ken runs this Lion Den. It could be an affiliate though.

I think it's cool, Ken or not, I have always been a big fan of the Lion's Den.

I haven't heard from the Lions Den since the IFL days. I think they must know what they are doing, I would hope that they have their best interest at heart. It'll be interesting to see how they all perform after the move.

Man its going to be scary when they become the 2nd, 3rd and 4th most dangerous men in the world. Gonna be seeing a lot of broken ankles in the UFC after ken is done training these guys.

sounds like there are a lot of top class wrestlers there, and that it would be a great place to train on the ground, but thats what they already do... thats why i dont get it.
