the lions den has not done well in the last few years but a few i can name off the top of my head is (correct me if im wrong)

Tra Telligman, Mikey Benett, Guy Mezner (retired but good in his day). I think even Travis Lutter is a part of the dalles chapter of the lions den.

people say either the world will end at 2012 or the aliens will finnally come back to us.....


i hope not cuz im writing a sci fi novel

Well, the Den is gone now, but they used to be the premier stable of fighters in the late 90's.

Pete Williams
Tra Telligman
Frank Shamrock
Ken Shamrock
Jerry Bohlander
Guy Mezger
Vernon White

These were all very good fighters. Mezger & Frank being the best(Though Frank became so much better when he trained with TK & Mo Smith(The Alliance)). Mezger was just a really good fighter, who was a great striker. When he had to, Mezger could work on the ground as well. Mezger got some screwy decisions against Sakuraba, Arona, Shoji, & Rogerio Nogueira, and held his own(And was winning at one point) against Liddell & Wanderlei Silva.

Ken Shamrock may be old, and broken down nowadays, but he was once a really good fighter. The Lions Den produced some really good fighters as well. These are 2 things that often get ignored.

Really? I didn't know that. I heard that Ken was thinking about getting some new guys, and making them fight in small shows in Reno, but nothing concrete. It'd be great if Ken was serious about becoming a teacher again. He just needs to get some other, well versed coaches to help him out.

Any news about Ken's IFL team? Is it going to be his new Den? I heard Vernon White was going to be on the team.

Lutter & Prangley were 2 other Den members, and former Den training partners. Prangley went to AKA, and Lutter's doing his own thing.

The lions den is definately still going. They mainly fight in King of the Cage every year. Vernon Whyte is their main boy at the moment.
