Well as anyone here knows im a MMA lover, fan, and a mma fighter, but before this i had another hobby, making music.

I make music with keyboards, synths, computer, turntables etc etc, pure electronic no live instruments but i have a library of samples ranging from guitar to piano to orchasrta sounds so despite thee fact i don't have a guitar i could still make a song with one. Actually i do have a guitar a "gibson" but i never really play it.

Anyway Ken retired last night and for me a fan i was truly saddened, i mean lets face it, he CANNOT continue he is just too old, but i remember growing up watching him on UFC 1. So for me watching ken walk out of the octagon for the last time it was like a peice of me was going with him.

Anyway enough of the drama, he has done so much for the sport i thought maybe i would so something in return so there for i made a little tribute song for him that i want to share with you all. Its short, sweet and to the point with only 2:00 of playing time, maybe someday i can really put some good time into it and make something that will never go away so we can all remember the legend. So here it is, please let me know what you think.

I was also very saddened by Ken Shamrock retiring. You guys might think its dumb or whatever but it almost brought a tear to my eye, hell, infact it pretty much did.


Steve-d, I'm liking the beat to it. Also Ken speaking is pretty cool. Thanks alot for the song.

Only thing I don't get is though, did Tito really have to wear that shirt after him and Ken made up and appologized? For ****s sake seriously....One less plug for Punishment Athletics or whatever it was isn't going to hurt his money.
i hear ya and agree, but tito will be tito and the shirt thing is part of his act, like he said, saorry for the antics its part of my act.

Tito is just the type to make MMA like WWF, sad but true.

Ya, Tito is all about causing controversy and getting viewers in. In a way it's good for the ratings for however long he is on the TV. He bashes Ken Shamrock about him going to wrestling, well wake the **** up asshole! You went to TNA and special referee'd two matches...Whatever though I'll stop.


Once again, thanks for the song.
LOL your welcome and yah as long as tito and ken are not fighting we should calm down, no need to go on yelling at tito. Try to be the better person like ken was..

That video is badass, hes early fights should be enough to consider him a legend. He would make those guys scream when he put those locks on those guys. If anyone doesnt believe hes a legend just watch the Bas fight he was killer in that fight. You can see were frank shamrock got some of his skills.
well i think it all comes down to NEW fans, and YOUNg fans who like stuff like tito flipping people off. And they think its cool to treat a legend like he is trash.

Thats what i think, i think any oldschool MMA fan can appreciate shammy.

Thanks for starting this thread Steve-d. Part of what attracted me to this sport in the first place was the martial arts style respect for your opponent, your teachers/trainers, and the fans.

I really dislike the drama/disrespect. I don't need that to make me want to watch the fights. I get revvvved up all on my own when a ppv is coming up.

There is no excuse for the way some have treated Ken. People were booing when he stepped into the octagon for the last time, it made me feel really bad.
yeah, however helooked really happy to be entering the octagon one last time and didnt seem to care about the boo's, that made me feel better.

But i do agree, he should not get boo'ed at all.
