Ken "the world's most dangerous man" Shamrock

Ken is the older stepbrother of Frank Shamrock. He is the 2nd ever king of pancrase. Ken was recently admited in the UFC hall of fame along with Royce Gracie and a number of other fighters.

Ken has fought many hard battles, but the most memorable ones are against Royce Graci in the early UFCs. He's also fought Bas Rutten.

He is 6'1 (1.85 meters) and 235 lbs (107 kilos).

His all time pro MMA record is 26 - 9 - 2 (Win - Loss - Draw)

World's most dangerous man right? Hmmm, maybe back in the early UFC's but at UFC 40 at Vendetta Tito was on top of his game and destroyed Ken that night, he has bumps on top of bumps his face was a mess. He had a good comback against Kimo but proved yet again that age is getting to him after losing to Rich Franklin??? At the Ultimate Fighter finale. He has an impressive record but I'd rather watch his earlier fights especially that war he had with Royce, man that was bad.

Respect, Ken.

yeah, nicknames never go away. To this day Mark Kerr is still "the smashing machine" for instance.

If you step into a ring with only the knowledge you got from training and no reall Streetfighting skills against people who have both... Most likely you'll get you're nuts cracked the first time.
Especially if you see you're Martial Arts as a way of life.

What I mean is, all the fighters learned their lesson [take a look a the way they defend their face: Clsed guard is long gone: you don't stand with your hands next to your cheeks(boxing) all the time anymore, or next to your side(karate), or in front of you (thay) )

Kerr would get his ass kicked too by some on the fighters of today because they have one advantage: lessstyle than the sport thought them, grappling skills and mean streetfighting skills. I mean, who would have thought that a martial artist would ever kick an opponent in the face (head) while his opponent was lying on the ground.

Untill Free fight that was unthinkable.

LOL @ worlds most dangerous man, since having that nickname who has he beaten as i cant remeber how long he has had that name. In the super fight re-match against Dan Severn which he lost by decision he was called the rock. In recent times he hasnt beaten anybody who is at the top of their game. And as mentioned before Tito handed his ass on a plate to him.

When he fought Tito he seemed to have cut a little more weight than he could afford to, Not having a go at Ken as he is one of the pioneers of our sport but i thought Ken was a bit out of his depth at UFC 40. Wish Ken was in his prime now all the good fighters are here, imo when Ken was in his prime there wasnt the calibre of fighter around like they are now, i think he would be much better if he could grow with the sport just like Frank did we might have seen a more dangerous Mr. K. Shamrock.
Got to respect a man that has been competing from UFC 1 to present day, very few fighters can say that.

Beat Bas twice, not bad, but Tito is huge for a 205, probably strongest at that weight, Ken is over the hill, Tito will kill him after he kills forrest

I agree with Steve... well he has nothing to gain more than the cash and some revenge for the smacktalk. But it will happen since they both are TUF coaches this season.
