Steroids in MMA
Which MMA Fighter Will Test Positive For Steroids Next?

Famous Last Words: Ken Shamrock Edition

Ken Shamrock to Sherdog:

“[T]he Kimbo Slice thing came up and we said, ‘Wow, this is the perfect fight for me, man. You can’t gift wrap one better than this’…Honestly, I think I can test him anywhere. He’s got big, heavy hands. Everyone says he punches hard and he probably does. But again, he doesn’t punch properly, in my opinion. He swings his hands, he moves his body back and forth trying to get as much power as he can, but there’s really no snap behind it. You can usually see the punches coming. I’m going to do what I need to do. If it goes to the ground, I’ll probably break his leg. I mean, no question. I will break his leg. If he gives it to me, I’m going to break it.”

The bad news is, Ken has proven multiple times that he doesn’t need to be punched “properly” to briefly lose consciousness. A firm tap will do. Picture a police officer knocking on a door — that’s about the force required to knock out Ken Shamrock. Bonus: Check out this video from earlier this year of Ken and some IFL fighters going over a hypothetical matchup between him and Kimbo.

anyone else find it pretty bizarre the ifl even bothered making this promo? it's not like they were pumping that fight, it's not like they could have made that fight if they wanted to, and at the time there were zero rumors of sending ken over to elite xc. it's like they wanted to promote their own show where neither ken and kimbo were fighting in a really pointless way

Ken will try to be smart ass and prove that he still has some power in his hands and will lose by 1st round KO.

it would be awesome if he submits him the same way mir submitted lesnar

he "can't" take a punch or he " won't" take a punch? much of EliteXC's survival depends on Kimbo winning his next few.......

This is going to end like all of Ken's other matches....
He will come out and get punched once.... fall down get hit again and it will be over.
He can win but he wont. Its sad since I watched Ken from the first UFC till now and I just dont think he can take a punch anymore. I hope he wins I really do but this is going to end bad for Ken.

everyone expects shamrock to lose, but i would love to see him submit slice and make him take back "tappin out is for bitches". but at the same time, i'm not gonna hold my breath for it.
