Get Some Perspective: Ken Shamrock’s Last Victory

(Props: MMA Scraps)

The year was 2004. Britney Spears was still skinny and childless. “Deadwood” had just premiered on HBO. Janet Jackson sparked controversy by showing the world her wonderful, glorious nipple during the Super Bowl XXXVIII halftime show. It was a different time, a simpler time.

It was also the last time Ken Shamrock’s hand was raised in MMA victory, after a TKO via knee 1:26 into round one against Kimo Leopoldo at UFC 48: Payback. On the same fight card, Frank Mir broke Tim Sylvia‘s arm, and a little-known fighter by the name of Georges St. Pierre knocked out Jay Hieron on the undercard.

Now here we are, four years (and, for Shamrock, five straight losses) later, and “The World’s Most Dangerous Man” is preparing to headline a fight on CBS against Kimbo Slice, a former backyard brawler now trained by Bas Rutten. If that’s possible, just imagine where we’ll be four years from now. The world is indeed a strange and inscrutable place.

Ken Shamrock was and IS an Ass-kicker. And Britney Spears has awesome tits.

Strike that... Shamrock by Beard-Lock.

I don't mind Kimbo.

I don't like what EXC is doing with Kimbo.

I hope Shamrock wins by uppercut to the beard. That would be a Win - Win - Win. Win for Shamrock to end his career on a high note. Win that EXC has to either shape up or go out of business. Win that Kimbo's beard is no longer a controversy.

Doesn't Frank Shamrock do commentary for EXC?

You guys weren't smart enough to cut the bullshit out at the beginning? You morons.

better than you:

See the title...get a little perspective. Shamrock is not longer a true MMA fighter...he's a true MMA grandpa.

Ken Shamrock will always be considered an incredible fighter and a pioneer of the sport. The worlds most dangerous man he is no longer, but i think everyone would admit that when he gets knocked out, the fight gets called, and he jumps up and cries about it is a spectacle that makes for some good TV. Commentators are always a little confused, then see the replay, and admit that he was KTFO. It's a great mess. But anyway, Shamrock by leglock in the first round.

Hey dick,

Some people don't like dark nipples. I on the other hand would enjoy biting Janet's nipple as though it were a Raisenette atop a glorious mound of chocolate mousse!
