UFC Hall of Famer Ken Shamrock hasn’t set foot inside of an MMA cage since November 2010, and since then his primary sources of income have been stiffing promoters and begging his fans to talk to him. In a way, it’s good to see the man making an honest living again.
Earlier this week, Shamrock was spotted at CES working as a bodyguard for rapper/headphone mogul 50 Cent. There was no Ken Shamrock autograph line. No Shamrock-branded iPhone case, thank God. Just an aging tough guy in a shiny suit, keeping his eyes open in case shit jumped off. After the above photo surfaced on twitter, Shammy tweeted to Fitty, “it’s been a pleasure working with you and your team, you are by far one of the classiest gents I have ever worked with. God bless.”
Given the rough characters that 50 tends to associate with, its understandable that he’d want to keep Shamrock nearby. After all, Ken’s the type of guy who will punch first, and figure out your gender later. So kudos to Shamrock for finding a steady paycheck long after washing out of MMA. Lord knows we can’t all open juice bars.
