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

Ken Shamrock Will Continue to Work Off His Zuffa Debt October 16 When He Takes On Johnathan Ivey

(How much are you paying me for this video again and what’s fetish porn?)

Well it looks like Ken Shamrock is determined to free himself from the $175,000 financial debt he owes the UFC and WEC parent company, Zuffa LLC.

According to MMAFighting, the 46-year-old UFC Hall-of-Famer, who unsuccessfully tried to sue the UFC earlier this year and now must pay the company’s $175,000 in lawyers fees will take on Johnathan Ivey under the USA MMA banner October 16 in Lafayette, Louisiana.

Perhaps Shamrock (27-14-2), who only has one win in the past five years, is thinking statistics will be on his side for this one.

Ivey is 29-42 in 71 outings and has lost to every UFC and PRIDE fighter he has ever faced including Dan Severn, Jeremy Horn, Travis Wiuff, Ben Rothwell,  Sam Hoger, Jake O’Brien, Ricco Rodriguez, and most recently, Sean McCorkle.

The paycheck, which will most likely be made out to Zuffa, will be "The World’s Most Dangerous Man’s" second one he has earned for the UFC this year.

In his most recent outing, he lost via first round leg kick TKO to Pedro Rizzo while fighting for the upstart Australian Impact FC promotion in July. He is the only fighter to date who has been paid in full for his services to the promotion.

For those who are unfamiliar with the story of Ken suing the UFC, Shamrock launched the ill-fated suit against Zuffa last year, claiming that he was contracted to a second fight with the UFC to rematch Tito Ortiz after losing their third showdown in 2006. After that show, which by the "Ortiz vs. Shamrock 3: The Final Chapter" name alone indicated there likely wouldn’t be another meeting between the two, Shamrock promptly announced his retirement.

When he revealed two years later that he had his fingers crossed behind his back when he said he was retiring, the UFC was no longer interested in having him on their roster, (which is no surprise considering he was 44 at the time and was 1-6 in his last seven fights) which prompted Ken Sham to sue.

Is it just me or does this pic remind any of you of that Joe Rogan comedy skit where two dudes are lifting in one of their parents basements?

Damn, I never knew what a pot cave was, or even thought to want to know....pretty sweeet tho.

@Ken Shamrock's sad, sad life

Can't Zuffa let him off the hook. He did do a lot for the UFC and he can't pay that shit! Guy needs to eat, and his kids, so just leave him be.

I thought Ken had aspirations of working with poor underprivileged kids in Guatemala or some place like that? Give Shammy some money so he can start helping these keeeids!

I no-shit cant think of one person Ken has beat. When I noticed his record, I had no idea he had 27 victories.

At least he's super smart. Now that his career is winding down he can finally put that brain he saved to good use and start splitting atoms.

And I'll watch it.... anxiously waiting.... anxiously hoping.... anxiously reliving the good ol' times for my newbie buddies during his walk in and intro.... and then I'm sure I'll wonder why instead of shooting in and looking for the choke or heel hook, he stood and tried to box only to be laid out by a guy who never dreamed of reaching the standard Ken set for so many others.

God Bless You, Ken Shamrock....

Atta boy Ken!....go get'em!
......wait why don't you just stop steroids and use your roid money to pay back the UFC? wait,.... get your wife to take out a huge life insurance policy out on you and then lift an outrageous amount of weight without a wait move to Tennesee and build a house over a cave,....

Is there any other way to go out Clyde? What is funny is that Ken could beat up 99 out of 100 CP users and we give him a hard time. He is the Brett Favre of MMA. He will probably die in the ring. Sucks but I just had to add MMA to my online word checker. No more underline red squiggly line for me.

Go get em Shammy. The man is just like the rest of us. Slaving away every day to pay off a debt he may never see the end of before retiring into obscurity with no savings or pension and living homeless on the street, smelling of urine and ranting incoherently about how great he used to be.

So you're saying there's a chance?

Good to hear Ken is trying to get things squared away.

Only 175 more fights like this one and Ken will be all paid off, well as long as there is no interest on that owed money.

You are correct, sir. Thanks for lookin' out. Fixed.

I love Shamrock's career updates. It's like a train accident; so terrible you want to pretend it's not happening but you can't... look... away... and he's 1-6 in 7, right?
