Poll: At First Glance, Would You Make the Same Mistake Ken Shamrock Did?

Oh geez, you guys. You know how we informed you the other day that Ken Shamrock was involved in a little mall skirmish that ended in him striking a woman he thought was a man? If so, do you remember how all the reports said she was HEAVYSET woman, making sure to emphasize the term by placing it in all capital letters?

Well, as things are apt to do in the life of Ken Shamrock, this story has recently taken a turn from typically bizarre/sad to the even more bizarre and borderline morbid. The above photo of Shamrock’s alleged attacker, all 120 pounds of her, was released today, and it suddenly has us questioning the legitimacy of Shamrock’s story. We mean, just look at her; not even Peter Griffin could make that mistake.

Her name is Melinda Garcia, and according to her, things went down WAY differently with “The World’s Most Dangerous Man Who is Definitely a Man” than what was originally reported. As TMZ reports:

Her name is Melinda Garcia … she weighs 120 pounds … and tells TMZ there’s NO WAY Shamrock could’ve confused her for a man. In fact, she claims Ken is straight up LYING about the fight.

Garcia claims it’s all BS … claiming Shamrock didn’t actually break up the original fight, but rather screamed at her to do it … which she did. Garcia claims Shamrock began to yell at her for not stopping the fight sooner … and then snapped and PUNCHED her in the face.

Garcia says her mom ran over to intervene … and Shamrock punched her too. Soon after the alleged girl-punching, security and police arrived to the scene … and only then, Garcia says, Shamrock backed off.

Garcia also claimed that she plans to file a lawsuit if the police do not press charges, so it got us thinking: If this woman jumped on our back, would we be able to identify her as a woman immediately? Ben said he was on Team Ken, Elias said Team Sane, and Seth said his apartment was taking on water and he didn’t have time for our stupid reindeer games.

So as we like to do in these situations, we’ll ask unto you: At first glance, would you make the same mistake Ken Shamrock, Ms. Swan, and Austin Powers made?

I mean, I voted It's a man, baby! but a really, really thin/weak looking man. I mean, I'm not sure if I would've been able to tell the difference but, Shamrock's a big dude, right? build up and shit, I bet he would've knocked the shizzle out of her/him/it.

Even if sHE was a 120-pounder... I mean, you people would kick the hell out of a Rabid Chihuahua... right?

I say it was an early stoppage, had it gone longer I am pretty sure Melinda would have been able to score a TKO over Ken.

While on his new job as a mall cop, Ken Shamerock fights three girls in a superfight. After hitting the Miguel Torres-looking one in the face, leaving absolutely no damage whatsoever, it is clear he is back to doing worked fights.

Step up like a man, suffer.
Mongrel- August 28, 2012 at 1:27 am
Even if he did mistake her for a man... It doesn't give him the right to punch some poor little 120-pounder.

He's a fucking douchebag.

You can hardly be the most dangerous man in the world if you don't hit both sexes equally, this counts as both.

Pablo honey? You washing your ass, Pablo? Keep yourself clean...honey? Please come to Florida. Pablo?

Okay- let me preface this story by the safe words "no homo"- okay: The year is 1992. I am staying with my Grandparents in socal for about a month during the summer which I used to do when I was a wee young lad. They lived in Hemet which is full of retired folks and tweakers and rather boring. I was trying to find something to do and the movie pickings were quite slim, but it was something we could all do together, a family event, you know- quality time. The television had been aggressively advertising this strange IRA action movie with Forest Whitaker that looked like one of the better options as far as what was showing so I asked them if they would like to go see it. We all got daytime matinee tickets to "The Crying Game" at a theater in Riverside and after eating lunch went to view some exciting machine gun action sequences and exploding shit. Needless to say what followed was both far below all expectations and in some very perverse ways far beyond all expectations. I am pretty resilient so to use the phrase "scarred for life" would be a bit of a stretch but suffice it to say my life would have possibly, in some small way, been better as a whole if I had not seen "The Crying Game". My Grandfather had a good sense of humor and mercilessly ridiculed me for at least a week. Damn you Forest Whitaker! How could you lure me off to see such a shamelessly unnecessary spectacle?! Aaaarrrrrrrrrggggggghhhhhhhh!!!!!!!!

Xeno has been mia for quite a while.. can't say I mind. Welcome back.
jizzninja- August 27, 2012 at 7:33 pm
It feels good to be back to cagepotato. Nice to see all the old faces around. Is that homo "xeno" still spewing retarded shit around these parts?
jizzninja- August 27, 2012 at 7:31 pm
Doesn't matter if it was a man or woman, that little shit stain weighs 120 lbs. That aside I'm glad he beat those girls up "the world's most dangerous man" doesn't give a fuck he'll knock a bitch out or atleast try. Watch out karma he's coming for ya
Nippletwist- August 27, 2012 at 7:17 pm
theyre probably both lying. 3 sides of the story you know, his version, her version, and what actually happened. shamrocks seems like a dirtbag so i wouldn't be surprised at anything, but this chick looks like some weird dyke who would probably instigate a fight. they were probably both drunk as shit.

Isn't that one of the John Leguizamo characters from his 1 man Broadway show. I am pretty sure the he-she's name was Chooch and was a pre-op trans-gendered street-walker.

Ok, now why am I getting harassing text messages from someone named "Hoochie"?!?

I'd need to check the bumpers out before voting.

He may have thought it was Takanori Gomi, seriously did we all already forget about this:

"..there's NO WAY Shamrock could have confused her for a man."

Uhhhhhhhhhh, hmmmm. Was "she" wearing a dress and sporting pigtails or something? If not, ummmmmmm...
RSparrow- August 27, 2012 at 5:24 pm
Karma, you really need to decide what you're gonna do with your hair... not diggin this style too much.
Pen Fifteen- August 27, 2012 at 5:05 pm
And for comparison, I'm gonna go with aneroxic Lou Diamond Phillips.

Looks like a Hispanic Ralph Macchio starring in the next "Aye Carumba Kid."
