Report: Mark Coleman vs. Ken Shamrock in the Works for July Impact Fighting Championships Event in Australia


(Coleman and Shamrock had to be restrained by their respective corners after being informed prior to their bout that prune juice had been added to the banned substances list)

I’m not sure if it’s because of the weather, the beaches or their commission’s lax drug testing policies, but Australian MMA is attracting quite a few fighters these days.

MMANews is reporting that Ken Shamrock and Mark Coleman will face each other under the Strikeforce Aussie-based Impact Fighting Championships banner July 10. The promotion’s inaugural event will also feature a main card bout between Josh Barnett and Geronimo "Mondragon" Dos Santos.


Shamrock, who is 3-7 in his past ten fights, has not fought since defeating stevia magnate, Dan Quinn‘s training partner Ross Clifton (RIP) last February. Following the bout, the UFC Hall of Fame inductee was suspended for one year by the California State Athletic Commission for testing positive for the anabolic agents 19-Norandrosterone, 19-Noretiocholanolone and Stanozolol. Since the suspension, the 46-year-old made headlines for his failed lawsuit against the UFC’s parent company Zuffa LLC.

Coleman was recently dropped by the UFC after compiling a 1-2 record in the Octagon that consisted of a win over Stephan Bonnar and losses to Randy Couture and Mauricio "Shogun" Rua. Since being let go by the promotion, the 45-year old has kept mum as to whether or not he planned to fight again, but it appears as though he is going to take at least one more fight before applying for his pension.

ufc 110 was absolutely massive here in australia. This will probably be huge as well (despite the shitty line up so far). Australia is ripe for the picking Dana, COME AND EXPLOIT US

Josh Barnett by law should be required to compete in a sparkly purple sequined Mexican wrestling mask and stretchy pants.

Just read on five oz of pain that they are planning to show this Impact card on PPV in North America, good to see an Australian company trying to do international events and grow, but they have Josh barnett in the main event, so how much reallistically are they going to be able to charge for this? and if its over say $5 bucks what sort of shitty buy rate are they gonna do?

what the fuck is going on in that Shamrock picture? That is seriously the gayest picture I have ever seen. I knew Coleman would be fighting again eventually, and he definitely takes this one. Shamrock wouldn't be able to beat Bonner or last a round with Couture. I'm pretty sure I could choke out Shamrock at this point.

They might as well allow 12 - 6 elbows, since both of these clowns will be on their backs panting for precious oxygen as they stare at the clock, realizing that they still have 4.30 to go in the first round.

LOL Burrito, gas for the drive. Are knees allowed to downed opponent? Would love to se some north south knees.

Shamrock needs to be shipped to a compound in Montana with no phones, internet or tv. The only electronic media is AM radio, and the mail only comes every fifty four days. This is the same compound I keep saying that Jens Pulver needs to be shipped to. We'll call it the "I'm too fucking stupid to know my career is over because I got old and can't compete, but don't know it" compound. We'll call it the No More Rounds community.

I figure if we surround these dopes with all the washed up, over the hill hookers from the Mustang Ranch to be harem girls, they won't protest too much.

Ken can bring his hype-man to wipe his ass for him and tell him how great he is. Jens can sit with Frito's wife and reminisce about the time he beat BJ Penn, a hundred and thirty years ago. While she's rimming him.

Is good plan, no?

Shamrock suddenly realizes he needs more fiber in his diet.

^^^I don't have a Mom, me and my Dad just share yours.


Yup- Coolman might be on his way out but Schlep-rock is through, has been for a while, stick a fork in him. Shermstick can't even win legal battles that he starts these days. I see this one going down like that old classic "Coleman vs. Shoji" except Coleman will literally punch a hole from Ken's left side all the way out through the right.

This fight wont happen. Someone will pull out. Much like me and your moms!!!

@EFBurrito: I literally LOL'd @ the "Coleman/Gas" comment. *Props*

In the top photo Shamrock's hype-man is sure looking at his ass with bad-intentions...Clinch harder Ken, Clinch!!!!

Make sure that Ken's check is signed payable to Zuffa LLC

I hope Coleman wins over the crowd by coming out in a hockey mask:

Oh, and wait until Coleman finds out how much gas it's going to take to drive to Australia.

Dammit, El Famous! You win. I'm sending you half of my internets.
BryanF- May 3, 2010 at 10:11 am
Let's not forget the real victim in all this...STEPHAN BONNAR.

C'mon man, you make it harder and harder for me to cheer for you. You got beat by Coleman less than a year ago (i think). And look at him now...Bonnar, go play the lottery because you are one the luckiest summbitchez in the world to still have a job with the UFC.

@Rex13

I'm pretty sure that Impact FC is a new promo, PPV seems unlikely, so expect this to show up on HDNET.

Either way this is gonna be a sloppy fight lol

There's nothing more pathetic than watching former greats who are too stupid or stubborn to realize their fighting days are behind them.

The MMA community needs to make a stand and lock these guys (and others like them) out of competition for their own safety and the good name of the sport.

This isn't a movie about an underground fighter making his last big hurrah of a comeback in order to get money for little Stevie's operation. This is real life, and if these roid mongers fought someone close to their own age, they'd be killed. Even by fighting each other, the level of exertion they're extracting from their broken bodies is enough to kick off a pretty little thing I like to call a massive coronary infarction.

Nom sayin?

@luisterrijk

Heh, I never thought anyone would ever notice that. I haven't been there in a long damn time. Where are you from that you have basked in the glow of the football-sized burrito?
