WTF of the Day: Ken Shamrock Hits a Woman He Thought Was a Dude

“I used to kind of have the opposite problem whenever I’d visit Thailand. Long story.”

And now for something completely different.

It’s 2012, yet I’m about to tell you that Ken Shamrock did something of relevance yesterday. Before you start to guess what he did: Yes, it was actually winning a fight – even though his opponent was just some random tubbaguts. No, it wasn’t a sanctioned MMA fight that he won. And obviously, it was pretty damn embarrassing for everyone involved. Give up yet? Brace yourselves…

Ken Shamrock, while breaking up a fight, hit a woman.  His justification for hitting the woman wasn’t so much “She attacked me first, and I was simply defending myself” as it was the rock-solid “Wait, THAT’S a chick? For real? GET OUT!” defense.

Not that I think any of you are surprised by this, but let’s read what wrote about the incident after the jump:

Shamrock — whose nickname is “The World’s Most Dangerous Man” — was hangin’  out at a mall in Modesto, CA last month when he saw two women fighting each  other in front of the Coach store … surrounded by a group of lookie loos  filming the whole thing.

We’re told Shamrock dove into the scrap and  tried to pry the women apart … when one of the bystanders, a HEAVYSET  bystander, jumped on his back and tried to rip Ken out of the pile.

Shamrock’s rep tells TMZ … he threw the person off of his back and  followed up with a move that knocked the attacker to the ground.

After  the person was incapacitated, the crowd shouted at Ken, “You just hit a girl.”  Ken took a closer look and realized the attacker was in fact a female .. so he  immediately backed off.

An officer arrived to the scene and took a  battery report against Shamrock, noting the only injury was a slight abrasion to  the woman’s knee. The report was sent to the District Attorney’s Office.

But law enforcement sources tell TMZ … Shamrock probably won’t be  prosecuted because officials don’t feel the woman he knocked to the ground is a  “victim.” In fact, they believe Ken was acting in self-defense.

Just so we’re all on the same page: Ken Shamrock was breaking up a fight that was being filmed in front of a Coach store – which is ironic, considering these types of promotions are the only ones still willing to book Ken Shamrock - when some tubby jumped on his back. Despite the fact that his chin is held together by shards of glass, chewed bubble gum and tainted supplements, he stayed awake and managed to knock down his opponent (?!). Upon actually looking at his foe, Shamrock realized that “he” was actually just a husky “she.” Regardless, Shamrock more than likely won’t be punished for this because he was defending himself, and stopped attacking once his attacker backed off.

I know that Ken Shamrock’s career has really taken a turn for the absurd as of late, but this story is crazy even for him. So crazy, in fact, that I have nothing sarcastic or terrible to say about it. I just wish that Dana White heard about Ken Shamrock’s triumphant victory a little bit sooner.

And in that moment, Ken suddenly realized how Evangelista Santos felt on his wedding night.

Ken ever tell you guys about what the Nasty Boys did to him in his hotel room in the WWF days?

If they were fighting over one of those broke ass, made-for-the-outlets Coach bags then these silly bitches all got what was coming to them.

All jokes aside, Ken was trying to break up a fight between two bitches and then gets attacked by one of the she-beasts. He swiftly whoops her ass and then people try to judge him for hitting a girl in defense? Get over yourself TMZ!

Ken will take a one punch KO on a fat chick over throwing in the towel for exhaustion after 75 shots to Fujita's fat head any day.

@mckellion Give me a break. Ken has spent the last decade trading in his due respect for paychecks.

Wasn't this on Family Guy once?

oops normally I'm not still logged in. Oh well


I trained at lions den for 18 months. Ken's kind of a dick & hasn't done THAT much for the sport. Let it go.

@Viva Hate- LOL!!! You had me rolling!

For all Ken done for the sport in the early days and he gets a write up like this... You should be ashamed to call yourself an MMA fan.

*sigh* First off, welcome to Cage Potato, where there are no sacred cows.

Second, it's not "What have you done," they're "What have you done for me lately?" when it comes to sports. And lately, Shamrock's career has been a bit of a wild clusterfuck. It doesn't mean he wasn't a legend of our sport - but it also sure as hell doesn't mean we have to write "He was a legend you guys!" every time he beats up some fatty. If that bothers you, you might want to get off the internet: It ain't exactly a forgiving place.

In Shamrock's defense it very easily could have been Tito in drag.

Shamrock was also quoted as saying “You don’t know Baby D. Baby D. This fat bitch get physical. She sells dope, do hair and baby-sit out ofthe same house.The police don't know when to go in. I got a restraining order on her too. You don't know Baby D.That's why you're lookin' at me, 'cause you don't know Baby D. Her fat ass be snoring, won't even be asleep, just standing.Little cupcakes and shit--this bitch know about all the new snacks before they even hit the street. All the bootleg snacks. Year 2013 snacks. Gonna tell me about a new Twinkie comin' out next month. It's a bad motherfucker, when you bite into a cream-filled, it shoot all over your mouth with glitter n shit.”

This is Shamrock's best win since the mid-90s...

I will be sorely disappointed when the video surfaces if we don't also learn that he was also in a Paul Blart uniform at this mall.

What a missed opportunity to link to the family guy episode where the same thing happened to peter.
monkyspunk- August 24, 2012 at 10:32 am
why does the title of this state that Ken was "arrested" when he clearly was not?

Thought Ken shamrock retired after the kimbo debacle
