A look back at a classic grappling match between MMA legends Frank Shamrock and Dan Henderson at “The Contenders” international wrestling.
The videos also features a look back into each fighters training during the late 90’s. Shamrock had just built a lifetime worth of MMA experience in Japan and was now trying to make it in the US.
