    This is a circus fight! Ken needs to retire and Frank needs to grow some balls and fight a decent fighter!!

    Frank Shamrock expressed interest in fighting Wanderlei Silva when Pride was still around; he expressed it last year in an interview. He said he likes to fight people that "scare" him. Wanderlei probably scares everyone in the division. Ken used to be good. His ground game is good, but lately, he's been lacking that aggression, fire, and speed that he used to have. He still has those big arms. Did you guys see Ryan Shamrock (Ken's son) fight a few weekends ago? He was as skinny as a toothpick! I know he's only 18 years old, but he migh need some of Ken's juice!

    Dude dont diss Frank. He is old school. He will whip some serious ass and he will fight anybody. And smile doing it:) If this fight happens it wont make it out of the first round Frank will put Ken to sleep. Did anyone see the sick ass combo frank put on Baronis face that dropped him in to the cage. Thatwas sick as Fu*k.

    Steve's right, Franks is still good and will whoop on Ken. What I liked most about the Baroni fight was his "you're making me fall asleep" taunt…that was too funny.

    I think it's just hype. They won’t fight. I like Ken, but Frank would win.

    I'd pay to see that one. Dont think it will happen but it would have been good.

    Frank just accepted a fight with Cung Le. Ken is washed up anyways and turtles up in every fight. I would rather see Frank and Cung Le go at it so we can see if all the hype about Le is for real.

    Frank and Tito already happened, and Tito went to sleep. That was a few years ago, you can find the fight on the net

    Check it out, first of all, Ken Shamrock is a has been and won't ever make any kind of comeback. If he fights Frank, he's fucked for sure. Frank is unstoppable. Don't get me wrong, when Ken was younger and the UFC and the whole MMA thing was just coming up, he was a big name. Now he's just and old man looking for attention. Second, Tito didn't go to sleep in his fight with Frank in the UFC, Tito GAVE THE FUCK UP…there was no sleep. Honestly, I don't think Cung Le can beat Frank either…no one has shown the ferocity that Frank shows when he gets into the cage, sorry but anyone hoping for Frank to lose or hoping for a double Shamrock bout…keep dreaming, it ain't worth the time for that kind of fight and I don't think anyone right now has the skill or heart to beat Frank.

    From my perspective I think this fight is happening in the wrong time. You see Ken is in his 40's and Frank well he's getting there (35). Ken is too old to fight and not everyone can pull a Randy Couture (correct me if I'm wrong) but how many fights did Ken win after he return to UFC? With all do respect to Tito, if Ken can't beat him you expect him to go fight Frank? Lets talk numbers and stats. Ken was at his best when MMA was new today MMA is so advanced and Ken is lagging behind. Frank was still there when MMA was advanced. Today MMA is so advanced that with the proper training, hard work and time dedication any athlete can catch up. This fight has no means and is just for NON-MMA literate fans.

    Does anyone know if or when this fight is actually going to take place? I have to disagree with Mohammed. I think, from the perspective of an elder sibling, that Ken will train hard for this fight and give it one hundred and ten percent. (Getting beat by a younger sibling is just humiliating, I don't care if you are 100) As a devoted Ken fan, I will watch it regardless of whether it is MMA literate or not. Besides, even when Ken loses, he ALWAYS does it graciously, and that shows what a true sportsman that he is!

    mohammed i think if tito and ken faught right now in there careers that tito would win

    I'm sure that this fight will be next for Frank Shamrock because he can't get a title shot right away, he needs a win or two first. This fight makes sense for both of them right now.

    Ok first of all, that comment about this match up being for the NON MMA literate could not have been better put. You took the words right out of my mouth. Second of all i dont think i have ever seen Ken lose graciously. He lives in the past and still thinks he can beat the best in his class, he isnt rocky balboa for christ sake and even rocky lost in the last movie LOL. I admittedly do not know much about Frank but from what ive seen he is the real deal. Ken was amazing in the early days…i just want to be clear on that but he needed to go out on a good note a few years ago not after losing twice to Tito.

    Both these guys are legends to the sport no doubt and this would have been a dream match if they could both go back to their prime and fight but they cant. Frank would smash Ken now a days. This is a joke b/c of ken. Frank is still a beast but he lacks the heart. I would really like to see frank fight for the UFC but dana of course hates frank and wont sign him. Dana hates frank so much he offered Baroni a title fight if he were to beat Frank. As we know Baroni lost as usual. But of course dana still did not sign frank.Frank is undfeated in the UFC by the way.

    Ken is old, agreed… But many bring up the second Tito fight which Ken lost because of a bad decision. Since when did they start stopping finghts because of few punches. And Ken springing back up after the fight clearly shows that he wasnt much hurt. Ken is still good to fight Frank. He has the heart of a true fighter and it is tough to keep him down.

    I can't beleive what I am reading??? I am totally confused. I respect Ken for everything he did for MMA but come on, he has not won a fight in 4 years…4 years!!! In the last two years he has bounced around from the UFC, IFL, Cage Rage. and Elite. Everyone bring his him in because of his big name but when they see he is worthless at this age, they are done with him. He probably has found a home with Elite because they are a circus. As far Frank goes, I respect him to but he has nobody to fight in Elite. And his loss to Cong Le??? Come on!!! Don't get me wrong, Le is a great standup fighter but I don't understand why one of the all-time great submission artists could not take him down and submit him? Frank wanted to prove that he could beat him at this game…what is he stupid? Until he grows up mentally and changes his attitude, he is not going to be an elite fighter. This fight would be a joke. Frank would beat Ken so easily. Ken is old and slow and Frank would pick him apart. As far as saying that the Ken and Tito II fight was stopped early and that he jumped right up…maybe it was a bit early but Ken was not defending himself and if it was not stopped, Tito was in position to keep smacking him the face for the next 4 minutes. Ken had no where to go. The third fight proved it because it ended the same way. Are you going to say the third one was stopped to early to? Ken was great but like Jerry Rice, Emmit Smith, and the (unretired) Michael Jordan…he needs to give it up. He is just hurting his legacy because he should not be doing this and to the knowledgable (sp?) fan, it appears as though he is only doing it for the money.

    Come on are you serious? Ylou guys really think that this fight should be in a ring? Ken needs to take Frank out back and give him an old fashion big brother beat down. Obviously non of you are fighters with little brothers, if you were you would know that a little brother will never be able to defeat a big brother, there is too much psychology involved in a fight like this. Don't get me wrong if they were not siblings Frank probably would win. Don't get me wrong I have nothing but respect for Ken, after all non of us would know about the MMA if it were not for him and Gracie, they are the reason most of us are watching the sport now, we are hopeing to see fights like the days of old. As far as Ken retiring forget about it, the man clearly loves the sport, and who would not be honered for a chance to fight him, seriously? As for him doing it for the money, are you serious, you must not know that Ken is also a promoter, and that is were the money is not in the ring. I personally love watching Ken fight he is a true warrior with the heart of a Lion, nobody can argue that.

    Big brutha' will throw the fight, because he will be destroyed if he doesn't! I am the youngest in my family and eventually u just get fed up with bullshit! This fight won't happen. Ken was great, once upon a time, but, now is not that time. Think Cassius Clay, Momma called him Cassius, so I am going to call him Cassius!

    Ken is good a MMA legend but he is out of his league and past his prime to fight Frank and Win.
