According to ProElite.com, UFC veteran Ken Shamrock and his son Ryan Shamrock have signed a multi-fight contract with EliteXC. The father and son duo will debut under the EliteXC promotion at Cage Rage 25 on March 8 from the Wembley Arena in London, England.
EliteXC president Gary Shaw:
“We’re thrilled to have signed Ken and Ryan Shamrock,’’
UFC Veteran Ken Shamrock:
I’m totally committed to returning to the cage injury free and anxious about fighting in England for the first time…….It is very exciting for both Ryan and I. We will be making MMA history by being the first father and son to ever fight on the same card.
This is a great opportunity we are getting with EliteXC. Give me a fight or two and I will be ready to fight anybody.
Ryan Shamrock (1-0):
I think I am more excited than nervous about fighting on the same card with my dad. If anything, it gives me more incentive. I get the chance to show that there is another Shamrock out there who can compete as well as he can.
