RE: Ken and Frank Shamrock settle their feud
Shamrock vs Franklin was the only work I feel like I know is a work despite no proof.. When Ken acted like he got hit and fell when Franklin missed the punch..

His stunt with Kimbo was disgraceful too.. I believe he cut himself to get out of that fight..

Frank shamrock offered to step in as literally the last minute replacement.. From the commentators booth

Frank is the one who comes across as a messed up person. I do think it was bad that he didn't make peace with Bob Shamrock when he had the chance, and it obviously eats him up now. Also the way he treated his real brother when he wrote to Frank asking for help. Frank says "He didn't look real good the last time I saw him, I'm worried", but that was 7-8 years ago. If he had really been worried he wouldn't have waited all this time to try and find him, and then give him nothing anyway.

Thats what i thought as i watched it. I used to think Ken as a delusional narcissist but he comes across as a down to earth person in this doc, and Frank as a manchild.

RE: Ken and Frank Shamrock settle their feud
You guys pick the strangest people to rag on. Ken was one of the best first generation mma fighters with wins over Bas Rutten, Dan Severn, and Maurice Smith. He was also one of the first well rounded fighters. Not well rounded by today's standards, but in an era of specialists Ken could strike, submit, and wrestle reasonably well.

Yeah, Ken had nothing for the next generation of fighters like Rizzo, Tito, and Sakuraba, but that's typical. Look at BJ Penn's last 10 fights. Even Fedor lost to Bigfoot, a guy who belongs in the WWE.

RE: Ken and Frank Shamrock settle their feud
Frank has Charming Charisma. We have seen time and again too many examples that should cause us to be wary of Charming Charisma. This does not imply that Frank is a bad person....simply that he is human and suffers the same flaws and imperfections as the rest of us.

As a Fighter, Frank was an amazing talent combining genetic gift, intelligence, confidence, and hard work. He belongs in the category of a Sugar Ray Robinson as one who could be successful in any era.


Ken strikes me as one which was probably a better Street Fighter than he was a Sport Fighter. Probably also better in the Gym than the Big Time. Maybe I'm wrong about it but that's the impression I get.


Some time ago, I think it was a Bellator Production, where different coaches and their teams competed. Frank was one of the coaches. If I had the opportunity I would have chosen Frank for his intelligent understanding of athletic training combined with martial-art and psychology.

I've heard from people who worked in state-run orphanages (or whatever they're called today) that it's nearly impossible to keep the kids from huffing whatever they find.

RE: Ken and Frank Shamrock settle their feud
the ultimate irony for an adopted orphanage kid:

Quote:UFC Fighter Frank Shamrock Admits to Leaving Mom's Dog Tied to a Truck at the Airport for 4 Days

The fighter claimed that there were no other options for the "old dog with a goofy hip"

Former UFC fighter, Frank Shamrock, could be charged with animal cruelty after he abandoned a dog in a Dallas airport parking garage for multiple days.

Shamrock, 46, initially searched for someone to care for his mother’s dog Zelda on social media, but when he couldn’t find anyone to take her, he instead tied the 7-year-old Labrador mix to the bed of a pickup truck and flew out to another state.

RE: Ken and Frank Shamrock settle their feud
^yeah, that was dreadful, I remembered reading about it but it had no impact on my consideration of him as a fighter/coach/athlete and is why I mentioned that part about the Charming Charisma, flaws, imperfections and all that, something I had suspected before the above news story, just as I am always cautious about charming Charismatics as the forums will remember my suspicions of Trump, Peterson, Tolle, and so on....

RE: Ken and Frank Shamrock settle their feud
^I agree that it was a very scumbag thing to do. Oddly he seems a rather clever fellow as most charismatics are....just goes to show why one should be humble because even "smart" people can do DUMB things Big Grin
