Frank Shamrock talks sucking

Even though his recent record has losses to Renzo Gracie and Cung Le, no one really started thinking that Frank might be done until he lost to Nick Diaz. I dunno if that’s just a testament to how far he’s lost the Renzo Gracie style legacy he used to hold, or because people REALLY don’t respect Nick Diaz. Whatever the case, Frank Shamrock seems to recognize that people are in a retiring mood right now and one more shitty performance will be the end of him:

“I think I have to (make a decision) just from a smart business standpoint,” Shamrock said. “I can’t have another Nick Diaz night, unfortunately. The reason why people are Frank Shamrock fans is that I show up, and I deliver every time.”

“I’ve never gone in and gotten my ass kicked,” Shamrock said. “I’ve never gone in and not had an outstanding performance, which is what people pay for. It’s a brand-new experience for me, and I’ve always been able to go in there – broken, whatever – and been able to push it aside and perform.

“So I don’t know. Am I getting old? Do I care less? Is it time to move on? I have no idea because this is my first experience.”

Am I the only one that gets weirded out when Frank Shamrock talks about ‘performing’? For some reason when he says it, it feels like he’s talking more about entertaining than fighting. Personally, I think that’s probably one of the main reasons he’s been sucking lately.
