Ken Shamrock: The fight with Frank WILL happen

Everyone has been so excited about Randy Couture reminding us that he’ll be able to fight Fedor in the fall of 2008 that no one seemed to care that Ken Shamrock was also interviewed at HDNet’s Reckless Abandon show and he basically said that he and his brother would definately absolutely 100% fight soon.

Hey, I’m all about Randy vs Fedor too, but I’m kinda amazed that barely anyone has mentioned this. Do people not recognize the massive mainstream appeal that will be channeled by a Shamrock vs Shamrock event? While Randy vs Fedor is a match that fans want to see, Shamrock vs Shamrock is the kind of fight everyone and their dumb little brothers want to see. If I had to bet on which one would sell more PPVs, I’d have to chose the Shamrock brothers.

Anyways, this is just a public service announcement since no one else seems to care enough to mention it. And don’t worry, I already know I’m all about gobbling Shamrock nutz so you don’t have to say it 1000 times in the comment section. Or do you? Can you resist???

    The Shamrock nut hugging continues……

    should be a tito/thompson vs the shamrocks tag team match with a special guest referee

  • operator

    Frank will show no respect for his elders and destroy his older brother. I hope they get paid well either way.

  • fightlinker

    The big question is WHO will pay for it. I could see it being a HDNet / EliteXC co-promotion with countdown shows playing on both networks and the event being PPV

    Even though they are brothers by adoption, they are still brothers. It’s not something I really want to see.

  • matt (tapout name shitstain)

    I hope they both drop for ankle locks instantly.

    Who cares? Frank is overrated and Ken is a has-been.

    What mainstream media appeal, anyways? Tito was the juice behind Ken Shamrock. Without Ortiz, Kenny isn’t a draw. See: IFL.

  • fightlinker

    Well, the IFL could have Osama Bin Laden on their show and no one would notice

    This just goes to show how far Ken’s star has fallen. It wasn’t long ago that he vehemently proclaimed that he would never fight Frank. Only now has he realized that his only way back into a major promotion is via a novelty match-up with his younger brother. The only reason Frank would do this would be for the money; a fight with Ken does nothing for his reputation.

    What’s nice about a fight like this is that either way, an asshole will get the shit kicked out of him. Hooray!

  • islandguy

    Talk about freak shows. Brother Vs Brother! I can write the promos without seeing them. I’ll be there lapping it up with the rest of them, dammit.

  • operator

    They probly have some built up anger from way back when Ken fucked Franks girl or something like that and they still need to work it out after all these years. Or maybe Ken feels like he was never loved as a child cuz he was adopted and Frank got all the love from their mother. Or maybe ken broke the head off franks gi joe. Or maybe it is just for the money.

    Wow.. Talk about WWF type of material!! I remember seeing the commericals for Kane vs Undertaker, Brother Vs Brother. Yet this is real and not a wrestling match… I would buy it, pending if there are othe great fights on the card. If its just them highlighting the night. Then now. The undercard should showcase some talent. Bro vs Bro will not carry it for most MMA fans, esp those who was a fan before the TUF generation.

    wake me when the results are in…
