Ken Shamrock (28-15-2) fires off verbal bombs at anyone who ever said he should not fight again.
Shamrock says these “pen pushers” don’t know what it’s like to be told you can’t do something that you love to do and insists he will continue to fight and entertain the fans as long as he is able and as long as they want to see him.
Shamrock is scheduled to fight heavyweight boxing champ James “Lights Out” Toney (1-0) on Sept. 23 in Texas.
In this second video Shamrock discusses his upcoming special rules MMA bout with Toney, talks about why he wanted a “30 second shot clock” to stand them up off the ground and believes it will be a historic match that will change the face of MMA.
Shamrock feels fighters sometimes stall on the ground to get the decision and he wants to help cut that out. Interestingly enough, it was this very technique he himself employed in his 36 minute snooze-fest against Royce Gracie at UFC 5 that allowed him to survive the distance for the draw (no judges).
“The World’s Most Dangerous Man” goes on to talk about the respect he has for Toney for being willing to get back in the MMA cage and thinks he will be well prepared.
Ken also discussed his sons’ fight careers, including his son Sean Shamrock, who defeated Craig Yustat via Triangle Choke submission at 1:27 of the first round at “Fight Republic: Reno’s Downtown Showdown” on Friday, July 8, in Reno.
