I feel more for the fighters rather than the promoters. I am looking forward to the exciting fights that the UFC can make now. Log in to Reply wolfman January 14, 2013 Why does frank always get introduced as a legend? He hardly had any notable fights (hardly* is being generous). Log in to Reply ericsson January 14, 2013 you are not old enough to remember stupid he was UFC champ at one time ,the dude fought in the 90’s in japan Log in to Reply TheKungFuLowKick January 14, 2013 At his time Frank was the best UFC champ.He was 5-0 all finishes in his title fights.He’s also one of the 1st to be good in the 3 aspects of MMA.He deserves to be in the “UFC hall of fame” but the hall of fame is a joke. Log in to Reply shitface January 14, 2013 Frank Shamrock was 5-0 in the ufc. All of them were championship fights. Log in to Reply BamBam January 14, 2013 Shamrock just bummed out because the gig’s up for him and he has nowhere to go! maybe Dana will let him wipe his arse! where do you from here Frank? into oblivion!!!!! Log in to Reply KouNTa KuLCHa January 14, 2013 Frank Shamrock left the UFC as undisputed champ, finishing the likes of Jeremy Horn and Tito Ortiz, to name a few. Labeled the G.O.A.T. by many fanboys back in 2000-01, he deserves every right to the title “legend”. P.S. That would have been a bad fight for Pat Miletich to take back then♠ Log in to Reply MMAgiantsilva January 14, 2013 This is about as good a reflection as to why Coker and Strikeforce failed it is in this interview. Log in to Reply Roe Jogan January 14, 2013 To say Frank Shamrock is not a legend makes a person an ignorant douche. Wolfman, you are an ignorant douche. Log in to Reply farewell January 14, 2013 i’ll never forget when Frank Shamrock fought Igor Zinoviev, who i believe was undefeated at the time, and Frank slammed him on his shoulder and ended his career. For those who are too young, Frank was literally like water. He was a true martial artist..much respect! Log in to Reply TheKungFuLowKick January 14, 2013 @farewell I remember seeing that when I was a kid.I was really into pro wrestling back then and when I saw Frank knock Igor out and break his neck,I stopped watching every kind of pro wrestling.That was an amazing takedown and it shows how wrestling(real not WWF)can be deadly vs somebody who doesn’t know how to wrestle much. @wolfman Real fans respect Frank Shamrock unless they are idiots and douchebags.He was the 1st wrestler,submission grappler,and kickboxer there were guys like Ruas and Frye who were good at 2 dicsiplines but he was the 1st complete fighter.Just for that fact he should be a Legend.If there was an MMA Hall of Fame(real one not UFC) he would be one of the 1st inducted.You are a retard and should know more about MMA history before opening your mouth.i would’ve loved to see you back then when everybody was starting out and nobody really knew what style was effective.He already knew in the early 90s what was pretty much the most effective.If there is even 1% chance you would’ve had the balls to compete in the early UFC,your styles would’ve probably been ice breaking and weightlifting you numbskull.Have a nice day douche. Log in to Reply wolfman January 14, 2013 Look at his record. He fought nobodies. No one here made a cogent argument. I know he was UFC champ, but look who he fought. Case closed. Log in to Reply wolfman January 14, 2013 Kungfu lowkick, Roe Jogan, Ericson, Get a girlfriend or something. Your guys life must suck for acting like such a monumental d-bags. Log in to Reply jeff_figmb January 15, 2013 This guy is ****ed. Opened your mouth too much now what Shamrock? 15 minutes of fame is over, we’ll all forget who the eff you are in no time… that’s what you get for ripping on the UFC and Dana white. See ya… Log in to Reply palladynPl January 15, 2013 Guys ignore wolfman he’s just trolling. Log in to Reply mmafan11 January 15, 2013 Dunno why some guys hate fighters. Franks done more than most in MMA. For all the guys hating on Frank try using Google if you know what that is cause you don’t seem to know much. And Frank can still take you tough guys posting here out be a man go spar with him if u got any balls. Log in to Reply Mag January 15, 2013 BamBam – jesus christ, what a pathetic immature kid you must be. Yeah we can smell the stench of koolaid that a “UFC-only” fan has from a mile away, but just because you have an “allegiance” to a promotional brand and its figure head Dana White, there is no need to shit on a pioneer and legend of the sport. Have a thought of your own rather than parroting his bullshit agenda, and grow the **** up. Log in to Reply JO January 15, 2013 Dude Shamrock was a stud. If you think he fought nobodies then you either haven’t looked at his record or are too new to know who his opponents were. Notable wins over top talent include Tito, Bas Rutten, Funaki, Vernon White, Kosaka, Enson Inoue, Kevin Jackson, Igor, Horn, Sinosic, Cesar Gracie, Baroni…those were all top guys when he fought them, the last two were when he was aging but Baroni still had a lot in the tank. He was obviously the top middleweight in the world for a couple of years, no question. He even took out Tito when Tito was unstoppable, and Tito outweighted him by a ton. Probably 20 pounds. Go watch that fight, it’s awesome. Also his fights with Renzo, Cung Le and Diaz were pretty good. Those fights helped build MMA on Showtime. He started fighting in 1994, retired in 2003, then came back out to help his buddy start a new show. That takes balls. Huge balls. Especially when the progress of the sport from 2003-2006 was exponential. Guys were getting a TON better during that time. He had to know he was in for a pounding. And speaking of progress, he pioneered the modern MMA style. He was arguably the first well rounded fighter, even Bas during that era had a big weakness in wrestling. Tito couldn’t strike or sub worth a damn. Frank was doing it all. A complete technician. He can be a bit of a boob, sure, but the guy could fight. No question.
