November 14, 2011 Steroids is cheating, period! Guys like Barry Bonds, Mark Macguire, etc. These guys broke records while they were on roids. That’s called “cheating”. Their records shouldn’t count, and it’s a disgrace to the original record holders. Football, Hockey, UFC, Boxing, etc. should all test for roids and act accordingly. Hence, Chael Sonnen had to sit out for a year. Don’t just look the other way and act like the problem’s not there… Log in to Reply snype6969 November 14, 2011 gotta love shamrock, he just couldnt evolve with tha sport. great guy though. Log in to Reply morbidcro November 15, 2011 Definitly have to agree with the end of that. All that juvenile behavior and trash talking is going to turn it into boxing. I know people say it gets them excited for the fights, but I find it annoying. A good matchup gets me excited for a fight. Machida vs. Jones for example, I haven’t heard any trash talking, but I know I’ll more than likely buy it because that’s a good, intriguing match up. I hate listening to Nick Diaz talk, but I love watching him fight and I’ll be more likely to purchase a ppv if he’s on the card.

Come on not all these guys juice. Shows what the Shamrocks have left as a legacy WWF fans are all that interview him. Log in to Reply mma101 November 15, 2011 I always thought Ken was a meathead, but he changed my mind during this interview. He had some great insight on the past, present, and future of the sport. Log in to Reply Dr steel November 15, 2011 WOW I have a new found respect for Ken. He kept it real. The gut just seems to “tell it like it is” and like him or not you got to respect him for that! Oh yeah he seems really sharp mentally..Any body notice that? Log in to Reply joeyjojo November 15, 2011 very interesting to hear the thoughts of a pioneer…some opinions things i agree with some i don’t, but ken’s thoughts are always interesting…nice clip…thanks bruno Log in to Reply Fire November 15, 2011 Ken Shamrock is cool. Log in to Reply james2342 November 15, 2011 honest. Log in to Reply Oldassgrappler November 15, 2011 Good interview. I agree with snype that Shamrock did not evolve with the sport. Still wish that he would have kicked Tito’s arss! Log in to Reply tobes November 15, 2011 most of the people using steroids use it to recover from injury, not to juice up (at least in MMA, maybe not other sports). I’m not saying it’s good for the sport, but the line between cheating and trying to get back to normal is blurred. when I had a serious shoulder injury from a bad landing I was prescribed cortizone pills to help with the recovery. Were those ‘steroids’? Technically…. but so is what a doctor will prescribe you to get rid of a poison ivy outbreak. Just wanted to explain that it’s bot as black and white as people might think. Also Common sensei i question your common sense. LWs can’t beat HWs. There’s a reason for weight divisions. Log in to Reply tobes November 15, 2011 *not as black and white (‘bot’ haha) Log in to Reply Lando November 15, 2011 Nobody’s saying roids are bad if they are prescribed legally by a doctor. If they are for treating injuries, and legal, why would the commission punish people like Sonnen? So the athletes need to shut the **** up about it being for injuries. Log in to Reply brucelee23 November 15, 2011 Does shamrock talk about his hair transplant too ?? Log in to Reply Op_of_faith November 15, 2011 REALLY good interview…impressed!!! Log in to Reply amosaback November 15, 2011 “The whole pancreas scene…..” Do you mean like dumping water and bicarbonate into the small intestine and insulin and glucagon into the bloodstream? Log in to Reply ericsson November 15, 2011 Common Sense! everybody is cheating then Log in to Reply paulwonder November 15, 2011 seems like a cool dude Log in to Reply 666submissions November 15, 2011 what the **** is that on the interviewers face? Log in to Reply Common Sense! November 15, 2011 @ tobes. Who said anything about LW’s beating HW’s or different weight divisions? WTF?Obviously, I wasn’t talking about a doctor prescribing it to rehab from injury people! I’m talking about using it to gain an advantage in competition. Hence, cheating! And no ericsson, not everybody does it! That’s why you only hear about people getting caught every once in awhile. Marquart, Sonnen for instance…. Log in to Reply MRBARBARYCOAST November 15, 2011 My first fight that I watched live was Ken versus Royce in the rematch and I remember not being able to catch my breath because I was anticipating a submission by Royce-but it was the first time that I had ever seen BJJ soundly defeated Log in to Reply Dave November 16, 2011 he sounds to be pretty honest here. Log in to Reply graciefan November 16, 2011 First time I watched UFC, shamrock was just beaten by Royce Gracie in the semis, the announcer asked him if he was the second best fighter in the tournament. He said he was the third best fighter. He seemed very humble and honest. Then he went to pro wrestling and became an ass. Bet let’s give credit where it’s due he was atrue pioneer of MMA, he was the only one from he early days with knowledge on striking and ground. He created the Lion’s Den which was the first true MMA gym. Log in to Reply Clemmit November 16, 2011 great video to post here Bruno, thank you. I only intended to watch five minutes but got sucked into watching the whole thing, intriguing Log in to Reply MMA Richmond November 16, 2011 Enjoyable Log in to Reply greengiant November 17, 2011 i agree with almost everything he said.not everyone does roids though and i do think its cheating.
