Ken Shamrock wants to fight Royce Gracie at UFC:Rio

&feature=player_embedded

In the most heroic attempt to turn lemons into lemonade I’ve ever heard of, Ken Shamrock is trying to turn his lawsuit gone wrong with Zuffa into a big money fight with Royce Gracie at UFC Rio:

Ken Shamrock spoke Fight Network Radio recently and stated that he believes that if the UFC would look past their personal and legal issues and give him a rubbermatch with Royce Gracie at UFC Rio in August, they will sell out and set pay-per-view records much like his pair of fights with Tito Ortiz did.

“There’s no doubt in my mind, and anyone else will tell you that if this fight was to happen, this would be the biggest pay-per-view to date, but they will not let that happen. [The UFC] would have to swallow their egos for that to happen and these guys have too big of egos to let that happen,” he said. “I love to fight. I want to fight. I think staying within my capabilities of fighting people who were from my time…Trying to fight these young kids, obviously I’m a bit too old for that, but if I stay within my realm of things I think fans would enjoy it, I would enjoy it and I think it’s good for the sport.”

Unfortunately, what was once the biggest and most legit fight in MMA is now so past it’s due date that it couldn’t be considered anything other than a freakshow fight. I hear Gary Goodridge’s picture is next to ‘Blown out fighter’ in next year’s fight dictionary but Ken Shamrock has held that spot for the past decade. He hasn’t been competitive since 1996 and has spent the past few years popping positive for steroids and fighting morbidly obese men on the verge of death.

Add in the fact that Ken has a history of clusterfucking everything he has a hand in and the UFC already has enough reasons to say no before the lawsuits and Dana’s hatred get factored in. The fight might sound sweet at first blush, but that’s just the 90’s singing it’s sweet retro siren song from 20 FUCKING YEARS AGO. But this is less like busting out your old Nintendo and more like finding some broken He-Man action figures in a manure pile.

    He couldn’t put on a watchable fight with Royce and Roids when I was in high school and I don’t see it happening now that he’s gotten worse and less creative at problem solving.

    …Trying to fight these young kids, obviously I’m a bit too old for that, but if I stay within my realm of things I think fans would enjoy it, I would enjoy it and I think it’s good for the sport.

    Ken Shamroids saying what’s good for the sport … I’m glad he’s transitioning so seamlessly into his new comedy career and I wish him the best.
