Earlier in the week Frank Shamrock took part in a chat on the Pro Elite website forum, where he addressed a number of questions asked by the fans themselves. MMADigest has pretty solid excerpts from the chat, which highlight some of the most pertinent information the current Strikeforce champion and former UFC champion had to offer.
Frank began by commenting on the knee injury he sustained before his fight with Phil Baroni, and how it is definitely not going to effect his MMA game:
“My knee is doing very well, I’m in constant rehab and it feels almost 100%. I’ll never be a running back for the NFL, but I will be the best MMA fighter in the world.”
Regarding who’s next on Shamrocks hit list was also made abundantly clear:
“Rematch- I want to fight Renzo but he’s still recovering and in acting classes. I’m seeing if Cung Le will step up and be a real man.”
And of course if you haven’t heard by now, Frank is still planning on making the Shamrock/Shamrock match a reality:
“Ken fight is almost true, been working on it for 2 yrs and I’m trying to make it happen ‘Brother vs. Brother’, absolutely. 2009, Shamrock vs. Shamrock”
Thirty-five year old Frank Shamrock also discussed his ten year career plan and I have to say, it sounds pretty intense:
“I will fight for 10 more years, 21 fights total, one every 6 months.”
And one more thing I just couldn’t ignore. Frank went on to discuss how he would fare against some of the huskier MMA opponents out there:
“I would easily beat Kimbo Slice and Brock Lesnar.”
So there you have it. Frank claims that Shamrock vs. Shamrock is a go, and that his next fight will either be a rematch with Renzo or the always entertaining Cung Le. Personally I’m not huge on the Shamrock vs. Shamrock scheme, but that’s a whole other article.
