UFC veteran Ken Shamrock will return to MMA action tomorrow night in London when he faces Robert Berry in a heavyweight bout at Cage Rage 25. The event will be broadcast on Showtime and will also feature Kenâ€™s 19 year old son Ryan Shamrock, who will be competing on the undercard earlier in the evening. According to a report from MMA Junkie, Ken Shamrockâ€™s fight with the not so well known Robert Berry could also be more important than one might think:
“â€¦A victory on Saturday could earn Shamrock a fight with Kevin “Kimbo Slice” Ferguson — during the first-ever EliteXC event broadcast by CBS.”
At 44 years old and having won only one of his past seven fights, Ken Shamrock could definitely use the exposure a major network has to offer. Kenâ€™s last MMA performance was in October of 2006 at UFCâ€™s â€œOrtiz vs. Shamrock 3: The Final Chapterâ€ where he suffered a third TKO loss to former light heavyweight champion Tito Ortiz. Naturally, Shamrock really needs to win this one if he is to keep any draw to his aging name.
