Ken Shamrock Returning to Action

Ken Shamrock

Aging UFC Hall of Famer Ken Shamrock is scheduled to participate in the main event of “Wargods: Valentine’s Eve Masacre” this coming Friday night in Fresno, California at the Selland Arena. The event is a co-promotion between Wargods and KSP (Ken Shamrock Promotions), marking the fighter’s first foray into the world of promoting.

Shamrock has put up a 2-8 record in his last 10 fights, and brings a five fight losing streak into the event, and recently admitted to MMAJunkie that he knows his days as an elite level fighter are over. Friday night’s fight seems to be channeling the Japanese infatuation with “freak show” fights, as Shamrock is slated to face the 6’8″, 340 lbs Ross “Grizzly” Clifton. Shamrock, in response to criticism of the match up, told MMAJunkie:

It’s something that’s interesting to me. I’ve never fought anybody that’s that big before. I’ve seen a lot of other guys that have been able to do that and it just seemed interesting to me. It’s another challenge for me to go in there and fight somebody that big. I’ve done everything in this business, but I haven’t fought anybody that’s 400 pounds. I thought, ‘Man, what a challenge.’

Rumors have also already begun to circulate that regardless of the outcome of Friday Night’s fights, Shamrock’s next opponent could be fellow old timer, David “Tank” Abbot, who will also be in action this weekend, against Mike Bourke.

  • Ross Clifton vs. Ken Shamrock

  • Mike Moreno vs. Gary Padilla
