Apart from the free seminars he has been putting on, and running the business, we were able to ask him 3 highly requested questions from readers of DreamFighters.com.

Gracie is actually about the only style matchup that Ken has a shot at anymore. He's got the experiance to better defend those submissions. And he won't have to worry about Gracie knocking him out. (A real plus since he's 0-6 in his last six fights, all coming by way of 1st ound KO/TKO.)

He doesn't stand much of a chance either way, but at least its not a striker. I don't really care for Shamrock, and whose to stop him from competing. But I don't exactly want to see his head fall off his shoulders either.

Gotta give him credit for still wanting to fight, but he's just not winning and getting old, tarnishing his name.

i guess people who are uneducated in the history of mma, think it's ok to hate on two of the most important fighters. if it wasn't for these guys you wouldn't have half the guys there are today.

tards will be tards

Not discounting what Shamrock or Gracie have done for the sport. However, both are way past their primes and we don't need to see these guys fight anymore. Induct them into Hall of Fame, they can continue to run camps that produce great fighters - but there is really no reason to see them fight anymore - period. Look what Hughes did to Gracie when they fought and then look at what Alves did to Hughes Saturday night.

Did anyone discredit them for what they have done in the sport? No, the guy is 2-8 in his last 10 and has been stopped 7 of those 8 losses. And he has been stopped in his last 5. Every fighter has a time when they should hang up the gloves, there is no shame in aging. He has done enough for the sport and isnt doing anything by keeping fighting.

You sure proved that tards will be tards.

Wait...I have a great idea for a fight Helio Gracie vs. Masahiko Kimura. 2 legends going at it for another epic battle.

Good hell let the guy fight, I dont understand why everyone is bashing him.....did anyone stop to think that maybe he just wants to fight? Maybe its something he loves to do? I doubt Shamrock is in it to become a world champion. I used to be great in highschool baseball but that is long gone, does that mean I cant still put the glove on and play a game now and again?

Im Not Even Sure He Can Bust A Grape In A Fruit Fight Or Even Beat A Pin Cushion...I Go Cushion Via Knock Out First Round...Ken Throws A Punch...Slips...Hits His Head On The Pin Cushion Via Knock Out 26 Seconds In

Thank God someone gets it.Sure it's not easy to watch Ken get humbled by the likes of someone like Buzz Berry,but if the guy wants to fight why knock him.You don't have to have an untarnished record and the best skills in the world to be a fighter.Anytime someone loses 2 fights in a row it's time to retire.We herd it for Silva,Liddell,CC,etc.
You can make a better case for Shamrock than you can the rest,but it's not like anyone still considers him a top 10 or anything.Hell the guy probably needs the money.I herd he lost a lot of what he had due to a gambling problem.
