Strikeforce middleweight champion Frank Shamrock is no stranger when it comes to litigation in MMA and according to a new interview with Strikeforce lightweight title contender Josh Thomson on PunchDrunkGamer.com, Shamrock could find himself involved with another lawsuit.

if nothing else this will probably mark the end of frank shamrock sitting in the broadcasters chair. even though it was clear he was kidding i could see how someone could not have gotten the joke and he has no business acting like that. surely if renaldi got as much backlash as he did for a 25 whatever pole then frank will at least not be commenting anymore

Frank Shamrock was classless as a commentator and he didn't leave his oversized ego that has been plaguing him for his entire career at the door. A commentator's role isn't to bring his own agenda to the broadcast. If he hates Thomson so badly, fight him at a catchweight and prove you can beat him, otherwise shut your mouth and do your job.

Personally I am not a big fan of either Josh or Phil so Shamrock can make as much fun of them as he likes in my opinion.

I don't know much about how Frank gets along with other fighters or organizations, so he may be a dick too i'm just not 100% sure.

And suing someone over a comment like that just makes you look like an ass in my opinion. I find often times when someone makes a remark in front of other people about you being gay or fat or whatever it's best to have a good short verbal attack ready and then just walk away, make them look like the duschbag. Suing is just a pussy move.
