EliteXC Executive Gary Shaw admitted in a conference call this week that he has held discussions about hosting a fight between brothers Ken and Frank Shamrock. This adds fuel to a fire that the two adopted brothers have stoked for years.
“I talked to my team about it,” Shaw said. “I would love to do brother versus brother. It would be a great promotion.”

Yeah that would be great! Frank's gonna whoop him though. So are they blood brothers that we're adopted or only related through the adoption? They look just alike and i guess i just assumed they were.

EliteXC is throwing sum great cards 2gether! They look to def be UFC biggest compition.

Ken's dad adopted Frank. They would probably fight at a catch weight is what I assume, although Frank has fought at 205 before it was a long time ago. This is the type of fight that Pride would have loved. I don't know what it is about the Japanease fans but they have a knack for figuring out what the freak fights are and making them happen. I'd definately pay to watch this if Ken would go through with it.

my god i never thought about this fight before but i would stil consider it a dream match. neither one of them would want to lose so badly theyd both work there ass off and put on a wicked show. you know ken would wanna finish it quick but frank would want to humiliate em. my bet is that frank goes up to lhw. ken to old to kut that much and this way it keeps franks title safe so that they can still market em if he loses. everyone will be like, "hes a natural middle weight so it might have been different if ken went down" or sum other bull***t like that

Me...I don't know what it is about our country, but I don't want to see brothers fight each other. I don't care how much they hate each other.

I have a brother, and I'd never fight him in a legitimate match where we are trying to physically hurt each other. I don't care how much I hated him, or how much money they gave me.

I know they aren't blood brothers, but they are as close as you can get. They wouldn't call each other "brother" if they didn't feel that way.

How come nobody is even giving The World's Most Dangerous Man a chance in this one? Im not saying I would pick him to win, but I would pick him to make it a good fight and he probably has more KO power than Frank, so I would still give him a chance.

Either way, this is definitely a can't miss fight if it happens. I am liking Gary Shaw more and more with each event. Im not saying the UFC should be looking over their shoulder, but... wait, yes I am. The UFC needs to be looking over their shoulder!

WAR SHAMROCK!!!
But seriously, they looked like they were fine with each other when their teams met in the IFL.
Is there bad blood?

Am i the only one that feels like Ken was paid to throw the fight to Rich Franklin!? I feel that Rich is way better than him, but that stupid stumble he did looked like he was still in WWF. Looked just like bad acting

My Bad....just saw where the video was posted and u guys were already talking about it! Disregard

It wouldn't even be a close match....Frank would dominate ken probably KTFO of him real real early. I'd still watch it for sure though
