The brothers Shamrock are fixin to step in to the cage against one another.

given ken's fragility and Franks penchant for running his mouth, this is still far from a certainty.

However, its exciting as hell, i only wish this was 6 or 7 years ago Here it is

yeah, this doenst leave the first rd, and the shamrock not named ken will have his hand raised......this i think is a bit on the dark side/wwe style of a bout, but for some reason i really want to see it

Thats a good point, maybe at 205...Ken can get down that low pretty easy and apparently Frank walks around pretty heavy because he was allegedly cleared by the athletic commission as a heavyweight when he tried to step up to face Kimbo. I doubt Frank will worry about gettin a lower catch weight due to his ego (deservedly so in this case) his cardio will already be 100x better than kens at any weight

this sort of makes me sad....
I'll watch it but the dislike they seem to have for one another truly makes me sad. Brothers gotta hug

Exciting as hell? Are you new to the sport? This is a circus fight....and a bad one at that. Poor Taste...Overage fighter. We as mma fans should not hype it.

I doubt this fight will ever happen, and IMO this is not really a fight i am interested in seeing.....It will just be a one sided destruction of a Legend.....Ken just needs to retire and save what little pride he has left......

Well lets see, two ex UFC champs, adopted brothers, and legit bad blood....yeah i must be new to the sport to get excited for a fight that people have been itching to see for a solid decade......
nd overage fighter? its not like kens facing a 28 year old champion in his prime, and he'll have a big weight advantage. Dont get me wrong frank will win. but this isnt a forgone conclusion.
And yes I, as an MMA fan, am happy to see two veterans who fought for peanuts during most of their careers get a major payday, i geuss that makes me a traitor to the sport.

i dont have a problem with circus fights. canseco got beat up and it was a good time. one of the funniest moments ever in mma was when kimbo got 1-punched, actually maybe watching tim sylvia get owned by ray mercer was more funny - tho i didnt see it live. all im trying to say is that the sport CAN be about fun and entertainment also. like on that DREAM 9 card there were the freakshow bouts, and then there were also legit technical bouts too, more of them actually. obviously i dont want mma to turn into the wwe, but i think it is fine to have some drama fights and pure entertainment fights in the mix
