Feb. 13 WarGods and Ken Shamrock Productions event at the Fresno Arena in Fresno, Calif., features Frank Shamrock in the main event and fellow UFC trailblazer David "Tank" Abbott in the co-headline bout.

After the "The Valentine"s Eve Massacre" show, a Shamrock vs. Abbott fight could take place in April.

According to an official announcement from KSP, the Shamrock-Abbott fight is in the "final stages of negotiations."

It's tentatively planned for late April in Reno, Nev.

"There are a lot of fans that have followed this for years, die-hard fans, who want to see this and reminisce a little bit," stated Shamrock, who turns 45 next month.

First up, though, Shamrock (26-13-2) meets Ross Clifton (6-8), a super-heavyweight who's 1-5 in his past six fights. All six of Clifton's victories have ended in the first round -- three in less than a minute.

Abbott (9-14), meanwhile, returns to action for the first time since his February 2008 loss to Kevin "Kimbo Slice" Ferguson. Abbott, who debuted at UFC 6 and fought for the heavyweight title at UFC 15, has lost eight of his past nine fights (all in the first round). He now takes on Mike Bourke (8-11-1), a King of the Cage veteran who's 1-7 (with one no-contest) in his past nine fights.

Looks like Shamrock wants to get a win or two before he finally retires.

Yeah, well you'll all be sorry for mocking Ken Shamrock when he takes the UFC light heavyweight title.

I love retirement matches.

Hopefully in this case, the winner and loser have to retire.
