Ken Shamrock's days as an elite-level fighter are over. The 45-year-old is comfortable admitting to that reality.

But as Shamrock (26-13-2) recently told MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com), "The World's Most Dangerous Man" feels he has done enough for the growth of MMA to warrant his continued pursuit of an active career.

No disrespect to Ken but im at the point where I dont care if he fights or not. He has done a lot for the sport sure but im just not interested anymore there are no match ups out there for Ken in my opinion!!!!

I think he should just coach his team of guys help them be the best they are capable of being.

Props to Ken.. The man wants to fight still who are we to tell him he has to quit? He accepts the fact he is not going to be a top contender and appears to be interested in fighting guys more his current ability level.. and for that I so Good on you ken.. give the people a show and do what you enjoy. .

I say go for it Ken. I mean just cause he can't hang with the best of the best doesn't mean he can't fight. I mean look at Severn he has fought at the lower levels for a long time and no one is getting down on him for it. Although Severn is still WINNING.

I'd like to see Ken keep fighting but at the same time I don't want him to get messed up or anything.

Exactly, at what point does the body just say F@$K YOU!!! KEN? I hope he doesn't get hurt but the reality is that it could happen.
