With an expected return to action in March, the rumor mill has been abuzz with speculation on who former Strikeforce middleweight champion and undeniable legend of the game, Frank Shamrock, will be facing off with in his first fight back on the “comeback trail”.

Some of the names being thrown around as of late include Japanese grappling sensation Kazushi Sakuraba, Cung Le, Robbie Lawler, Scott Smith and Dan Henderson to name just a few. And while nothing has been set in concrete as of this writing in regard to who Shamrock will face next, one thing is for certain, and that is that it will undoubtedly be a fight to remember as the thirty-seven year old San Jose resident has a long history in the sport as one of it’s most consistently entertaining athletes.

I wouldn't mind seeing it, at least Frank knows he can't hang with the big boys anymore and has accepted his role in MMA.

A match up of two legends. Just like Couture vs. Coleman and Chuck vs. Tito. Even though these guys are older it's good to see these types of match ups because realistically the sport's progressing forward.

I love the legend match ups. They need to bring Tank Abbott back to fight Cro Cop or Wanderlei

I've been waiting for this fight for a long time now.
Frank has wanted to fight Sakuraba for quiet a few years but was never quiet able to secure a contract with PRIDE that was full proof.

I think this fight would be great for both guys.

Frank was nowhere to be found for this fight ten years ago. Now Frank has much more left than Saku. I don't even want to see it now.

i would like to see this fight.

although on the other hand.every time i see or hear about Sakuraba fighting again i always have a flash back to him getting absolutely pummeled for what seemed like hours an than pulling off the miraculous win (saku vs. smirnovas)
