Gotta go about 5 minutes in...he talks about his rumored fight with Mike Bisping, Dana White's hate towards the IFL, and the idea of a fighters union. Sounds like he's pumped and ready to go!

I found it, but your link is not working. Kens is no longer with the UFC. It clears up a lot of the Shamrock v. Bisping garbage.

What I still don't understand is the Bisping Hamill match was out. we talked about it here and it was up for us to pick. Then a week or two later the Shamrock v. Bisping rumor came up. I don't think the UFC started the rumor because they, most likely, had the Bisping v. Hamill match signed. Ken is pointing the finger at Dana White and the UFC, but I don't see them leaking this rumor. Ken seemed to wonder why he would fight Bisping, so I don't think he started it. I would look at Kens lawyer/PR guy or poor journalism.

Ken is pissed with the UFC and this is only going to cause Ken to start to bad mouth the UFC more than he did in this interview. It was a buisness decision to let Ken go and he has to understand that. Why pay Ken for one fight when you can pay for probably 10 up and coming fighters for the same amount. Best of luck to Ken in whatever he does.

Regardless of his bad fighting, he is stilla legend and surely brings in more PPV's than 10 no-names.

Very true, UFC 40 really turned the business around, and aside from that he has been the main event another 8 times. I had a feeling that they would keep there grudge against the IFL, even against Ken... expect to see an IFL superfight, perhaps against Frank...
