Chip off the Ol’ Block: EliteXC Signs Ken and Ryan Shamrock
Ken Shamrock is emerging from his unofficial retirement, and he’s bringing his son Ryan with him. Elite Xtreme Combat, a California-based MMA organization that airs on Showtime, today announced that the promotion signed both 43-year-old Ken Shamrock (26-12-2) and the his 19-year-old son Ryan (1-0) to multi-fight deals. Terms of the fighters’ deals were not disclosed. Additionally, EliteXC announced that both fighters will be part in a March 8 event in London, England. “EliteXC Presents: Cage 25” takes place at Wembley Arena. (ProElite Inc., EliteXC’s parent company, recently purchased the U.K.-based Cage Rage organization.) Ken, one of the first inductees into the UFC Hall of Fame, has been fighting professionally for nearly 14 years and competed in the very first UFC event. The submission specialist left the UFC for six years but ultimately returned to fight Tito Ortiz and then to coach a team on “The Ultimate Fighter 3.” He’s since severed ties with the UFC, and in an explosive interview with MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) back in October, he claimed that UFC President Dana White forced him into retirement and that he never intended to quit fighting. Ryan, a 135-pound fighter, made his MMA debut back in August and defeated 31-year-old (and fellow UFC newcomer) Josh Besneatte with a first-round submission at an event produced by his father’s fight organization. The fight is available at YouTube.

White has UFC as dominant MMA force
You blow your nose with a Kleenex, you Xerox a document. Sure, there are plenty of tissue makers and even more companies producing copy machines, but Kleenex and Xerox achieved the unthinkable — the brand name supplanted the product. UFC president Dana White would love to see that develop with his company in 2008. He's close to achieving the feat. Many casual fans and non-mixed martial arts media newcomers often tag the entire sport "UFC." Gary Shaw of Elite XC knows there's a lot at stake this year. He would like to see UFC go the way of America Online. AOL was a juggernaut in the late '90s until the dreaded C-word — competition — reared its ugly head.

Former UFC fighter Scott Smith (11-4 MMA, 1-3 UFC) has signed a long-term contract with Elite Xtreme Combat, the organization’s parent announced on Wednesday. ProElite Inc. also announced that Smith will make his EliteXC debut in February. Smith is perhaps best known for his stint on a special “comeback” season of “The Ultimate Fighter” and a subsequent knockout at the show’s live finale — which appeared to play a major part in EliteXC’s offer to the fighter.
