UFC Hall of Famer Ken Shamrock lost to journeyman, Mike Bourke last night in South Africa. In the second round Shamrock dropped Bourke with a big right and injured his leg in a scramble causing the ref to stop the fight and declare Bourne the winner. |
“The World’s Most Dangerous Man” has been anything but after his return to MMA following a year long suspension due to steroids. In July Pedro Rizzo walked through Shamrock earning a 1st round TKO win. Shamrock then defeated Johnathan Ivey in October in a fight where Ivey was inadvertently poked in the eye in the third round and was not given time to recover. Shamrock won the last round and the fight. Now with his loss to Bourne Shamrock’s career is on life support and hopefully he will have enough dignity to retire before he becomes an even bigger joke.
Although I don't agree with any writer giving advice to any fighter. I know Ken is broke and needs to earn a living. And if his stint on TUF has taught me anything, he isn't the best coach either.
If he can continue to travel around the world to different MMA organizations fighting middle of the road type of guys, I would be happy with that....people can diss him all they want, but how else is he suppose to earn a living?
I feel bad for the guy and I hope he finds a way to earn a living outside the octagon, but I expect him to keep doing what he likes to do. I just hope he gets well soon and wasn't too badly injured.
This is the only article I could find on this event which happened yesterday. I am sure there will be more information to come soon enough.
