    Bashing Dana White and the UFC is apparently Frank Shamrock's way of staying relevant...he was a good fighter but how many interviews have I heard of him bashing Dana...

    Oh look Frank is talking again. Apparently he still has bad feelings for the UFC.

    Frank Shamrock felt like his baby died when Zuffa purchased Strikeforce

    "Strikeforce was my baby. Scott [Coker] and I were sitting, like this, at a coffee shop. He was like, 'Bro, I wanna do MMA.' It was literally like that. And I go, 'Wow, are you kidding me? Do you know hard it is? Do you know how much money it costs and the risk there is?' And he and I were like bros, and we shook hands and said, 'Let's do it!' I put everything into that company. I mean, literally every day of my life, I woke up, and I breathed Strikeforce. It was the first chance I saw, besides the monopoly of the UFC, to give MMA a shot -- to give martial artists, who don't know what MMA is about, a nice picture of it. Scott was a martial artist as a promoter, and he got it. He let me do my thing. I'm an entertainer. I'm a risk taker. When we sold, it was harder than you [Bas Rutten] breaking my face in our first fight. It was like everything ended that day. It was really tough."
    "Strikeforce is coming to an end. They've been consumed by a much larger company. They've got a brand and a direction that doesn't seem like it includes the Strikeforce brand. So, if history repeats itself, I think it's gonna go away, and we're gonna have a new show, a new opportunity, and hopefully a new platform."

    Frank Shamrock and Genki Sudo were pretty much the two fighters that inspired my love for MMA. I'm probably in the minority, but I always enjoy hearing what he has to say...hopefully he can find something he's just as passionate about in the future. I know he's been campaigning for New York to sanction MMA.

    Ditto. Frank is a UFC hall of famer, in my book.

    SF has been kept on life support by Zuffa. There's a reason they were able to purchase it douche.

    Having to purchase premium programming packages is what really hindered me from watching strikeforce. Just can't afford it but I can almost always get a few of the peeps together for a PPV and split the price. Now that so many great fights are being aired on regular network channels I'm happier than a five peckered goat.
