Spurned Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Hall of Famer Ken Shamrock -- once known by most mixed martial arts (MMA) fans as "The World's Most Dangerous Man" thanks to his exploits inside the confines of a cage -- has seemingly embarked on a new career.
Shamrock, apparently, now works as a bodyguard, giving his old nickname a whole new meaning. Indeed, the 49-year-old former World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) superstar was spotted during the CES convention in Las Vegas, Nevada, earlier this week on the security detail for the 50 Cent entourage.
And Shamrock later confirmed via Twitter that he's now working for Pro-tectGlobal, a company that provides private security for several "high-end clients," including hip-hop mogul -- and boxing promoter -- Mr. Curtis Jackson:
KEN SHAMROCK @ShamrockKen
@50cent - it's been a pleasure working with you and your team, you are by far one of the classiest gents I have ever worked with. God bless
The fact that Shamrock is finally giving up on fighting for a living and taking his "talents" elsewhere is long overdue.
Shamrock's money issues are well-documented. And those financial troubles most recently surfaced when UFC President Dana White explained the reason Shamrock had been publicly thrashing him through the media, warning the "Lion's Den" member he was coming for $175,000 in attorney's fee's that Shamrock is ordered to pay.
