Ken Shamrock Fires Back At Joe Rogan For Claiming Kimbo Fight Was “Fixed”

Following Bellator 138 earlier this month, UFC commentator Joe Rogan went public with his belief that the Ken Shamrock vs. Kimbo Slice main event was a “fixed fight,” an accusation that “The World’s Most Dangerous Man” doesn’t seem to appreciate very much.

“Why in the world would someone in Joe Rogan’s position sound off on something like that when there’s no proof, when it’s just speculation of his thoughts of what he thought,” Shamrock said to Submission Radio of the accusation. “That could literally ruin somebody’s career. That’s like me going out there and telling his wife that he cheated on his wife, yet I don’t have any proof, but someone just said something.”

Shamrock continued, “Those are things, when you say them being in a professional position where you have the people’s ear and you have a responsibility to make sure that whatever you say, you can back up, that you could prove, and not just say it because you think it. Because you ruin people’s lives on something that you have no proof. And he’s wrong what he’s saying. He’s wrong what he’s saying, and therefore he could have ruined my career and my life on what he’s saying, when there’s no proof to it.”

Shamrock was then outright asked if the fight was a work, which prompted him to swear on the life of his family that it was not.

“I swear on everything that I love, my family, my god, everything that I love — that fight was not fixed,” said Shamrock. “And the people that are saying it are saying it because they’re angry or they lost a bet, because they bet in Vegas, or they’re just trying to be hurtful. That’s it.”
