On this episode of Carson’s Corner, Bob interviews a man who needs no introduction ANYWHERE, Ken Shamrock. During this hour long interview, Shamrock addresses the status of his relationship with Dana White. Has the hatchet been buried between Shamrock and the UFC? What does Shamrock think of the recent class action lawsuit filed against the UFC?
Of course, Ken Shamrock is always grabbing headlines everywhere around the world. The latest headline involves a bare knuckle match between Shamrock and the Irish Traveler and "King of the Gypsies”, James Quinn. How did this fight come together? Who is sanctioning it? Is bare knuckle fighting safer than MMA with gloves?
Over the years, Shamrock has taken a great detail of criticism from MMA fans and writers. When the fight with Quinn was announced, many of the so called MMA news sites ran the headline, "50 year old Ken Shamrock," as if Ken were too old to compete. One critic wrote, "Towards the end of his career, Shamrock was often a sorry sight, and became synonymous with being on the receiving end of beatdowns." What is Ken’s response to all the harsh criticism he has faced? How is he feeling physically compared to the Ken Shamrock of yesteryear?
Ken’s storied career in the then WWF continues to draw the interest of many fans around the world. When asked, what’s the maddest you have been at a person you didn’t actually beat up, Ken reflects upon the infamous incident with the Nasty Boys. Did they really plan to throw Shamrock off of a hotel balcony? If so, how did Shamrock respond? Will we see Shamrock in the WWE again? What does he think of Triple H? How would a fight go down between the two?
Also, what is Ken Shamrock’s advice to Jon Jones and CM Punk?
This hour long interview is mandatory for all fans of combat sports and the WWE.
