Ken Shamrock – The World’s Most Entertainerous Man
Tuesday, June 16, 2015 — I almost fell out of my chair when I heard Susanville’s Ken Shamrock, The World’s Most Dangerous Man — climbs back into the Mixed Martial Arts octagon to fight Kimbo Slice in St. Louis, Missouri on Friday, June 19. Yes, Bellator 138: “Unfinished Business” on Spike TV.
I remember a somber interview I did with Shamrock at the old Lassen County Times building on Gay Street nearly a decade ago a few days after the UFC Hall of Famer’s third and final fight against Tito Oritz — one Ortiz won by a technical knockout, a fight some contend the referee stopped way too early. The bout between the two bitter rivals drew the UFC’s largest television audience to that date. Tickets to the live event sold out in just two days.
