Before The Glory: Frank Shamrock vs. Dan Henderson

A look back at a classic grappling match between MMA legends Frank Shamrock and Dan Henderson at “The Contenders” international wrestling.

The videos also features a look back into each fighters training during the late 90′s. Shamrock had just built a lifetime worth of MMA experience in Japan and was now trying to make it in the US.

Dan Henderson was in his wrestling prime, just coming of his Olympic wrestling career. Henderson had little to no MMA experience and looked like a wrestler out of his element as he took on the experienced submission artist.
