MMA legend Frank Shamrock announces his retirement from fighting at Strikeforce “Fedor vs Werdum”. At the age of 37, Shamrock will now focus his efforts as a full time broadcaster for Strikeforce.
Kinda bummed about this. Frank is one of my favorites. But props to the guy for knowing when to step down.
I whonder if how Lidells last few fights went had anything to do with Frank making this choice. Not too long ago Frank said that he was gonna fight the winner of the Le/smith rematch. Must have been a recent decision.
He needs to comeback now to sell tickets especially since Fedor, Hendo, and Mousasi lost. Not to mention the possibility of losing Shields. Not that Frank is a huge attraction but I'd be lyin if I said I wouldn't tune in to watch him fight again.
uh-hhh…didn't Cung le announce Frank's retirement a couple years back ?! jk. Wish Chuck could have shown this
level of recognition…although,I still believe he will own Tito for life. Kudos to Frank for doing this while he can still speak in complete and coherent sentences.
Anything to get out of fighting his big bro who has been calling Frank out for years, pathetic, because it won't last, he'll be back…
I don't think Ken could could catch Frank, but I know for sure he doesn't want anything to do with Cung Le again.
