@amazingangel: How is Ken's health these days anyways? I mean he's 51 but that doesn't mean much if he's still fit and healthy, has he other issues or something?

@amazingangel: @pyrogram: I like Shamrock too but damn, he's 50, I don't wanna see him die in the cage, LOL. Kimbo is a flop, only good at beating up backyard brawlers, but against proper fighters? Flop. But if his boxing career has shown us anything is that he has crazy KO power, and at 50 years old, Shamrock's chin has turned not even to glass, but dust. I still think Shamrock'll win though. I expect him to go in there, avoid the stand-up war at all costs, get the takedown, fight for positioning on the ground, get the submission win, get booed because the crowd wanted (don't they always?) a brawl, then get paid ;)

@pyrogram: No I'm just mainly ripping on him for still competing at this age, I mean props to him for being healthy enough but I just think he should've found some other means of making money by now.

He was a near top level pro wrestler for crying out loud, if he'd saved that money effectively he could still be living on it.

@la_espada: I am curious though, I know 50 year old's in my MA class that don't have glass chins and can still do marathons, they are fitter than me and I'm only 19 xD Has Ken got some other issues that make you think he's greatly disadvantaged? Because Kimbo sucks, I don't see him winning unless he goes berserk backyard brawler and tires/overwhelms Ken somehow.

@amazingangel: @pyrogram: Yeah but those 50 year olds weren't in MMA at the professional level since 93 ;) Those many years of competition at the highest level, all those shots he took (he's basically brain damaged), its worn on him a lot. Add to the fact that Ken also tied some professional wrestling which had him do those crazy stunts that injured him even more, he's a shell of who he once was. And his chin is just gone. Chins tend to disappear with age, and 22 years of being hit in the head by top-flight fighters tends to turn them into glass. He's been through too many injuries and is too old to be fighting. But this is almost like the perfect match-up for him stylistically.

Kimbo might have a lot of KO power but his chin isn't all that great, granted Ken isn't going to stand and trade with him. Age has taken away both his chin and his power while Kimbo at least still has power. But that's where the disadvantages for Kimbo end. At 50, I think Ken actually has better cardio than Kimbo. Kimbo's big and very heavily muscled, muscles need oxygen and if he tries to go hard right from the beginning, he's gonna gas. Kimbo also has no takedown defense and his ground game is a myth until we see it. All Ken has to do is clinch him to the fence and smother him for maybe two rounds until Kimbo gases badly, then he can get a trip takedown, and from there its Ken's game. Ken is really good at submissions, 22 career submission victories speak for themselves. He'll either choke Kimbo out or collect a limb.

@la_espada: Maybe, also Kim is 41, and I am sure Ben is so much fitter and healthier than he is, neither of them are relatively young xD Ken is better, more technical and smarter fighter, he'll really only lose if he tries stand fighting, and who knows, due to Kimbo's boxing style, he may even lose stand up if he can't actually land that finishing blow, although I doubt Ken will evade all of them, he IS only human xD.

#3168 Posted by ia_espada (4823 posts) - - Show Bio

@pyrogram: Neither's young, true, but Ken has way more fights professionally, and has been fighting professionally for much longer, so he's racked up a lot more injuries and trauma to the head. His body's so crippled that he can't even shoot for takedowns properly anymore, LOL. Ken fights almost like a striker now because it hurts too much for him to use the shoot wrestling style he learned from his time in Japan. But he is still a much better fighter than Kimbo, much smarter too. I have Ken winning the fight because experience matters and he used to be the best fighter in the world and even in his worst day is still a better grappler than Kimbo. But hey, people get caught by that one KO shot all the time in fights so who knows, LOL.

@la_espada: One of the first fights I ever saw was Ken vs Gracie and that 30 minute superfight or something afterwards. Back when I first got into UFC and saw the old ones, oh man, he was fun to watch right at the start xD

@pyrogram: Ken Shamrock was one of the first fighters I remember watching, he really looked like the most dangerous man in the world. I also remember Dan Severn and of course, Royce Gracie. I remember when Gracie was going around choking out everyone everywhere, LOL. Its a shame when you think about how the Gracie family has fallen so much since.

@la_espada: At the start of UFC Shamrock looked like a movie megastar superhero fighter and I expected him to win every single fight xD Do you remember... What's his name, Kimo something? That religious guy who once entered the ring on a fking cross LOL! He gave Gracie/Ken a hell of a fight, I forgot who, but that religious guy was fcking insane.

You know, my uncle does Gracie Ju Jitsu and I look into it, watch videos of it, and train it occasionally and it's really not that bad as an art. It's just a shame how cult-like the Gracie family is, and how dogmatic, even like smug/pretentious they think they are xD

@pyrogram: I remember that guy! Kimo Leopoldo. I remember he was giving Royce all kinds of trouble until Royce scored the armbar. Needless to say, I thought he was crazy for carrying that cross when he fought Royce, LOL.

Gracie Jiu Jitsu, its pretty good. But the Gracie family is as you said, super dogmatic and smug. They really believe all you need is BJJ which is crazy. BJJ didn't stop Frank Mir from getting smashed into the mat by Brock Lesnar, LMAO.

@la_espada: I kind of rooted for him, he was so insane and entertaining. It really showed that Royce was able to maintain his calm and such and win that fight via armbar. I thought Royce was going to get undone when he was exposed to the craziness of Kimo.

Yeah, a lack of anything outside of BJJ (even if GJJ teaches punch blocks etc) will get you knocked the F out. Having an understanding of the principles is a requirement in any situation and JJ is amazing for that, but how the Gracie's convince THEMSELVES it's all you need is.... I swear, sometimes the Gracie's act like they are on drugs with their self-hype.

@pyrogram: I think it showed everyone that in addition to being slick with his submissions, Royce had the mentality of a champion, belt or not. But... Kimo was super entertaining, LOL. He was like a cartoon character.

No doubt. BJJ didn't get Vitor Belfort the win against Jon Jones even after securing an armbar. BJJ didn't give Frank Mir a second victory over Brock Lesnar. BJJ didn't give Nogueira the win against Cain Velasquez. BJJ is a supplementary art. In this day and age with fighting evolving so much, you have no choice as a fighter but to be well rounded. Being one dimensional is no good. Even if you're a Gracie.
