for a while i kind of lost faith in Frank... but he is back.
Frank is one of my favorite fighters because of what he represents and that is the martial arts.
people say MMA and dont even know what it means... they say Mixed MARTIAL ARTS but they dont know what it means.
There is no respect for the art that is actually a way of life, a warriors way of life.
You go to "MMA" gyms now and all you see is a bunch of meatheads wanting to learn how to kick asses and see how many tattoo's they can get to look tough and wear tapout, and a bunch of guys teaching with the same atitude.
Im glad Frank is back and im glad he is speaking out and representing.
way to go Frankie sorry i lost faith for a minute there

I dont know where you have trained but most of the places Ive been it isn't like that at all. There are some with tats but they are for the most part very mild mannered and soft spoken. The meatheads usually dont last long when they realize that strenght isnt all its about.
Man Im starting to think you may have been picked on and took it too hard bro. But Im glad SCAMROCKS inspired you.

I don't know know what's up with Shamrock. After the Renzo incident and relentless childish smack talk on the youtube, I was sick of Frank. After this win, though, for some reason I can't help but sort of like the guy again even though I'm not sure I want to.
Diaz has started talking smack so maybe we'll see that fight eventually.

Say what you want about him, but the guy is a freak of nature. Very few have been blessed with his gifts and most forget that he is still relatively young. He is several years younger than Chuck and Randy.

Frank might act like a child and all that, but he is a great well rounded fighter. However, I think if he is in there with some ofthe top @ 185 he will be in trouble.
I have heard about the nick Diaz trash talking, and Diaz wont stand a chance. 185 is way too big for him

im not sure but i think Bass knocked him out of the ring. He can fight and he put Zinoviav or however you spell it out of fighting with a broken neck. however after his near loss to Tito he sat back on his heels and made out like a bandit on siminars and crap. hes not like the iceman when it comes to testing himself thats for sure.

Oh yeah, they both ended up out of the ring!

The caption says Pride fight, but it was definitely Pancrase.

i think that was the first time they fought. the next fight frank gets a shin to the head and sends him out of the ring.
Im not sure but I think Metzger plays with his hair more than Frank and Ken runs a close third lol ... homos

With regard to Frank, it is highly doubtful he will ever fight a top tier 185lber. But that is Frank. I dont think he would stand a chance against the top guys at this point. Him v. A. Silva would get ugly IMO

I think Frank could take Silva or Franklin, but not Hendo or Filho. I'm not sure how he'd do against Kang. The thing about the MW division is that almost none of the top 5 guys have actually fought each other.

i dont know why everyone is up Dan Henderson's ass.. the only reason he beat Wanderlei is because Wand was in the hospital the night before with a 104 degree fever. Wanderlei whooped Henderson's ass before.
Btw Frank already beat "Hendo" in a grappling match fairly quickly.

Here's what Dana White thinks about Frank and Tito.
ESPN.com: Did you watch Showtime EliteXC's Phil Baroni versus Frank Shamrock recently?
DW: I had dinner at the Palms, and I had them put it on in the room because I wanted to see Baroni knock his head off. It didn't work out that way.
ESPN.com: What did you think of their skill levels?
DW: They both looked bad. Phil's a good friend of mine, so it's unfortunate. Frank Shamrock is not going to fight anybody near the top-10 level.
ESPN.com: You wouldn't be tempted to bring back Frank for a big event?
DW: Who knows? But Frank is such a moron. He's so hard to deal with. He really is a jackass. If I could get it done, maybe I would. Look at me and Tito. We don't get along at all. You won't ever find two people who work together talk more [expletive] about each other. Tito's an idiot. He's a complete, absolute moron. But we can do business.
ESPN.com: So why not kill two birds with one stone. How about Tito versus Frank Shamrock?
DW: Frank Shamrock would never fight Tito Ortiz. Tito would crush him. Frank's not going to fight anybody serious. He's going to very carefully handpick his opponents, and continue to play the smoke and mirrors game.
