VIDEO: 51-year-old Ken Shamrock says critics right to question his comeback

The most dangerous 50-something in sport

Ken Shamrock with some refreshing honesty.

The fighter, who still goes by the moniker ‘The Most Dangerous Man in Sport’, is fighting the sprightly Kimbo Slice, 41, at Bellator 138.

Aged 51, Shamrock admits that he cannot say those questioning the validity of, and reasoning behind, the fight are wrong.

He said, ‘I don’t disagree with them as far as, “Ken’s 51, should he be fighting, shouldn’t he be fighting?” because what we have seen in the past has been an aged fighter.

‘What we’ve saying is this – Give me a chance. Allow me to walk in the ring and prove everybody wrong because this is the Ken Shamrock of 15 years ago. This is what I’m training and fighting like.’
