Former UFC light heavyweight champion and current Strikeforce middleweight champion Frank Shamrock announced in a new interview with MMAWeekly.com that he will be fighting his older, adoptive brother Ken Shamrock during the first quarter of 2009.
“Oh yeah. Unless I die, it’s going to happen,” Frank Shamrock is quoted as saying in the interview.
The bout is expected to be made available through pay-per-view.
Shamrock, a middleweight, also revealed that the fight against his brother will be contested at light heavyweight (186-205 pounds). Ken Shamrock has competed primarily as a heavyweight but his most recent bouts have been at light heavyweight.
“I do know the weight will be at 205,” the younger Shamrock told MMAWeekly.com. “That’s what Ken wanted. The where doesn’t matter. The when will be the first quarter of 2009. The how will be right hand, left hook, right hand, and then that will be it.”
