Ken Shamrock facing Ian Freeman in July for “Legends Title”

Ian Freeman - Cage RagTwo of MMA’s pioneers have decided to end their retirement in order to fight one another this summer, as a match-up between Ken Shamrock (28-15-2) and Ian Freeman (19-7-1) has materialized under the UK’s Ultimate Cage Fighting Championship banner. Specifically, the scrap will take place on July 27 in Domcaster, England. Neither man has fought in years but an apparent grudge between the two has drawn them from the sidelines for at least one more scrap.

MMAOpinion was first to report the rumble. The company’s “Legends World Title” will also apparently be on the line.

Shamrock was last seen losing in the first frame of a November 2010 tilt, dropping him to 2-3 since his final stint in the UFC. For many years Shamrock was seen as one of MMA’s top talents, though the 49-year old has been on a major skid over the last decade with only three victories notched on his record. 25 of his wins have featured some form of stoppage.

Meanwhile, “The Machine” hasn’t set foot in the cage since 2008. That being said, Freeman is technically on a two-fight winning streak and is perhaps best known for beating Frank Mir at UFC 38.

    Somebody on here owes me $100 if this fight goes through.
    What was that Mr.’ know it all ‘douchebag’s name who used to post on here all the time in the late 1990’s ?
    He went by “Burger’n’ Fryes” or”Gracie Spoon” or “Tank- Salot” or something like that?

    I think I started lurking around ’07, so I have no idea who you’re talking about. But I get the feeling y’all had some “lively” debates.
