MMA Career

Shamrock competed in the first Ultimate Fighting Championship show in November 1993 where he progressed to the semi-finals, losing to eventual tournament winner Royce Gracie. Afterwards, Shamrock vowed to avenge his loss to Gracie. However, it would be nearly a year and a half later before he got his chance. At UFC 5 in May 1995, Shamrock and Gracie squared off in the UFC's first ever "Superfight." Unfortunately, the match did not live up to expectations. At UFC 5 the UFC had instituted time limits and Shamrock and Gracie fought for the entire allotted time of 30 minutes along with 5 minutes of overtime before the match was declared a draw. Shamrock then defeated Dan Severn for the newly-created Superfight belt, successfully defending this title against Oleg Taktarov and Kimo Leopoldo. In 1996 he lost the belt via judges decision in a rematch with Severn. As of 2006, Ken is still making occasional appearances in the UFC.

Shamrock's Lion's Den has engaged in a feud with former UFC Light Heavyweight champion, Tito Ortiz. Ortiz defeated Lion's Den fighters Jerry Bolander and Guy Mezger, eventually facing Shamrock in one of the highest-selling mixed martial arts Pay Per View events of all time in the United States.

On October 24, 2005 Shamrock lost to fellow mixed martial arts legend Kazushi "The Gracie Hunter" Sakuraba in PRIDE: Fully Loaded, by TKO. The decision to stop the fight was controversial to some, including Shamrock, since he was able to get right back up after being knocked down. However, Ken did turn his back to Sakuraba and wasn't intelligently defending himself, so the referee stopped the fight. His own brother Frank Shamrock commented on the stoppage in an interview with the site Sherdog.com: "…if you’re sleeping with your head through the second rope, you’re in a bad way. He got clocked. He went down. According to the rules he was no longer defending himself and that’s the end of the fight. Was it early? Sure it was early. But was he getting his ass kicked? Yeah. It just depends on how you want to look at it. I tried to look at it abstractly and I saw a guy sleeping with his head through the second rope. That’s not good, because if I’m there, please somebody stop this."[1]


On November 19, 2005 at UFC 56, Dana White, the UFC president, announced that Shamrock would be one of the coaches (along with Tito Ortiz) for the upcoming third season of The Ultimate Fighter. At UFC 61 Shamrock and Ortiz had a rematch of their UFC 40 fight. 19 November 2005 (Saturday) In a speech to U.S. troops in South Korea, U.S. President George W.

On July 8, 2006 Shamrock faced Ortiz for the second time at UFC 61- Bitter Rivals and lost in 1:18 of the first round by technical knockout called by referee Herb Dean. Early in the first round Ortiz successfully secured a double leg takedown on Shamrock, lifting him up and slamming him to the mat. Although Shamrock was now on his back in a disadvantageous position, he got Ortiz into his full guard. This, however, did not stop Ortiz from using one of his hallmark ground and pound tactics of maneuvering his opponent against the fence of the Octagon and then striking from above. After maneuvering Shamrock to the fence, Ortiz landed a barrage of five elbow strikes to Shamrock’s head, prompting Dean to stop the fight.

According to NSAC rules, the referee is required to stop a fight when a fighter is not intelligently defending himself. Nevertheless, the referee’s decision appeared unpopular with the crowd as evidenced by the abundance of boos which followed. The stoppage was also controversial because a seemingly uninjured Shamrock got up within seconds, visibly shocked and angry at the referee’s decision. He appeared somewhat uninjured and attempted to assert this to the officials and the crowd in an attempt to continue the fight. It was to no avail. The decision was upheld and Shamrock was escorted out of the Octagon.
