Ken Shamrock Wants Royce Gracie At UFC 134, Tank Abbott Wants Brock Lesnar

Royce Gracie isn’t the only UFC pioneer hoping to get one more fight in the Octagon. Ken Shamrock wants in too, and claims if he and Royce were to rematch on the upcoming UFC Rio card, it would be the biggest pay-per-view to date.

“There’s no doubt in my mind, and anyone else will tell you that if this fight was to happen, this would be the biggest pay-per-view to date, but they will not let that happen. [The UFC] would have to swallow their egos for that to happen and these guys have too big of egos to let that happen,” he said. “I love to fight. I want to fight. I think staying within my capabilities of fighting people who were from my time…Trying to fight these young kids, obviously I’m a bit too old for that, but if I stay within my realm of things I think fans would enjoy it, I would enjoy it and I think it’s good for the sport.”

The best part of the story is why he wants the fight. He owes the UFC a ton of money in legal fees from a lawsuit he lost to them and figures this would repay the debt. Something tells me the only response Shamrock is going to get from the UFC at this point is, “Nice try Shamrock, where’s our money?”

Next up, we have Tank Abbott who says he would knock out Brock Lesnar in 10 seconds.
