Frank Shamrock Sticks It To Dana White Again

Frank Shamrock and UFC president Dana White will never sit down and have a friendly meal together.

The two have never seen eye-to-eye, and that doesn’t look to change in the near future with both remaining stead-fast in their ways.

Shamrock was a recent guest on Rebellion MMA Radio where he discussed not being included in the UFC’s Hall of Fame. As you can imagine, Shamrock – the adopted brother of UFC Hall of Famer Ken Shamrock – had an interesting take.

First off, I don’t think the hall of fame has any credibility unless I’m in it. I was the first champion ever and set two world records. I’ve been pioneering for this sport since before there were weight classes and gloves. So, it kinda looks to me like the whole hall of fame is kind of flim-flam and it’s up to Dana’s own jock as to who goes in.

Shamrock was the first-ever UFC light heavyweight champion. He is currently an announcer for Showtime’s MMA coverage.

It was also announced recently that Tito Ortiz would be inducted into the UFC’s Hall of Fame at UFC 148.

    I agree with Ken being in there, but I have mixed feeling about Frank being in there….

  • Ed Lib

    The first UFC champ is called Royce Gracie. Period.

    I agree there hall of fame is limited to there best sellers.. except randy couture.  Brock lesnar was good but if he gets hall of fame after the shortest career ever i can think of another 10 that deserve it.

      Brock doesn’t deserve it he didn’t do anything for the sport except sell tickets and have a name from a previous career

      fuck Lesnar! wake up, dude! the guy is 5-3!

    Frank is such a hard case to decide on. He only had like 5 UFC fights, but they were all for the belt and he never lost in the octagon. He might be an MMA pioneer, but it’s debatable of he is UFC hall of fame material or not.

    Not sure what all the fuss is about with Brock. Dana loves the guy because he brought more exposure to the sport and made a bunch of money for the UFC. All true fans know he isn’t a hall of famer.

      My points exactly….

    I think B.J. Penn will be the next inductee…and as for Frank, his time is too long gone and I don’t think he fought long enough to secure a spot.
