Ken Shamrock finally picked up a much needed win in Lafayette, LA over Johnathan Ivey in the Cajun Dome. The former UFC Hall of Famer lost his comeback fight in July after serving a one year suspension for steroids and needed to get back on track.
Shamrock came into the fight weighing only 209 pounds and gave up almost forty pounds to Ivey. Surprisingly the fight never went to the ground and the less weight may have given Shamrock an advantage with cardio.
The first round was pretty much even and could’ve gone either way. The second was pretty much the same until Ivey knocked down Shamrock at the end of the round which could’ve given the round to Ivey. In the third both guys were feeling each other out until Shamrock accidently poked Ivey in the eye. Ivey took a few minutes to recover but after the eye poke it was all Shamrock as Ivey was having a hard time seeing where the punches where coming from.
“The World’s Most Dangerous Man” picked up a unanimous decision - 30-27 on all three cards.
