Ken Shamrock attacker denies she could have been mistaken for a man
Over the weekend it was reported that Ken Shamrock was breaking up a fight in a mall when a third assailant jumped on his back. Shamrock took the attacked down, and somewhere in there discovered what he thought was a male attacker was actually a she.
Now the attacker has come forward and declared that there is no way she could be mistaken for a male.
The evidence is mixed.
Her name is Melinda Garcia ... she weighs 120 pounds ... and tells TMZ there's NO WAY Shamrock could've confused her for a man. In fact, she claims Ken is straight up LYING about the fight.
Garcia claims it's all BS ... claiming Shamrock didn't actually break up the original fight, but rather screamed at her to do it ... which she did.
Garcia claims Shamrock began to yell at her for not stopping the fight sooner ... and then snapped and PUNCHED her in the face.
Garcia says her mom ran over to intervene ... and Shamrock punched her too.
Soon after the alleged girl-punching, security and police arrived to the scene ... and only then, Garcia says, Shamrock backed off.
TMZ has text messages from Garcia to her sister (who goes by "Hoochie" in the phone) just moments after the fight in which she describes the incident.
Garcia tells TMZ ... if the police don't press charges, she plans to file a lawsuit.
A rep for Shamrock tells TMZ ... Ken doesn't believe he did anything wrong ... and only acted in self-defense.
The UG came to judgement, decisively.
