A staph infection is the reason why UFC Hall of Famer Ken Shamrock was forced to pull out of Friday's fight at World Extreme Fighting 46 in Orlando.

Shamrock's wife Tonya tells MMAFighting.com that Shamrock came down with MRSA recently while taking care of his son who had been hospitalized for a week due to the same infection. For the safety of himself and others, the 47-year-old Shamrock was asked by doctors to withdraw from the fight and was placed on antibiotics for several weeks.

 I was wondering why they would even schedule him to fight on that date when he just recently went down with a freak knee injury against Bourke.

I think it was just the promoter using his name to sell tickets when he knew chances of him fighting were slim to none.

Say what you will about Ken, I would STILL be interested to see him fight Coleman or Frank or rematch Severn. I might even tune in to Ken vs Kimbo for the hell of it.

What's with these nerds who post on a thread about a fighter just to disrespect him? Ken won his last fight. Just because his UFC days are over doesn't mean that he can't compete at all.

 Are you saying that Jamie Levine would engage in shady behavior?
Not really, but when I watched the Bourke fight online and saw that Ken was sigfned just days later to fight in Florida the next month, I knew he wasn't going to be able to fight. Why book an injured fighter?

 Theres only one final K Sham match that makes any sense. Against a former student of his.



STUDENT/TEACHER

LEGEND/MASTER

But before they can face each other, they must confront a ghost from both their pasts..........

Well, no doubt Ken can't keep up with anyone in the TOP 15-20 at 205 or HWT. That said he has been doing so so against a handful of mediocre fighters the last few years.

These 'nerds' speak the truth, all Ken is doing is making a payday off his name, he can still draw a curious fan or two, like yourself, to some small time shows and make a buck.

His days of relevance are over, he's only getting attention here because of what he's done in the past, this guy saying too bad because Ken's window is closing...like he still has a shot at a comeback or something. Yea right

MRSA is nothing to laugh about at all, I had it and was fortunate to catch it early on. I only had to be on antibiotics for about THREE weeks too.

Retard'sLawyerFappedinMymouth - He told me that he still wanted to fight, but the doctors wouldn't let him. The thing that sucks about his MRSA is that its located on his back..


I had it on my left butt cheek.

So if a fighter can't be top 20 in their division then they should just retire? What about the people out there who just love to fight?
