Frank ShamrockFrank Shamrock has always had a turbulent relationship with the UFC since it was purchased by Zuffa, LLC in 2001.

Shamrock was the first UFC light heavyweight champion.  He went undefeated in the UFC (5-0) before leaving the organization following his UFC 22 victory over Tito Ortiz.  It was his fourth title defense.

Over the years, Shamrock has criticized the UFC and its president, Dana White.

The dislike is a mutual.

“Frank Shamrock is a (expletive).  Frank Shamrock literally never shuts up.  He’s always popping off about something. He’s always got something stupid to say,” said White following the UFC 156 post-fight press conference.

“Frank Shamrock came out with a statement the other day and wants to fight me.  Give me a (expletive) break.  The guy is a clown.  I just have no respect for Frank Shamrock,” said White.

Shamrock joins Randy Couture, Greg Jackson, and Joe Warren as coaches on the upcoming Spike TV reality series “Fight Master: Bellator MMA.”  The show is expected to debut this summer and is currently in production in Louisiana.

Shamrock never fought in the Zuffa-owned UFC.

He declined to comment on White’s statements when contacted by MMAWeekly.com.
