You may have no desire to see Ken Shamrock fight again, but his official website has announced that he has been lined up to fight this April. In his prime, Ken Wayne Shamrock was a physical powerhouse with some of the nastiest submissions in mixed martial arts. Towards the end of his career, Shamrock was often a sorry sight, and became synonymous with being on the receiving end of beatdowns, so you would be forgiven for not wanting to see Shamrock ever compete again.

In the days leading up to the much-anticipated light heavyweight title fight between division champion Jon Jones and No. 1 contender Daniel Cormier -- which went down last weekend (Sat. Jan 3, 2015) at UFC 182 in Las Vegas. Nevada -- both men did their best to belittle one another. Even if it came at the expense of another fighter. That was the case when "Bones" tried to downplay "DC's" recent wins, saying that his most recent victory came at the hands of a 50-year-old man in Dan Henderson, and read news >>

Cormier smothered the undersized fellow former U.S. Olympian for the better part of three rounds before finally choking Henderson unconscious at UFC 173, settling the freestyle vs. Greco-Roman debate for at least one night. Set to make his eighth UFC title d read news >>

Okay, so he doesn't know how to throw a punch. At least his ground game is good! How good? Well, according to longtime mixed martial arts (MMA) veteran and current Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) featherweight Cole Miller, CM Punk is better than half the active fighters on the ZUFFA roster, and will prove a lot of haters wrong when he makes his Octagon debut in late 2015.

"Your last fight was against Dan Henderson. You beat a guy that was 50 years old. And now you're stepping in there against a 27-year-old who's going to come in there at 227 pounds -- healthy, young and athletic. If he thinks he's getting in there against a Dan Henderson, or that's giving him any type of sense of security where he thinks he's just going to rule the light heavyweight division, he's sadly mistaken." I get the feeling Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) light heavyweight champion J read news >>
