Having started fighting in the Pancrase organization more than 13 years ago, Bas Rutten’s career has spanned the gambit. From fighter to trainer to broadcaster to coach to actor and more, Rutten has done it all in the fight game. Maybe most impressive is that whatever light he finds himself cast in, he remains one of the most iconic figures in mixed martial arts.
He returns as coach of the L.A. Anacondas this Saturday night as the International Fight League returns to The Forum in Los Angeles, Calif. Rutten’s team faces the Razorclaws, coached by Frank Shamrock.
Not only is Rutten in the spotlight for his team’s battles on Saturday, but the light from Frank Shamrock’s glow has somehow managed to spill over on him as well. In an interview on IFL.tv, Shamrock tries to spark more controversy saying that he “offered [Rutten] a million dollars” to fight.
Tonight on MMAWeeklyRadio.com, Bas Rutten joins Damon & Jeff, LIVE at 6pm PT / 9pm ET to discuss his team and the IFL, plus he might just address the firestorm that is Frank Shamrock.
