The legendary Frank Shamrock and rising star Carlos Condit join Damon & Jeff on MMAWeeklyRadio.com tonight at 6pm PT / 9pm ET.
Frank Shamrock is known as one of the first true mixed martial arts in the sport. Not focusing on one discipline over the other, Shamrock was set the early standard for comprehensive training which incorporated striking, wrestling, submissions, and conditioning, to be a well-rounded mixed martial artist.
Shamrock has also become one of the most controversial figures in MMA today. His refusal to work with the Dana White-run Ultimate Fighting Championship has taken on a life of it’s own. Controversy has also followed as Shamrock signed on to fight Renzo Gracie in the main event of Showtime’s emergence on the MMA scene with EliteXC on February 10th.
This Friday night, Frank leads his San Jose Razorclaws head-to-head against his brother, Ken’s Nevada Lions in the International Fight League’s 2007 season opener. Though it isn’t quite what some fans might clamber for, we’ll finally get to witness Shamrock vs. Shamrock.
Carlos Condit has grown his fight career steadily over the past four years, consistently adding to his arsenal and gradually stepping up in competition. That is until he seemingly burst onto the world’s radar as part of the Rumble on the Rock 175-pound Grand Prix. There he shocked many who were unaware of the New Mexico-product by knocking out Charuto Verissimo and submitting Frank Trigg, both in the first round, before losing a decision in the finals to Jake Shields.
Condit has fought his last three battles in Japan’s prestigious Pancrase organization, reeling off wins in all three bouts. Possibly lining himself up for a shot at a Pancrase title, Condit first steps into the cage at the newly revamped World Extreme Cagefighting this Saturday night at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Listen in as Frank Shamrock and Carlos Condit join Damon & Jeff on SoundOff at MMAWeekly Radio.com tonight at 6pm PT / 9pm ET.
