Frank Shamrock Offered To Fight Kimbo

When Ken Shamrock was forced out of the EliteXC on CBS main event against Kevin “Kimbo Slice” Ferguson due to a cut just hours before the two were scheduled to fight, another Shamrock offered to step in as a last minute replacement.

EliteXC Head of Fight Operations, Jeremy Lappen, told MMAWeekly Radio that Frank Shamrock offered to step out of the broadcasters’ booth to step in for adoptive brother Ken.

“He did offer himself up,” said Lappen. But it wasn’t feasible to get Frank Shamrock cleared with the commission on such short notice.

Frank will be on MMAWeekly Radio on Friday at 9pm ET/6pm PT.
