Battle of the Shamrocks to Take Place in EliteXC?

Gary Shaw sure hopes so:

A bout between MMA legends and adoptive brothers Ken Shamrock (26-12-2) and Frank Shamrock (22-8-1) is in the works, and EliteXC Live Events President Gary Shaw says his organization is working to book the fight.

The news comes from Sam Caplan, who interviewed Shaw for his blog at

During this past weekend's HDNet Fights event in Dallas, Texas, Ken was in attendance and fed the rumor mill that a potential bout with his younger brother Frank was being organized.

Not only did Shaw say that the news is legit, but he said EliteXC "absolutely" has a hand in the fight.

"I've been looking at that fight since I met Frank Shamrock, and I'm continuing to look at it and trying to get it done," Shaw told

While the rumor has been out there since even before the HDNet show this is the first time I've heard a specific promotion associated with trying to make the fight happen.  Just a thought...but do you think that Frank vs. Ken on top of a show featuring the Rumored Kimbo/Tank/Sapp/Butterbean Tournament do a little bit of business on PPV?
