Ken Shamrock, 49, agrees to fight Ian Freeman, 42 in UK MMA bout

UFC Hall of Famer Ken Shamrock has verbally agreed to face Ian Freeman in the Ultimate Cage Fighting Championships this summer in England.


It's been a while since 49-year-old UFC Hall of Famer Ken Shamrock was really "the World's Most Dangerous Man" but that's not stopping a British promoter from booking him to fight a fellow pioneer of the sport, 42-year-old Ian Freeman. Sherdog reports: confirmed Wednesday with Ultimate Cage Fighting Championships official David Mangham that Ken Shamrock and Ian Freeman have verbally agreed to square off on July 27 at Keepmoat Stadium in Doncaster. Contracts have not yet been signed, however, according to Mangham.

Shamrock is 28-15 as a professional (including a number of Pancrase bouts under a very different rule set from modern MMA) but is 3-7 in the last decade. His last fight was a 2 minute TKO loss to Mike Bourke in November, 2010.

Freeman is 19-7 as a pro and last fought professionally in 2008.
