Ken Shamrock won't retire, would take Kimbo rematch 'in a heartbeat'

Ken Shamrock isn't planning on retiring, and wants another crack at Kimbo Slice.

Ken Shamrock vs. Kimbo Slice wasn't exactly a fight for the ages, but Shamrock wants a sequel. The 51-year old UFC legend told that he felt great during their Bellator 138 main event encounter, despite having been stopped in the first round by the former internet brawler,

"I looked better than I have in ten years! Imagine now after I get some fights under my belt," Shamrock says. "There's no way I'm going to stop after one fight. I'm going to push the envelope some more."

Asked about a possible retirement, he simply responded by saying, there is "no way in hell" that this is going to happen.

Shamrock lost to Slice via TKO in the first round of Bellator 138's main event on June 19. He had Slice in a rear-naked choke for what seemed to be a very long time, but didn't manage to submit him. Slice eventually escaped and cut Shamrock with hard punches for the stoppage win. Many spectators felt the fight looked a bit bogus, including UFC commentator Joe Rogan who described it as "fake as f-ck". Shamrock assures though, accusations of a fixed fight are "complete B.S."

The UFC Hall of Famer feels he dominated the fight until he made one mistake. A mistake, he is planning to avoid the next time around. Because Shamrock wants a rematch against Slice. Seriously. He told TMZ, would take the fight "in a heartbeat".

Let's hope Bellator doesn't listen.
