Royce Gracie and Ken Shamrock



Someone said Royce Gracie and Ken Shamrock are fighting tonight. Not a rerun but a new fight. That is awesome. These are two legends that put MMA on the map. Now they're old and still busting sh*t out. Live results.



Ken Shamrock was buff with a background in shootfighting and was one of the few guys in the beginning that could execute ankle locks. Royce Gracie was the one who put everything on the map. Taking a striker to the ground and choking him out from a million different angles. Royce wasn't that big but he was skillful and took out guys much bigger then him before they had weight classes. Mad harsh respect to them both.

Sylvester Stallone and Robert De Niro were in a movie called Grudge Match where two former boxing rivals finally go at it in their old age. It wasn't a five star move but it was well done. I liked it. Everything Stallone does is classy with a good moral. Rocky Balboa was awesome when he went up against a much younger kid in his prime. The young kid takes one look at Rocky and says it's over. Rocky says it ain't over until it's over. The kids scoffs and says what's that from the /80's? He pauses thinking for a second then embarrassed answers naw I think that's from the /70's. Stallone's most recent movie Creed is a classic. Hard to imagine he was born in 1946.



Deadpool is out. It was filmed here in Vancouver and has several Canadian jokes.

  1. The Kimbo Slice vs. Dada5000 fight was pathetic, both those guys were gassed by the end of the first round, Kimbo won by staying vertical until Dada collapsed of exhaustion.

    Grace vs. Shamrock was arguably even worse, Gracie cheats by shin-kicking Shamrock in the groin, ref doesn't stop it when Shamrock goes down, so Gracie gets in some punches on the ground that would not have put Shamrock out of the fight by themselves and THEN the ref stops it and Gracie is declared the winner. I can't believe I stayed up late for this shit, what a joke.

    1. Kimbo is another legend. Remember in the beginning UFC allowed groin strikes. I remember one time a guy had someone down in the side mount then started puching the sh*t out of the guys groin over and over again. It was pretty nasty. These guys put the sport on the map.
