Sample text

I don’t know if I was just too young, or didn’t need to know, but no one ever shared anything with me. I had a feeling . . there were always secret meetings and whatnot, but I never knew anything about it,” Frank Shamrock said. “No one ever asked me to end it a certain way. I do know that it went on, but I was never approached or had any experience with it. I believe some of the fights that I fought with the upperechelon guys, they may have let me win or had some sort of ending in mind. ” Of course, the Shamrock brand had already been established when Frank Juarez Shamrock burst onto the Pancrase scene and became an instant contender.

After a disappointing kickboxing performance in his native Holland, he was about to retire from fighting altogether. Only his wife’s premonition of future stardom convinced him to try out. “She looked at me, and she had this strange look on her face. ’ Four months later I get a telephone call for a tryout, which was in Amsterdam. I had to go that night. I put somebody in the hospital that tried to knock me out. ” Pancrase turned Rutten into a star. He was a breath of fresh air in a promotion built primarily on grapplers.

I don’t mean knock him out; I mean actually kill him. He’s going to swing, throw a punch from his hips, hit Royce on his head, and knock his head off his skinny little body. ” Royce beat Jimmerson with ease, taking him down and getting the mount position. Jimmerson was so intimidated by his workout with McCarthy that he tapped out before Royce could even attempt a submission hold. The crowd didn’t understand the grappling on the ground and was furious. It only got worse when Ken Shamrock defeated local favorite Patrick Smith by heel hook in the final first-round fight.
