Ken Shamrock is 51, Currently Has Body of Action Figure

Stephen Douglas

Ken Shamrock is 51-years old. Shamrock is scheduled to fight Kimbo Slice at Bellator 138 next weekend on SpikeTV. So it makes sense that he would get super-jacked and look like an action hero. Before your dirty mind starts wandering and thinking about the possibility of PEDs being involved – he’s failed drug tests before – forget about it. Via Sherdog:

"“Hard work and genetics,” he said. “I think if you’ve watched me throughout my career when I tried to go and pack on weight I’m not as lean. When I don’t worry about packing the weight on and I just worry about my cardio, my speed, then I get leaner. And that’s just how my physique has been throughout my career and it’s no different now. I think the difference that you’re seeing now is I’m putting in harder work.”"

There you have it.


Now, the real question is, should I live-blog Bellator 138? I tried to live-blog the originally scheduled Shamrock – Slice bout in the pre-Twitter days, but Shamrock pulled out at the last second, Seth Petruzelli knocked out Kimbo, and EliteXC crumbled. Plus, James Thompson is fighting Bobby Lashley on this card. That’s right – the guy whose ear exploded on CBS seven years ago and the former professional wrestler.
