Michael Bisping vs Ken Shamrock at UFC 75


 Share

Recommended Posts

The Ultimate Fighter 3 light heavyweight winner Michael Bisping (13-0 MMA, 3-0 UFC) will fight UFC Hall of Famer Ken Shamrock (26-12-2 MMA, 7-6-2 UFC) — not Matt Hamill — at UFC 75 in London, England on Sept. 8.

That’s the report from The Fight Network.

Bisping was originally expected to face his former castmate Matt Hamill. Ticketmaster released an event description last week that included the matchup. Instead, though, Loretta Hunt says that Shamrock will come out of retirement to face Bipsing at the event, which takes place at the 02 Arena.

After topping Josh Haynes in The Ultimate Fighter 3 Finale, Bisping defeated Eric Schafer with a first-round TKO at UFC 66. Then, in front of a Manchester crowd at April’s UFC 70 event, he scored a second-round TKO of Elvis Sinosic.

Shamrock has been fighting professionally for nearly 14 years and competed in the very first UFC event. The submission specialist left the UFC for six years but ultimately returned to fight Tito Ortiz and then to coach a team on The Ultimate Fighter 3 last year opposite Ortiz. Shamrock’s 1-4 in the Octagon since his return, with three of the losses coming to Ortiz.

Bisping appeared on Ortiz’s — not Shamrock’s — team on The Ultimate Fighter 3.

Although the UFC has confirmed that Bisping will appear on the UFC 75 card, the organization has made no official announcement regardin:Dhis opponent.

Awesome :D

Are you kidding me? You are looking forward to Ken Shamrock getting face pounded by Bisping? It's not even confirmed yet, and Shamrock is only in negotiations to come back to the UFC.

Hamill was a much better fight. Superior ground game vs. Standup, I'd rather see that. Shamrock has been man-handled the same way in 6 outta the last 7 fights, on the ground. Bisping will throw him down and pound. I will say this, Shamrock has a better chance than most guys. He's a big strong guy, who can end the fight with one swing. So maybe it will be exciting. I just think Hamill-Bisping would have been better.

I think it will be awesome taking on someone with alot of big time experience thats what I meant...yeah Bisping is gonna be fitter and probably smack Ken around but who knows Ken might pull some old tricks out of the bag...

Yes, it is probably enevitable that Shamrock will get owned (remember Franklin?) But it'll be good to see Bisping put up against someone who's not unknown! :p

And yeah, like Rappy said, albeit it's unlikely, you never know what Shamrock can pull outta the bag. It only takes 1 punch...

Well it seems it was just a rumour...

Regarding rumors regarding the next UFC in London, England, Michael Bisping vs. Matt Hamill is still the scheduled match on that show. There are rumors regarding Bisping vs. Ken Shamrock, but that may have been discussed but it is not the current plan.

Good, the Bisping vs Hamill is a much better matchup anyways. Hamill's strengths counter Bisping's strengths, should be a grudge match.

It isn't happening, Fight Network broke the story, and then everyone else picked it up, but the main story was that Shamrock is negotiating a contract, so I don't know who the hell he is going to fight, but it won't be at UFC 75.
