Tito Ortiz Vs. Ken Shamrock at UFC 61

The long awaited 2nd match between Tito Ortiz and Ken Shamrock.. a quick and controversial ending, but I guess it's better to end a fight too soon than too late, and Tito was gonna wreck him either way.

For all the extended hype that surrounded the light heavyweight fight between Tito Ortiz and Ken Shamrock at UFC 61 last night -- years of personal barbs exchanged between two of the Ultimate Fighting Championship's most recognizable fighters -- their second meeting ended in a swift fury.

Ortiz, the former 205-pound champion, stopped Shamrock 1 minute 8 seconds into the first round of their bout before a sellout crowd at the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas...

...Ortiz nailed a double-leg takedown shortly after the opening bell, slamming Shamrock to the ground and then employing his signature ground-and-pound technique while Shamrock lay against the fence. After a succession of unanswered elbows, referee Herb Dean stepped in to stop the bout.

"I hit him with one elbow, and he went completely limp," Ortiz said in a telephone interview after the bout. "Herb Dean made the right decision."

I used to like Shamrock, but after I saw how he totally failed his team in training them on Ultimate Fighter, I lost all interest in that Hack. This clown would not even go to the mat with any of his team, to really show them how something was done right, he was only in it for the sake of having his name being thrown around the UFC circle of fighters and fans. When your "Way" over the hill and should retire, you should actually retire and stay that way. (Hey, Shamrock, Hint Hint!)

ken shamrock is a bad ass.you guys dont know shit.ortiz got lucky.should shamrock retire probably.but for an older guy he is still a bad ass.and for the people who thinks he is a puss i bet my money he'd kick your ass.

Posted by: branden coolio at July 18, 2006 7:09 PM

hell hey shamrock is a bad ass he needs to retire but thats cause his time to shine is over but when u continously get beat then u need to go home relax and enjoy before u end up dying instead of just being elbowed unconcious

This 'sham'rock was just playing into the hype for ratings. he knows he wasn't in tito's league since the last beating he took from tito. 'sham'rock was just looking for a payday. forget age. i've seen OLDER women take a stronger beating and still turn the tides on their attacker. there is no question that 'sham'rock blows monkey nuts. i would like to offer an open challenger to 'sham'rock but he'd probably puss out. call me 'sham'!!! call toll free asshole!! 1-800-ken-sucks (cow balls)
hell...email me FOOL!! igotahookup@... figure out the rest and FIND me CABRON!! YOU'RE NEXT!!!

SHAMrock got OWNED!!!! just like the little kid in that video clip getting OWNED by that cat as it clawed away at the poor child's face!!!

Posted by: ken'gotOWNEDbyme'shamrock at July 21, 2006 2:05 PM

Shamrock is an absolute loser and should get the hell out of the UFC. He will probably die an early death or turn into a vegetable due to the massive blows to the head he has sustained. The TUF3 bullshit really threw me over the edge... He sucked as a coach and a mentor. Give it up, ass... You embarrassing piece of cow shit

Posted by: Doug at July 21, 2006 7:48 PM

I still want to see Tito fight Frank. I know Frank ate Tito's lunch the last time in a matter of seconds I'd just like to see Frank squash him again like he did Ceaser Gracie.

Im a die hard ortiz fan, but you guys need to lay off shamrock, he might look like a wuss when he is with tito but i garentee he would own all of you guys dising him, tito is way strong but you dont realize back in the day....before most of you were born shamrock made the sport. if shamrock was tito's age the fight would have been better but dont be hating shamrock he could kick your ass garentee

Posted by: ufc for life at July 28, 2006 12:08 AM

u all dissin shamrock like u could take him the guys 42 and still kickin fighters heads in. Tito is a good fighter and deserved 2 win but u lot should lay off ken shramrock. he in the hall of fame 4 a reason. frank shramrock should come back and kick titos head in again

Posted by: lloyd at July 29, 2006 4:09 PM

all u gotta think about it that ken shamrock would kick the shit outta tito ortiz if shamrock was in his prime....that is all i gotta say besides tito ortiz is a punk and i am glad Randy C. beat ur ass with relative ease u lil punk

Posted by: Farmer at July 29, 2006 5:05 PM

this guy lloyd above me is a fucking retard and deserves to get a fat dick shoved right up his ass because he thinks he knows his shit, but hes nothing but a little bitch. Fuck Ken he sucks and would never beat Tito, i dont give a shit what you say, suck it lloyd you fat fucker

Posted by: skeet at August 1, 2006 1:05 AM

HEY FARMER!!!, your a stupid fucking hick! The last pussy youve seen was the one your mom squeezed you out of! I bet you think your tough shit huh fucker! Know this that Tito will fuck up anyone and hes the fucking man. Call em a punk but at least he backs his shit up you fucking pussy ass bitch! I wish i knew you so i could come cock slap that ugly ass face of yours. It doesn't matter that ken "could" win in his prime cause hes not in it you stupid FUCK!!!!!

Posted by: skeet at August 1, 2006 1:13 AM

skeet...you inbred, lowlife, degenerate!! shut the FUCK up! you must be tired from having hung all up on ken's balls the whole time you were typing that shit. ken was an ok fighter. but whether he was in his prime or not...TITO would spank that ass time and time again. why don't you crawl under the rock you came out of before i unload on your punkass and drop BOLOS'!!

Posted by: skeet killer at August 1, 2006 4:47 PM

Oh wow! So like I should never enter in a man's world. And I'm totaly sure someone going to bitch at me for saying this but Shamrock in his prime wasnt all that. Tito's got mad talent he doesn't tap into all the time but if you actually do martial arts (like i do) you can see the difference between Ken's LEARNED technique and Tito's NATURAL talent.

Posted by: Turbolicious at August 3, 2006 7:05 PM

I'll say this for Tito, for all those years that I thought he was a show boating big mouthed prick... The respect and gratitude of his team on TUF3 sure changed my opinion of him. I always knew he was a good fighter... but I also thought he was an arrogant asshole. I sure have a different opinion of him now. As for Ken, you folks can blow all the smoke you want to. But there is a reason he is in the UFC hall of fame. Yep, he's old and should retire. Hopefully Tito helped him realize that.

After reading the comments following Ortiz-Shamrock 2 I just gotta voice my 2 cents. Yes the fight was anti-climatic. It probably marked the end of Ken Shamrock's storied career. Like him or hate him, Ken Shamrock "the world's most dangerous man" did as much to shape the UFC as any fighter. Yea, he wasn't the best coach in UF3 but we can't all be good at everything. He plays a mean game of pool.

I believe his time in the octagon has passed but we must give honor where honor is due. In his prime he was a tremendous fighter, and explosive personality. People who don't even watch the UFC know who Ken Shamrock is. Like him or hate him, Shamrock has been good for the notoriety and growing popularity of MMA. I agree it's time for Ken to hang up the gloves but we all, Tito included, gotta give the man his "props" and the respect.

Posted by: triksal at August 13, 2006 12:32 AM

I don't like either of them. but out of the two, i hate Tito. he is such a fucking dick. if he was more humble i might like him more. i think they called the fight to early though. but whatever. i can kick both their asses ^_^ n_n

Does anyone know the artist of Ken Shamrocks intro music in UFC 61?????????????

Posted by: jeff at August 21, 2006 9:45 PM

Straight up on the real all bullshit aside. That fight was wack. They stopped the fight way too soon after what like four elbows. What the fuck..Shamrock pulled a Tyson. Kens better than that he just didnt have his shit straight. Tito's an arrogant punk. All in all though they both pretty damn tough. Im just pissed cuz I didnt see some teeth fly and maybe a little blood. Wish I could have seen Randy spank Titos ass! HaHA!!

Posted by: aaron at August 25, 2006 5:25 AM

Ken Shamrock deserves the respect that he has earned fighting in the UFC. He may be older than some of the new fighters but he still has got it. Tito on the other hand is still trash talking about Liddell even though Liddell killed him. I can't wait for the rematch of Tito and Ken on October 10 so hopefully Ken can knock out Tito. Tito is nothing but a punk who cries when he looses.

Posted by: Bob at August 30, 2006 10:56 PM

Any real UFC fan would know all the Ken has done for the UFC and would appreciate him. You guys are nothing but fake fans who like to see people like Tito cause trouble and make it like a WWE. Shamrock built the damn UFC.

Posted by: Bob at August 30, 2006 10:59 PM

Bob is right. If any of you guys look at what Shamrock was doing before he left for WWF, you would see that he was dominating the UFC. None of you have the right to say that Shamrock should retire, if he feels he can still fight then he should. Tito is a good fighter but will never be champion again because Liddell will knock his ass out.

Posted by: Chris at August 30, 2006 11:15 PM

ken shamrock is the one that put the ufc on the map, he did so much for the mma's and you people just love to knock him down, can any of you do the things shamrock did, answer , nooooooooo

Posted by: bernie at September 1, 2006 12:50 PM

Correct, Ken Shamrock deserves respect... the only reason he has beef with Tito is because he shows him none, if it wasn't for Ken, noone would know Tito Ortiz to begin with. Also Tito's record is 15-4 in comparison to the other fighters in the UFC, its crap. Yet another thing, tito ortiz was a backup fighter, aha.

Posted by: nick at September 7, 2006 2:43 PM

as for ken shamrock...yeah ok the guy is a bloody good fighter....i have been following ufc since day one and not even royce gracie, possably the greatest fighter of all time is still competing at this level as ken still is.....shamrock does what shamrock is good at and he gave mma a platform to present it to the media as well....as for tito ortiz.......well he is a different kettle of fish.....young dumb and i guess you guys know the rest of it but anyways the point is that he has also given the mma a huge boost with his mouth.... showboating....smack-talking.....but he can bring the game if need be...he has skills on the ground that if he gets the opportunity to utilise he does.... and hence the fight ends...but even with this kind of power and skill.....it only takes two words to remind us that there can be only one at the top.........chuck liddell......but if you ppl really wanna know about ppl who did great things for ufc and mma...check out the old school ufc fighters like mark kerr.....dan severn....royce gracie.....mark coleman.....don frye......surely to have an opinion on who is great and who isnt you have to know the playing field dont you?...........seems like ppl like to talk like they are tito with kens balls to back it up. when the fact remains that these PROFESSIONAL ALTHLETES......at the PINNICLE OF THEIR SPORT would easily spank any of us like they was our daddy.........anyways at least the sport is being watched........

Posted by: martin at September 13, 2006 10:19 PM

tito ortiz is a B**tch, i dont no wa all u ppl c bout him!! hes sum punk kid wanting to sum kind of badboy with his cokyy attitude!!! shamrocks the legend!! full stop!! chuck liddell!!next legend!!

Posted by: hhh at September 20, 2006 10:23 AM

all you haters are full of shit the truth is that both of these men are good fighters and none of you shit talkers can take that from either of them let alone stand face to face and talk your shit we all know if it came to that you would just be bent over taking it in the ass

Posted by: anthony at September 20, 2006 6:35 PM

you guys are all pretty damn dumb. They both suck. Bad striking, bad grappling. The only reason the fight is so good is because both fighters lack so much talent.. want to see a good fight? Lets get ready for the Georges St.Pierre VS Matt Hughes fight.

Posted by: angelo at September 28, 2006 11:54 AM

Oh and one more thing to all you old guys... Ken Shamrock is a dork,and so are you guys. You can't teach an old dog new tricks. You also can't beat tito when your name is SHAMErock i mean shamrock... and look at how gay his name is... shamrock? Jesus christ he might as well call himself fred flinstone.

Posted by: angelo at September 28, 2006 11:58 AM

All you fags STFU about your thick GH fattened Tito faced chimpy. Ken came with the intent to suck balls but Tito gassed his sack out in the first round. Ken has done a lot for the sport but his ballsack had been drained for many years prior to his mounting Tito in the octagon. The gaseous McCarthy let it go to a definitive end this time so we can all start knobbing each other's rods in agreement.

Tito could kick the shit out of me but he is still a fuckin punkass bitch and sounds like a little fuckin faggot when he talks. If the faggot bitch would just stfu when he wins and win with class i would have atleast some respect for him.
