    Is Shamrock medically cleared?

    Sounds like a giant snooze fest.

    Shamrock takes the dive in a worked "shoot"

    Nah, I don't think Toney would do a work. He's way too prideful. I think Ken legitimately feels he's developed good boxing, and he believes he can beat James Toney in a striking match and a grappling match. And I think Toney legitimately feels he's going to KO Ken regardless of the style of fight.

    It'll be a hell of a freak show to watch.

    This doesn't even interest me on a freak show level. And I like Shamrock. Does he owe someone a bunch of money or something?

    I couldnt agree less
    I can see Toney & Shamrock doing anything for some last paydays
    Then its Toney vs Kimbo next & all the guys that have names but aren't welcome in UFC go that route
    Add in Pudz as well

    Toney will fight anyone anywhere for any reason. I just can't see him ever doing a work unless it's an actual pro wrestling show appearance where he shows up, punches someone, and gets paid.

    Ew. Just read the special rules for the fight. It's gonna be 8, 3 minute rounds. And the fight will be stood up 30 seconds after a takedown no matter the action or positioning. Who knows, maybe it'll be a slugfest. But I'm not getting my hopes up
