Coming off a broken arm in losing the Strikeforce middleweight championship to Cung Le, Frank Shamrock was not sure when he would be able to fight again. That question has now been answered.
I just came back from getting a bone density scan in my arm – I am cleared for combat,” said Shamrock, “so Cung Le, Scott Smith, Robbie Lawler, Kimbo Slice – whoever’s been eating their Wheaties better get ready.”
Shamrock also wasted little time in specifically calling out the person he wants to fight next.
I think the Ken (Shamrock) fight is very important to get done as soon as possible. I’d like to get that fight in first, and I’d like to get a fight in by the end of the year.”
Having Shamrock available to fight is a definite bonus to both Strikeforce and EliteXC. Not many fighters in the history of MMA are as good at promoting a fight as Shamrock is. Shamrock is a huge draw in San Jose with Strikeforce, and EliteXC would certainly love to have him available to headline the next non-Kimbo Slice CBS card.
