Actually, old-school fights between those two, with the quirky rules of Pancrase, are some of the most entertaining to watch.
Bas Rutten was a heavyweight though. Shamrock would have probably fought at welterweight in today's era although Rutten probably would be a LHW. Frank fought many guys that were much bigger than him and won.

Don't see the point of asking if he would beat Liddel, the fact is he would be fighting at WW or MW today not LHW. So its better to ask if he would beat GSP or Silva. I would say no but he would be top ten today and he was a ground breaker in his day, you don't always have to be the best of all time to have contributed a to the way MMA is today.

I'd respect Dana more if he did what was right and put him in the hall of fame.. Personal differences shouldn't affect things like that

Frank is one of the all time greats though he will never get the respect of Dana's sheep.

Frank Shamrock is not on the radar for top 5 all time. On the current UFC roster I could name five fighters still active who are more deserving of G.O.A.T. legend status over him, it wouldn't be too difficult.

Oh and can we settle down with the Liddell vs Shamrock chatter, Liddell would of pushed his shit in imho.
