    I do think he was bit out of order in saku mezger fight but rules got changed in between fight that's why he kicked off
    And showed his dominance he scared the shit out of pride staff backstage afterwards

    Ken wanted to "Crocop' them...

    Indeed, this fight was tricky to score, since the scoring system was pretty complex, and many factors had to be considered in this fight...

    Personally, I agreed with the draw...

    Bellator or somebody need to get Shamrock back in there. He is a ratings draw and needs the money.

    Shamrock v Gracie 4
    Shamrock v Tank
    Etc.

    How about if Tito and Mezger would have fought that 3rd time? You seem to actually appreciate the old school Lions Den guys. I think itd been interesting

    Probably favour Tito
    He was getting better
    He'd never beat prime ken though

    Yeah Tito
    I agree. Its unfortunate . If you watch alot of Mezgers old interviews he always brought up wanting a 3rd fight with Tito.

    Stroke like symptoms. Patrick Cote was brought in as a late replacement. If the Lions Den didn't have bad luck they wouldn't have had any at all.

    I think Igor would've sent Ken to the hospital that night, but I guess we'll never know. Too bad it never happened. I know Igor really wanted that fight. Now, had they fought in 1996...that for sure could've been a competitive fight that I could see Ken possibly winning.

    I agree. Tra was always better with taking punishment. Took one clean shot after another from Pedro Rizzo like it was nothing and was still able to give some, damn fight was stopped due to a cut.

    Yet Vitor obliterated Tra in just over a minute. Young, juiced Vitor was a buzzsaw. I'm not sure if there's been another fighter since with that combo of speed, power and aggression. Of course, Vitor wasn't the most well-rounded fighter and he burned out if he didn't get a quick KO.. Couture gave a blueprint for beating him, but Vitor was still really dangerous early in the fight.

    Yep, prime Ken held his own with Severn in the wrestling department. I think he'd beat a young Tito (say in 1997 if Ken hadn't left for pro wrestling), but it would be a fun war. Ken probably gets a sub eventually. When they fought much later, Tito should've at least agreed to fight Ken (who was much older) at HW. I think the 240-pound Ken who beat Kimo in their rematch would've been a tougher fight for Tito than 205-pound Ken.

    I'm sure this is sarcastic, right? Tank couldn't even pass the physical when he last tried to fight (as a replacement for Ken against Dan Severn at some small event).
