    I wholeheartedly agree with what you said above. Ken was battle worn just from his Pancrase days alone, and I want him to hang it up now.

    However, I did expect more output from Ken in this fight, and I was impressed with Royce's performance. I would like to see Royce rematch Dan Severn next.

    Body and groin shots don't register as quickly, there's always a delayed reaction.

    He was kneed in the face because he was reaching down in reaction to the nut shot. If you've ever been hit real hard the body or groin you'd understand that it takes a couple seconds for the pain to sink in.

    You're a liar.
    You wouldn't last a minute with a professional fighter. Are your pants on fire? I think they are.

    I've been hit both places, very hard.
    "He did it on purpose" and the ensuing reaction seemed played up. He didn't mention the nut shot until the fight was stopped.
    He gets hit, remains in the collar tie. Second knee comes up, he reacts to block low, gets hit high. He was reacting to the second knee, not the shot. He stops defending himself. Gracie hits him with ground and pound.
    Ref stops the fight, Ken's reaction completely changes. Immediately goes into excuse mode.
    Look at any other example of a low blow and you'll notice that they react to the shot, not the follow up. Ken reacted to the second knee.

    Anyway, fouls are at the ref's discretion and unfortunately it wasn't called.

    I got a baseball to the groin a few days ago the reaction was immediate and the pain was 3-4 seconds after. Shamrock did not react at all and the shot looked to graze him not nail him dick on. Shamrock has been in the game for 3 decades now if that was truly a groin shot why didnt he move away and let the ref give him a reprieve?

    If you see it from certain angles, Ken is grimacing and talking the whole way down. He was hurt and the Gracies don't mind fighting dirty.

    I'd love to see Frank Shamrock get a crack at Royce, but I don't think he wants to fight any more.

    Royce would beat CM Punk.
