    ken said since the gracies basically ran the ufc back in the day...they told him he could not wear his wrestling shoes because they would be a weapon.........but royce got to use a gi that was used as a weapon to choke ken out....excited to see the fight tonight to see how ken beats on royce.

    The shoes still would not have helped him in their first fight.
    I get it that he is bitter about it, but the shoes had nothing to do with the choke.

    Edit: I agree with you about being excited for the fight. Fuck those that just look at their age. Two legends fighting again, why not be excited?

    They were both on their knees, it was not about being able to spring by footwork.
    He said in interviews many years ago that he was not worried about the neck, and that was his fault.

    Id love to see how todays forum posters would react to the gracies" insistent on having their own rules in those pride fights. This forum would go into apoplexy if Ronda tried that.

    Of course the Gracies stacked the deck in their favor. It was their show and was basically an infomercial for GJJ.

    Mark Coleman once said the best thing about Pride was the ability to wear wrestling shoes. He said it just made his overall game stronger. Better TDs and better control of opponents on the ground.

    Didn't look like he slipped when he was going for an achilles lock.

    Good points made about the Gracies but Shamrock's wrestling shoes would not have changed anything.
