    Am I the only one that thinks that this would be a logical move for Scott Coker and co? I'm not sure whatw Frank's health/injury situation is looking like, but he has fought for Scott quite a few times including the very frist Strikeforce MMA card.

    Granted it's a rematch that is 15 years too late, but they are both still recognizable names that had a good first fight. If sold right this could generate a fair amount of interest.

    I love Frank and hate Tito...but please no. Tito would run through Frank's TDD

    I agree, but it seems like it's a Scott Coker type of fight.

    It won't happen. Like Frank would let Tito even the score. Frank knew he had nothing left 5 years ago and doesn't even hint that he considers coming back. I doubt that has changed at all.

    Frank Shamrock can't even tie his shoelaces without pain these days. No way on earth he returns to fighting.

    the less Frank Shamrock I have in my life, either fighting or commentating, the better.

    This would have been a decent fight...maybe back in 2005.

    I agree. But it's also because Tito is MUCH bigger. Frank overcame the size advantage in their first fight. That's because he was IMO the best P4P fighter of that era--way ahead of his time. Now Frank has years of ring rust and some legit injuries (not Tito's "cracked skull" excuses).

    If Frank considers this at all, he should demand a catchweight fight at 180, which Tito would never make.

    After Ken's upcoming foray into Bare knuckle boxing that is.
