    And why do they keep on posting the same exact incomplete gif to validate their point?

    There's the full fucking gif, stop posting the short one that doesn't show why Ken dropped.

    Shammy was just pulling the
    ol' "living death" switch.

    It's just that gif- and Ken's background. It was a legit fight, but it was hard to believe that a young kid could beat Ken. Anybody who had seen Ken Shamrock finish Matt Hume with a Northern Lights Suplex-Kimura combo knew just how good Ken was. {<hhh]

    I firmly believe Ken was just trying to be entertaining while attempting a super retarded move on an experienced and skilled fighter. Slipping a punch like that to dive on a leg lock......jesus christ. I can see why people thought the fight was worked but it's likely some nutty shit he had been trying in training to perfect.

    He tried to throw the fight. Realised the blunder he made and tried to cover it up by grabbing the ankle. Ken is a seasoned jobber. He knows he couldn't sell that flop and improvised. He also threw the Kimbo fight. Why do people think that him going for the ankle after the fact means he didn't try to throw it?

    Pretty sure he was just shooting in for a takedown and realized he was going to get hit as soon as he did.

    I mainly attribute it to not many people watching Ken fight in Japan. if they had, they would have known that he was used up. instead, they bought into the Shamrock that they remembered from the 90's. that Ken was long gone.

    Bellator took the opposite track with Frank. carefully managed his "return" so that casual fans would not realize that he was lucky to step up into the cage without blowing his ACL.

    EDIT: meant SF, not Bellator. Same Coker

    Bingo. As I recall, by that time Ken had effectively blown out both knees.

    I was surprised by the drawing power Ken still had. his first fight against Tito did big numbers I think.
