The "superfight", a match presented as a fight between the "best of the best", was still the match that would determine the UFC champion and the tournament winner would be considered the 1 contender for the newly created UFC Superfight Championship later replaced by the UFC Heavyweight Championship when weight categories were introduced to the UFC.
Their feud began at the pre-fight press conference. After most of the attention from the media was given to Shamrock, Severn got up and walked out of the door without explanation.
Severn later said that he walked out because he felt that it would be unfair to Shamrock for him to be present in the room while Shamrock was discussing his fight strategy to the media.
Shamrock became even more furious when he found a newsletter back at the hotel that explained to readers how Severn was going to destroy Shamrock.
On September 8, , at UFC 7 , Shamrock successfully defended the UFC Superfight Championship against UFC 6 Tournament Champion "The Russian Bear" Oleg Taktarov.
Shamrock stated in his autobiography that he was uncomfortable fighting Taktarov, as Oleg trained with the Lion's Den and he did not wish to injure his friend and teammate.
In Beyond the Lion's Den , Shamrock states; "In addition to being his friend, I was also trying to get him into Pancrase and if I broke his leg it would be a while before he could recover and he needed the money.
I figured my best chance of winning without seriously hurting him was to beat on him with punches If I could open a cut and get him to start pouring blood, I could get a referee stoppage.
It might not have been the best plan going into a fight, but considering the options it seemed like the best option available. And it turned out fine.
I battered him around for the duration of the match, the bout was declared a draw and when Oleg recovered he went on to fight in Pancrase.
Shamrock then defended his belt against Kimo Leopoldo at UFC 8 in February in Puerto Rico. In the bout, Shamrock secured a kneebar, forcing Kimo to submit.
With the win, Shamrock defended his UFC Superfight title for the second time. Shamrock was then scheduled to face number one contender and rival Dan Severn at UFC 9 in a rematch of their fight at UFC 6 , which Shamrock won by guillotine choke in Their rematch at UFC 9 was marketed as the "Clash of the Titans 2" and took place in the Cobo Arena in Detroit, Michigan, in Severn's home state.
Fighters were warned hours before the show that they would be arrested if they punched to the head with a closed fist.
When Shamrock learned of the sudden rule change, he made up his mind that he was not going to fight. While training for the match, Shamrock suffered a torn lateral meniscus , a partially torn ACL , a broken nose, and cracked ribs.
After UFC owner Bob Meyrowitz and other UFC officials pleaded with Shamrock to go on with the show, Shamrock, despite the injuries and new rules, reluctantly gave in to the pressure.
In a fight that would be called "The Dance in Detroit", both Severn and Shamrock circled each other with little to no contact for a combined total of almost thirty minutes.
Shamrock held the mount for close to five minutes, throwing open fist palm strikes to Severn's head and an occasional closed fist punch to the body.
Shamrock felt as though he would have damaged Severn badly and perhaps finished him from this position of full mount had he been allowed to punch Severn in the face with a closed fist.
Severn eventually gave his back in an attempt to get out and the risk paid off as Shamrock slid off Severn's back and onto his back in full guard.
Severn landed a headbutt to open a cut above Shamrock's eye and followed with elbow strikes and punches from Shamrock's guard.
Shamrock eventually got back to his feet and after six more minutes stalling, the fight went to a judges decision.
The judges gave a split decision win to Dan Severn, which upset Shamrock because he felt as though Severn had broken the rules by utilizing the banned closed fist punches to the head and headbutts.
Chants of "boring! Shamrock later stated that going through with this fight was the biggest regret of his fighting career.
After taking time off away from the octagon to heal injuries, Shamrock entered the UFC's Ultimate Ultimate in December Shamrock appeared as a guest on the mainstream American television program Late Night with Conan O'Brien to promote the event.
Frank Shamrock served as Ken's head cornerman for the event. Shamrock's opponent in the quarterfinals of the tournament was Judo black belt, kickboxer, and Golden Gloves champion Brian Johnston.
Shamrock eventually tapped Johnston out with a forearm choke and advanced to the semifinals of the tournament. Shamrock, however, broke the same hand during this fight that kept him out of UFC 2 and had to withdraw from the tournament.
After UFC 9 , United States Senator John McCain was successful in pulling UFC pay-per-view broadcasts from numerous cable systems, including TCI Cable , which greatly hurt pay-per-view revenue.
Combined with money drying out, the need to support his family and being burnt out from fighting, Shamrock left MMA for professional wrestling signing with the World Wrestling Federation.
On January 30, , at the Pride Grand Prix Opening Round , Guy Mezger , one of Shamrock's fighters, fought Kazushi Sakuraba , who at the time was considered to be one of the best pound for pound fighters in the world.
Mezger took the fight on two weeks' notice and had a broken foot going into the fight. The contract that Mezger signed stipulated that the fight would be one 15 minute round with no overtime.
The fight mostly consisted of Mezger controlling the fight by stopping Sakuraba's takedown attempts while landing strikes from the outside.
The round ended and Mezger expected the fight to go to the judges, but Pride officials wanted the fight to go to overtime.
Mezger was then ordered out of the ring and back to the locker room by Shamrock, who was livid at the decision to extend the fight because of Mezger's foot injury and the fact that he had taken the fight on short notice.
Mezger said, "For some reason, I had a tremendous amount of energy for that 15 minutes, but I started to kind of wilt near the end.
Then they called it a draw and I'm like, "What? Really, Ken was protecting his fighter. We had an agreement. Later I heard that Mezger's contract was only for a one-round fight.
I thought, "Ah, then it couldn't be helped. Seeing Mezger getting scolded by him, I felt sorry for Mezger.
Later that night, the president of Pride FC made a public apology to Mezger at the Tokyo Dome for the miscommunication.
Braverman added, "We had a big meeting with PRIDE. We were able to get some concessions out of them, money and guarantees of future fights.
They wanted to make it right. One thing I said in the meeting was, "Do you want me to call Kenny back in here and see what he says?
In early , Shamrock made a comeback to the mixed martial arts scene following his 4-year hiatus in the WWF. He signed with Pride Fighting Championships and defeated Alexander Otsuka by KO due to punches at the Pride Grand Prix Finals in the superfight, his first fight back from the WWF.
During the match Shamrock was able to totally knock out the tough Otsuka, a feat which renowned strikers like Igor Vovchanchyn and Wanderlei Silva failed to do.
This was the first ever Pride event to be broadcast live in America  and Pride strategically used Shamrock's drawing power in America by making his Superfight with Otsuka the co-headliner of the event.
On August 27, , Shamrock fought consensus top 10 Heavyweight "Ironhead" Kazuyuki Fujita at Pride 10 - Return of the Warriors. Shamrock came into the fight with Fujita noticeably smaller than his previous fight with Otsuka, dropping roughly 15 pounds of weight.
During the time before the fight, Shamrock was going through a divorce and had to take care of his young kids during the day, which severely cut into his training time for the fight.
Despite this, Shamrock dominated Fujita throughout the entire fight, stopping takedowns from the Japanese wrestling champion and landing hard strikes, but eventually had his corner throw in the towel because he felt like he was having a heart attack.
He was evaluated after the fight and it was determined that he was suffering from heart palpitations. In March , Shamrock was scheduled to fight Igor Vovchanchyn at Pride 13 - Collision Course , but re-injured his neck during training two weeks before the fight, the same serious neck injury that ended his WWF career.
Shamrock engaged in a feud with Don Frye during his career in the Pride Fighting Championships , whose background was Don Frye 's trash talking.
In , Alicia Webb also known as Ryan Shamrock dated Ken Shamrock until early Frye made comments to the effect that Shamrock cheated on and divorced his wife to date a young girl Alicia Webb was 19 and Ken Shamrock was 35 when they started dating.
Frye also joked that Ken's at the time estranged father Bob and brother Frank would be in Frye's corner for the fight. Ken Shamrock was enraged by Frye's trash talk, causing a feud between Shamrock and Frye.
Since then, Frye has stated that he only resorted to personal trash talk to make Ken want to fight him. Frye said: "I saw Ken Shamrock whoop him Dan Severn at UFC 6 and I thought, "That's a guy I gotta fight.
Anybody who can whoop Dan Severn like that has gotta be a man and I want to test my size against his size. I had the chance to talk trash and they gave me the fight; I crossed the line.
I wasn't professional about it, but Ken was and after the fight, we shook hands and went our separate ways. Frye got the edge on a series of clinch battles, while Shamrock dropped down for an ankle lock and transitioned into both a kneebar and a toehold , wrenching Frye's leg badly; however, despite the damage, Frye refused to tap out and managed to knock Shamrock down in a subsequent punching exchange.
The bout moved to the mat, where Shamrock attempted another ankle lock, only for Frye to try to counter with one of his own and finally refusing to tap out by sheer will until the time ran out.
Shamrock lost a close split decision,   and the two hugged after the fight ended, putting an end to their rivalry.
In October , Shamrock lost to Kazushi Sakuraba in Pride: Fully Loaded by TKO. Three minutes into the bout, Sakuraba struck through Shamrock's guard with a left hand.
Shamrock staggered back and ultimately fell into the ropes, his head hanging out of the ring and his back turned to Sakuraba. Sakuraba rushed in to follow up, but before any meaningful offense could be launched, the fight was halted by referee Yuji Shimada.
Shamrock got up following the KO and protested vigorously. Opinions were mixed regarding the KO's legitimacy, though Ken's adopted brother and rival, Frank , stated to believe the stoppage was justified.
A feud between Shamrock's Lion's Den camp and Tito Ortiz began to build on January 8, , at UFC On March 5, , at UFC 19 , after Ortiz won by referee stoppage in his rematch with Guy Mezger , he immediately flipped off the Lion's Den corner and then put on a shirt that said "Gay Mezger is my Bitch".
After Shamrock saw the shirt, he yelled into the octagon "Hey Tito, don't let me see you wearing that shirt! Shamrock leaped onto the top of the cage, screaming at Ortiz and angrily waving his finger in Ortiz's face.
Referee John McCarthy picked Ortiz up and carried him across the octagon to prevent the situation from escalating further. The situation was escalated to the point that police and security had to be called in to monitor the situation.
On November 22, , at UFC 40 , nearly four years after the confrontation at UFC 19 , Shamrock returned to the UFC to fight Ortiz in a title match for the UFC Light Heavyweight Championship.
Ortiz shed light upon his feelings before the fight in his book This is Gonna Hurt: The Life of a Mixed Martial Arts Champion ; "Ken Shamrock is a real good fighter.
I was not intimidated by him, but I guess you can say I was a little bit afraid. The match garnered mainstream attention from media outlets such as ESPN and USA Today.
White said, "the reason we did so well on UFC 40 was because of Ken Shamrock and the fact that everyone knew who he was. However, Ortiz recovered shortly after and went on to dominate the fight with takedowns and ground-and-pound.
Right before Round 4 started, Shamrock's cornerman threw in the towel and Ortiz successfully defended the UFC Light Heavyweight Championship.
After the fight was over, Shamrock revealed that he fought Ortiz with a torn ACL. He also seriously contemplated retirement from MMA, citing the fact that he had never lost two fights in a row in his career before and he had a buildup of injuries.
In , Shamrock had surgery to repair his ACL. On November 21, , at UFC 45 , Royce Gracie and Shamrock became the first inductees to the UFC Hall of Fame.
UFC President Dana White said, "We feel that no two individuals are more deserving than Royce and Ken to be the charter members.
Their contributions to our sport, both inside and outside the Octagon, may never be equaled. The rematch saw Shamrock once again win, this time by way of KO.
Shamrock injured his shoulder during the fight against Kimo. He originally thought it was just "wear and tear", but an MRI revealed a torn rotator cuff.
Shamrock then had to have surgery to repair it. On April 9, , at The Ultimate Fighter finale Shamrock faced Rich Franklin. Shamrock applied a heel hook early in the fight that put Franklin on crutches for a week,  but Franklin escaped and defeated Shamrock by a TKO.
On November 19, , at UFC 56 , Dana White , the UFC president, announced that Shamrock would be one of the coaches along with Tito Ortiz for the upcoming third season of The Ultimate Fighter.
Shamrock was portrayed badly on the show, feuding with his fighters and often appearing uninterested. Shamrock admitted to doing a poor job with his fighters: "I failed them miserably, completely.
So I have to figure out a way to get this And I've trained dozens of guys to be champs in other organizations. In Pancrase, I had eight fighters in the top ten at one point.
I was the champion and Masakatsu Funaki was the number one contender. The rest were all Lion's Den fighters. My reputation doesn't have to be spoken for or defended.
The UFC and Spike TV did what they thought they needed to do for ratings, but in the end, my fans, my family and my God know exactly who I am.
On July 8, , at UFC 61 , the rematch between Shamrock and Ortiz took place. Shamrock lost the rematch with Ortiz in of the first round by a technical knockout.
During the match, referee Herb Dean deemed that Shamrock was no longer able to intelligently defend himself and stopped the fight. Shamrock and the crowd were furious at the early stoppage and Dana White immediately put together a rematch on television.
At Ortiz vs. Shamrock 3: The Final Chapter on October 10, , Shamrock was defeated again by Ortiz by KO after referee John McCarthy stopped the fight following multiple undefended fist strikes.
Immediately after the fight, Ortiz initially celebrated his victory with a mocking "grave digger" routine and a T-shirt that said, "Punishing Him Into Retirement" after giving him the finger.
However, Shamrock approached Ortiz and, after the two talked for several seconds, Shamrock said they could put all of their animosity aside as it was always "just business", shaking hands and burying the hatchet.
UFC President Dana White said the day after Shamrock's fight with Ortiz, "Last night was a turning point for the UFC.
This will further drive the evolution of mixed martial arts into a mainstream sport. Shamrock was rumored to fight Englishman Steve McDonald at UFC 75 ,  but he was ultimately released from his UFC contract in June Shamrock stated that the UFC released him solely because of his decision to coach in the International Fight League.
