Over the past 23 years the UFC has had over 200 events. According to Shamrock, especially in the early days of the sport, backstage shenanigans in the UFC were common place. The first ten UFC numbered events were likely anything goes in terms of bending the rules, last minute changes, and overall promotional favoritism.
Shamrock has some ideas on why the deck stacked against him for his first two fights with Royce Gracie. The Gracie name was as much as part of the early UFCs as their horrible 90s logo, Jim Brown, a cheap looking cage, and overweight karate masters getting their face smashed in. Shamrock knew it was in the best interest of the UFC to have him lose to Royce Gracie.
Shamrock has theories, he’s got ideas, and Ken Wayne Shamrock will show you the paper trail that led him to losing to Royce Gracie not once but twice. Watch the dominos fall into to place as Shamrock explains why he must beat Gracie at Bellator 149 to clear his good name.
