$Kala: Frank Shamrock offered to throw a fight against Kimbo

On the date of the infamous event, Ken Shamrock was forced out of the fight due to a cut and it's been widely known that Shamrock, an assigned commentator for the show, offered to take the fight on late notice. But on Sunday's episode of's Rewind show, Shaw made a startling claim that Frank more than just offered his services to step in and replace Ken.

"Frank Shamrock pulled me in the back of a room, turned the music up and offered to work the fight against Kimbo Slice," Shaw told Jeff Sherwood.

Frank denies:

"No, absolutely not," Shamrock said Monday on The MMA Hour, when asked by host Ariel Helwani about Shaw's claim. "That's some movie b.s. right there."

Who do you believe?

I believe Frank.

The best part in Shamrock's rebuttal was when he said, "Where would I get the music at? What are you talking about here? Do I just carry a beatbox with me?"

I have zero doubts whatsoever that Frank Shamrock said that.

I'm siding with Shammy for once. He's the lesser of the assclowns.

I'm sure the truth lies somewhere in the middle. I mean, Shaw, as slimy as he is, wouldn't just make this up years after the fact for no good reason. Why would he? Nothing to gain from it at this point. Frank has no credibility himself. He's already admitted to basically throwing the Cung Le fight.

I have no doubt that Frank and Shaw somehow came to an agreement that he'd throw the fight, but then they decided it'd just be easier to get Seth in there and pay him to stand, thinking that Kimbo would knock him out.

More than anything, I'm glad Frank continues to make a fool of himself.
