UFC Hall of Famer Ken Shamrock dropped a fight to internet sensation Kimbo Slice Friday night in the main event of Bellator 138. Ken had secured a rear naked choke that seemingly looked as though he would end the fight. However that was not the case as Slice easily escaped and was able to finish Shamrock on the feet moments after.

Many thought the bout was a fake and even UFC commentator Joe Rogan took to his podcast to voice his opinions on the matter. Shamrock didn’t take too kindly to the matter and responded to the naysayers via his Facebook:

“Are you kidding me some people just can’t stand the truth it seems like what ever I do there has to be some of you that got to have a reason why things don’t go the way they should it happens &I am very discouraged myself I had the choke very deep & I made a rookie mistake I tried to reset it after I saw him tap & that’s when I lost position my fault
& To set the record straight on the tap John McCarthy made it clear in the rules meeting do not look to the referee for help you do your job & I will do mine when kimbo taped it was not my job to make that call I should have continued putting that choke on till John stepped in I did not which was my fault &on top of it it was very week tap I believe he started to go out but I started to move in tighter on the choke instead of letting the choke work itself tighter as kimbo moved 

I wanted to win this fight very bad it did not happen that’s it plain & simple 

I.love what I do I have been away from any activities for 7 yrs. I came into this fight very rusty that was to be expected but really believed I would still win even being rusty & giving up 30lbs &being 51 with all that said I missed finishing him by a mistake one that would not have happened if I had not taken so much time out of the cage 

With that said I am very happy with my life &the way I live my life my family supports me my fans support me &I will continue doing what make me & my fans happy just as long as I can

Highly passionate MMA Journalist, and I've followed the sport ever since my favorite fighter, Vitor Belfort won the heavyweight tournament at UFC 12. After that I've tried to go to every local MMA event around the Gulf Coast and surrounding areas and decided to make it a point to have a career in some aspect in the fighting sport other than fighting in general (didn't want to ruin my face). I'm currently enrolled at Southeastern Louisiana University working towards a degree in Communication. I cover MMA, Boxing and Football for The Daily Star newspaper in my hometown of Hammond, Louisiana, in addition to working as a promotional writer for a local Boxing promotion known as BoxnCar and I cover boxing for 8countnews.com however SciFighting.com is my home. My main goal is to bring more publicity to MMA in my area and to the sport as a whole as all of us involved with the sport are merely scratching the surface and laying the foundation of what mixed martial arts competition will be further down the road.
