“Honestly, I think I can test him anywhere. He’s got big, heavy hands. Everyone says he punches hard and he probably does. But again, he doesn’t punch properly, in my opinion. He swings his hands, he moves his body back and forth trying to get as much power as he can, but there’s really no snap behind it. You can usually see the punches coming. I’m going to do what I need to do. If it goes to the ground, I’ll probably break his leg. I mean, no question. I will break his leg. If he gives it to me, I’m going to break it.”
- UFC Hall of Famer Ken Shamrock gives his thoughts on the potential outcome of his anticipated bout against heavyweight sensation Kevin “Kimbo Slice” Ferguson on October 4 on CBS to Sherdog.com.
Shamrock is correct. If the fight does indeed go to the ground, he has a massive advantage. His submission skills are legendary and he could easily break Slice’s leg if he wanted to. However Shamrock’s last handful of bouts put his comments in question. Will Ken push his pride aside and not stand with Kimbo?
