Ken Shamrock and Tank Abbott both ended their respective losing streaks with wins at the Wargods and KSP co-promoted “Valentine’s Eve Massacre” show on Friday night in Fresno, California.
Shamrock floored replacement opponent Ross Clifton with a right hand just seconds into their bout before finishing him off with an armbar moments later in the first round. Abbott put his infamous knockout power on display, putting Mike Bourke down for the count with a right hand just 29 seconds into their featured attraction. The two MMA pioneers will now likely clash in a showdown later this year that could mark the final professional bout for both fighters.
