It isn’t uncommon for MMA fighters to try their luck in professional wrestling. Although MMA and professional wrestling are miles apart, professional wrestling is a little more forgiving than MMA. MMA requires a lot of training, and one bad fight can halt a fighter’s career. Professional wrestling, although still very dangerous, is arguably a favorable choice for someone who wants to consistently earn a good amount of money. Working for a big promotion like The WWE is a dream for some MMA fighters actually. Ronda Rousey is a prime example.
Ken Shamrock is a former WWE Intercontenental Champion and a UFC Legend. He hasn’t wrestled for over 10 years and has still not official retired from MMA. He has fought many MMA legends inside the Octagon and is considered one of the pioneers of MMA.
Ken Shamrock is all set to make his return on January 31 at the Ultimate Bar Brawl event in Atlanta. The event is being promoted by McAloon Productions. He will wrestle "Filthy" Tom Lawlor, a fellow MMA fighter.
Shamrock last wrestled in November at a Battle Championship Wrestling indie event that took place in Australia. He defeated Gabriel Wolfe by submission. He also won the BCW tag title later on during that time. His match with Lawlor will be his first in the US after a really long time. His last wrestling match in the US took place in 2009 against Jimmy Jacobs.
