    Ken Shamrock to launch another BK fight promotion



    UFC Hall of Famer Ken Shamrock is getting back into the fight business by launching his own bare knuckle fighting promotion.
    The first Valor BK event is scheduled for Sept. 21 at the 4 Bears Casino and Lodge in New Town, North Dakota. There’s no word yet on the fights being televised, although the Valor BK website states events will be available through “network, digital, and pay-per-view (PPV) platforms.”

    We must reject the idea that every time a law's broken, society is guilty rather than the lawbreaker. It is time to restore the American precept that each individual is accountable for his actions.

    I saw on twitter someone asked "why do we need another BKF org?"....response: "because we need a Bellator of BKF"

    At the same time I am rolling my eyes at this, I'm sure Ken would have tons of connections with fighters (has beens) who might want to try this for a pay check...guys like Leben etc...or even recent UFC castaways like Lobov or any other fighter with a name. If the fights themselves can deliver unlike the last event it might have a spec of a chance.

    I have no clue as to the answer but do you think Ken still has good connections with the new wave of "has beens"

    Yeah, but I'd imagine with an org like this there won't be big money to entice the names they'd need to make it succeed.

    That said, I seen today that they're aiming for Shammy vs Mark Coleman to headline their first event! Yep, that same Mark Coleman who was not so long ago seriously ill. These fighters NEVER retire!
