Frank Shamrock: Dana White Is "A Total Douchebag And A Bully"

“Well, honestly, I didn’t really care, but my wife was pretty pissed that I wasn’t in the Hall of Fame. I don’t care. I think it’s awesome that Tito’s in. He deserves to be in there. I believe I should be in the Hall of Fame, but it ain’t my Hall of Fame. If they wanna put me in, that’s great. It’s not gonna keep me up at night… Here’s my thing. I did everything I could for the sport, from speaking to the commissions to presenting in front of cable companies — anything and everything, I was hired to go do it. I was a great spokesman, and I believe in this sport. If they wanna put me in or not, it’s totally up to them. I think it’s just a big knuckle-fest. God bless Tito, and I’m real proud that he’s made it… It’s definitely personal between Dana and I. To further that, I’ve done everything I can possibly do for this sport. I hope that would include UFC. You know, Dana and I don’t get along. I think he’s a total douchebag and a bully. I just, I got no breath for him.”

In a recent appearance on Spike TV’s MMA Uncensored Live, Frank Shamrock discusses the UFC Hall of Fame and his exclusion from it.

    • GET RID OF FITCH (forever) says:

      Never really liked Shamrock but i have a whole new respect for him now for calling Dana a “bully” and a “douchbag” on national T.V.. 100 % true dana is a bully and without Fertitats money he would still be mopping floors at the gym he use to work at doing boxercise with fatt woman

    • jones says:

      not bitter at alllll/..frank and ken were the first to start there own lions den shit..then everyone started makin gyms…and they were in it longest,,,everyone thinkins bas rutten is this great king of pancrase but he lost to ken in pancrase and went 1-1 with frank…the nly reason bas is looked at as better then frank and ken is cuz bas retired befor mma changed and became more rounded…frank was i believ the first mw champ at 200 beating tito ortiz…if tito made it 100 percent frank should have made it long long ago,,,even though kens a dick he belong also….ken shamrock was the name for ufc along with gracie in the 90s… dana realy dont like frank cuz frank aint a bitch and speaks the truth dana is a bully,,,it should not be up to him who is in hall of fame, should be the fans who remembr there fighters

    • the Natural says:

      Frank shamrock in his prime u could make the argument that he was the best UFC ever !!! Practically walked thru the UFC at the time and had to go outside UFC at time for comp. Dana white doesn’t like any of his old fighters anybody that fought in the UFC wen it wasn’t in it’s prime like it’s there fault. But frank def shld be in the UFC H O F unless u have some personally shoved up your ass his brother shld be in there cause that’s y I started watching UFC or y I would watch the UFC I poorly didn’t even know the name of the promo at the time. Just knew the baddest man on the planet was fighting

      • jones says:

        the natural….i agree with everything you said…at that time i also believe both shamrocks would have beat bas rutten,and i think bas gets to much love,the shamrocks both beat bas befor,if bas fought longer an not retire early he would have way more losses like shamrocks,,,,,my writing and my grammer is very poor and hard to follow sometimes,,you are the only person i have seen on here that is far worse then me,,congrats

  2. Joe says:

    Sounds bitter, but it’s the UFC HOF, not the Mixed Martial Arts Hall Of Fame. So while he may have contributed to the sport, how much did he contribute to building the UFC? Plus, its based primarily on if Dana likes you. Mask was a great guy who stated a good company (TapOut) but placed on the Hall of fame? The UFC HOF rules are loose at best. The criteria to make it in is whatever Dana wants it to be.

    • Are u for real? Frank were in the UFC long before Dana started to lose his hair!

    • Kyle says:

      You know DICK about MMA if you don’t know what Frank did for the company during their dark period.

    • Kevin says:

      Frank was the ONLY undefeated LHW champ in the UFC Joe……

      • T.DADDY says:

        And he sukkd big time.. ther wasn’t any good comp back then like ther is now… He wudnt last with the fighters from today… Both him and ken are way overrated..

        • Paul Harris says:

          Frank was a bad ass in his time. You don’t know what you talkin about.

        • West says:

          He beat Tito’s ass , didnt he ? And was undefeated for almost 10 years..the only thing sucking is your knowledge of MMA history T.Daddy

        • Claude says:

          HE beat Tito didnt he? and made Dan Henderson tap, the only thing sucking is your knowledge of MMA History T Daddy

        • T.DADDY says:

          No the only thing sukkin is ur lips on this chumps balls… If he was just coming in the ufc he wud get smashed with todays fighters.. ther was only like 6 guys in the division back then… Lmao…And so wat he beat tito.. he is another overrated fighter..

    • Ken says:

      You’re an idiot Joe, you shouldn’t even be posting comments on here if they’re going to be so retarded… And Frank absolutley be in the H O F!!! Him and his brother going to war is why I started watching the UFC

      • Joe says:

        First of all, your grammar is shit, so you’re pretty much the idiot, second, frank was long gone before UFC and spike forged its relationship and before the first ultimate fighter. It was during that time of the company that the UFC slowly gained acceptance with the mainstream audience and built the UFC to what it is today, so take your bigot point of views and shove it up your ass your fucking moron. If you can’t disagree diplomatically, then you better follow up your counter with a well thought out argument as to why you disagreed with my post. It’s seriously people like you that are wrong with the world. I didn’t write that Frank should not be in an HOF. The point, the main message from my post, was to agree in part with Frank that Dana is going to continue doing what he wants to include who he places in UFC’s HOF. And, as long as Dana operates in such a manner, the credance to the UFC’s HOF will always be called into question. So everyone that replied to me and wrote bullshit and insults should enroll in an English writing course before they step in front of a well educated M’F like myself.

  4. Paul says:

    Bloody hell , looks like frank shamrock shouldn’t worry about the hall of fame , looks like he’s got aids

  5. Chuck MMA says:

    I watched that live last night. Shamrock is VERY bitter. You could see it in his face, but Mike Straka made a very good point. Shamrock only fought 5 fights in the UFC. How does that compare to the current H.O.F.’ers? Shamrock should just be thankful that Dana doesn’t fire him from his SHO gig and keep his nose clean. He also was very bitter about his brother in that interview.

    • mj says:

      5 fights, when the UFC was doing how many cards a year? Dana cant fire him, if he could he would have. Show time is far bigger then the UFC, dont kid yourself. They love frank and he isnt going anywhere.

    • GET RID OF FITCH (forever) says:

      Howmany fights did Brock have and you know dana wil put him in the HOF

    • Joe says:

      Exactly…. Only 5 fights on the UFC!!!! Thank you for bringing facts into the equation. So everyone insulting everyone else how does five fights well before UFC gained acceptance into the mainstream warrant home being placed in UFC’s HOF?

  6. Gor says:

    Frank Shamrock did far more for the sport of MMA than run a mike. He was a great champion and spokeperson in the early days of both the sport of MMA, and the UFC. He was considered to be one of the greatest and most complete fighters in the entire world at the time he walked away from the sport.

    Sadly, as much as Dana White has done for the sport we love (and don’t kid yourselves… we would NOT be seeing this sport anywhere near what it is now without him), he can be an immature, unprofessional, bullying drama queen. He lets his own personal vendettas try to rewrite the history of this great sport.

    I hope that Dana White eventually matures as a man and gets over himself enough to show the true history of the sport. It would be nice to see him put some serious thought into a full fledged MMA Hall of Fame where we can honor ALL of the athletes who have carved out their place in the history of this sport. It is understandable that he wishes the UFC ‘brand’ to be the NFL of Mixed Martial Arts. It is also understandable that he would do pretty much anything to keep it at the top. It is quite obvious that he has already reached the top of the mountain in this respect. It would not harm the UFC in any way to support a full fledged MMA HOV. Here’s to hope that someday it will happen!

    Frank Sharock changed Tito and many other fighters. He beat dan henderson fast and got Dan into MMA toyed with a very disrespectful John Lober(who made comments about a little girl who was killed), sub´d Jackson an olympic gold medalist in seconds, got Tito to anarobic and pushed him over the edge with a game plan to work around Tito´s GnP strenght. He also has The BEST KO slam of all time over Igor. Went into the splits almost…He did that as a middle weight fighting LHWs. If Shamrock wasnt that good then why did BJ train with him and credit him with so much. He has an ego, he might be a prick, but he had the look, and was the first real poster boy for MMA. If you dont belive me then go look up MMA mags and he really was the poster boy. I personally think he should patch things up with dana, stop the pissing contest, because no body wins against the boss and Dana like always has show that he will give someone what they deserve. Huge Frank fan, but dana would be crazy to put him in without a public apology to the UFC.

    • Gor says:

      Great perspective mj… I agree that Frank could at least attempt to drop the bitterness and do what HE can as a professional to bridge the gap. White has indeed shown time and time again that things are not always set in stone… no matter how emotionally charged things may once have been. Hell, Tito Ortiz is the most obvious example. The fact that Dana and Tito ‘fixed’ things is living proof that Whie is capable of forgiveness if enough effort is made to deserve it.

    • T.DADDY says:

      Rampage has the best ko slam of all time.. it was voted… This guy is a chump that never beat any good fighters.. tito?? Tito was never that good to begin with.. hendo?? Hendo was really young and wud destroy frank today.. this guy dong deserve shit

      • BXER says:

        And you don’t deserve to post anymore comments,you the most stupid and ignorant MMA fan,you don’t have to like the guy,but if you going to talk shit educate yourself in the topic before you make another stupid and ignorant comment,is very clear you don’t know nothing about MMA history,,,,so please show how smart you are and don’t post anymore stupidity.

        • Claude says:

          Totally Agree with you BXER ..T.DADDY is either trolling or half retarded. maybe both

  8. jbeamazing says:

    back when mma was weak and people had 1 discipline Frank was good it’s not like he would be special if he was starting out in 2012 but back in the day he did some things,But when you hear him call strikeforce fights it makes you feel like he has no clue what he is seeing something about a 40 year old just getting his braces removed calling anyone a Douchebag is kinda lame sides I herd roids make your teeth crooked lol

    • mj says:

      Your comments are self canceling. Back when MixedMartialAarts was weak(not true) and people had 1 discipline. Ok lets say your correct on everything you say, then you pretty must be bipolar. MMA fighters with 1 discipline….you know the word, it ends with moron. As for calling dana a douchebag, i agree not the best thing to say… but then turning into a internet tough guy by making a shot at frank´s teeth doesnt make sense. You say a guy is a douche for talking crap, he did somethings back in the day lmao and today he wouldnt be special. I´ll educated you ok, he did alot back then with a sport that had very little sponsors, he must be special still, because your talking about him today. The end and biggest would be saying a guy who was the first UFC LHW champion has no clue what is going on in a fight. You really showed that not only are you a band wagon jumper, but you love arm rest.

      • Schweez says:

        You all need to wake up and realize that mma back then was all about who was the baddest man who was the toughest, not who had the most technique. Guys would test their discipline against others and see which was best. It was not viewed as a sport by most so most fighters didn’t train more than one thing. MMA has grown leaps and bounds. Training methods for every sport have that’s why atheletes are bigger better faster. Hormones being put into meats for increase body weight and maturity plus all kinds of peds play a great role in the evolution of atlethes as well.

      • jbeamazing says:

        I get it you want to suck his dick cool guy I wont judge you but I said nothing that was a tough guy comment let me break you down now you call people that have options on the internet tough guys and pussy’s because you can relate to being a pussy look mj not everyone’s a bitch that comments just because you are

        • jbeamazing says:

          and band wagon jumper? when have you herd me say I ever liked the guy you are either frank shamrock or have never herd frank talk. but your right about 1 thing he was the first ufc light heavy weight champ by beating a guy with 3 fights total the only fighter he beat that was good was tito and bas and he beat bas in a 1 round fight in the king of Pancrase tournament and only has 5 fights in the ufc with his last fight there in 1999 so yeah that was back in the day smart one

      • jbeamazing says:

        he won the first l h w tittle against a guy with 3 fights

        • mj says:

          @jeamnotamazing you´re a joke, but you know that. Frank isnt good because his isnt on your latest training game UFC3 gotcha.

  9. Kirk says:

    5 fights doesn’t warrant HOF stature. Yes he did lots for the sport. Yes he had some great fights, but he doesn’t belong in the UFC hall of fame. No WAY.

  10. chris says:

    He left the UFC instead of helping to build it like guys like Tito did. Frank is a prick and never cared for the sport or its image. Like blatantly kneeing Renzo on the ground and admitting it, giving the old “this is a fight” why he felt rules didn’t apply to him I don’t get. Dana can be a prick of course but he has done a lotY for the sport not just himself. Unlike Frank shamrock a guy who calls himself “the legend” …he’s a joke

  11. The Dirty Sanchez says:

    Frank was pretty beast back in the day but seeing him last night I was like damn time hasn’t been grateful to you at all.

  12. ballsackface says:

    frank was awesome but he has to realise that its not personal.
    he probably has a bigger issue with tito than he does with frank

    frank needs to stop being a douche and slamming everyone he has a dissagreement with

    franks problem is he seems a bit fake at times and tries to hard to be the big MMA person rather than being “frank shamrock”
    everyone in the HOF are people that have been themselves and not been a bit fake

    Frank is a legend but hes a cunty fakey fake

    • GET RID OF FITCH (forever) says:

      Ken Shamrock isn’t “FAKE” The man has been on ROIDS for 25 years and that is why Frank never respected him. I don’t think ROIDERS LIke Coleman, Shamrock should be in HOF. But we all know Brock ROIDED for years and years and Dana will for sure put him in HOF

      • ballsackface says:

        im not talking Ken, im talking frank and when ever frank is on interview hes talking like a programmed ferret and like hes trying to impress with his superior knowledge all the time.
        its his persona and i think thats what gets in the way of him and way people dont take him as seriously as they should.

  13. Bob says:

    Its what you did in the ring not outside of it. Also back then ufc was backyard bar fights in the begining. Royce gracia is the only guy from the past that should be inducted

  14. keiko says:

    Not only will he not get into the UFC HOF, he will probably lose his commentator job at Strikeforce. I think Tito and Dana had more of a rift between them, but Dana still put Tito in the HOF. Maybe Dana and company just do not think Frank is worthy. Sounds too much like sour grapes for a guy who allegedly does not care if he gets in or not.

  15. mike says:

    It’s the ufc hof and he only fought in 5 ufc fights. There are mid tier fighters with more ufc wins then him. Also any good as a fighter is over shadowed by how bad of am announcer he is.

  16. JBCantReadOrWriteWellLOL says:

    Half of you are dumb, ignorant fucks. Half of you are intelligent with well pieced together comments. I love seeing the vast spectrum of MMA fans. Gives a great perspective on everday life and the differences in human beings. We are obviously not created equal and darwinism exists to a great degree.

  17. GET RID OF FITCH (forever) says:

    You are a fucking idiot and probably bullied your intire life is why you act like you do. Everyon eon here would smash you like a bug and you know it

  18. JusRaw says:

    All these comments about shamrock being bitter or anything else are stupid! Frank should def be in the hall of fame! Check his fucking resume edited you start talking shit bitches!

    • mj says:

      Agreed, but most of these guys only know the fighters who are holding belts right now. their favorite fighter depends on his record and changes like the weather. pathetic kids that should stick to the ps3 and keep their mouths shut. IMO

      • ballsackface says:

        dont chat shit, you are probably a kid yourself
        ive been following ufc, mma since day one and that qualifies me to say frank shamrock is a twat
        a well know twat but still a twat

        • mj says:

          I was trained in the old cracker factory when you were getting your shit stained balls wiped by your mom lips. If you dont what im talking about, then you dont know shit about MMA or BJ.
