“I’m trying to put myself on the opposite side of the question when people ask me, ‘why are you doing this?’ And I keep getting the same question, over and over again. I’m trying to put myself on the other side of that so I understand why it is that I keep getting asked the same question. And I think the reason being is that it’s probably difficult for someone to understand.”

“I’m not really gaining anything (by returning to the cage). I’m not looking to gain anything. I’m hoping to live my life to its fullest. I really enjoy what I do.”

“I enjoy sparring, I enjoy game planning, setting strategies, and working with a group of people to accomplish a goal. In the end, when you accomplish that goal, there’s no better feeling in the world than to have a group of people who set out on a journey and they accomplish the goal they set out on together with all the plans working out the way you wanted them to. You’re standing there at the end getting your hand raised and everyone is in the zone, endorphins are running; it’s a great feeling. I don’t know what to compare it to but it’s a feeling you never want to lose but you know it’s going to have to go away.”

That was Ken Shamrock’s answer when he was asked, during a recent media conference call, about why he has returned to fight again. Shamrock will meet Kimbo Slice this Friday at Bellator 138.
