Ken Shamrock and UFC President Dana White buried the hatchet recently. The Worlds Most Dangerous Man joined Ariel Helwani on The MMA Hour to discuss moving forward with Dana White.
“It was just kind of the way things happened,” Shamrock said. “It has always been in the back of my mind. I kind always wanted to be able to let this go. I know I had my moments where it was more personal for me., as Dana [White] has had his. As time went on, it just got to a point where no matter what I was fighting for, whether it was for fighter pay or fighter treatment, or whether it was the way that I had been treated, it just seemed like banging my head against a wall. It was just becoming so repetitious. Every time my name got mentioned, I got bashed.
“So I saw the opportunity to at least reach out and squash it.”
Shamrock hopes that this will be the start of a better relationship with Dana and hopes the two can build on their newfound mutual respect.
“I think we can move forward and build things without trashing one another. So I decided that it was time for us to talk. I wanted to bury the hatchet, and Dana felt the same. I think we both still kinda feel the way we feel, but the way we developed out of it is the right way.”Tags: Dana White, featured, Ken Shamrock, mma, ufc
