Shamrock, 58, posted a shirtless picture of himself on social media that shocked many combat sports fans.
Ken captioned the post: “Another Week, Another Chance to be Amazing. Keep on pushing with your goals. When it gets hard just remember that’s the point. There is no meaning to what you are trying to achieve if you don’t put in the work.”
After growing up in a wrestling background, Shamrock made his professional MMA debut in 1993 against Masakatsu Funaki.
Shamrock would compete a few times under the promotion ‘Pancrase: Yes, We Are Hybrid Wrestlers’ before competing at UFC 1 in November of 1993.
He would submit Patrick Smith before losing to Royce Gracie.
Shamrock would return to the Pancrase scene before stepping foot back inside the UFC in 1994 for UFC 3.
In what was an intriguing career, Shamrock left the UFC in 2006 following a defeat to Tito Ortiz.
With that being said, he still competed in MMA with various regional promotions.
It looked as if he was going to retire in 2010. However, in 2015, he returned to the Bellator scene and fought both Kimbo Slice and Royce Gracie, losing both times.
Shamrock was also a big star in the WWE industry. Prior to competing in MMA, Ken would train in wrestling.
Even throughout his MMA career, Shamrock would still find a lot of time to compete in the wrestling banner.
With a professional MMA record of 28-17-2, Shamrock will always go down as an iconic figure in combat sports.
Even after retiring, it is clear to see that he is still taking training very seriously, and has still not shown any sign of slowing down despite his age.
