EliteXC's newest signee -- UFC Hall of Famer Ken Shamrock (28-12-2) -- will take on Cage Rage veteran Robert "Buzz" Berry (11-7) at Cage Rage 25: "Bring It On" in London, England, on March 8, according to CageRage.com.
It was just announced this week that Shamrock and his son, Ryan, would compete on the card. No opponent has been announced yet for the younger Shamrock.
For the "Worlds Most Dangerous Man" this will be his first fight since October 2006 when he was stopped by Tito Ortiz for the third time. Despite his recent lack of success, he sounded confident earlier this week that he could ascend up to the top with a few wins.
Here's a snip:
"This is a great opportunity with EliteXC. Give me a fight or two and I will be ready to fight anybody."
Shamrock better be careful with his first fight -- he has lost six of his last seven contests.
Berry's overall record is decent (11-7). He comes right at his opponents and -- win or lose -- all but one of his fights have ended in the first round.
He's not a big time name and he doesn't really hold any big wins over anyone, but he's fought nine times in the last two years. During that same time Shamrock has fought twice ... and we all know how those fights went.
It's going to be real interesting to see if Shamrock can shake of the ring rust and get back in fight shape at 44 years old.
