"We were hoping to put together a fight in March, but now it looks like that may not happen. We might have to wait for April or May. Who knows if it will ever happen. Frank Shamrock and I have verbally agreed to fight each other, but from what I understand he’s being difficult in the negotiations. For whatever reason he may have, I think it’s too bad because I think it’s the type of fight that would draw a lot of attention. It would be two guys that were UFC champions and have done a lot for that organization, and now they’re involved with Strikeforce. I think it just made sense. But for whatever reason I think he’s having trouble pulling the trigger. He may be nervous about getting slapped around, but that’s the way it sits right now. Hopefully I can find someone else to fight if he doesn’t want to do it. I want to get in there before Summer."

Shuri-ryu karate and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu black Pat Miletich (29-7-2) contemplates having just his third fight since 2002 by verbally agreeing to trade blows with fellow MMA "Legend" Frank Shamrock in late Spring or early Summer 2010. "The Croatian Sensation" returned to the fight game by knocking out Thomas Denny at Adrenaline MMA 2 in December 2008. Both Miletich and Lil' Shammy are currently free agents, which means that the former IFL Coaches don't yet have a home for their planned scrap. Is Strikeforce the probable destination? Or will Shamrock's "difficult negotiations" end this fight before it even begins?
