UFC Hall of Famer Ken Shamrock admits to steroid use

"Absolutely."

That was Ken Shamrock's answer to HDNet's Mike Straka's question of whether the UFC Hall of Famer ever used steroids.

It should come as no surprise, considering "The (former) World's Most Dangerous Man" was popped by the California State Athletic Commission (CSAC) for steroids after the then 45-year-old picked up a win (his first in five years) over Ross Clifton in 2009.

At the time, he blamed it on "over-the-counter products."

He sang a way different tune last night:

"They want home runs, baby. They want people jacking them out of the park. But then when they find out about it they want to stick their heads in the sand and say, 'How bad, that was stupid, you're crazy, don't let him in the hall of fame.' It's like let's point the finger... Nobody wants to take responsibility, but everyone wants to see it... It's like going to the grocery store. It's that easy. It's that simple."

Chicks dig the long ball, eh Ken?

Apparently Shamrock graduated from the same performance enhancing drugs use school as our dear friends Barry, Mark and Jose.

Are you shocked by this admission, or just shocked that this admission didn't come until now?

Sound off, Maniacs.
