"I'm totally committed to returning to the cage injury free and anxious about fighting in England for the first time. It is very exciting for both Ryan and I. We will be making MMA history by being the first father and son to ever fight on the same card.... This is a great opportunity we are getting with EliteXC. Give me a fight or two and I will be ready to fight anybody."

UFC Hall of Fame inductee, Ken Shamrock, talks about his return to mixed martial arts (MMA) compettion under the EliteXC banner. In fact, the 43-year-old is already penciled in to mix it up at "EliteXC Presents: Cage Rage 25" on Saturday, March 8, at Wembley Arena in London, England. No opponent has been named. There's recent speculation that "The World's Most Dangerous Man" will perhaps challenge his adopted brother, Frank Shamrock, later on in 2008 or early 2009 in a coproduction with the San Jose-based StrikeForce outfit.
