Ken Shamrock slams Joe Rogan over phony fix: 'He could have ruined my career and my life'

"Why in the world would someone in Joe Rogan's position sound off on something like that when there's no proof, when it's just speculation of his thoughts of what he thought? That could literally ruin somebody's career. That's like me going out there and telling his wife that he cheated on his wife, yet I don't have any proof, but someone just said something. Those are things, when you say them being in a professional position where you have the people's ear and you have a responsibility to make sure that whatever you say, you can back up, that you could prove, and not just say it because you think it. Because you ruin people's lives on something that you have no proof. And he's wrong what he's saying. He's wrong what he's saying, and therefore he could have ruined my career and my life on what he's saying, when there's no proof to it."

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) color commentator Joe Rogan was one of the first high-profile voices to sound off on the Bellator 138 mixed martial arts (MMA) main event (watch it), which took place earlier this month (Fri., June 19, 2015) on Spike TV from inside Scottrade Center is St. Louis, Missouri. In fact, Rogan insisted the fight between Kimbo Slice and Ken Shamrock looked "fake as fuck," furthering speculation that "Kimbo vs. Shamrock" was fixed (despite pleas to the contrary). Well, those comments (read 'em) didn't sit too well with "The World's Most Dangerous Man," who told our friends at Submission Radio that Rogan's rant was not only irresponsible, it nearly ruined a combat sports career that dates back to the early nineties. And if anyone is going to ruin Shamrock's career, it's going to be Shamrock, so Rogan and Co. need to butt out!
