MMA legend Ken Shamrock was at the past weekend's UFC Fan Expo. It didn't take long for someone to put a camera in his face, and the fun quickly ensued. 

The former UFC and WWE star first thanked all his fans, noting this was the first fan expo he ever attended. He was very appreciative of the fan support he's received over the years.

"I get to get out and meet all those people that supported me for all those years," Shamrock said.

"To me, it's a great, great honor for me to be come out here and mingle with all these fans and get to know these people that have been around me for many years."

Shamrock also addressed the issue of fighting again in the future but said he would only do so on "his terms." He also listed a who's who of MMA (from 10 years ago) that he'd like to fight.

"I got guys out there like Tank Abbott and Dan Severn that I'd like to fight for no one else but me, not for TV ratings or anyone but myself," Shamrock said.

"But also too, there's guys out there like Mark Coleman and Pedro Rizzo, guys that were in my time that I never got to fight."

All of those fights would be must see action if everyone could magically travel back to 1999, but I don't think you could scrounge up 10 people to watch them now.

The final fighter Shamrock called out was his own brother, Frank Shamrock. The two haven't always seen eye-to-eye, and Ken would like to beat a little respect into Frank.

"He (Frank) was very disrespectful to my father, who took care of him his whole life. I'd love to get my brother into the ring and beat the stuffing out of him and then hug him after it's over."

The UFC Fan Expo needs to happen more frequently, in my opinion. It's a great place for fighters that have been out of the spotlight to trumpet their cause, and look like fools, while giving all of us great material to laugh at and enjoy.
