UFC Hall of Fame: Ken Shamrock
A true legend, Ken Shamrock fought in UFC 1 and chased the rematch with Royce Gracie for four years until he fought a 36-minute draw with the Brazilian at UFC 5. Almost everybody believes Shamrock would have been judged the winner, had a scoring system been in place in the early UFCs. From there, Shamrock won the UFC Superfight Title, the precursor to the UFC heavyweight title, and as a Pancrase world champion and King of Pancrase tournament champion, Shamrock’s accomplishments outside the UFC were equally impressive. He holds victories over icons like Bas Rutten (twice), Masakatsu Funaki (twice), Maurice Smith, Dan Severn and Kimo and his years-long feud with Tito Ortiz was perhaps the most important in UFC history. He took his place in history when he was inducted into the newly created UFC Hall of Fame alongside his great rival Gracie in 2003.
