Frank Shamrock: “Physically battling with Tito Ortiz was just retardedly hard.”

MMA legend, Frank Shamrock has determined the toughest fight of his entire career, his September 1999 submission win over Tito Ortiz, adding “physically battling with Tito was just retardedly hard.”

Shamrock, speaking via MMAWeekly.com, said:

“They all kind of stand out for different reasons. But I’d say my physical, the greatest physical application of martial arts I’ve ever applied, was against Tito Ortiz just because he was so big. It took everything I had in my arsenal of martial arts skills to beat him.

“I’ve had other fights that… fighting Phil Baroni with a blown out knee was like the hardest mental thing I’ve ever done, but physically battling with Tito was just retardedly hard.”
