Frank Shamrock officially retires from the sport of Mixed Martial Arts

MMA legend, Frank Shamrock last night retired from the sport of mixed martial arts after twenty plus years in the game, adding it was an honour to bleed, break bones, and entertain the fans for all these years.

Shamrock, speaking inside the cage last night in San Jose, California, said:

“My time has come. The stars like Gilbert Melendez and Cristiane Cyborg. They are the future and I am the past. I’m 37 years old now and my time has come. Tonight I announce my retirement and I say this will be the last time I walk into this cage as a fighter. It was an honour to bleed for you, to break my bones for you, and to entertain you.”
