Greenville, SC (PRWEB) June 18, 2015
On Friday night, June 19, MMA/WWF legend Ken Shamrock fights internet sensation Kimbo Slice live on Spike TV, starting at 9 pm EST. But today, the world finally gets to see Ken facing off against the toughest opponent he’s ever had to face: Himself.
In a new documentary directed by Darren Wilson, and a full 6 years in the making, Ken gives the deepest ever look at his life, struggles, and faith in the revealing and brutally honest film, THE GREATEST FIGHT. The film is available to view exclusively online for a 48-hour period starting today, at http://thegreatestfight.com.
Ken Shamrock, who was a part of the first group inducted into the UFC Hall of Fame, has always been a polarizing figure in the world of MMA. Whether it was his feuds with fellow fighters (Tito Ortiz, Frank Shamrock) or his rocky relationship with UFC boss Dana White, Ken has always been an open book. But this new film looks to show the world the “real” Ken Shamrock—the conflicted, violent fighter who is desperate to atone for his past sins and mistakes.
In the weeks leading up to his fight with Kimbo, Ken has won the grudging respect of many in the MMA world who had long pegged him as a washed up fighter. With a back-to-the-basics workout regiment and that flare for showmanship that won him so many fans and enemies back in his WWF days, Ken has built the buzz surrounding his fight with Kimbo to a pitch that belies the fact that it will be a battle between 51 year-old and 41 year-old men. Ken Shamrock fighting anyone is still enough to get many MMA fans’ blood pumping, and this new film about his lifelong struggle against himself should do the same.
