Dana White: Ken Shamrock Is Past His Prime, Kimbo Slice Sucks

As you would expect, UFC President Dana White doesn't think highly of the upcoming EliteXC match-up between Ken Shamrock and Kimbo Slice:

"Ken is way past his prime," White said. "It gets to the point where it's dangerous for that guy to still be fighting. That being said, he still might beat Kimbo. Kimbo sucks."

I agree with White that there have to be concerns about whether it's safe for Shamrock to keep fighting. I questioned when the fight was first announced whether Shamrock could pass his physical, and I continue to wonder whether a guy who has lost each of his last five fights by first-round knockout or technical knockout should really keep fighting.

Of course, Shamrock was way past his prime when White put him in the Octagon against Tito Ortiz two years ago, so I'm not sure that White is really all that concerned about the danger of Shamrock fighting.
