Ken Shamrock didnâ€™t make it out of the first round last night at Cage Rage 25 in London, where he got knocked out shortly after the 3 minute mark by Robert â€œBuzzâ€ Berry.Â Not to take anything away from Berry, but anyone who watched Shamrock in that fight probably thought of the word â€œretirementâ€ at least once.Â After Kenâ€™s lackluster performance, selling a Shamrock-Kimbo Slice match on network television is obviously going to be a little more difficult, assuming EliteXC still wishes to go that route.
