Ken Shamrock shared his thoughts on this weekend’s Tito Ortiz vs. Alberto El Patron at Combate Americas’ event on Saturday. AXS TV has released comments from Shamrock as a preview to the Tito Vs. Alberto-What Side Are You On special that airs tonight on AXS and Fight Network.

In regard to the fight between Ortiz and El Patron, Shamrock said, “I think Tito [Ortiz] knows who he is. He’s had all the competition in the world and has always risen to the level of being a champion. Being confident is much different than being cocky. Being confident means he put in the training and he knows where he’s at, he knows who his opponent is, and he feels very comfortable where he’s going into this fight. Anybody that has an eye and understanding of fighting knows that Alberto [El Patron] is fighting an uphill battle. There’s no question. But, some of the things that I have seen form Alberto almost reminds me sometimes of when I was growing up, living in the street, having to struggle to get from here to there, fighting for everything that you can get. To me, that bids well for him going into the fight, knowing that he’s willing to do whatever he needs to do to try to win this fight. Which means even probably taking a whole lot of punishment, trying to get into the later rounds, and possibly catching Tito [Ortiz] when he’s wearing out.”

Tito Vs. Alberto-What Side Are You On airs at 10 PM ET/7 PM ET ahead of the PPV, which takes place tomorrow night in McAllen, Texas.
