Ken Shamrock Praises Tito Ortiz, Compares Ortiz to Tom Brady

November 19, 2019 | Posted by Jeffrey Harris recently interviewed UFC Hall of Famer Ken Shamrock for its WINCLY podcast. Shamrock discussed his former longtime rival, UFC Hall of Famer Tito Ortiz, fighting Alberto El Patron next month on PPV for Combate Americas. Below are some highlights from

Shamrock on Tito Ortiz: “Tito is a phenomenal fighter. He’s kinda like Tom Brady in that you can’t bet against him no matter how old he gets. He’s taking care of his body and his style warrants him for being able to go for longer periods of time because he doesn’t stand and bang with people. He gets them to the ground and grounds and pounds them and doesn’t do a whole lot of damage to his body. … I think Tito’s gonna be around for a while and I think he’s gonna keep doing really well for himself.”

Shamrock on Ortiz possibly going to Impact Wrestling: “I don’t know because I don’t know what his thoughts are. He’s focusing on this fight and getting this win, but he’s an intelligent man so I’m sure wherever he goes he’s gonna be successful at it.”
