Shamrock (28-15-2) has announced his next move in combat sports: a bareknuckle boxing match.

An announcement was made today on Shamrock’s official website, stating “The World’s Most Dangerous Man” will face “bareknuckle legend James Quinn” in an April 2015 bout to be held in the U.K.

No other details were released, but the statement contends the 50-year-old UFC pioneer is fight ready.

“Shamrock is in great health and feels invigorated by this opportunity to continue to compete and to continue giving back to his fans,” the statement read. “Shamrock is going back to his roots as a fighter. Knowing his body well, Shamrock knows that his decision to re-enter the ring for the love of this sport is a sound decision.

“Shamrock adamantly believes that age should never be a restriction to any athlete. People can do amazing feats past their prime, if it’s a priority to them.”

One of the UFC’s first superstars, Shamrock actually began his MMA career prior to UFC 1, competing three times under the Pancrase banner. His MMA career stretched for more than 17 years, with his final appearance taking place in a November 2010 bout under the King of the Cage banner.

While he’s spent the past four years on the sidelines, Shamrock’s team insists there are still great moments to come.

“With all his accomplishments in fighting, Shamrock is not done,” the statement reads. “Fighting is in his blood, and he still has the fire to do what he has always been passionate about.”

Ken is gonna get slaughtered.

He's been KOed 3 times by Tito Ortiz and lost his last fight in 2 minutes to a guy who was 9-16.

I bet it ends in less than 30 seconds.

Well guy hes fighting is basically a street fighter hes not a boxer and hes pretty old as well.

This fight does absolutely nothing for shamrock.....if he loses its bad,if he wins so what?

Wish metamoris would just book him vs dan severn or something or royce gracie.

Who in his management team thought a sanctioned street fight was the right direction for a 50 year old man?

If anyone's seen the movie Knuckle where Ken's opponent is the main star then you'll realize that this man does this sort of thing for a living and is pretty darn good while Shamrock's chin is terrible and he wont be able to use wrestling in this fight.
