New Shamrock versus Gracie:
It shocked the thousands in attendance at Rumble on the Rock this weekend. There they were again. A Gracie and a Shamrock talking smack in the middle of a cage. It was a scene out of 1993, when older brother Ken talked with Cesar's cousin, Royce about who was better.
This weekend the Rumble on the Rock flew in Cesar Gracie and Frank Shamrock to announce their upcoming fight in August. There was plenty of trash talk between the two fighters.
In one exchange Ceasar Gracie said "We all know what happens when a Gracie faces a Shamrock, Gracie's ALWAYS win"...which drew ah's and oh's from the crowd. Shamrock then followed up with "You sure like to talk boy for someone who has never fought in the cage before..."
Those were just a couple of exchanges between the two fighters. This fight was supposed to happen before. World Extreme Cagefighting had the two verbally committed and Gracie signed the contract. For whatever reason Shamrock didn't end up signing to fight. Now this fight is being talked about, possibly on pay per view in the first weekend of August. Gracie still is waiting.
Cesar told MMAWeekly "I flew to Hawaii to sign a contract. I did my end of the bargain, but I still don't think Frank has signed. I will believe it when I see it."
