Ex- MMA fighter, and now Strikeforce commentator, Frank Shamrock was recently called a “fake, and a liar” by UFC president, Dana White during an interview with Ariel Helwani. The comments were made in regard to Shamrock proclaiming that he would help legalize the sport in New York with White. Shamrock has since responded to the insults by email to Helwani. Here is what Frank said:
“Wow and false, is all that I can say about Dana’s comments that I am a two-faced liar and further, what a bully and terrible example of combat sports meets corporate America,” Shamrock wrote.
Shamrock explained that he visited White essentially to make peace.
“We parted with nothing more than a clear understanding of our different views and brands,” said Shamrock, who recently retired and is in the process of moving to New York with plans to help lobby for MMA sanctioning.
“Dana’s recent comments on AOL are ridiculous and insulting and I am sad to see them associated with our sport,” he continued. “We will never be a true sport, or art for that matter, until we are free to speak our hearts and minds. I was being genuinely honest about my beliefs and dreams and did not attack, insult, curse or become angry with him in any way. And yet in return, I was attacked, ridiculed and bullied, and finally, my character questioned publically.”
