Frank Shamrock was the first ever champion of the UFC Middleweight division and retired as the four-time defending undefeated champion.
Shamrock was the No. 1 ranked pound for pound UFC fighter in the world during his reign as the UFC Middleweight Champion. He was named “Fighter of the Decade” for the 1990s by the Wrestling Observer, “Best Full Contact Fighter” by Black Belt magazine (1998), and three time “Fighter of the Year” by Full Contact Fighter Magazine. After retirement, Shamrock became an outspoken cannabis advocate and hosted an educational cannabis talk-show called BakeoutTV. Shamrock largely credits cannabis for allowing him to fight for as long as he did, “I don’t think I could have completed my career without cannabis” says Shamrock.
