Newly announced matches include PRIDE mainstay Kazushi Sakuraba taking on veteran mixed martial artist Ken Shamrock...
Sakuraba returns to action for the first time since his savage beating at the hands of Ricardo Arona in the recently concluded PRIDE Middleweight Grand Prix. Though there was talk of retirement for the 37-year-old Sakuraba, it's clear he never seriously considered leaving the fight game. The same could be said for Shamrock, 41, a veteran of MMA since before the sport was introduced to the U.S. in 1993. His last appearance in the ring was short, as current UFC middleweight champion Rich Franklin stopped him with strikes last April.
