My name is Frank Shamrock and I was born Frank Alicio Juarez III on December 8, 1972 at the UCLA Medical Center in Westwood, California. A sensitive child brought up in a broken family, my early life was filled with violence, poverty and trouble. I became a ward of the State of California at the age of 12 and a prison inmate at 18. By the age of 22, mine was a world story.
As a fighter in a sport that started bare knuckled with limited rules and no weights classes, I earned the nickname, The Legend. A pioneer of modern combat sports I became the world's first UFC Middleweight Champion, the first Mexican American MMA Champion and left the UFC as the four-time undefeated champion following an epic four round battle with the sports’ bad boy, Tito Ortiz.
