Ken Shamrock, real name Kenneth Wayne Kilpatrick, was probably one of the most famous faces in mixed martial arts (MMA). He was a star in the UFC, and he's in the UFC hall of fame. In his time, he headlined 15 events, making a lot of money with PPV sales. At one point he was called The World's Most Dangerous Man. This is something that stuck to Ken Shamrock as his defining nickname. This moniker served him well in both his MMA career and later in his professional wrestling career. He was a big WWF (WWE now) draw and even fought in TNA wrestling.
Just to give you an idea of how big he was in the UFC, in 2002 when the UFC was in a real mess, they were doing around 45,000 PPV buys on average. The first Tito Ortiz vs. Shamrock fight sold 150,000 PPV buys with a million dollar gate (first time for UFC). In 2006, after months of trash talking, Ken Shamrock faced Ortiz again. This was a record fight for Ken, with 775,000 PPV buys, that's a huge sale, over $30,000,000 USD! In a sense, you can safely say Ken Shamrock was the father of the UFC PPV business model.
However, like with many famous athletes, there was always speculation about him doping. The use of steroids and HGH was a lot more widespread in all sports at that point. Many critics claimed Ken Shamrock was using both steroids and HGH, but there was no proof. Until he got lucky (pun intended), after his War Gods fight in 2009, he tested positive for steroids. Specifically, Norandrosterone, Noretiocholanolone and Stanozolol. In simple terms, he was probably using a low amount of deca durabolin along with winstrol. So, let's review his cycle.
Note: We'll add a modern twist to it, to make it more valid for the world today.
