Rest in Peace Bob Shamrock

Bob Shamrock, adoptive father to Ken and Frank Shamrock, passed away today at 68 due to complications from diabetes. Early followers of the sport know his story: the patriarch of a home for wayward children, Bob took in rough kids and gave them some much-needed guidance, with future UFC stars Ken and Frank his most famous products. Though I never met him, he was by all accounts a very nice, very compassionate guy. He will be missed.
