In January of 1997 Frank Shamrock was coming off consecutive Pancrase losses to Yuki Mondo and Kiuna Kunioku. His MMA record at this time is 11-6-1. He is facing John Lober, a tough MMA vet, at SuperBrawl 3. Lober was 2-0-1 , with the draw being a great fight vs Igor Zinoviev.

Some morons will try and claim this is Frank Shamrocks first pro MMA fight, in reality it is his first MAM fight in america, away from Pancrase. Only watch this if you want to watch a good 30 minute grudge match.









Know after i hope all of you watched that fight, in which Lober pretty much controlled Frank Shamrock, isnt it funny to know that after this fight Frakn Shamrock was 11-7-1. He would not fight for 8 months until September of 1997. Frank would not lose another fight until 2007. Going 11-0-1 during this time with wins over Tsuyoshi Kosaka (inventor of the T-Guard) , Enson Inoue, Igor Zinoviev, Kevin Jackson, Bryan Pardoe, Tito Ortiz, Elvis Sinosic, and Cesar Gracie. And oh yeah.

John Lober, the two met in a great grudge match rematch with Franks title on the line. In 1998 the two met in a good rematch.

Lober on the other hand, was 3-0-1 after beating Frank, and seemed to have all the potential in the world, unfortunately it went unfulfilled. After beating Frank he turned around and lost to Kevin Jackson and Kuima Kunioki. Drawed with Osami Shibuya, Ryushi Yanagasiwa then broke Lobers ankle in 50 seconds, Minori Suzuki beat him, and then Joe Pardo beat him.

So basically Lober went 0-4-1 after beating Frank, while Frank went on one of the sports greatest runs ever. Lober met Frank after the Pardo fight and has a career 5-9-4 record.
