Pardoe pressing forward for a takedown, eating a low kick from Shamrock.

The fight was for the first-ever WEC light-heavyweight title and Frank Shamrock vacated it shortly afterwards to fight for Strikeforce. The fight, in 2003, was Shamrock's first since 1999. Bryan Pardoe had a signifigant height advantage.

The FightEdit

The first round began and they touched gloves. They circled. Shamrock landed a hard leg kick and Pardoe landed a right hand and stuffed a takedown turtling Shamrock up. Pardoe dumped Shamrock into half-guard against the cage. Shamrock regained guard after a moment. Not much happened. Shamrock locked up something and it was tight, an armbar and he had it and Pardoe tapped. It was all over. The crowd cheered. They hugged.
