TMZ recently picked up on an incident involving UFC Hall of Famer and former professional wrestler Ken Shamrock. The following is from TMZ.com:

"Shamrock — whose nickname is "The World's Most Dangerous Man" — was hangin' out at a mall in Modesto, CA last month when he saw two women fighting each other in front of the Coach store … surrounded by a group of lookie loos filming the whole thing.

We're told Shamrock dove into the scrap and tried to pry the women apart … when one of the bystanders, a HEAVYSET bystander, jumped on his back and tried to rip Ken out of the pile.

Shamrock's rep tells TMZ … he threw the person off of his back and followed up with a move that knocked the attacker to the ground.

After the person was incapacitated, the crowd shouted at Ken, "You just hit a girl." Ken took a closer look and realized the attacker was in fact a female .. so he immediately backed off."

Shamrock is not expected to face charges, as officials believe he was "acting in self-defense."
