Ken Shamrock Accuser

I'm OBVIOUSLY a Girl

EXCLUSIVE

0824_Ken-Shamrock-Accuser_tmz_wm
Here she is ... the woman Ken Sharmrock roughed up in a California mall because ... for some crazy reason ... he thought she was a dude.

Her name is Melinda Garcia ... she weighs 120 pounds ... and tells TMZ there's NO WAY Shamrock could've confused her for a man. In fact, she claims Ken is straight up LYING about the fight.

We broke the story ... Shamrock claims he was breaking up a girl-on-girl brawl in a mall in Modesto, CA earlier this month when someone jumped on his back. Shamrock claims he believed the person was a man, so he took "him" down. Turns out ... "he" was actually a "she."

But Garcia claims it's all BS ... claiming Shamrock didn't actually break up the original fight, but rather screamed at her to do it ... which she did.

Garcia claims Shamrock began to yell at her for not stopping the fight sooner ... and then snapped and PUNCHED her in the face.

Garcia says her mom ran over to intervene ... and Shamrock punched her too.

Soon after the alleged girl-punching, security and police arrived to the scene ... and only then, Garcia says, Shamrock backed off.

TMZ has text messages from Garcia to her sister (who goes by "Hoochie" in the phone) just moments after the fight in which she describes the incident.

Garcia tells TMZ ... if the police don't press charges, she plans to file a lawsuit.

A rep for Shamrock tells TMZ ... Ken doesn't believe he did anything wrong ... and only acted in self-defense.

LOL    

So instead of just splitting them up, he decided to hit the guy... two wrongs don't make a right, and the fact that he was trying to defend the girls is just an excuse because he still could've protected the girl by just prying them apart, he didn't have to jump in and act like a big tough guy by also hitting the guy and acting like he's doing the right thing by hitting the guy (Who was actually a girl)

Not only did he beat + insult the girl, but now people are saying he was just trying to do the right thing? BULL ****!!!
HE WAS LOOKING FOR AN EXCUSE TO FIGHT SOMEONE AND LOOK COOL/GOOD AND IT ENDED UP BEING A GIRL THE WHOLE TIME..
Hope he's learned his lesson

Ken Shamrock is a trained fighter and fought at UFC 1, bare knuckle. She claims he punched her and that's all that happened. Remember, Ken fought at 205 pounds. No way he hit her and that's what happened. She would be ****ed up hardcore, broken orbital socket, detached retina, and at least a black eye.

Um yeah, she's a dude.

This is the problem I have with lesbians who want to look masculine. It's your life, do what you want, but don't be mad if people think you're a man.

Ken's a beast, the dude made a living fighting +200lbs guys. If he hit her three times like she said s(he) would look a mess. I don't buy her story for a minute.

What A Man Thinks    

He didn't do anything wrong! That bitch should have kept her hands to her ****ing self! It doesn't matter if she is male or female, you don't attack someone who is trying to break up a fight! This dumb feminist **** got what she desires! YEAH I'm throwing it out there! She's a feminist! Obviously she believes she did nothing wrong. And thinks women can hit men. On top of that, most feminists are ugly ass butch looking women. JACKPOT BITCH!

If I were Ken I'd be worried less about the fact that she looks male and more about the fact that she looks like a 12 year old boy. And her story seems a little bit far fetched to me. I'm not even a Ken Shamrock fan but come on, he hit two women for no reason in public, I know athletes can be a bit stupid sometimes but that's a little ridiculous to me. I think I'll believe the original story instead of the one this woman is using to get the spotlight.

The issue here isn't whether it's a male or a female. That is irrelevant. It's that this person jumped on someone's back and started to assault them and got what was coming to them.
