From 12 years of age, Frank lived in various foster homes and had troubles with law enforcement. Eventually, he lived with Bob Shamrock, who was known to take in troubled boys including Ken Shamrock. Eventually, when he turned 21, he was officially adopted.

In 1994, Ken started training Frank in submission fighting, and he would join his foster brother in various fights in the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC). He joined the Lion’s Den training school and would go on and make his debut as part of the Pancrase organization in Japan. He made his first appearance at the King of Pancrase Tournament and would defeat the highly favored Bas Rutten in a close victory. He went on to face Manabu Yamada, but was defeated via submission during the first round. In the following year, he would win against Katsuomi Inagaki but would then face his trainer Masakatsu Funaki which led to a defeat. He bounced back with a victory against Minoru Suzuki, and then fought Allan Goes in a controversial battle which led to a draw, despite Allan being penalized. Shamrock would later face Funaki in a rematch and would win via a toehold submission. He believed, however, that Funaki allowed himself to lose to help elevate Frank’s status. He would then fight for the King of Pancrase interim championship against Minoru Suzuki, winning the belt via a kneebar. He would have several more fights with Pancrase, losing his third fight against Bas Rutten and defeating Manabu Yamada.

After losing to John Lober in Hawaii’s Superbrawl, Frank decided to solely focus on a career in mixed martial arts. He fought Enson Inoue in a number one contender match for the newly created UFC Middleweight Championship, and knocked Inoue out in what Shamrock called the toughest fight of his career. He would go on to face the undefeated Kevin Jackson for the UFC Middleweight Championship, and despite being the underdog, defeated Jackson with an armbar just 16 seconds into the first round. His first title defense would be against Igor Zinoviev in UFC 16, which he won by using a hard slam that knocked Igor unconscious. He then defended the belt against Jeremby Horn at UFC 17, winning via kneebar. In 1999, he would defend the title against Tito Ortiz at UFC 22, in what would be considered one of the greatest fights in the UFC. He forced Ortiz to tap out and the win solidified Shamrock as the greatest UFC champion in the company during that time. He would then relinquish his title and retire from the UFC.

After a brief retirement, Shamrock would return and fight numerous big names including Elvis Sinosic, Cesar Gracie, and Renzo Gracie. He then undertook guest commentary, and also opened his own school called Shamrock Martial Arts Academy, which teaches submission wrestling and kickboxing. His next fight would be against Phil Baroni, getting a win which made him the Strikeforce Middleweight Champion. He would lose against Cung Le and Nick Diaz before announcing his retirement in June 2010.

For his personal life, it is known that Frank is married to Amy and they have a daughter. He also has a son from a previous marriage. Frank and Ken have been known to be estranged for many years, but they eventually reconciled as seen in the documentary “Bound by Blood”. Their father would pass away in 2010 due to diabetes.
