Former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) and WWE veteran Ken Shamrock has had some ups and downs in his career, but his legacy in the fields of both mixed martial arts (MMA) and professional wrestling is undeniable.

While Ken is known for some weird, amazing behavior when his temper flares, TMZ has a report today that takes the cake. Apparently, Shamrock had a scuffle with a woman while he was trying to break up a fight at a mall. The strange part is that he happened to think the woman was a man.

Here is the report:

... 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] threw the person off of his back and followed up with a move that knocked the attacker to the ground.

It was at this point someone in the crowd informed Shamrock of his attacker's gender. At this point, he backed off.

The story continues:

An officer arrived to the scene and took a battery report against Shamrock, noting the only injury was a slight abrasion to the woman's knee. The report was sent to the District Attorney's Office.

But law enforcement sources tell TMZ ... Shamrock probably won't be prosecuted because officials don't feel the woman he knocked to the ground is a "victim." In fact, they believe Ken was acting in self-defense.

Any guesses on who the mysterious burly attacker may have been?

Regardless, this seems like just another chapter in "The World's Most Dangerous Man's" book of crazy moments.

Any other Cagesiders recall some strange moments from the unpredictable "World's Most Dangerous Man?"
