Royce Gracie wins UFC 1

BooKooMMA [10:30 PM]:

Everyone should say their fav moment

Leek [10:30 PM]:

This was pretty cool, great work guys.

Chuck Mindenhall [10:30 PM]:

Thanks again guys. Was fun.

Shaun Al-Shatti [10:30 PM]:

@Chuck Mindenhall Nice

ERG913 [10:30 PM]:

Thanks guys, have a good night

NewYorkRic [10:29 PM]:

Bye y’all.

mercydrive [10:29 PM]:

@Chuck Mindenhall There’s always one

Shaun Al-Shatti [10:29 PM]:

It’s been a blast. Thanks to everyone who joined us! We’ll have to do this again.

Chuck Mindenhall [10:29 PM]:

Just thought I’d throw that rain cloud over your head as we jump out of here.

Jiujitsu786 [10:28 PM]:

All ufcs should still cost $19.99! HD for $24.95

Chuck Mindenhall [10:28 PM]:

Yeah, thanks guys. Was fun. You know if you bought every PPV from just 100 to 167, in standard def, you’ve spent $3078.65?

mercydrive [10:28 PM]:

Thanks to all the MMA Fighting guys for doing this, was great fun!

TheAvenger [10:28 PM]:

UFC 37.5!!!

Bryan Tucker [10:28 PM]:

Appreciate all the comments and we’ll have to do this again soon. We’ll keep it open for 2 more minutes to wrap up any conversations.

ChrisPCT [10:28 PM]:

that was awesome, thanks guys

mercydrive [10:27 PM]:

especially considering WWF was running Yokozuna and Lex Luger at the time

Bryan Tucker [10:27 PM]:

Thanks everyone for watching UFC 1 with us again.

rlong05 [10:27 PM]:

@Jiujitsu786 no…why? nothing to prove. Watch Renzo Gracie Legacy dvd. That’s all I need

Jiujitsu786 [10:26 PM]:

Kyra Gracie vs Rhonda Rousey! Now thats a fight!

Chuck Mindenhall [10:26 PM]:

Overall all, fast fights and finishes. Not bad for $19.95 at the time.

ChrisPCT [10:26 PM]:

Jim Brown was awesome, he knew what was up

HeadStomp [10:25 PM]:

Right about now there were a bunch of hicks sayin “I bet I could take that spanish guy”

ChrisPCT [10:25 PM]:

So funny that he was at disney land when Ariel intreviewd him last year

Chuck Mindenhall [10:25 PM]:

“I think he’s going to have a heck of a time at Disneyland.” -Kathy Long

TheAvenger [10:25 PM]:

lol i just looked at the fight times for ufc 5

NewYorkRic [10:25 PM]:


rlong05 [10:25 PM]:

“It’s gracie jiu jitsu all the way, there’s no chance”

Jiujitsu786 [10:25 PM]:

So Renzo wants to fight again in the UFC! Not a good idea!

Shaun Al-Shatti [10:24 PM]:

@ChrisPCT FightMetric says Royce didn’t get hit by one significant strike the entire tournament

NewYorkRic [10:24 PM]:

@ChrisPCT According to FightMetric, no.

mercydrive [10:24 PM]:

I feel much better about Goldy and Rogan now

rlong05 [10:24 PM]:

@Jiujitsu786 yea but they left a lasting legacy…they really don’t need to have a family member in mma

Chuck Mindenhall [10:24 PM]:

In all seriousness, what a big moment. So many fighters you talk to say they got inspired by Gracie and UFC 1.

Leek [10:24 PM]:

“He’s too pretty to get hurt”

Shaun Al-Shatti [10:24 PM]:

“They don’t know what to do on the ground.” <— Understatement of the century, right there

ChrisPCT [10:23 PM]:

Did Royce get hit once?

Chuck Mindenhall [10:23 PM]:

Yeah that airhorn guy needs to be corrected.

Shaun Al-Shatti [10:23 PM]:

Royce Gracie 3-0 on the night. 3 subs. 4:59 total ring time.

Jiujitsu786 [10:23 PM]:

Rener would have been like “Its like fighting fire with water”


#kingshaun – spread the love!

Chuck Mindenhall [10:22 PM]:

Royce has $50,000 on the Big Check.

NewYorkRic [10:22 PM]:

@mercydrive Rener was not there, but Ryron was.

rlong05 [10:22 PM]:

@TheAvenger rener was not allowed but ryron was


I gotta go! Good night all. Was fun chatting :)

Leek [10:22 PM]:

“I found my sport” -Jim Brown

ChrisPCT [10:22 PM]:

I think Ryron was? but not Rener

HeadStomp [10:22 PM]:

Who’s the moron with the air horn?

mercydrive [10:22 PM]:

‘Fighting is not what we thought it was’ – Words to live by

BooKooMMA [10:22 PM]:

What are the OTN bonuses? :)

TheAvenger [10:22 PM]:

was rener gracie there? Haha

Jiujitsu786 [10:21 PM]:

Kron is really the only hope left for the Gracie family in MMA @rlong05

ChrisPCT [10:21 PM]:

Jiu Jitsu !

Shaun Al-Shatti [10:21 PM]:

Royce Gracie def. Gerard Gordeau via submission (rear-naked choke) at 1:44 of round one to become the first UFC tournament champion

mercydrive [10:21 PM]:

Yeah this has been brilliant, thoroughly enjoyed it.

Chuck Mindenhall [10:21 PM]:

Royce held that choke a long, long time. He said it was because Gordeau bit him.

Leek [10:21 PM]:

just heard Royce yell out after getting bit

rlong05 [10:21 PM]:

i like how royce breifly looked for an ezekiel choke

ChrisPCT [10:20 PM]:

do it @chuck!

Shaun Al-Shatti [10:20 PM]:

Using that gi like a champ. Gerard never knew what hit him.

Chuck Mindenhall [10:20 PM]:

@dj c plus I think we should do one for each card from here on in. UFC 2 we’ll celebrate 20 years in March.

ChrisPCT [10:20 PM]:

Kron has that mean streak about him too, I think he will do ok

rlong05 [10:20 PM]:

@Jiujitsu786 cuz everyone knows jiu jitsu defense

Jiujitsu786 [10:20 PM]:

I heard Kron Gracie is going to be making a MMA debut hopefully soon!

Shaun Al-Shatti [10:19 PM]:

Takedown right into mount

NewYorkRic [10:19 PM]:

Gerard was the first guy to look for underhooks all night.

dj c plus [10:19 PM]:

thanks for setting this up, SBN peeps. good stuff.

Chuck Mindenhall [10:19 PM]:

They have abandoned Bill Wallace for pointing out that the mouth is the dirtiest part of the human body.

Jiujitsu786 [10:19 PM]:

Why do all the Gracie’s not do well in the UFC anymore?

mercydrive [10:19 PM]:

Royce vs. Air-horn guy…make it happen

armarchetto [10:18 PM]:

“It’s Gracie Jiu-Jitsu all the way.”

NewYorkRic [10:18 PM]:

@BooKooMMA Accurate.

TheAvenger [10:18 PM]:

He’s going to disneyland WOOOOOOOO

HeadStomp [10:17 PM]:

@Chuck Mindenhall Yep, just double checked. They show him tapping Jenkins out and a few other clips. Also a little of DeLucias post-fight when he says “This is real deal. This isn’t boxing”

TheAvenger [10:17 PM]:

all josh kosheck fights need to have no time limit

Chuck Mindenhall [10:17 PM]:

@Shaun Al-Shatti That’s all I’m saying.

@joedaddy85 [10:17 PM]:

this was pretty cool…

BooKooMMA [10:17 PM]:

Ariel is banned untile he wins a bet agains Ric.

Shaun Al-Shatti [10:17 PM]:

@Chuck Mindenhall Seriously. We need more long, loose pants in our MMA

NewYorkRic [10:16 PM]:

Young stud Rickson Gracie sighting.

Jiujitsu786 [10:16 PM]:

Where is Ariel Helwani?

Chuck Mindenhall [10:15 PM]:

@TheAvenger Don’t know, but what a great pic.

Jiujitsu786 [10:15 PM]:

Helio never aged! Osssss

TheAvenger [10:15 PM]:

royce not letting go? Banned until UFC 2

armarchetto [10:15 PM]:


mercydrive [10:15 PM]:

Come on man, you literally read his stats 5 minutes ago.

Chuck Mindenhall [10:14 PM]:

@HeadStomp Really? Cool. I will check that out.

TheAvenger [10:13 PM]:

is this it?

NewYorkRic [10:13 PM]:

Strangely anti-Rorion, but pro-Helio.

ThisPhillyFan [10:13 PM]:

It’s jarring to see bare knuckles, no?

HeadStomp [10:13 PM]:

There’s some clips of DeLucia-Jenkins at the beginning of UFC 2

mercydrive [10:13 PM]:

All abooooooooooard

Leek [10:13 PM]:

@Shaun Al-Shatti I think it’s on

Chuck Mindenhall [10:12 PM]:

Helio Gracie being recognized in the middle of the Octagon. Some jeers from the Denver crowd.

Shaun Al-Shatti [10:12 PM]:

Boos all around. Denver crowd didn’t come to see no ceremony.

ERG913 [10:12 PM]:

@Chuck Mindenhall Oh ok. I’ve only seen the dozen times DeLucia got liver kicked by Bas Rutten.


‘because the mouth is the dirtiest part of the human body’ lmao

mercydrive [10:12 PM]:

Some sexy graphics right there

Shaun Al-Shatti [10:11 PM]:

@Chuck Mindenhall Looks like it’s lost to history

Chuck Mindenhall [10:10 PM]:

@ERG913 Was just curious. That was the “alternative” bout that went on at UFC 1.

ThisPhillyFan [10:10 PM]:

So now Royce has to turn around after choking out Shamrock to fight Gordeau.

Leek [10:10 PM]:

Ken’s got the kids at the group home looking up to him



ERG913 [10:10 PM]:

@Chuck Mindenhall no, What happened?

Shaun Al-Shatti [10:09 PM]:

Ken classy in defeat

Chuck Mindenhall [10:09 PM]:

Has anybody seen the Jason DeLucia-Trent Jenkins bout?

TheAvenger [10:08 PM]:

@rlong05 lol

rlong05 [10:07 PM]:

@TheAvenger the 1 prelim fight

mercydrive [10:07 PM]:

TAP….April Fools

TheAvenger [10:06 PM]:

Now it’s time to replay all the prelim fights to pass some time.

Chuck Mindenhall [10:06 PM]:

Imagine Dana White in the post-fight interview with that unacknowledged tap from Shamrock.

TheAvenger [10:05 PM]:

ken breathing heavy

rlong05 [10:05 PM]:


rlong05 [10:05 PM]:

i wonder what the odds would have been for this fiht

NewYorkRic [10:05 PM]:

@Chuck Mindenhall Tuli shoots first.

Chuck Mindenhall [10:05 PM]:

I wish we could have seen Tuli-Gracie.

rlong05 [10:04 PM]:

shock the world royce!!!

armarchetto [10:04 PM]:

“What happened?” -Jim Brown. Really think he might have nodded off.

TheAvenger [10:04 PM]:

how did the ref miss that? unacceptable



TheAvenger [10:03 PM]:

who’s the ref, mazzagatti?

mercydrive [10:03 PM]:

Ken sure had some dreamy hair

Leek [10:03 PM]:

Ken’s jacket is sick

BooKooMMA [10:02 PM]:

Cecil Peoples scored that a draw.

TheAvenger [10:02 PM]:

shamrock stuffs the takedown

dj c plus [10:02 PM]:

we’re goin’ off the rails on a Gracie Traaaaain

mercydrive [10:01 PM]:

I’d love to have been a fly on the wall when they pitched the Gracie train

Leek [10:01 PM]:

@TheAvenger not to mention biting Royce’s ear

Chuck Mindenhall [10:01 PM]:

Royce riding the train back to the cage.

HeadStomp [10:00 PM]:

That “classy guy” tried to gouge Yuki Nakai’s eye out a year and a half later

TheAvenger [10:00 PM]:

damn, shamrock’s left eye

Chuck Mindenhall [9:59 PM]:

@mercydrive Good point.

mercydrive [9:59 PM]:


mercydrive [9:59 PM]:

You never see Dolche and Rosier in the same room…

NewYorkRic [9:58 PM]:

Dolce would’ve had him down to 205.

Shaun Al-Shatti [9:58 PM]:

@Chuck Mindenhall Never doubt that Rosier Diet.

Leek [9:58 PM]:

45lbs in three weeks, take that Mike Dolce!!

Chuck Mindenhall [9:58 PM]:

“I went in there, I trained three weeks for this. I lost 45 pounds.” -Rosier

TheAvenger [9:58 PM]:

gracie time

HeadStomp [9:58 PM]:

Sad that Kevin Rosier was apparently homeless not too long ago

ChrisPCT [9:56 PM]:

as much as we say royce was way better then everyone, gordeau was clearly on another level too

Chuck Mindenhall [9:56 PM]:

Gordeau had some poise. He just watched his wounded prey squirm for a bit before that stomp.

TheAvenger [9:56 PM]:

lol , jim Brown :do u think its’ going to be short? No I don’t think so..

HeadStomp [9:56 PM]:

“Watch now boom theres the punch”

Shaun Al-Shatti [9:56 PM]:

Elbows and stomps. Gerard doesn’t mess around.

mercydrive [9:55 PM]:

I call it the ‘Wounded Moose’

ChrisPCT [9:55 PM]:

man rozier is getting picked apart

Shaun Al-Shatti [9:55 PM]:

@NewYorkRic Exactly what I was thinking

HeadStomp [9:55 PM]:

Rosier moves with such grace

Chuck Mindenhall [9:54 PM]:

Rosier in some early trouble here….

NewYorkRic [9:54 PM]:

Rosier is playing the game.

armarchetto [9:54 PM]:

Bill Wallace is doing everything in his power to make Jim Brown apart of the broadcast by relating something to football.


Imagine Roy Nelson competing at UFC 1…. not good for his health lol

ERG913 [9:53 PM]:


BooKooMMA [9:53 PM]:

The cage is so cuddly, that Roy Nelson would tickle it all night long.

TheAvenger [9:53 PM]:

jim brown is on point so far

Chuck Mindenhall [9:53 PM]:

“He’s a heck of a man, I’ll tell you what.” – Kathy Long on Gerard Gordeau

HeadStomp [9:53 PM]:

Keep in mind Gordeau still has pieces of Tuli’s teeth stuck in his foot at this point

mercydrive [9:53 PM]:

@NewYorkRic was about to say…Patrick was showing that bike who was boss

NewYorkRic [9:52 PM]:

@mercydrive *Art and Patrick

kalamity113 [9:52 PM]:

who thought that teila tuli would just run through everybody?

armarchetto [9:51 PM]:

She really broke down their ‘nice’ handshake?

NewYorkRic [9:51 PM]:

@mercydrive Art and Kevin were both pushing it to the limit on bikes.

TheAvenger [9:51 PM]:

and its over

TheAvenger [9:51 PM]:

stop covering up and get up

ChrisPCT [9:51 PM]:

a 4 man commentary team, howd they thnk that would work lol

NewYorkRic [9:51 PM]:

@Chuck Mindenhall Not the first time we’ve caught Chuck talking to himself.

Chuck Mindenhall [9:51 PM]:

Commentators not real confident in Rosier’s chances.


@ChuckMinedenhall fail.

mercydrive [9:50 PM]:

You always pick the mine riding the gym bike in his pre-match promo

ERG913 [9:50 PM]:

@dustman With or without Jim Cornette in his corner?

Leek [9:50 PM]:

I get the feeling Kathy Long wanted to slap Bill Wallace’s face

Chuck Mindenhall [9:50 PM]:

@Chuck Mindenhall Shamrock.


@NewYorkRic because you just know it….. they cant deal with that jiu jitsu

NewYorkRic [9:50 PM]:

@BooKooMMA Smart man.

BooKooMMA [9:49 PM]:

depends on the odds :p

TheAvenger [9:49 PM]:

probably shamrock

ChrisPCT [9:49 PM]:

I think Ken has to make the most sense



dustman [9:49 PM]:

I always thought the man they call Vader could have beat them all, and won the tournament

NewYorkRic [9:49 PM]:

Real question: You line these guys up pre-UFC 1; going in blind, who do you bet on?

Chuck Mindenhall [9:48 PM]:

Bracketology: Gordeau versus Rosier, and Gracie versus Shamrock.


i train ufc bro…

ERG913 [9:48 PM]:

@Dave Meltzer Only a little bit though

Chuck Mindenhall [9:47 PM]:

@Dave Meltzer If the opposite were true, we might not be celebrating 20 years right now.

Dave Meltzer [9:47 PM]:

They noted Ken was breathing after the fight. Thank God.

Dave Meltzer [9:47 PM]:

Prophetic words 20 years later. Weight dosen’t make a difference, when everyone in the world cuts weight today to have a slight advantage.

ERG913 [9:47 PM]:

ankle lock = Beating into living death

armarchetto [9:46 PM]:

Ken Shamrock’s interview are to the equivalent of Greg Popovich talk to Craig Sager.

ChrisPCT [9:46 PM]:

cut on head = eye gouges? makes sense

Leek [9:46 PM]:

@TheAvenger Smith was the hometown favorite

rlong05 [9:46 PM]:

@NewYorkRic haha…this is true

Dave Meltzer [9:46 PM]:

I had seen the first Pancrase show with Shamrock vs. Funaki.

jamesrobertwade [9:45 PM]:

no one wants to lose to a footlock

Dave Meltzer [9:45 PM]:

Fans chanting bullshit, because the guy tapped to a submission.

NewYorkRic [9:45 PM]:

@rlong05 You don’t get to 250-0 with a weak guard.

Chuck Mindenhall [9:45 PM]:

Patrick Smith wants two out of three.

ChrisPCT [9:45 PM]:

@Dave Meltzer had you watched Shamrock’s fights previous to ufc 1?

rlong05 [9:45 PM]:

@Dave Meltzer he needs to be cut

Shaun Al-Shatti [9:45 PM]:

A man does not simply lose his 250-0 record without causing a ruckus

TheAvenger [9:45 PM]:

crowd chanting bs?

@joedaddy85 [9:44 PM]:

anyone know if there were odds on this tournament?

Dave Meltzer [9:44 PM]:

Some bad sportsmanship.

rlong05 [9:44 PM]:

@NewYorkRic pat smith has a very technical closed guard…safe stage 1 of the guard

dj c plus [9:44 PM]:

it’s weird seeing Shamrock without a completely busted nose

kalamity113 [9:44 PM]:

did you guys enjoy ken in wwf/e more or in ufc?


Shamrock wanted to go some more!

Dave Meltzer [9:43 PM]:

Ken wasn’t used to the heel hooks without the other guy without pro wrestling boots, but still won.

TheAvenger [9:43 PM]:

250-1, omg what a monumental upset


@newyorkric Seem’s reasonable… :) cant wait!

NewYorkRic [9:43 PM]:

It looked like Pat almost went to rubber guard.


This man is a shadow-shi-shooto fight. with a record of 17,842-0. FIGHTING… out of heaven………

NewYorkRic [9:42 PM]:

@JOEUFCFAN I’m thinking 145.

Shaun Al-Shatti [9:42 PM]:

Shamrock was already 3-0 in Pancrase at this point. All subs

ChrisPCT [9:42 PM]:

swimming trunks

rlong05 [9:42 PM]:

Shamrock was the most experienced in this type of a fight 3-0 in pancrase

Chuck Mindenhall [9:42 PM]:

@Leek Hard trick to turn, being the most powerfullest.

Chuck Mindenhall [9:41 PM]:

Fact: People from Denver prone to exaggerration (250-0).


@NEWYORKRIC bantamweight?

Leek [9:41 PM]:

Most powerfullest, most craziest out of all the groups



Shaun Al-Shatti [9:41 PM]:

Man, they don’t make records like they used to

Chuck Mindenhall [9:41 PM]:

Crowd loving themselves some of Denver’s own Patrick Smith…

Dave Meltzer [9:41 PM]:

Wow, in 1993 cut abs were called muscles in the stomach.

kalamity113 [9:41 PM]:

i gotta question for all to answer if they choose

NewYorkRic [9:41 PM]:

@JOEUFCFAN We’ve contacted Art Jimmerson.

jamesrobertwade [9:40 PM]:

there’s more charm about the seg cards

Chuck Mindenhall [9:40 PM]:

Ken Wayne Shamrock 24-3-2.

kalamity113 [9:40 PM]:


ChrisPCT [9:40 PM]:

Pat Smith stole John Morgan’s hair

@joedaddy85 [9:40 PM]:

google watch ufc 1 online..watching on vimeo

Dave Meltzer [9:40 PM]:


TheAvenger [9:40 PM]:

250-0? What???

Punk Hazard [9:40 PM]:

Oh okay.. haha so this is just like a chat thing about it.. SWEET! WHERE’S LUKE?




I cant wait for NYR’s mma debut!

Shaun Al-Shatti [9:40 PM]:

@kalamity113 Just in time for Mr. Shamrock


hey kalamity

TheAvenger [9:40 PM]:

lol wayne?

ERG913 [9:39 PM]:

@dj c plus lol It was only missing the line “I like having fun.”


everybody is watching it on their own source

kalamity113 [9:39 PM]:

whats up fellas

Chuck Mindenhall [9:39 PM]:

Pat Smith had a tougher battle with that towel on the way in.

armarchetto [9:39 PM]:

Who had the best walkout music?

Shaun Al-Shatti [9:39 PM]:

@NewYorkRic Whoa, nice. Only 47 sig. strikes the entire event.


no punk

dj c plus [9:39 PM]:

that interview w shamrock looked like a video dating profile

Punk Hazard [9:38 PM]:

Is UFC 1 being streamed on here? I’m at work!!! I think it’s blocked here!!!


hopefully everyone here has seen UFC 1 before :P

ChrisPCT [9:38 PM]:

@Dave who did you think was going to win UFC 1?

TheAvenger [9:38 PM]:

pat smith gets the towel stuck on his face

rasmer [9:38 PM]:

@NewYorkRic spoiler alert :P

armarchetto [9:38 PM]:

@Ric this is beautiful

NewYorkRic [9:38 PM]:


Wisetoad [9:37 PM]:

“very streetwise”

NewYorkRic [9:37 PM]:

@armarchetto Speaking of that, if anybody wants a peak at the FightMetric stats for this one:

mercydrive [9:37 PM]:

Pat’s neck has necks

jamesrobertwade [9:37 PM]:

i think it was more exhaustion than being mounted

Leek [9:37 PM]:

Even Goins was disapointed



Chuck Mindenhall [9:36 PM]:

Pat Smith and Ken Shamrock. “The two strong boys”

TheAvenger [9:36 PM]:

here comes shamrock!!!!

rlong05 [9:36 PM]:

@ChrisPCT geez people need to learn a simple trap and roll escape

BooKooMMA [9:36 PM]:

Bobb Sapp taps pre-mount

armarchetto [9:36 PM]:

Using stats from Police Department Studies. Take that Fightmetric

mercydrive [9:36 PM]:

31 minutes*

Dave Meltzer [9:36 PM]:

Didn’t Remco Parduel against Marco Ruas tap to mount. I was at that one, God were the people at SEG furious at that.

mercydrive [9:36 PM]:

4 fights in and its 31, imagine how many !!!!!! Dana would have used on Twitter so far

CallumLeslieMMA [9:36 PM]:

Well gentleman, this has been fun. But it’s 2:30am here in God’s country, and I am going to be in big trouble if I don’t let my other half sleep. This is a great idea, we should do this again! Thanks again.

ERG913 [9:36 PM]:

@rlong05 Nah, Gary Goodridge vs Don Frye

Chuck Mindenhall [9:36 PM]:

@rlong05 Was wondering about that…

Shaun Al-Shatti [9:35 PM]:

Jim Brown is the best

ChrisPCT [9:35 PM]:

I saw someone at a local mma even tap to being mounted

rlong05 [9:35 PM]:

is that the only time someone tapped due to mount

ChrisPCT [9:35 PM]:

to bad he wasn’t wearing kickboxing shoes

Bryan Tucker [9:35 PM]:

Royce with the submission win to move on.. didn’t see that one coming


You’ll probably see dana white throwing the towel after 2 minutes if he’s at a fitch fight again!

ChrisPCT [9:35 PM]:

apparently you can’t kick if you’re wearing boxing shoes lol

Chuck Mindenhall [9:35 PM]:

Towel comes flying in. That was the the entirety of Jimmerson’s MMA career.

jamesrobertwade [9:34 PM]:

emmanuel yarborough got a submission by smother because he lay on some japanese guy

mercydrive [9:34 PM]:

I think this was more of a submission (confusion) tap


Lol erg…

ChrisPCT [9:34 PM]:


ChrisPCT [9:34 PM]:

Pissed was probably pissed he didn’t get to finish

TheAvenger [9:34 PM]:

he just gave up wow

ERG913 [9:34 PM]:

@JOEUFCFAN Junior Dos Santos diagrees.

jamesrobertwade [9:34 PM]:

they wanted pat smith back to fight frank mir at ufc 45 or so

rlong05 [9:34 PM]:

@Chuck Mindenhall haha he was the first officially

CallumLeslieMMA [9:34 PM]:

second worst submission reason ever. Joe Son once lost a fight by Submission (terror), according to Sherdog..


I wanna see more Towel throwing in MMA

ERG913 [9:33 PM]:

I love the people chanting “fight” when Gracie got mount.

CallumLeslieMMA [9:33 PM]:

Taps to "position:

Chuck Mindenhall [9:33 PM]:

Jimmerson wearing Nike. Long before Jon Jones (and less endorsed).

rlong05 [9:33 PM]:

thats so awesome tap due to mount

jamesrobertwade [9:33 PM]:

i think paul herrera was 200-0 before losing in 8 seconds to don frye at ufc8

JordyBonesJones [9:33 PM]:


@joedaddy85 [9:33 PM]:

pat smith is the greatest fighter in ufc history

CallumLeslieMMA [9:33 PM]:

Royce Gracie is a very dirty fighter. Headbutts, eyepokes, not letting go of the submission…

TheAvenger [9:33 PM]:

huh it’s over

ChrisPCT [9:33 PM]:

man rampage is upset with Royce’s knee kick

ChrisPCT [9:32 PM]:

they said 180


Chuck is 250-0 aswell…. no biggie

Leek [9:32 PM]:

So how much does Gracie weigh 175, 178, or 180?

rlong05 [9:32 PM]:

@Chuck Mindenhall he was the little guy…the other brothers got to fight more often

Shaun Al-Shatti [9:32 PM]:

If only the one glove technique would’ve been given time to prosper. Could’ve been something magical

Chuck Mindenhall [9:32 PM]:

@jamesrobertwade Almost unheard of today.

TheAvenger [9:31 PM]:

there’s the takedown

jamesrobertwade [9:31 PM]:

wait for pat smith, he’s an “astonishing 250-0”



NewYorkRic [9:31 PM]:

@JOEUFCFAN I am legally not allowed to grow that “moustache” again. Or be within 100 feet of a school.

CallumLeslieMMA [9:31 PM]:

Ken Anderson stole the gimmick from Rich Goins.
