Scott Bessac

UFC and Pancrase vet who competed in MMA from 1994 to 1995. Scott Bessac's career in MMA got off to a rough start. One of the first Lion's Den fighters, he started training with Ken Shamrock in 1991 following a college baseball and football career at California Sate University. His Lion's Den connections brought him to Pancrase where he would start out 0-4 before a three fight win streak (capped by a victory over Takafumi Ito) saw him make his stateside debut with the UFC. He went 1-1 in his UFC career, with a loss in Pancrase sandwiched in between, before retiring from the sport. Post fighting, he attempted to open a new Lion's Den training facility in Lodi, California, but the facility was moved to Reno, Nevada. I've heard rumors that he still coaches at a Lion's Den affiliate, but can't find him listed at any of their gyms.
