Igor Zinoviev. First guy I ever saw beat a major BJJ BB in an MMA fight. Lived in Brooklyn. Wasn't that big. Was a nice guy.

Hmm.. I'd say Gomi and BJ Penn (although they are both still relevant today, old school nonetheless)

Bev Francis is the template of the modern ufc-brand mma player. Much is owed to this pioneer imo.
