I was at submissionfighting.com before here always with my Spidermoore username.

"Skimmay and Elvis - Tiny Dancer" - Classic

I can't remember which things occurred where but I do recall

- The Mustache Gang (or whatever they called themselves). I was jealous because my mustache is pathetic whenever I try to grow one.

- Todd Atkins and his unpaid $500 bet.

- T0ki and his wingman story (I think that is from MMA.TV days)

I think all of those are from the MMA.tv days... I also think I may have some unused Toki points sitting around if I think about it.

Sounds like a plan.The only news magazine I have ever bought was Full Contact Fighter & I had no intentions of saving them.I do have the old school FCF shirt.

I was mat_rat from 98 until about 2001.

I recently trained while out of town on business and the first thing I noticed was the guy had his copy of the fighters notebook. I knew he was good people.

Kirik -  Anyone remember the UG's forerunner - The Art of NHB Fighting on aol? A partnership with FightingTalk.com get things moving.


It was 'The sport of NHB fighting'. It started on AOL, then moved to one of Gabe's fwager directories on javanet, then hooked up with Mike's FightingTalk.com to create the UG on Submissionfighting.com.

I first found this forum in sept 99, when it was dominated by MTripp & Quincy Rice judo posts, Liuke Beston vs Michigan Judo, Machine May, remember Adam from Conns posts about virginity & penis size that were 100+ posts on a weekly basis (RIP brother), remember when Sakuraba made his run against the Gracies it was nonstop discussion about that and his highlight vid with U2 song, also the hype/posts before the Jens Pulver vs BJ Penn fight was epic, this forum was about 60/40 in favor of Jens but a lot of heated discussions on that fight on this forum way back

This is a cool thread.

Hey Winston, you got a copy of that Newsletter?? I don't even remember it, but a few people on here have asked me about it. I used to do the New Full Contact and later launched the ADCC site. After several people mentioning the Newsletter I googled it and finally found a PDF pic of an ad for the Newsletter in Blackbelt(??) magazine. The address for it was Duluth, GA. The same town I was living in at the time! Then I understood why people assumed it was me. Now that you're raving about the content I'd love to see one. You can reach me at calcooper4@comcast.net . I never did any news in print outside of some magazine
columns.

BTW, I still have many of The New Full Contact files. I've thought about re-posting some retro news someday.

<:(((>< - Ginger! Thats one I haven't heard in a while.

What about Lord Rothermore and Jony?

I still have my SFUK shirt.

 I have about 20 SFUK shirts in a bag in my basement. Never worn.

I have others that I still wear regularly, I love the "dynamic blow job" as it was renamed by the SWS.

late 96/early 97 for me, Gokorfan. Those times were magical, clammoring to the site to hear the latest results since everything was happening abroad or on a reservation somewhere. Jeremy Horn was an up and comer then, fighting nearly every damned weekend. Those are the years we kept the sport alive. It was truly underground and we loved that about it.

yep, but do you remember that feeling, the excitement. Going crazy for the smallest tidbit of anything MMA, etc. The updates were so few and far between that it just seemed like christmas morning to log in and see results, or hear about who's talking shit about who. And the persona's of the forum members back in the day, it was a crazy thing from the major forum rockstars to the bit players, and everthing in between.
