http://www.fullmount.co.uk/index.php/mma-news/1-latest-news/739-art-one-glove-jimmerson-talks-james-toney-ufc-1

The UFC's first boxer talks to fullmount.co.uk about his experiences at UFC 1, being offered a share of the UFC and James Toney vs Randy Couture. Bet he wishes he'd taken the shares in the company rather than the $20k now!

He needs to get that glove in a glass case, he could sell it for a small fortune!

he seems to have a bit of regret over how he performed, I wonder if he could have a comeback fight? I guess he could on some smaller cards, Mercer did okay afterall and he's not really got any kicks or ground game.

ECWCock - CD: And finally, do you still have the One Glove?

AJ: You know what? It's somewhere, I think it's at my moms house. I've got different people from around the world interviewing me asking me if they can buy the glove, so you know, I gotta find that glove one day! Next time I'm at my moms house I'll find it!

 I am not for sale.

Actually, was a pretty good interview. But lol at him thinking his fight with Royce would have gone any different if he'd been more aggressive. Can't blame him for thinking so, but I'm just sayin'.

sawdusk - wish they had asked him about tapping out as early as he did...


In another interview, he was worried about getting fucked up as bad as other fighters he saw who fought earlier.

odd that he would then say in this interview he was completely shocked and waiting for the ref to stand them up...

can't imagine the mindset of a fighter who had little knowledge of what this event would be like standing there in the dressing room seeing the carnage unfold in the earlier bouts!!!

love hearing from these OG's of MMA...

the context of him saying he was expecting to get stood up is a little lost in the text form, he was just saying that his instinctive fighting mindset was to expect a stand up, he of course realised that it wouldnt actually happen.

Heres the audio version

 Yeah, set up a remach with Royce. He can be more aggresive, maybe put a "bullet in his gun" and see how he does.
Good Luck

Sounds like Jimmerson would like to forget the details. . .

In an column Big John McCarthy (who did not referee UFC 1) wrote for FIGHT magazine, he told the story of how the night before UFC 1 he had a discussion of styles with the trash-talking Jimmerson. Big John naively explained jiu-jitsu to Jimmerson, who quickly came to the conclusion that Royce was likely going to break his arm! He had his mind made up to tap ASAP before he walked to the cage.

That sort of puts the whole 'one glove' thing in a whole new light.
