MMA Fighting spoke to UFC 1 star Art Jimmerson on Thursday about working at the UFC Gym, how he ended up fighting on the UFC 1 card, why he chose to only wear one glove, his memories of the event, the rise of the UFC, his failed attempt at a rematch against Royce Gracie and why he wants to fight Kimbo Slice in boxing.

I wonder how many times they are going to ask this guy why he only wore 1 glove.

Think Kimbo is too young and too big and strong from him to fight, Jimmerson is 48 years old. He'd have about 40 pounds on a younger Art and I'm sure Art has lost a lot of muscle since then. I think Kimbo would blast Art. I guess Art is just looking for a payday, or perhaps to talk himself into getting some attention.

But I'd really enjoy seeing that Art vs. Royce rematch. Could see Art taking that one. And while it probably won't happen, it's not that unrealistic I think. I could see it happening. They'd need to drum up interest to see how much money could be made.

I couldn't see Art beating Royce. I could see him beating Kimbo though. I'd be more interested in seeing him vs. Kimbo in Boxing than him vs. Royce in MMA.

Great interview.I enjoyed hearing about the one glove,and about how he just jumped in the cage pretty uninformed.Also about him beating up on Don "The Dragon" Wilson.

Mix6APlix - The irrelevance of this is mind bottling.

 Irrelevant??  You must be kidding or you're an idiot.  It's great seeing where the original fighters are who started this whole thing rolling.

It's called history dork.

He's a brown belt now. He would tap Royce at this point.

Seems like a nice guy, glad he's got a job with UFC. I will probably still use him as the butt of jokes.

Damn it, do I really have to be the asshole that points out that he now sounds like he is totally mentally handicapped?
