great read...

for all of the anticipation, the ultimate ultimate events never lived up to expectations..the first one especially, with the oleg/Ruas and oleg/Severn borefests..then the 2nd one was ruined by injuries..

just imagine if Belfort and Coleman had stayed healthy, they would have met in round one..holy shit, no one k new Belfort back then so would he have bumrushed and KOed Coleman?

if Ruas and Vovchanchin had been in as well, the tourney would have been amazing..they should have paid Ruas whatever he wanted or at least worked with him more..i would have loved to see him in place of Worshams or varelans..Ruas will always be a huge question mark in my mind..

I love how the old school fighters weren't always complaining about each other's weight. Nowadays guys are more hesitant to move up or down in weight to compete against each other. I'm thankful that we at least got to see Frye and Tank fight and later down the road Frye vs Ken.

Mark Hall was one tough SOB. The guy was outbrawling guys that outweighed him by 40+ lbs.

he got his shot in ufc by producing a gas station video of him disarming and beating down a robber.

The article brings back great memories. I was such a huge fan back then I couldn't work the day of a UFC pay-per-view - I was too nervous. Phone Post
