Dan Severn was the guy responsible for opening the flood gates of wrestlers entering into MMA. If it where not for him and Mark Coleman you wouldn't have seen the rush of wrestlers entering into MMA. They would of found there way in at some point but it was Dan Severn that showed us the way.
Thank You Dan!

I ran into him back in late 2011, while he was on his way to visit his accountant in BC. I was there for a meeting as well and he had followed me over from a legal office just across the road, I asked him if he was stalking me, then shook his hand and said hello.

Great guy.

Nothing but love for the Beast. Thanks for all the great memories, Dan. Thanks for showing all of us that you can still be fighting as a pro into your 50's and still be healthy.

Best wishes to you.

A LOT of his fights were works, he should have been blacklisted from fighting 15 years ago. Tarnished his legacy.

Gotta love the man's attitude. He always seemed so positive and really did what he enjoyed doing. Like 9 or so years back He said in an interview that he may have one or two more years left and would like to finish his career where it started, in the UFC. It was not to be but he enjoyed competing too much to quit, constantly fighting in regional shows, as he said, "I have a competitive heart and like to stay out there and give small promoters a name to help fill their seats".

Granted, he fought guys who were like 3-8 and so on but anyway, how much bloody drive do you need at 50 to be able to still compete with 25-year olds? Dude is cool, no doubt about it.

Royce is only interested in a huge, huge fight so that was not to be. Coleman could use some extra cash but he said himself he is a LHW now and Dan must lose plenty of pounds first, that would not happen either. I'm sure Dan is happy with what he has done anyway and I wish him all the best in this new chapter of his life.

What's so amazing about Dan Severn is that he started MMA at an age when a lot of athletes would be retiring. He was like 37 or 38 when he fought in his first UFC back in 1994. It's amazing that he remained in the game for as long as he did. Just imagine if MMA had been around when he was a teenager.

It's too bad rematches against Mark Coleman, Ken Shamrock, and Royce Gracie never came together for Dan Severn.

Flannerz - Anyone got any idea why the Coleman, Shamrock and Gracie rematches never happened?

Rumors:

Royce asked for crazy money that no promoter would ever put up.

Coleman wants the fight at LHW or lower.

Shamrock does not want the fight.
