Was a member before the 2001 date shown here..

Can't remember why there was the big reset.

Anyway.

The thing nobody really mentions is that this forum used to be a huge grappling forum... more than a fighting forum. If you're new to the scene, its hard to realize that there weren't a lot of fighting events back 12-15 years ago. Some underground ones here and there and some local events too like King of the Cage and a few others.

UFC was in the dark ages period too... so what did people talk a lot about? BJJ, NAGA, GQ..etc.


A huge percentage of people discussed the BJJ Mundials just as much as they talked about PRIDE and the UFC. Naturally, as MMA came to, and more and more events popped up, naturally the conversation gravitated towards MMA and what it is now.

But things I remember, and i'll stray away from the original questions a bit since they were answered by a lot of people.

I remember:

- Robert Ferguson/Mat Furey... the original Lloyd Irvin(s) of the web.

- The Donbreakyourarmi

- Todd Atkins

- Reading PBPs in here about the big pride events as they were going on.

- Lloyd Irvin posting about his trips to brazil and getting promoted..etc.etc. (early signs of self promotion..etc)

- Having guys like Phil Baroni, Kenny Florian, Joe Lauzon, Jeremy Horn, Useless..etc, be just regular guys in the forums before they blew up as MMA guys.


so many things....

^^Great post.

It's really strange. So many things are really familiar in my head. Todd Atkins actually isn't.

Can somebody remind me?

H20Man (Ron Waterman) casually asked for some advice because he was fighting in the next UFC. I thought it was cool because he was a member and we didnt even know he was a pro fighter.

I remember the royce vs sakuraba fight was the biggest fight ever. I think sherdog had the play by play. Not 100% sure on that. I stayed up all night with the play by play. I think the fight ended around 8am eastern time.
The night randy spanked tito was probably the happiest night ever on the ug. It was like new years eve here. Most posters were thrilled.
Poster ryan g had the most mma tapes out of anyone. he was a young kid from what I remember. I think miller was 2nd.

Many great moments on the ug and the early days of sherdogs with all the dogs. Odog slydog topdog caldog.

The saddest moment on the ug was when caldog past away. Phone Post

whatever happened to that ryan g guy?

 

when I used to necro post I'd see a lot of his old stuff and comments, seemed like an educated mma fan, was posting all the time, then just vanished.

Awesome info.  Thanks.  Phil posted before he fought in the UFC? How'd the forum react when he beat Menne?

Is Dave Lang the biggest fraud or does someone else hold that title?

Why is there still a 911 Clown thread?

Who's the biggest name fighter that ever posted on UG?

Chaelismyhero - I read this whole thread. Great thread OP.

Now this isn't a real long time ago, but still was way before I was on the UG.

Did the UG Hughes or GSP would win the 2nd fight?

What was the reaction when Silva kneed Ace into the living death?

Good questions.  ANyone remember?

I had a Sherdog membership in 02 I simply came here only occasionally, I was a fair wheather fan till crocop/fedor chuck/Tito. There were alot of 'blue members only' threads that turned me off.
But I got a big question. Around 08 or 09 there was a magazine article about the beginnings of this site. I think it was Fight or Fighters Only, I have so many judo, black belt & MMA mags that I'm to lazy to find it...
But that article was a real history lesson on this site. I was so impressed I bought a blue ( which is expired) lol.
