Tim Sylvia, Ricco Rodriguez, Wes Sims, Josh Thomson, Tiki and Pete Spratt all were on a special UFC episode of Blind Date. Frank Trigg was on kept

 

Heath Herring has the most fights in the history of PRIDE

 

Teila Tuli, who lost to Gerard Gordeau at UFC 1, played Kemo in Forgetting Sarah Marshall. Gerard Gordeau continued the night with some of Tuli?s teeth stuck in his foot. After he returned home to the Netherlands he had to go months of treatment for fear of blood poisoning.

 

Bas Rutten is 2-3 against Frank and Ken Shamrock combined, but 26-1-1 against everyone else

 

The UFC has held 1,089 fights (as of UFN 17). 32% have ended in a submission, 38% by KO/TKO, 28% by decision. Over 600 fights, PRIDE is almost identical. 31% submission, 34% KO/TKO and 31% decision.

 

Jason Reinhardt, who lost to Joe Lauzon at UFC 78 is 20-1 with 20 finishes, 19 in the first round

 

Troy Mandaloniz was the referee in the Anderson Silva/Yushin Okami fight

 

Mac Danzig was a sponsored skateboarder and is a professional photographer.

 

Art Jimmerson, who lost to Royce Gracie at UFC 1 when Royce mounted him, is still listed as an active fighter on the UFC website.

 

At a charity event, Bas Rutten accidently stepped on Brian Urlacher?s foot. Bas apologized and Urlacher refused to accept. Bas tried to make peace but Urlacher asked Bas if ?wanted to take this outside.? Bas laughed and said yes. The bouncers diffused the situation and told Urlacher who Bas was. Urlacher quickly apologized

 

Rampage was on **** teaching Ryan Dunn how to shoot for a takedown.

 

Zane Frasier was invited to UFC 1 because he beat up Frank Dux in the lobby at a Karate competition.

 

Gerarld Gordeau was invited because he was from the same gym as Ernesto Hoost and the organizers couldn?t afford Hoost

 

At Vale Tudo Japan '95, a 154 lb Japanese fighter named Yuki Nakai took on UFC 1 finalist Gerard Gordeau in the first round. Gordeau gouged his eyes so bad that Yuki suffered permanent blindness in one of them. He still won the fight by heel hook and his next fight by armbar before losing to Rickson Gracie in the finals. Rickson said after that he purposely never hit Yuki in the face out of respect. Yuki refused interviews for many years out of fear that it would have a negative impact on MMA.

 

At UFC 9, Zane Frasier kneed Cal Worsham while he was running at him in the chest breaking three ribs, one punctured his lung narrowly missing his heart which was badly bruised. In the hospital he was told that his survival was in question.

To this day it is the worst injury ever incurred at a UFC event. Worsham still won the fight

 

Dan Severn is also writer for Penthouse

 

Phil Baroni won body-building competitions as a teenager

People consider him the best HW in the world in every division he fights in' date=' but the saddest part is he's not proven yet. The proven place for MMA artist is the UFC. By then a person who is unproven and admired by the people as the best is commonly called as overrated.[/quote']
