Dan Severn

despite all this randy couture jibber jabber
how come the legend Dan the Beast Severn isnt fighting in the ufc?His last mma bout which he won was on 6/9/2007
He fought pretty regularly this year up until his recent win
im just wondering why he isnt signed?
he has over 70 wins
and hes a legend
hopefully its not money.
could it be hes not a big draw to the new mainstream crowd?
does anyone know why he isnt signed?

Well, I'm not up to date on Dan Severn, but who has he fought lately to merit a contract with the UFC?

That guy must take speed or something, he's fought seven times this year already, and he's 49 years old! And he's 79-14-7 by now...

I haven't seen him fight since he was in the UFC, but I doubt he's that good anymore, at that age and all, or we would have heard more about him lately.

i'd agree to that. im sure if he were worth a UFC contract there'd be a little more media spotlight on him.

Because Dan Severn's old as shit, and he hand-picks his opponents. Not to mention that he's stuck in 1995.

I like Dan Severn and his glorious 'stache, but dude would get clobbered by the lowest-tier UFC fighter. I mean, didn't dude lose to freakin' Jonathan Wiezorek of all people?

well put Damone, I respect him for what he has done but .... he doesn't belong fighting in the ufc.... let alone i don't want to watch an event where an old man is hemorrhaging from the brain from a few sharp knees

I'm pretty sure Severn is happy fighting in these little no name organizations where the talent isn't as experienced as a fighter in the UFC. He knows he can keep winning where he is now. Lets look at who he has went up against in his last 10 fights...

Victor Vincelette 1 - 3 - 0
Terrell Pree 0 - 1 - 0
Jason Keith 1 - 2 - 0
Kasey Geyer 0 - 1 - 0
Clifford Coon 0 - 1 - 0
Dave Legeno 4 - 3 - 0 (lost)
Wade Hamilton 9 - 11 - 0
Chris Clark 4 - 18 - 0
Brian Heden 1 - 3 - 0
Skip Hall 2 - 4 - 0

Now lets skip a few and see the last few people he lost to

Joop Kasteel 15-6-0
Victor Valimaki 9-5-0
James Thompson 14-7-0
Tony Bonello 14 - 0 - 0
Ulysses Castro 7 - 4 - 0
Seth Petruzelli 7 - 4 - 0

Wow, when he fights someone that has at least a little bit of experience or at least a positive record (more wins than loses) he seems to lose, hmmmm
