UFC - Best of Mark Coleman.mpg - Google Video
UFC 27 Pedro Rizzo vs Dan Severn - Google Video
back when coleman, frye, shamrock, abbott, and gracie ruled the ring.
Thanks for the Severn clip, nastiest leg kick ever in the UFC besides Hardonk on Pendergarst so far.

I also have to give props to my main man Oleg Taktarov. He set the stage for scary Russian fighters.
I don't understand how Couture won either. He won round 1 10-8 IMO but other than that Rizzo dominated it start to finish. Rizzo was someone you didn't want to trade with or you would get KOd, ask Tank .

It's odd to believe that was Goodridge doing that. After that, Gary just became this oafish standup fighter. I still dig Big Gary though.

Tank vs Rizzo was such a satisfying KO. Rizzo gives tank the nastiest leg kick you'll ever see, then follows up with a really hard shot to the chin. It was great seeing someone who took the sport so seriously in Rizzo, KO someone who made a mockery out of it.

Ya but it was a great fight though

1. He who spares the bad injures the good

2. To compete is to live, but in order to fight you must first begin by digging two graves.

3. No good deed shall go unpunished.

But, at the same time, he never changed up his style, bashed other fighters, and just in general didn't respect anyone. Tank's style brought in people like Alex Karalexis and other worthless one dimensional strikers. I recognize Tank is a pioneer in his own right, but I have never liked the guy. He looked like some kid's dad after 1 too many Wild Turkey shots, and he fought like it as well. He was a bar fighter who never evolved.

He was a master of disaster as a pioneer, but today he would just be a disaster...

1. He who spares the bad injures the good

2. To compete is to live, but in order to fight you must first begin by digging two graves.
