yea, he was the prioneer of the UFC and MMA , but there were very few people who learned MMA back then, most people just wanted to go out and brawl with someone.
I am not sure about the stats, but I can almost bet any money that there wasnt more then 2 blackbelts or a belt even close to it back then. now you see a few black belts and belts close to the black belt in almost every division.
I guess what im trying to say is that his skills were far beyond what anyone had at that time. dont get me wrong, I am not trying to take anything away from him. I guess he was what GSP/BJ/Silva are of this time, almost unstoppable and far ahead of anyone else.
