Jim Brown did commentary....what do you want? He had no Martial Arts experience at all, but he was like 500-0 in bare knuckle domestic squabbles.

Jim Brown- "Yeah right about now he's tappin out, that is a luxury my first wife did not have, tap about all you want woman there ain't no referee in my living room."

LOL. Funny thing is...I can remember watching it with some buds when I was in the military stationed in Alaska. The production was indeed horrible, but we didnt care. We were drinking and enjoying the simple fact that we was watching this shit legally. I can remember thinking...how great is this! This is going to blow up...there is no way people can not love this stuff. Of course I was right! It only took a little over a decade...lol.

Well I was a teenager and I loved it. It reminded me of bloodsport which I loved, and was always into martial arts as a kid. Gracie was my idol for a while.

Everytime i watch old UFC videos like this, it really makes me wonder how the UFC didnt end up failing. Makes you really appreciate Dana White and his ability to take the UFC from that and turn it into what it is today.

it did fail, dana is the one that brought it back to life.

someone once asked me when we talk about PrideFC why we never put
"the" in front of it, i asked him, "do you put the word 'the' in front of God?"

"Having a foot to your kidney is like having a little Ninja super-glued to your back" is that honestly what he said?

Also bear in mind guys "pain hurts."

Paragon of wisdom.
