The first MMA event I ever watched was when Matt Hughes KO Carlos Newton with the power bomb off the cage. I wrestled in HS so it was cool to see these wrestlers throwing guys around and just destroying people. Soon after that my friend showed me some pride fights and I immediately fell in love with the sport. The first Silva fight I ever saw was ironically enough against Carlos Newton and Silva almost took his head off with a flying knee. Silva's style is what made me a huge fan of his. When he debuted in the UFC he faced Chris Leben who was in a six fight winning streak. Most people knew Chris Leben from TUF and so many people not to familiar with pride or much MMA didn't give Silva much of a chance. Silva wrecking Leben in his debut is probably in my top 3 moments of UFC history.

Re: MMA Discussion Thread

UFC 27 was the first UFC event I ever saw. I think I am probably the only person in the world who got into the UFC off of that event. I had seen a segment on the UFC on a sports business show and 27 was the next event happening so it was the first I saw.

Been a fan every since. Worked for sherdog for over 10 years which was amazing. Met so many people because of it.

Re: MMA Discussion Thread

I'm a "TUF noob" that show is what brought me to the dance. and like myers mentioned I was one of the noobs amazed at the destruction of leben by the spider. hopped my fat ass on the bandwagon and been riding shotgun ever since. I knew chris would probably beat him last week, but never expected such a horrible end to the fight and possibly the GOAT'S career. Really sad to see things go down the way they did, but I'm still glad I got to witness a once in a lifetime caliber athlete do his thing for so long

Re: MMA Discussion Thread

04 maybe 05 was the first time i got into MMA mainly the UFC, didn't get to see much pride until later due to it not been on tv over here or not that i knew of anyway.

Probably should but i can't remember the first fight i saw or event, might have been a fight night or TUF

Re: MMA Discussion Thread

First memory of MMA for me was Shogun getting screwed out of the title at UFC 104.

In a sense, glad Shogun got screwed because his KO of Machida at UFC 113 is

The earliest memory I have is GSP regaining the title vs Serra but I can't help shake the feeling I saw a few earlier events prior that. That is the big stand out moment though and the morning after that PPV I had my dad on the phone to a gym in my city sorting out my membership for the classes.

He back, he back. Not really but it's still good to see him up and smiling with his family.

Re: MMA Discussion Thread

Katsunori Kikuno vs. Quinn Mulhern was the hardest pick for me this card. Mulhern is sick 6'3" dropping down from welterweight. but i went with Kikuno due to that weight cut and flying east for Quinn.

also some other really awesome highlights someone needs to hire this guy
