|GSP sparring with Royce Gracie|
20 years apart. It was nice to see two of the greatest fighters of all times sparring together. For those who don't know, Royce Gracie is one the top 3 MMA fighter of all time. And probably the greatest UFC fighter past, present, and future.
UFC 20th ANNIVERSARY
I can tell you that things changed for the worse.
Twenty years ago, it was the first ever UFC. UFC was The Big Thing. No rules, no gloves, no shoes, no rounds, no time-limit, no weight categories, no drug testing, nothing stupid and crappy. Just two warriors colliding in the Octagon. It was fighting at his purest form. It was great!
3 ways to win
In an 8-man elimination 1-night tournament. So to win the UFC Championship, the 6'1", 175-lb Royce Gracie needed to outlast 3 bigger and stronger fighters in order to get the title.
Fighting 3 times in the same night!!
Todays UFC fighters hardly fought three times a year!!!
Royce Gracie won 3 UFC Championships that way.
Royce Gracie's standard of excellence will never be equalled.
