    Hey fellas, my brother received a huge award at the AMAA’s this weekend at Gaylord National Convention Center and who had dinner with us? None other than Dan Severn. I loved the UFC in its early years and this man was a monster in the octagon. I had several conversations with him and he is one of the most laid back cool fellas I’ve met. So many cool stories from when he defeated Ken Shamrock. We had a great time at National Harbor, next time I’ll give you yell dukehokie, didn’t realize we were so close!

    I remember when he wrestled in WWF. I decided to look up his WIkipedia page and he had 127 mma fights in his career with a record of 101-19-7.

    Yea, he won the SUPERFIGHTS. He fought UFC when you even had to fight more than one man a night. That fight he had with the Russian was amazing.

    Awesome! See you there. I hope they have the dunk contest this year. With Zion...... well it could be epic! Maybe we can get a thread going soon on who all is going to CTC.
