  1. Frank’s absence from the UFC Hall of Fame is absurd. He is one of the few champions to retire as champion, and his fight with Tito was legendary at the time. He’s also one of the first warriors to demonstrate true all-around strength.

  2. The event attracted a sold-out crowd of 18,265 attendees, smashing what was then the North American MMA attendance record. It was also the first time the Associated Press had ever served at an MMA event. So much about this show was revolutionary, but much of the history it produced has gone unnoticed.

  3. “The massive left hook puts him to sleep!” says Phil Baroni. “That’s an odd way to characterize an overhand right,” someone else says. “I’m the best EVAA!” says CTE.

  4. At the time, I was training at Frank’s gym and had front-row seats for this fight. According to the story, Gracie Barra provided a document claiming that Cesar had a 12-0 or 15-0 unbeaten MMA record in Brazil, and that was all he needed to get licensed.
