MMA Seminars is bringing UFC legend Dan 'The Beast' Severn to Australia! He will be making appearances & delivering seminars between Saturday the 15th and Saturday the 22nd of March, 2014.
For those too young to remember, Dan Severn was the runner up in UFC 4, losing to Royce Gracie via triangle choke after maintaining the dominant position throughout a fight that lasted more than 15 minutes. A competitive wrestler, Severn would later say that he could not bring himself to strike the much smaller Gracie.
Severn went on to become the UFC 5 tournament winner & the Ultimate Ultimate 1995 tournament winner, defeating Paul Varelans, 'Tank' Abbott & Oleg Taktarov in the same night. This win earned Severn his place in a Superfight against then current UFC Champion, Ken Shamrock. Severn defeated Shamrock via split decision.
Dan Severn is:
- The only triple crown winner in the UFC's no-holds-barred era
- One of only ten fighters in the UFC Hall of Fame
- The owner of one of the highest winning percentages in cage fighting history
- One of only three fighters with more than 100 victories
- Probably the only professional heavyweight that can claim lifetime chemical free status
- A heck of a nice guy!!!
