MMA’s early years: UFC 27

The UFC is the highest level of competition in mixed martial arts fighting in the world. They have events several times a year where the best fighters are set up to fight against other fighters that are near the same standing. These fighters continue to fight a few times a year in these events in attempts to become the best fighter in the world in their respective weight classes. In the year 200 there were several UFC events. In September there was an event called Ultimate Bad Boys and it was the 27th UFC event.


The UFC 27 event was following the Field of Dreams event that took place near the corn fields of Iowa. While this event did not feature the remembrance of a great sports movie like the last event, it did feature one of the great wrestlers from previous years in the UFC. This event would be held in New Orleans, Louisiana.


Dan Severn is remembered as one of the best UFC fighters of all time. He returned for UFC 27 to take on Pedro Rizzo. These fighters would square off in a heavyweight bout.


This event also featured a new announcer. This announcer was well known by UFC fans as Ken Shamrock was a former UFC legend. He was one of the original top fighters in the UFC. In his day he would compete in the events that featured fighters from tons of weight classes. He took the spot that Jeff Blatnick normally held in the announcers’ booth.

Severn had been away from the ring for a while and Rizzo was able to win the fight. The fight was won by verbal submission because of leg kicks.
