UFC Hall of Fame: Bas Rutten
Sebastiaan “Bas” Rutten is a true MMA pioneer. A kickboxer who was recruited to compete in the original Pancrase event in September 1993, the Dutchman not only became perhaps the biggest star in Pancrase history – winning the King of Pancrase title on several occasions – but also capped off his career by switching to the Octagon and winning the UFC heavyweight title. Here are his biggest wins in Pancrase, his two UFC bouts, and his retirement fight in the WFA.
