UFC Hall of Fame: Dan Severn
A former Olympic-level wrestler who bristled whenever boxers were called the toughest fighters on the planet, Dan Severn saw the emerging sport of MMA as a platform to prove to the world that wrestling was the ultimate martial art. Debuting at UFC 4, he stunned the audience by suplexing his way to the final, where he beat Royce Gracie for 15 long minutes before, finally, getting caught in a triangle. “The Beast” returned to win not only the UFC 5 tournament, but also the Ultimate Ultimate 1995 tournament, and UFC Superfight Championship before leaving the UFC. Severn holds wins over Ken Shamrock, Tank Abbott, Oleg Taktarov and Forrest Griffin in a 18-year career that finally ended with an amazing 101-19-7 record in 2012.
