UFC Hall of Fame: Pat Miletich
Pat Miletich is a genuine MMA original, dominating the embryonic US MMA scene in the mid 1990s before getting called up to compete in the four-man, one night UFC 16 welterweight tournament in March 1998. Miletich won that and returned at UFC 17.5 to annex the inaugural UFC welterweight championship, too. Four successful defenses followed, until mounting injuries got the better of him in May 2001. In addition to his own career, he has trained dozens of elite fighters including UFC champions Matt Hughes, Jens Pulver, Tim Sylvia and Robbie Lawler. He retired with a 29-7-2 record and as one of only five men to ever hold both a UFC tournament and a UFC world title.
