    Retro Discussion: UFC 3: The American Dream



    First time seeing this, just say dreams were broken for the UFC this night. Anyone know these fighters outside of Shamrock and Gracie and maybe some fights I should check out from them?

    [Competitors]
    Keith Hackney
    Emmanuel Yarborough
    Ken Shamrock
    Christophe Leininger
    Harold Howard
    Roland Payne
    Royce Gracie
    Kimo Leopoldo

    Not really anyone interesting outside of what they did here. You'll be getting into some of the real pioneers soon. Kimo is the best name, but he wasn't a great fighter. He did fight Bam Bam Bigelow and it was horrible...

    I hate the tournament concept of the early UFC's, so tedious and you'd often see guys who won not be able to continue, because of injury.

    Yeah this Show was promoted even to the Poster with them wanting Shamrock vs Gracie 2 and both had to bow out due to injury and it was a bummer for me seeing it for the first time. Still both guys looked like Champions fighting through pain and Kimo vs Gracie the best fight of the night, but the idiot comes back later to get into the Ring when Royce has to bow out to say yeah I hurt the guy and put him out of the tourney. I'll never forget that final though!
