    It's soon to be the 20th anniversary of one of the biggest and most important events in the sport's history.

    Flip phones were all the rage, Windows 98 ran on most computers, Dana White was done with boxercizing and working as a manager to Tito Ortiz and Chuck Liddell and the UFC was about to be sold in the coming months.

    The year was 2000 and the sport wasn't commonly known as MMA back in those days, but referred to as NHB (No Holds Barred) *Interesting point: Though the first use of the word does date back to 1993 https://www.latimes.com/archives/la-xpm-1993-11-15-ca-57200-story.html

    This event was significant due to the sheer quality of its fighters; we had Royce Gracie, Mark Kerr, Enson Inoue, Mark Coleman, Igor Vovchanchyn, Kazuyuki Fujita, Kazushi Sakuraba, Gary Goodridge, Ken Shamrock and Guy Mezger among some of baddest men on the planet at the time competing in this 16-man tournament.

    My bad, I guess I meant the 2-day anniversary of the fight that will live forever in the millions of Sherdog postings that never seem to die, was it rigged by the deep state? did the illuminati give Conor the victory because he found out the earth was flat? is Conor an alien? Those are the important questions.

    That event was truly epic

    I think events like this are pretty much gone forever.
