    What are some lesser known facts about mma, ufc or fighters in general? Always cool to learn something new about this sport and the fighters involved.

    Cowboy didn't get his first TKO/KO win in mma until his 19th pro fight against Charles Oliveira. Cowboy comes from a 29-0 kickboxing background.

    Overeem is usually known as the best all around striker at HW but his upcoming opponent Jairzinho Rozenstruik actually has 6x as much kickboxing experience boasting a 76-8 record compared to Reems 10-4 record. Jair has 64 KOs and Reem 7 KOs.

    Don Madge 9-3-1 has had all 3 of his losses come from the same man Leon Mynhardt. What makes this even crazier is that all 3 losses come from different methods. Decision, Punches and Guillotine.

    There is no such thing as a height advantage in a fight.

    I think it attributes to having longer limbs and therefore a longer reach. That isn't always the case. Look at Fighter Kevin Lee who has a 92 inch reach at only 5'9. It's not about how tall you are, it's if you are effective with your length. Most fighters aren't. Not even Fighter Kevin Lee.

    -Royce Gracie was one of the weakest Gracies, and was chosen to prove a point about the efficacy of BJJ to the world.

    -Pride didn't get beat by the UFC, they were dominating every aspect of MMA. What happened was anti corruption sentiments spread through the Japanese government and the Yakuza's ties to Pride Fighting were exposed. Pride got all of it's revenue from the Network Fuji TV, and lost that contract due to the Yakusa ties and went bankrupt. Dana White like's to rewrite history on this but he's full of shit.

    - Tito vs Wanderlei Silva was the most controversial fight in all of MMA at the height of the UFC vs Pride rivalry.

    -The suggestion that UFC fighters were clean and Pride fighters were not was UFC Dana White propaganda and lies.

    -Dana White did actually do something good and put his money where his mouth was and made a deal with Pride that he would send Chuck into the grand prix and then Pride would send Sakuraba and Fujita over to the UFC to fight. But Pride pulled out on the deal after Chuck lost to Rampage in Pride.

    It was a dirty move and proof Dana tried. Although he's still a scumbag.
