    I started thinking about it after the UFC signed Louis Taylor and then went back and checked - Eastern Illinois University has sent 6 fighters to the UFC:

    Matt Hughes
    Brian Ebersole
    Kenny Robertson
    Mike Russow
    Matt Veach
    Louis Taylor

    Any other small or lesser known college send a large number of fighters to the UFC?

    They're not bad with football either. Coaches Sean Payton, Mike Shanahan and ex-Vikings HC Brad Childress, plus Tony Romo QB'd there. I grew up in Southern Illinois...unfortunately. lol.
