    Old UFC mini tournament were full of mismatches. Anyway Hindsight is 20/20.

    kerr was a great fighter and a key figure in the early, my preferred, era of mma, who was a powerful wrestler and because of his strength and skill and likely juice induced performance was never too tested in his early fights by someone who could neutralize his takedowns... stott was an army ranger, and at least he probably went into the fight clean.

    also, stott apparently was/is a bodybuilder.

    this was during a time when it still appeared vaguely possible that special crazy traditional martial artists might have something. mark kerr embodies progress for the sport in this fight - jokers get cast aside. in his prime and at that moment of mma evolution - kerr was damn near unstoppable

    It's crazy how much things have changed. I do miss the old tournament structure, though.

    Looks don't mean much. Kerr didn't fare as well against this short chubby guy

    Being an Army Ranger in the 80s/early 90s (coupled with being a bodybuilder) increases the chance of him not being clean. A pretty driven dude.

    But he is currently at least, a big drug-free bodybuilding proponent.

    Does anyone know what he went to prison for?

    powerlifter rather than body builder it seems, actually.. but im surprised they didnt have the RIP speech on there, i personally dont think less of him for it, i think they were trying to make the program entertaining

    Kerr was a beast in those early days. Wrestler who took the game seriously and had an elite ground game. IMO he would have done pretty decent in peak form even if he were competing today.

    absolutely, especially if they were to allow heatbutts. nobody was able to stop his takedowns because he was too strong, skilled, and fast. certainly one of the best wrestlers to ever fight in mma.

    Stott's complaint about the stoppage was legendary and was the butt of jokes on the internet for years.

    He claimed his "armadillo defense" was just kicking in.

    Kerr had no idea how close to death he really came.

    Vovchanchyn had a ton of experience and a long list of KO wins when he fought Kerr. Stott's style was some shit he invented called RIP and his punches look like the ones in pro wrestling

    Kerr was a phenom at the time.

    He combined his elite level wrestling with underrated, powerful striking.
