The good thing about the Gladiator was that he, essentially, was noone. or rather, he was everyone, being a personification of an ideal...not a specific champion.
Great point, Dave, I hadn't even thought about that aspect.

Edgar, on the other hand, is a current champ & therefore much more relevant.
This isn't a list of all the champions, Dave, just the men who helped to build the UFC. If it were all the champions, you'd also have to include Carlos Newton, Matt Serra, Dave Menne, Murilo Bustemante, Frank Shamrock, Rashad Evans, Lyoto Machida, Mauricio Rua, Mark Coleman, Maurice Smith, Bas Rutten, Kevin Randleman, Josh Barnett, Ricco Rodriguez, Frank Mir, Andrei Arlovski, Antonio Rogerio Nogiuero & Shane Carwin.
Did I call the Roman thing or what? Hahaha
Also, Dana's not the one that missed Rich, it was the production company. It's because Dana caught the mistake that this intro took so long to come out.


If not for him & Forrest, this sport isn't popular. Were you a fan of MMA before that fight? I wasn't. I didn't even know it existed.
I heard about the UFC at between UFC 54 and UFC 55. I never heard of TUF until I got here They still should have included Jens and Patrick because they are really well known
