This is part of the UFC we truly miss, the “Freakshow Fight”. These “Freakshow Fights” are fights that put two fighters against each other that really have no business fighting; size and category difference between the fighters.

What’s great about this fight is the fact that Gracie’s opponant is 3 times his weight and a legendary champion. Whats even more amazing is how Gracie beats him.
