Some great old school moments. I wish I'd seen the early UFCs before I'd heard of Vitor. The first time I saw him was the ultimate knockouts highlight against Waderlei. So when I went back and watched UFC 12, I was very surprised to hear he was a jiu jitsu guy. Must have been a hell of a shock for Tra Telligman who was expecting a Royce Gracie clone. Not exactly like the Sevren fight was it?

Vitor starts talking on the video while I'm scrolled down past it, and for a minute there I thought I was watching a Royce Gracie video.

They sound exactly alike

I don't see Rich having a chance in this one. Unless, of course, he's been drinking his pee.

Great videos, I would have preferred if you left Wanderlei out of it though. I always hate seeing him lose this fight.

Ever notice how Big John looks bored as fuck before the fights? Like he is saying to him self "fuck this job sucks, hope it's a quick Knock out so I can fucking go home"
