Old School MMA Review: UFC 3

Royce Gracie gets his toughest test in the octagon, bizarre matches, and a startling turn of events in the finals, as we look back on "UFC 3: The American Dream"!

The Old School MMA Review returns, as we tackle one bizarre early SEG UFC event, UFC 3: The American Dream!

Originally billed as champion vs challenger, with the intent to see the returning Ken Shamrock take on the two-time tournament winner Royce Gracie, what really unfurled as the night went on shocked MMA fans everywhere. Some of the toughest martial artists to date stepped into the octagon and put on some wild brawls, so join The Fight Nerd and Zane Simon as we look back at the first David VS Goliath bout in the cage with Keith Hackney VS Emmanuel Yarbrough, the debut of Kimo, and Harold Howard's flip kicks with our review of UFC 3.
