Back in 2005, Rampage Jackson fought Shogun Rua in at Pride FC (Pride Never Die!).  Shogun put on a dominating performance and stopped Rampage in the first round.  It was a classic Pride fight that you can now watch from the point of view of the referee.  Here is a ref-cam look at the fight.

 

 

From the YouTube video description:

Los Angeles: On November 2, 2011, at around 11:40 p.m., Rampart Division officers responded to a radio call of an "Assault suspect armed with a gun" at a hotel located in the 300 block of N. Vermont Avenue. When the officer's arrived, they saw a man on the ground being held by two citizens.

Shortly before police arrived, the desk clerk at a local hotel took notice of a man with a back pack who walked into the lobby and began to suspiciously look around. He asked the clerk about the price of a room, and then pointed a gun at him and demanded money. The suspect walked around the counter where the clerk stood and told him to open the cash register. The clerk, fearing he was going to be shot, opened the register and gave the suspect money.

Team Blackhouse is a tight knit group of world class fighters. Antonio "Big Nog" Nogueira's stunning KO of Brendan Schaub set off a celebration frenzy backstage at Rio's UFC 134. Even Anderson Silva, who was prepping for his title defense joined in the festivities as the room erupted in joy. Check out this amazing video of the joyful celebration for an MMA legend.

Dan Miller fought one of the bravest fights ever in the Octagon at UFC 134, when he took on Rousimar Palhares.  In the first Dan had his moments, and he almost knocked Palhares out in the first round.  He took a beating in the fight, but showed his extreme toughness and heart by battling back the entire fight.  Dan has never been stopped in a fight, and not many people can say that.  He's fought a murderers row in the UFC and he is always in every fight until the final bell rings.

Dan fights out of the AMA Fight Club in New Jersey, and he's trained by Mike Constantino.  Mike was down in Brazil cornering Dan and he and Dana White took time out to make a video for fight fans in New Jersey.  NJ was being hit hard at the time by Hurricane Irene, so a lot of people didn't get the opportunity to see the fights, a situation that was on Dana's mind in Brazil.  Mike shot a bunch of behind the scenes videos of the event, so check out the AMA Fight Club YouTube channel for all the videos.  Here is Dana's message to the people of New Jersey:

A new era has dawned for the UFC.  The biggest MMA promotion on Earth just got bigger by joining forces with the Fox Network.  This means more free fights for fans, and more exposure for the sport in general.  There are big changes coming in the UFC broadcasts as well, including axing the Gladiator Guy intro.  It begins!  Check out the UFC on Fox promo video.
