    I'm watching the old UFCs again, and every time they introduce Royce, they keep saying "his father never lost a fight". Why, when the kimura lock was renamed for the guy who used it to beat him?

    indeed, also:

    In May 1955 at the YMCA in Rio de Janeiro, Hélio participated in a 3 hour 40 minute fight against his former student Valdemar Santana, with Hélio losing by technical knockout due to exhaustion. It is often claimed that that fight is the longest fight in history; however, that distinction belongs to a wrestling match at 1912 Olympics that lasted 11 hours and 40 minutes.

    Oh. None of the fights I've lost were fights. They were squabbles. So I've never lost a fight either. :mamoru:

    Just out of sheer boredom I looked up Rickson Gracie and found this fun fact I found laughable

    Rickson has raised the ire of some in the MMA community by criticizing the abilities of current top fighters, claiming that he could still beat them easily today. In a recent interview with Tokyo Sports, Rickson argued that Fedor Emelianenko is a great athlete, but possesses "so-so" technical ability, and that he (Rickson) is "100% sure" that he would defeat him.[12] Previous comments of this sort that Rickson made about Antônio Rodrigo Nogueira prompted Wanderlei Silva to say that Rickson is "living in a fantasy world."[13]

    although his professional mma record is 11-0
