I would love to see that if Royce accepts they both want to fight but both can’t figth top guys so they would be a good match-up

I don’t like this type of fight without protection…..I prefer the actual days MMA

Dan is a class act and has shown he deserves to still practice his art. I’m afraid a Gracie rematch could lead to a 15 minute humpfest though.

submission (fishnet choke)

that guy was going no where… cant turn away from punches when stuck in that fishnet those elbows looked painful. Never seen that before.

Gotta love Dan Severn, I’d love to see a rematch between Royce and Severn. Though I know Royce would never accept that match.

Royce would loose a fight with Dan today.

Royce’s success in the early days of MMA was due mainly to the fact that no one knew hardly anything about submissions (BJJ subs were way more advanced than any other type of submission grappling at the time)…. So Royce was able to smoke his opponents with relative ease despite being outweighed by more than 50 lbs. Today i am sure Dan has been boning up on his sub defense, plus he still outweighs Royce by 50 lbs so it would be an easy walk in the park for Dan.

In fact, i’m kinda disappointed in Dan for calling out Royce. Its like he’s being a bully. He should call out Ken Shamrock instead. That would be a more competitive fight, i think.

this fight is from July 6, 1997, the International Vale Tudo Championship 1: Real Fight Tournament. Dan Severn was 16–3–1 at the time.

So god damn boring theres always clinching and bs with dan severn when will this guy learn how to fight. Hes had almost 100 professional fights. Referee should break them apart.

Dan’s best fights have been his last few where he gets ko’d. Don’t want to see this….no thanks.

@straightAhead Royce would lose to him today? Matt hughes beat the s*** out of royce. Forget about dan severn. Any mma fighter today would beat him. These old school guys can’t compete with the new guys.

Kimbo slice would beat him …..j/k ;)

Crazy to see this guy still fighting at 53 while Whitney Houston is dead at 48 and MJ dead at 50

Good old vale-tudo times…
Always bring a smile to my face when I see an all time great literally using the fishnet and some elbows to smash the other guy.
And the people criticizing, go play with your legos. This wasn’t MMA as you know today. There was no money into it; not advanced production values, no WWE b.s., and yes, many of the techniques were rudimentary, but these guys were warriors like you rarely see nowadays. They could fight for hours and face many fighters in the same night.
So, learn to appreciate it for what it was, and not for it is today. It’s like calling Medieval knights lame because they didn’t carry a gun. It makes no sense.

The ring net sucked. There was no escaping.

dankarelli Says, in 2-14-2012 at 16:34:17 from    

wow he was totally trapped in that net like a bloody fish. Brutal and stupid net.

I love Dan Severn. He was an integral part of the sport…


I don’t like the interviews .. how he interprets his first bout w/ royce. I like him very much.. just not how he discusses royce..

Dan seems to make excuses. “it was a conscience thing” “he was holding back” “he thought helio was sick for letting him beat up royce” but you lost dan.. The ref raised royces hand that night. He knew the better technique that night

WELL HERES THE THING DAN.. YOU LOST. YOU DON’T HAVE TO ACCEPT IT..BUT.. you did lose. if you would have tried to strike royce more aggressively you would have had a triangle or armbar on your ass sooner.

I still like dan. He is a competitor n warriar..
I think dan would probably beat royce today. who knows. But it would be refreshing if he could just say.. in our first bout I didn’t know what a triangle choke was… and that technique was about to pop my head off.. so I indeed tapped. That would be refreshing..LOL
