It was actually back in 2000-01. Shane was trying to convince Vince to buy the UFC befoe Zuffa did but Vince wasnt interested and ended up buying WCW and ECW instead.
wonder if he regrets that decision today lol
...who knows how it would have turned out though if Vince/WWE had bought it? (they don't exactly have a great record for ventures other than pro-wrestling, lol). Plus, Zuffa invested a ton of their own money (and time) to make the UFC successful... Vince might not have been prepared to do this.
MAN! You guys see that Ferguson/Vannata fight? Shyt! Possible fight of the year, definitely a Round of the year. Crazy fight.
Yeah, that was insane... Vannata held Ferguson's leg, then freaking head-kicked him(!). Ferguson did really well to get through that - and then get the choke in the next round.
Vannata might be one to watch... gotta keep those hands up though.
Ferguson came over some major adversity in that one man, I thought it was gonna get stopped for sure.
You're right about Lando being one to watch. For him to come in two weeks notice and put on a stellar performance like that was very impressive. Dude's got a hell of a chin on him. Really does need to keep those hands up though.
