In 1993, the UFC held their first event in Denver, Colorado, planting the seeds for an entire sport to begin growing out of this barely legal event. The mastermind behind the concept was Art Davie, who held onto an idea for years until he was finally able to turn it into a reality. Davie has just released a book explaining the history of the first UFC and all of the tumultuous events leading up to it, and I had a chance to chat with him about damn near everything!

In part three of this interview series, Art Davie discusses how Bill Wallace got the commentary gig at the first UFC and his horrible job doing that, as well as the story of the infamous Art Jimmerson incident, where he wore one glove to fight Royce Gracie - but now, we have even more to that story that makes it even more shocking and unbelievable!

Art also gives his opinion on how early fighters began to cross-train in different martial arts styles, and if that evolution was a good thing for the company in those early days, or an unexpected problem.
