MMA News: Dan Severn Gets Knocked out Seeking 100th Victory

Dan Severn is a UFC Hall of Fame fighter, the first one to be exact.

He fought in the old days of the UFC against other legends such as Ken Shamrock and Royce Gracie. He has been a powerful wrestler, UFC tournament winner and an ambassador to the sport.

The bad part of this story is that Dan is still fighting. He is now 53 years old and he has not fought in the UFC in over 14 years yet he pushes on. He should be at home relaxing, enjoying retirement from fighting and the rest of his life.

But, instead he was in the cage for the 124th time. In 2009, 2010 and 2011 he won 10 fights in a row, but recently dropped two in a row including this knockout loss on May 20.
