The former logo of the UFC, used from to Early competition: The tournament was inspired by the Gracies in Action video-series produced by the Gracie family of Brazil which featured Gracie jiu-jitsu students defeating martial-arts masters of various disciplines such as karatekung fuand kickboxing.
The tournament would also feature martial artists from different disciplines facing each other in no-holds-barred combat to determine the best martial art and would aim to replicate the excitement of the matches Davie saw on the videos.
Davie drafted the business plan and twenty-eight investors contributed the initial capital to start WOW Promotions with the intent to develop the tournament into a television franchise.
Art Davie functioned as the show's booker and matchmaker. Royce Gracie's submission skills proved the most effective in the inaugural tournament, earning him the first ever UFC tournament championship  after submitting Jimmerson, Shamrock, and Gordeau in succession.
The show proved extremely successful with 86, television subscribers on pay-per-view. It's disputed whether the promoters intended for the event to become a precursor to a series of future events. Never in a million years did these guys think they were creating a sport.
He says, "Clearly, both Campbell and Meyrowitz shared my unwavering belief that War of the Worlds [note 1] would be a continuing series of fighting tournaments—a franchise, rather than a one-night stand. During this early part of the organization, the UFC would showcase a bevy of different styles and fighters.
Although the first events were dominated by jiu-jitsu, other fighting styles became successful: Davie continued with SEG as the show's booker and matchmaker, as well as the commissioner of Ultimate Fighting, until December It banned biting and eye-gouging, and allowed techniques such as hair pulling, headbuttinggroin strikesand fish-hooking.
In a UFC 4 qualifying match, competitors Jason Fairn and Guy Mezger agreed not to pull hair—as they both wore pony tails tied back for the match. That same event saw a matchup between Keith Hackney and Joe Son in which Hackney unleashed a series of groin shots against Son while on the ground.
The UFC had a reputation, especially in the early days, as an extremely violent event, as evidenced by a disclaimer in the beginning of the UFC 5 broadcast which warned audiences of the violent nature of the sport.
This proved an important development, because singles matches would feature fighters who suffered no prior damage from a previous fight in the same event, unlike tournament matches.
Singles matches would become a staple in the UFC for years to come. The "Superfight" would eventually completely phase out tournament matches; by UFC Brazilthe UFC abandoned the tournament format for an entire card of singles matches aside from a one-time UFC Japan tournament featuring Japanese fighters.
McCain himself led a campaign to ban UFC, calling it "human cockfighting", even sending letters to the governors of all fifty US states asking them to ban the event. In response to the criticism, the UFC increased cooperation with state athletic commissions and redesigned its rules to remove the less palatable elements of fights while retaining the core elements of striking and grappling.
UFC 12 saw the introduction of weight classes and the banning of fish-hooking. For UFC 14gloves became mandatory, while kicks to the head of a downed opponent were banned.favorite this post Nov 22 Chevy Business Coupe w/ motor and transmission Project Car $ (Earleville, MD) pic map hide this posting restore restore this posting $ favorite this post Nov 22 Chevy Master Deluxe Project/Parts Car $ (Earleville, MD) pic map hide this posting restore restore this posting.
