UFC 1 Animated GIF Set 1 (Royce Gracie vs Art Jimmerson)

Yesterday was the 20th anniversary of the premiere of the UFC (Ultimage Fighting Championship). Put another way:

Please check out the above link for the full video of the first ever UFC!

I've made some animated GIF's in celebration! 

Come join me in reliving history! Enjoy these Royce Gracie vs Art Jimmerson highlights GIFs!

The Entrance!

Royce Kicking!
The Front Kick in Portuguese is called "Pisão"

Takedown and Mount with Grapevine

Slomo's of the Takedown and the Tapping

After I watched this 20 years ago, I couldn't sleep! I was so hyped up! There was not something like this before on this big of a "stage"! All of the Martial Arts claimed their art was too deadly or that they would win if they fought other styles. But no one tested their style against other styles. And then along came Rorion Gracie and the birth of the UFC!

Respect to Royce Gracie and Art Jimmerson!

NOTE:  Deepest thanks to both my friends Badger and Armando Basulto for teaching me the name of the Front Kick.
