If anybody was drunk, it was Art Jimmerson and the one boxing glove on one hand but that's about it.

There was nothing even remotely close to resembling drunken street fighters when Royce introduced America to GJJ.
i dont think hes talking about just royces fights.

Was always interested in seeing how styles compared to each other, so when the first UFC came out, I watched that and have continued to watch it ever since.

That was one of the most interesting aspects of the first couple of UFCs. What I was getting at earlier was how it not only bought all these very different styles together. It also demonstrated that in the heat of battle all these unique styles quickly went out the window and were replaced with scrappy brawling.

Gracie was probably the only practitioner who didn't panic and was able to stay true to his style and training.

I watched Royce Gracie win three of the first four UFC tournaments and after that I was hooked. Had to start training jiujitsu and learn more about it all.

FN rnd 2...then I started to watch some boxing, but I didn't feel satisfied with what I was watching. Boxing is fine but there is something missing.

Then a friend of mine made me watch some Pride event...and I found what was missing.

I havn't missed an event since then and manage to get my hand on all the UFC, most SF, all the PRIDE, DREAM and my objective is to have most of the important MMA event on files.

Nah, not even close. He was a wrestler before anything else. He only went into boxing for some extra coin when MMA was really struggling.

Well, it was really Mark Kerr and his documentary Smashing Machine. Once I found out about PrideFC, I ordered the very next event on PPV and watched all of them up until the swan song.
