UFC 27 Wiki Update Wiki

While the undercard was nothing to write home about, the main event of UFC 27 was one of the best in the company's early history. UFC legend Dan Severn returned to the promotion he had dominated to fight current top heavyweight striker Pedro Rizzo. Although Severn was the fan-favorite fighter of the event, he was destroyed by Rizzo when he verbally submitted after sustaining punishing leg kicks from the Brazilian for 1:32.


In the announcing booth, former UFC Middleweight Champion Frank Shamrock replaced Jeff Blatnick after retiring from active competition and relinquishing his title months earlier.
