Royce Gracie vs Kimo Leopoldo (Taekwondo) in UFC 3

UFC 3 was an eight-man tournament. Unlike today’s UFC, it didn’t have weight classes nor weight limit. Also, there was no time limit so the match could only be won by submission, throwing in the towel, knockout or referee stoppage.

Although Kimo was listed as a taekwondo fighter, he received his black belt after his MMA debut against Royce. In addition, Kimo was a dominant wrestler in high school and a promising football player until his ACL injury.
