    Was Lober in Fred's corner during his fight with Igor Vovchanchyn? That wouldn't be surprising, being that all of the American fighters were considered a team in that Ukranian IFC event. I know Lober did corner Paul Varelans for his fight with Kimo in the UU '96, though.

    Fred's style was called Budokan Kung-Fu. Anybody know what that is?

    I just looked up the video. It seems that a lot of the American fighters walked out with Floyd:



    Edit: The commentators said he trained with Red Heard, who also fought on the card. Heard was a big, tough grappler who looked like a pirate.

    David Hood? I saw that fight. Hood put up a good fight because he stood up during a scramble and kicked Heard in the face.

    Yeah, Dave was the senior student at my first gym. Rickson trained him for that fight.

    Gordeau was a savate fighter but he was a Dutch champion kyokushin fighter and high ranking karateka, too.
