    I was rooting for him, but it didn't work out so well after the match where Royce threw in the towel. Apparently he did a Vale Tudo match after that.

    Harold Howard was fucking awesome. He had the first butterfly sweep in the Octagon, not to mention the first mullet.

    I believe he thought he had a stroke so he retired and as for where is he now, he is running the Lion's Den Dallas as well as assistant coaching Ken Shamrock's IFL team, running Art of War as well as Mark Cuban's new MMA promotion HDNet Fights.
    Sure you aren't thinking of Brian Johnston? He had a blood vessle broken when someone neck-cranked him in training and he couldn't fight anymore.

    Andy Anderson is an interesting case. After he lost to Hess, he stood in the MMA business for years. Read Clyde Gentry's book; he's all over it. Also look for him in the backgrounds in old UFC tapes. According to the book, he punched a drunk and out of hand Bas Rutten after the first IFC event and Ko'ed Paul Herrera in a bar fight.

    No I'm thinking of Guy. Check out his wiki sometime. He officially retired in 2005. He was supposed to fight Tito at UFC 50 but thought he had a stroke so he was hospitalized.

    Christophe Leninger (UFC 3 vs. Ken Shamrock, UFC 13 vs. Guy Mezger)

    Leninger continued to teach Judo in Arizona and fought several times in small local shows and local grappling tournaments. His last fight was a loss to Edwin DeWees when he was just starting out. He eventually got married had kids and sold his school. The last I heard he had to have hip replacement surgery and had largely stopped training. I ran into him a few years back, he seemed to be doing ok and looked to be in pretty good shape for a guy who had major surgery and had to be in his late 40's by then.

    lol @ Hess

    From Wiki: "Hess claims to have later been blacklisted from the UFC and never allowed to return, due to a contractual dispute with then promoter Art Davies. Hess has since challenged the UFC to allow him to return, an offer which they have yet to take him up on. [2] After UFC 5 Hess fired Lew Hicks as his manager and they went their separate ways, creating two separate schools of S.A.F.T.A.

    A year later at SB 2-SuperBrawl 2, where he lost by KO in 12 seconds. Hess has not fought professionally since this loss, but has stated in an interview [3] with Sherdog that if he was allowed to come back he would be "world champ" "

    I was wondering what happened to him.


    By the way, this is what happened to Hess: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HGm4io45z8E

    I think eye gouging and biting were made legal for that match, right?

    Brian is actually a friend of mine. Sad story. No, Mezger also suffered froma mild stroke. Now he coaches both for the IFL and WCL.
