Dan Severn and Ken Shamrock are sexy

MMATorch has put up the third part of an interview from 2000 with Art Davie, former owner of the UFC and Conan the Barbarian enthusiast. In this part of the interview, Art goes into detail on the brilliant marketing and advertising strategy that would bring the company to the edge of ruin in 2002.

This interview also features an awesome out-of-context quote by our man Art:
it's sexy to see a Ken Shamrock and a Dan Severn grappling and punching. Sexier than boxing.
The article also discusses the public's original suspicion that UFC fights were fake, like pro wrestling or the moon landing. It's kinda fun reading people's reactions to this back in the day. It reminds me of a more innocent time where sanctioned fighting was outlawed along with other stupid stuff like women's rights.
