In this interview by Michael Schiavello, Frank Dux reveals not just that Bas Rutten’s liver shot came from him, but that the UFC has actually based on and inspired by him.
“The first thing is, it was called the Ultimate Fight Challenge,” reveals O’Sensei Dux. “I was known by Victor Moore as the Ultimate Fighter or the Ultimate Fight Champion. Nobody could beat me – I retired undefeated. I mean truly undefeated.”
“They’re going to call it, to honor me, the way the representative talked to me, they’re going to call it the Ultimate Fight Challenge.”
