The well-versed and experienced Mixed marital artist gives his take on a number of topics.
Dan Severn, who has had success in both UFC and the WWE, recently joined the "Duke Loves Wrasslin" podcast. During the interview, Severn shared his thoughts on former WWE star and fellow UFC Hall Of Famer, Ken Shamrock. Severn also gave his hilarious take on UFC President, Dana White. The following are submitted highlights.
Severn On If Al Snow Taught Him How To Throw A Punch:
"I can say it just like this... YES! Al Snow taught me how to strike and he did a horrible job. If I'm going to throw myself under the bus I'm going to take Al with me! Watching me strike was like watching stand-up comedy. When I found out I was going to be in my first UFC I trained 5 days, an hour and a half a day. Between Al and his two other professional wrestling protégés, they only had 1 old pair of boxing gloves between them. So one guy would get tired, then the next would come in and then he'd get tired, and then the other one would come in. I stayed in the entire time and they'd be arguing with each other saying, 'it's your turn, no it's your turn.' I never trained a single strike or a single legitimate submission. I'd stay out of range, close in and take my opponent down and make them scream or squawk and I was good to go. I don't think you can find another human being that can make that claim that the trained an hour and a half a day for 5 days with 3 professional wrestlers in a wrestling ring and yet got the results I got in MMA."
His Toughest Opponent:
"I always credit Mark "The Hammer" Coleman for probably kicking me the hardest. I got kicked so hard I saw three of him and the other two were just a figment of my imagination."
Thoughts On UFC President Dana White:
"The F-Bomb king. He says the F-Bomb quite a bit. He even has it on a painting up on his wall. The F-Bomb King."
