Dan Severn, one of the earliest and most legendary stars of the UFC, continued his MMA career on Saturday by racking up his 97th, and 8th straight, victory in a win over Scott Fraser. In doing so he won the Elite 1 Heavyweight championship. The end came at 4:59 of Round 2 as Fraser tapped to Severn’s arm triangle which he has used to secure his last three victories. The event took place at the Casino New Brunswick in Moncton, New Brunswick, Canada.
Severn, also a veteran of the WWF/E, is most widely known for his participation in some of the very early UFC tournaments. However, he has not competed for the company since UFC 9 when he won a 30 minute war over Ken Shamrock via split decision. Most recently he has been associated with King of the Cage, a promotion that has seen him go undefeated in six fights since 2009. He’s next scheduled to compete against Cal Worsham in three weeks at Gladiator Challenge- Legends Collide 2 in San Jacinto, California.
