A few comments about the event.
Pat Smith said before the event that he could not feel pain, when he was subbed by Shamrock he certainly looked like he could feel pain ..... :-)
Apparently Gracie held on to the choke a little longer than he should have against Gordeau apparently for pay back because Gordeau blinded a fighter in the no rules tournament in Japan (an event that Royces brother won, Rickson Graice) It is in fact an actual DVD called Choke.
The one boxing glove technique was never used again :-)

Ray, groin strikes were actually not allowed in the first UFC event either, they weren't allowed until later believe it or not.
