UFC 1: The Beginning

The Ultimate Fighting Championship (later renamed UFC 1: The Beginning) was the first mixed martial arts event by the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC), held at the McNichols Sports Arena in DenverColorado, on November 12, 1993. 

UFC 1 used an eight-man tournament format, with the winner receiving $50,000.[4] The tournament featured fights with no weight classes or judges.The two rules, no biting or eye gouging, were to be enforced only by a $1,500 fine. The match only ended by submissionknockout, or the fighter's corner throwing in the towel. Gloves were allowed, as Art Jimmerson showed in his Quarterfinal bout against Royce Gracie, which he fought with one boxing glove. Fights consisted of unlimited 5 minute rounds until a winner was decided.
Royce Gracie won the tournament by defeating Gerard Gordeau via tap out due to a rear naked choke. The referees for UFC 1 were João Alberto Barreto and Hélio Vigio, two veteran vale tudo referees from Brazil.
The commentary team for the pay-per-view was Bill WallaceJim Brown and Kathy Long, with additional analysis from Rod Machado and post-fight interviews by Brian KilmeadeJason DeLucia was an alternate for the event, having defeated Trent Jenkins in the alternate bout. However, as no fighter pulled out during the tournament, he was not called upon.
