We cannot fully grasp this one either, but check this out: The Ultimate Fighting Championship is celebrating its 20th anniversary!
Man, gives us the chills just thinking about it. Can you believe the UFC, once hailed as taboo and illegal by the U.S. government, lasted this long? We love it. We love the UFC so much. To Boss Dana White, the head honchos at Zuffa, and the Octagon warriors we grew up idolizing, thank you for making it all happen!
Accordingly, this is the part where we pay homage to the sport that introduced us to Chuck, Tito, the Gracies, and the many, many Silvas fighting in the cage today. See, we always knew the UFC would make it, and here are 20 reasons why:
Because the UFC President loves and hates his employees just as much as we do.
Because winning streaks don't guarantee you title shots, but a silver tongue does.
Because the UFC is where legends (The Noguieras will never ever be submitted) and streaks (Jake Shields' six-year winning streak) go to die.
Because loudmouths and trash-talkers get what they deserve.
Because this is where guys known for head kicks get a taste of their own medicine.
