UFC veteran Nam Phan discusses what it felt like the first time he stepped up for his first MMA fight.

“I was 18 years old and I was still in High School. The guy was a really tough wrestler. He took me down and I started elbowing him in the back of the head. When the rounded ended he had blood all over his blond hair. I won the fight after the first round. We had the break and he couldn’t come back for the second.”

Phan was known as having one of the biggest hearts in MMA and put on two legendary fights vs Leonard Garcia. With 20 professionals wins to his credit Phan tells us what it was like in his first fight, all the way back in October of 2001 when Phan was just 19 years old.
