The MMA World in 2001

Nearly everyone over the age of 25 remembers exactly where they were twelve years ago on September 11, 2001 when hijacked passenger planes slammed into the World Trade Center, the Pentagon, and a field in Pennsylvania in what ultimately marked the worst terrorist attack in American history. Since then society has changed in countless ways, some positive and others not so much. Rather than focus on the bleaker side of the story, it’s time to instead take a glimpse at the world of MMA from that time and see how different the world looked back then in that regard instead.
