Dan Severn Discusses His Legacy, His Decision to Retire, More
Posted by Larry Csonka on 01.07.2013

- Dan Severn recently spoke about his legacy in the sport of MMA and more. Here are the highlights…

On His Retirement: "Of course it's hard," he said. How could it not be after almost two decades of it? But at some point you just get too old, and this is one of those sports where if you stay in it too long, it can cost you dearly," he said.

On Trying For One Last Fight Against Shamrock, Coleman or Gracie: "It seemed like there was interest, but time kept going on, and certain terms couldn't come to fruition," Severn said. "I told them if it was going to happen, it needed to happen in 2012, (that when) January 2013 hits, I'm moving on to the next chapter of my life. And it did not materialize."

On How Others Will Remember His Legacy: "We'll be a little paragraph, maybe a couple sentences in the book somewhere. That's how it is. It's kind of like getting older. You can't stop it. It's just one of those things."

On How He Sees His Career: "I pride myself on knowing that I achieved all my success on my own ability," Severn said. "I didn't pop a pill. I didn't stick a syringe in my tokhes. When I look at myself in the mirror, I know I achieved all my success on my own skills."
