Campbell McLaren Talks About The Early Days Of The UFC
Posted by Joseph Lee on 02.22.2014



In an interview with MMA Junkie, Campbell McLaren, one of the founders of the UFC, spoke about the early days of the promotion. Here are highlights:

On Dana White buying the company: "There was an old TV commercial, I think, for Remington shavers, and the guy who did the commercial said, ‘I liked the shaver so much, I bought the company'. I always think about Dana like that. Dana watched the first UFC. He looked at it and knew it was great."

On who gets credit for making the UFC what it is: "What Dana and Lorenzo did is, they saw something that was maybe a little too focused on the spectacle, the wildness, the circus atmosphere, and said, ‘These could be great live events. This could be a world-class sport.' What I did helped shape it and give it its basic DNA, and what they did is take it to a world-class level."
