Here is a short history lesson on the first sanctioned MMA match in American History - "Judo" Gene Lebell VS Milo Savage, a top ranked boxer, in Salt Lake City, Utah, from December, 1963. It was Judo VS Boxing in this match, who came out on top?

NOT a true statement that Bruce Lee knew "nothing" about grappling before meeting Gene, as Rogan states. Nevertheless, the story about LeBell and Seagal is funny.

Joe Rogan talks about Steven Seagal getting choked out by Gene Lebell. From the Joe Rogan Experience Podcast on february 9th.
