99 Problems but a Beast Ain’t One

Posted: May 24, 2011 in Local MMA, Marketing, PR, UFC

This weekend the circle of life carried on as one Beast devoured another.  A MA-fighter was lined up to face a UFC hall of famer and MMA legend in what was likely thought to be this veteran fighter’s 100th win.

Dan “The Beast” Severn (99-17) took on Bridgewater MA’s own Lee “The Beast” Beane     (7-2) at “The Beast Comes East” at the DCU Center in Worcester.  Beane defeated Severn by KO in the very first round.  Up to this fight, Severn was on a 9 fight win streak and looking for win #100 to add to his already impressive resume.

No, you’re not seeing things and I didn’t produce a sloppy copy/paste typo – they are both called “The Beast.”  I’m reminded of when a young Ric Flair took the title of “The Nature Boy” from Buddy Rogers.  Who knows, perhaps this is the passing of the beastly torch…

We all know who Severn is, but who is this young man who shocked a legend? The 26-year-old Beast, is a former Bridgewater-Raynham wrestling All-American, a division 1 wrestler from Brown and is currently training at Brighton’s  Wai-Kru MMA.  Beane was the Cage Fighting Xtreme’s first heavyweight champion and finished his first six opponents by TKO in the first round.

Congrats to the Beast and a plea for retirement for the Beast. Confused yet? You shouldn’t be.
