If it was not for the success of the first UFC event, nobody would know who Royce Gracie, Conor McGregor or Jon Jones was. Everybody who participated at ‘UFC 1’ played an important role in the company’s future.

Rosier was in the second fight to air live on the pay-per-view and got the energy flowing in the arena with an exciting TKO win against Zane Frazier.

His death was reported by several media outlets. Rosier was just 53 years old.
