Dan Severn is one of the most dangerous men on the planet. Severn is a multi-time champion of the Ultimate Fighting Championship, a former National Wrestling Alliance champion and a trainer of champions.

Dan Severn has captured the attention of fight and wrestling fans all over the world since his 1994 debut in the Ultimate Fighting Championships [UFC]. Dan is known as "The Beast", a name given to him by Jim Brown during one of his many fights in the UFC. The native of Coldwater Michigan has accepted all challengers in any no holds barred, or professional wrestling events. On May 17, 1996, Dan was crowned the UFC Superfight Champion in his home state of Michigan. He demolished "The World's Most Dangerous Man", Ken Shamrock to regain the title. Dan is the only triple crown UFC champion in the sport today. Severn has won two eight man tournaments and The Ultimate Ultimate 1996, which pitted champions and runner-ups against each another to determine the true champion of the sport.

Severn has fought for many NHB and shootwrestling organizations including International Fighting Championship, Extreme Challenge, Future Brawl, United Shoot Wrestling Federation, Pride, U-Japan and a few Brazilian organizations.

Severn has developed a 10,000 square foot training facility on his property. This facility will be able to house and train individuals for martial arts, amateur wrestling, professional wrestling or the fight game. This facility is a haven for athletes to train and gain the knowledge that the Beast has to offer.

Dan is considered to be the most active fighter in the sport today.
