DAMN! They Were Good: Farewell Melvin Manhoef – one of the most feared action fighters in history


DAMN! They Were Good celebrates the careers of the most exciting and influential fighters in MMA history, and in this episode, we are covering the career of one of the greatest action fighters of all-time, Melvin Manhoef.

During his 26-year, 103-fight career, Manhoef established himself as one of combat sports’ premiere knockout artists, competing in practically every major organization that has ever existed. Although he did not win a major title in boxing, Manhoef was able to deliver highlight-reel knockouts after highlight-reel knockout, which made him an appointment viewer for almost three decades.

In honor of Manhoef’s recent retirement, host Jed Meshew is joined by MMAFighting’s Alexander K. Lee to remember the unparalleled violence that was “No Mercy.”
