    Six Degrees to Royce Gracie. How fast can you do it?

    I was thinking about the Six Degrees to Kevin Bacon game and I was wondering if you could do it for MMA fighters as well. The birth of "mainstream" MMA has to be UFC 1 back in 1993. So let's see how long it takes to go from a current fighter back to Royce Gracie, the UFC 1 Champion.

    Let me try first with what I hope will be a fairly easy one. One of the all time greats and current Light Heavyweight UFC Champ Jon Jones age 33.

    Here we go:

    Jones Jones fought:
    1. Quinton "Rampage" Jackson who fought
    2. Fedor Emeiianenko who fought
    3. Matt Mitrione who fought
    4. Kimbo Slice who fought
    5. Ken Shamrock who fought
    6. Royce Gracie


    Feel free to add your own! The younger the fighter you start with the more impressive... you must start with a current fighter.

    I'm stealing from post #2 a bit here... this fighter is a few months older than post #2 but the path is quicker.

    2. Matt Hughes who fought

    Lots of young guys making their name off of B.J. Penn these days
