This article would have come sooner if I didn't have a sudden urge to rewatch UFC 14. I think it's the last time we will ever see someone submitted via 'chin in eye'. Mark went on to easily win the heavyweight tournament in his UFC debut over thirteen years ago. It's also important to note that if the Maurice Smith vs. Mark Coleman fight took place in Pride, the number of yellow cards issued for stalling would be immeasurable. Maurice claimed the UFC heavyweight belt from Coleman that night only to lose it five months later at UFC Japan: Ultimate Japan to a newcomer named Randy Couture. As evidenced by the result of UFC 118, The Natural is still effectively punching people in the head with above-average success, but The Smashing Machine has decided to hang up the gloves and sell luxury cars. Check out Mark Kerr's new bio on Infiniti Scottsdale's website. Props to frontrowbrian for the find.
Let Mark Kerr Fight for You
Mark Kerr grew up in Toledo Ohio where he learned to wrestle. He didn’t know then, that this boyhood fun would become the key to a huge part of his future. Mark excelled on the mat in his high school athletics, and as a result, he received a wrestling scholarship to Syracuse University, a national powerhouse for college grapplers.
While at Syracuse Mark won the 1992 NCAA Wrestling Championship at 190 pounds. After his days as an Orangeman, Mark continued to wrestle – but now for the National Freestyle team, and he was a member of the USA Team in the 1993 World Championships. This was the United State's first Team Championship in more than 50 years. A little later on, Mark also earned a spot as an alternate on the 1996 Olympic team.
In 1997, Mark started competing in Mixed Martial Arts, better known as ‘Ultimate Fighting’. Now as a professional, Mark went on to win three consecutive World Championships in 1999, 2000 and 2001. He finally hung up his gloves in 2009 when he joined the winning team here at Infiniti of Scottsdale.
Here at IOS, Mark has approached his new profession with the same dedication to excellence that it took for him to win World Titles. Certified in all Infiniti vehicles, Mark is making outstanding progress, and in March 2010, his 7th month with us, Mark won Salesman of the Month Honors. Mark Kerr is committed, steady, resolute, and he understands that success in our business comes as a direct result of being focused on what the customer wants.
Mark is the proud father of a 5yr old boy, his son Bryce. He enjoys the outdoors with Bryce, playing catch with him all the time and hiking with Bryce the trails around our beautiful city. When he can, Mark also enjoys playing golf and telling old stories of his days in the ring.
If, by some uncanny circumstance, I was in the market to buy an Infiniti, it would be impossible to not go through Mark Kerr. That statement should apply to all of you. The least you can do to show Mark Kerr that you appreciated his frate traneage through MMA is to drop $51,825 on a 2010 Infiniti G37 convertible. While you're at it, buy one for me and make sure Kerr autographs the dashboard. Thanks a lot frivolously rich random person that reads this. [Source]
