Fifty-four year old icon Dan Severn submitted Ian Asham by Kimura at the Iroquois MMA Championships II in Ohsweken, Ontario Saturday.
“The Beast” rides a seven-fight win streak dating to a February 2007 rear naked choke submission of Clifford Coon at Caged Combat Championship Fights in Oklahoma.
All but one of his seven victims had less than four professional fights. Asham was making his professional debut.
Severn raises his score to 83-15-7 with over 50 submission victories, most notably the keylock submission of Dave Beneteau at UFC 5 that gave Severn the championship and first belt awarded in the original MMA promotion.
