Oleg Taktarov Introduced Freddie Roach to MMA, But Almost Got Bit

By Sherdog.com Staff Nov 13, 2012
Freddie Roach, on “Rewind,” discussing how Oleg Taktarov introduced him to MMA:

“This was like 15 years ago, I think. It was a long time ago. I remember I was teaching him how to punch and he put me in a chokehold and I told him, ‘If you don’t let me go, I’m going to bite [you].’ He was a very strong guy. I was working with him, and when he got his first win by knockout, by a punch, he came to me and hugged me. He was so happy. He’s the first MMA fighter that I ever heard of or knew. He’s a great friend now.”
