For professional wrestling fans of a certain age, the memory of The 1-2-3 Kid’s shocking upset of Razor Ramon on the May 17, 1993 episode of WWF Raw sticks out in their mind as a formative moment in their fandom. That’s certainly true of Chuck O’Neil , a man who went on serve as a cast member on “The Ultimate Fighter” Season 13 and multiple title reigns on the regional MMA scene. O’Neil (16-8) now competes in CES MMA, where he won the welterweight title from fellow UFC veteran Ricardo Funch and defended it successfully once before dropping the belt to current UFC fighter Dominique Steele. When he isn’t competing in MMA, O’Neil is working on his burgeoning job as a professional wrestler, a career choice easily traced back to Sean Waltman’s moonsault that propelled him from “jobber” to world stage fixture. “I saw a Saturday afternoon episode of WWF television back in the day and saw 1-2-3 Kid beat Razor Ramon,” O’Neil told MMAjunkie.
