Edmond Tarverdyan is probably best known for coaching Ronda Rousey and her fellow fighters at the Glendale Fighting Club, but he actually had a short run as an MMA fighter himself.

In this clip from 2012, Tarverdyan takes on 4-16 Dominic Gutierrez. It's perhaps not the most impressive of opponents, but not a bad performance from Tarverdyan considering he only fought once before. If you keep a sharp eye out, you can also spot Ronda Rousey herself in his corner (and interestingly, she was a way bigger star than her coach at this point in her career).
