It’s hard to believe that we’re coming up on 10 years since Pantera/Damageplan guitarist “Dimebag” Darrell Abbott was executed onstage at the Alrosa Villa on Columbus, Ohio. UFC welterweight Matt Brown was at the show on December 8th, 2004, and recently opened up to UFC on Fox about that night. Brown was well-versed enough in Damageplan to know more than one song, and he was in the second row when Nathan Gale assassinated Abbott and three others. Brown took cover behind a pillar as Gale continued to fire, and the person next to him was shot. He also witnessed Gale getting killed, and went back into the club to see Abbott before the remainder of the police showed up. After all this time, it’s pretty shocking to hear a firsthand account of what happened from someone in the club and it makes the whole thing seem fresh again.
