In November 1993, Jimmerson competed at the very first Ultimate Fighting Championship competition, UFC 1. He came to his first match wearing only one boxing glove in order to protect his jab hand and leave free the other, which earned him the nickname of Art "One Glove" Jimmerson in the process. His opponent would be Brazilian jiu-jitsu master and eventual tournament winner Royce Gracie.Gracie opened the fight keeping distance with Jimmerson via front kicks. He then shot a double leg takedown and achieved mount over the boxer, grapevining his legs and tying up his arms. After Gracie landed the first headbutt, Jimmerson, who had been unsuccessfully trying to get out of the hold, tapped out. It was Jimmerson's first and last MMA match, as he returned to boxing shortly after.
