March 4, 2006 - UFC middleweight champion Rich "Ace" Franklin defends his title for the second time against top-ranked contender David "The Crow" Loiseau before a packed house at the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas. The eight-bout card also features a battle for the welterweight number-one contender spot between former welterweight champion BJ "The Prodigy" Penn and rising star Georges "Rush" St. Pierre. Please check out the rest of our UFC store for other great merchandise.

Summary: Great Night of Fights
Comment: This was a great event! Everyone is complaining about half the card going to decision but those fights were the best ones on the dvd! Rich Franklin is one of the best fighters ever to step into the octagon and he shows his dominance in his fight with Loiseau. I guess GSP vs Bj Penn turned out to be an upset because everyone was expecting the prodigy to win! The card also features Yves Edwards, Mike Swick, Sam Stout, and Spencer Fisher! Don't let the other reviews fool you, this was a great event so buy it now to add to your UFC collection!

Summary: Not One of the Great Ones
Comment: This was just an okay event. I didn't like the whole idea of USA vs Canada as it had a lot of great fighters being booed just because they were Canadian. This event saw the return of B.J. Penn which is the main reason for getting this dvd. You get to see stars George St. Piere, Rich Franklin and rising star Mike Swick. Most of the card is decisions. Two very close fights, but the rest were just okay. The dvd itself is not the best. The picture quality seems off compared to other recent releases. Also, save for the main events, everything else seems to have been cut but the acutal fights themselves. Even the minute in between rounds is gone. I would rather have had it play out like a live event and heard the interviews, the between round talk, etc. Not a must buy for anyone but a completionist.

Summary: Great fights....poor quality DVD
Comment: This is a great UFC card for the fights themselves. They are all action packed and interesting. While several of the fights go to the decision, in most cases they were very close calls. This card also introduces two very exciting new (to the UFC) Canadian fighters Sam Stout and Mark Hominick.
Unfortunately, this may very well be the poorest quality modern day UFC DVD yet. For starters, literally everything but the fights is cut out, no post fight interviews, no commentary between matches, or anything like that. In addition, the quality of the filming itself is clearly off, it's as if it's a bootleg copy. This will be immediately obvious open viewing of the DVD.
In any event, it's still not to be missed for the fights.

Summary: Middleweight title + Track Meet = Rich Franklin vs. David Loiseau
Comment: With the title dubbed "USA vs. Canada", it was a Canadian fighter who won the crowd over with his comeback performance and post-fight speech in which got on his hands and knee's and begged for his title shot. George St. Pierre's popularity sky rocketed in this event. This was the event where he went from a fighter to a star. He didn't have to overcome the crowd who was partial for both BJ Penn and himself, what he had to do was overcome the former Welterweight champion, BJ Penn. St. Pierre showed great heart after taking a beating in the first round as BJ was one step ahead of him through the round. But BJ seemed to have relaxed and let the final 2 rounds go to St. Pierre, which led to St. Pierre getting his rematch with Matt Hughes, which is a topic that'll be discussed another time.

The fight of the night in my opinion was Nathan Marquardt vs. Joe Doerksen. Marquardt was boo'ed in his UFC debut when he faced Ivan Salaverry in the inaugural "Ultimate Fight Night", but didn't dissappoint this time around. Doerksen lived up to his word by keeping this fight from being dull/boring. These 2 went toe-to-toe on the ground and standing. They were timid at first, but they let their hands fly as the fight progressed and the ground game was fantastic.

The other fight that I loved was Spencer Fisher vs. Sam Stout. Stout's original opponent was Kenny Florian who was forced off of the card due to a back injury during training. On short notice, literally 2 days, Fisher made the cut from 170lbs+ down to 155lbs. Fisher dominated the first round, but the short notice and weight cutting took it's toll in the final 2 rounds. A valiant effort by both men which took the fight to a split decision....great fight, other nominee for fight of the night by die hard fans.

In this event, you can see one man run 2.7 miles in one fight. David Loiseau looked more like a cross country runner than a mixed martial artist. You can't blame him, he was out-gunned by the stronger, hungrier, and more skilled defending Middleweight champion Rich Franklin.

Summary: Great UFC PPV
Comment: This has a great battle between Rich Franklin and #1 contender David Loiseau. 5 rounds of full action. It's funny are the only 2 negative reviewers is from jenspulver11 and masakatsufunaki7. Who seem to only obsess and write negative reviews about the ufc. Look at there review history. It looks like all these two do when they are bored is look for ufc DVD's to write bad reviews on. Pride is a great organization but ufc puts on way better shows. Yes pride does have better fighters but none are as interesting as the fighters in the UFC, except for just a few in the Pride organization. It seems all those two other reviews just love to obsess about pride and probably *** it to Mirko "Cro Cop." You two *** need to go get a life. He better yet just go *** each other. Last I remember is that Jens Pulver established his career in the UFC so obviously you must like the ufc with a name like jenspulver11. Anyway enough ranting about those to *** bags. This is a great UFC card with some memorable fights. Definitely worth your time to check this one out.
