May 27, 2006 - In UFC 60s main event, a legend returns as Royce Gracie battles Matt Hughes in perhaps the most important bout in the history of the Ultimate Fighting Championship. Please check out the rest of our UFC store for other great merchandise.

Summary: Not fair to Joyce
Comment: I loved the event, but didn't like how they used the Matt vs. Joyce event to say the new MMA warriors are so much more superior to the old ones. If you ask me, Joyce looked unprepared for the fight and not the same at all. Just because he was a legend, he shouldn't have become a target to try and prove the evolution of MMA. The only proof necessary is to watch the sport now versus the first 10 events.

Summary: UFC #60
Comment: The Gracie-Hughes match was predictable...Hughes is much too skilled a fighter, and much too smart to fall into a Gracie trap. Not to take anything away from Gracie--He is awesome within his discipline, but the UFC has evolved beyond the uni-dimentional fighter. The rest of the card was, as always, a very good show.

Summary: A Solid Card
Comment: This was a good card. I don't know why the people who love Pride like to come on and give all the UFC stuff 1 star. It would be great if you could support both organizations and help the sport grow overall. A lot of old fans were drawn back to the UFC with Royce coming back for this fight. Many are disappointed now that there are rules and regulations to make this a legitamite sport now rather than a street fight in a cage. A lot of people were also upset at how easily Royce was pounded by a modern fighter. If you are a Royce fan, then you might want to skip this. Overall the card is full of knockouts and submissions, with only 1 very competative fight going the distance. The only thing I wish is that the UFC had not taken out all the post fight interviews save for the main event. The entire running time is less than 2 hours, so they had plenty of room. I would have also liked some bonus material. Weigh in's, back stage stuff, etc. All 9 fights from the event are included, and I certainly think this is a good purchase.

Summary: Nothing like real fighting
Comment: It's always interesting seeing how a few guys will beat each other up. That certainly happened in this event. However, forget the clock, take off the gloves, throw away the rules and have a fight, somethign the UFC hasn to allowed to happen in a long time.

The thing that made the UFC a hit in the first place was that styles were pitted againt each other. To allow this to be valid, and to replicate a street fight, there were almost no rules and there were certainly no gloves. I mean, how many people have on 4 0z. gloves when they're walking down the street and some guy jumps them?

Anyway, the main event is a sham for just that reason. Gracie gets pounded by Hughes, three years after Gracie contentedly stated "I've already fought my battles." Gracie was not in this fight, mentally, for who knows what reason. Assuredly, he got lots of money for the gig.

All I know is that Hughes would not have been able to swing so wildly at Gracie's head without those little gloves on. He would have broken his knuckles. I'd love to see any of these modern fighters fight a 26 year old Royce Gracie, prior to his back injuries, with no gloves on and no rules. Royce's best strike back in the day was a headbutt for crying out loud, and the soft UFC doesn't allow those. Hughes is an athlete, not a fighter.

Summary: -2000 Stars
Comment: Just terrible and not worth the money. The fights are horrible and the fighters have very little skill. Puchase PRIDE instead where the best fighters in the WORLD come to fight.
