Customer Rating: Summary: UFC in the 1990's Comment: I still remember when I first purchased UFC 3 on VHS in the 90's. It was so fresh, underground, and controversial. There were allot fewer rules and no weight classes, and the fighters were masters of their own disciplines. I liked seeing a master of jiu jitsu face off against a master of kickboxing. Today nobody really has a single discipline (they are all mixed martial artist).
I liked how the tournament addressed age old questions, such as which fighting discipline is the best, or can a David really beat a Goliath? I also like the classic way the tournament was run. 8 fighters began and winning fighters would advance to the next round to face each other until only one man was left standing as champion.
Yes, I agree that today's fighters are probably better than the ones you will see in these old tournaments, but these guys laid the ground work. Customer Rating: Summary: The Most Real Sport in the World in Its Infancy Comment: Any fan of the UFC will want this product to see just how it was back in the day when the UFC was on its way to making the word Octagon a normally-used word. This is history and is essential viewing to appreciate today's UFC and the excellent duo of Mike Goldberg and Joe Rogan - not to mention Big John McCarthy. Customer Rating: Summary: Royce Gracie.......Gracie Comment: By todays standard, these guys will all seem pretty primative. But, back in the day, everyone thought that karate chop man would take down the world. So now we have a better understanding of fighting and it is much more evolved, thanks to the Gracie family who started the UFC to share their fighting style with the world. Buy this, enjoy it, and in turn, you will appreciate the skill of the fighters today. Customer Rating: Summary: there are no rules Comment: If you are reading this it means you are probably a hardcore UFC fan. You will enjoy the fights I am not going to spoil it for you by telling you who wins. Its great to get this because you get to see how the sport evovles over time, for the better or for the worse, it is up to you to decide. I would recommend going to ebay to buy UFC 1-30, that is what I did becasue UFC only released 1-8 of the UFC classics series.
