Summary: worth the money
Comment: pretty good dvd set if you are a die hard mma fan, it is fun to see alot of talent after there ufc days. also get to see former wcw/wwe wrestler sean o'haire compete. if you just watch mma for the violence and dont really follow the sport you probally wont enjoy this set. the 5 events you get for the low price is well worth it! plus one of the best fights in mma history between penn and gomi, plus anderson silva's best knockout to date!! if you are a bj penn fan you MUST own this set!!

Summary: Hardcore MMA fans only.
Comment: I got this collection because I like to watch MMA. BJ Penn is one of my favorite fighters. Gomi vs Penn is a classic. A few bad things tho, the sound quality on some of the earlier ROTR is horrible. The camera angles are crappy at times. During the Rodrigo Gracie vs BJ fight, the camera looks into the crowd(during a fight) instead of THE fight ARRGGHHH!!! Other than that it was an ok collection. If you are a casual MMA fan, I wouldn't recommend it because there are a lot of fighters that you may not have heard of. For hardcore MMA fans only. Hawaii in the HOUSE!!!

Summary: Great price for 5 events, just don't expect Pride/UFC quality
Comment: I just received these last week and while I was disappointed in the quality and some of the match ups, the price makes them worth while. ***NO SPOILERS IN THIS REVIEW***

The Good: The production quality, fights, and recognizable fighters get better with each event. Notable names from Pride and the UFC show up more and more frequently (Penn,Gomi,Gracie's,Tank,Cabbage,Kimo,Trigg,Silva etc.). Hawaiian rules allow for knees on the ground, ouch. Lot's of fights, each event about 2 hrs. each. Great value.

The Bad: Still nowhere near Pride/UFC quality dvd's (better than King of the Cage dvd's). Early events are mostly unfamiliar Hawaiian fighters (granted the event is in Hawaii) that aren't all that great and make for some lackluster fights. The referee makes some questionable calls. He'll stop the fight alot to check cuts that aren't that bad and stand up fights when there's action on the ground. He looks like a poor mans John McCarthy.

The Ugly: The commentary on ROTR 4 is absolutley awful, among the worst I've ever heard, but it get's better with each event. The atrocious editing and camera work in ROTR 6. In the main event Penn vs. Gracie, the camera man moves from the fight, not once but TWICE to see a fight in the audience when the main event fight is still going!!! And the fight before that one has a great TKO finish but we don't get to see it as we're given a nice shot of the referees butt in front of the action. Both of these screw ups thanks in part to the wise decision to have only one camera shooting the action. Can you say amateur hour? The pre fight interviews on ROTR 7 are hilariously bad too.

The Verdict: I can't tell you how disappointed I was when I fist popped in ROTR 4. The audio/video quality was terrible, the majority of the fights were no names and boring and I thought I'd been suckered in to buying a KOTC clone. But the events, fights, and production quality really do get better with each event. I'll save you some time on ROTR 4, just watch the Paul Buentello fight and the Penn/Gomi main event. The Penn/Gomi fight is awesome and one of the better fights you'll find anywhere. The price saves this set and warrants a recommendation. If it cost much more, the rating would only go down.

Summary: A Must Purchase
Comment: I seriously can not imagine why you would pass on this. A outstanding package, 5 events for under $10 (currently). This wouls still be a bargain at $40, in my opinon. Unlike a lot of the current wave of lesser known (i.e. non-Pride or UFC) releases, this one really delivers with quality fights and a ton of "known" fighters. It doesnt feel cheap and isnt loaded with a ton of poor quality fights just to bulk up runtime (I'm looking at you King Of The Cage). As someone else mentioned, the Penn/Gomi fight is worth the price of admission alone, but there is so much more here. I'm shocked at how little this is selling for, and really encourage any MMA fan looking to branch out, or looking for something to tide you over until the next Pride/UFC release, to purchase this. You cant go wrong, and I PROMISE you wont feel burned like I have in the past with other "bulk" MMA releases (Cage Rage, KOTC, etc). This is pure quality and I am really happy to have in my collection. BUY THIS!!!
